"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

This may be the strongest signal yet that action in Iraq is imminent.

The United States yesterday deployed an aircraft carrier from Japan to the Korean peninsula, as a Washington envoy warned that "all options" were available to deal with the nuclear stand-off with Pyongyang. The day after it was revealed that Japan was drawing up plans to evacuate its nationals if war threatened on the Korean peninsula, USS Kitty Hawk left its home port of Yokosuka.

It is a message to North Korea (and subtly China) that while we are occupied, we will not ignore South East Asia.
