An increase in military activity.

We regularly get planes flying nearbye. Mainly commerical traffic to John Lennon International, but also other bits and pieces, - light aircraft coming and giong, helicopters going to and from the gas rigs in Liverpool bay. There's a lot less of them now. Presumably the gas rigs are depleted, or possibly they now go from a more convenient airport, like perhaps Blackpool maybe.

And we get fast jets. The RAF base in Valley, Anglesey is only about 60 miles away as the Hawk flies. They follow a course up the middle of the Mersey. usually northwards an out into the Irish sea. They travel a lot faster than the 737's and Bombardiers that constitute most of the JLIA traffic. They seem to come from nowhere, they flash by, and they're gone in moments.

And there's been quite a lot more of it going on over the last couple of weeks, unless I'm very much mistaken.

I can't help feeling that another war is coming. If so, it will almost certainly be with Iran, will be agressively pursued following some pretext or other, and like the Iraq conflict, it will turn into a mess that helps Iranian people not at all.

Another reason of course why Blair and Bush should be banked up in the chokey for the rest of their natural lives. There's no deterrent to the current shower of shit doing exctly the saem thing.

driving lessons in Wallasey? learn to drive in Wirral? driving instructor in Birkenhead?

Rumsfeld and Cheney too, arguably the principal protagonists.
