Aircraft carriers, Iran hardliners, Sri Lanka, China-Iran, Veep

The US sends a rare double-aircraft carrier message to Iran. The US Navy has two carrier strike groups near Iran, training in Iran related capabilities.

Iran’s hardliners can ill afford US sanctions. They will retaliate. The removal of US sanctions waivers on Iranian oil imports will harm the hardliners.

Sri Lanka, and the nice words leadership problem of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn. Neither leader has what it takes to confront enemy threats.

The defining hypocrisy of a China-Iran alliance. The two nations are ideological opposites but increasing operational partners.

Veep’s Secret Service problem. The HBO series misses an opportunity for better realism and more humor by neglecting the Secret Service.
