Pentagon Sends Combat Planes to Gulf

News on "Operation Infinite Justice"---how dare they!
....and, What are we waiting for? We can't let this begin unopposed!
I just finished reading that The Pentagon on Wednesday ordered combat aircraft to begin moving to bases in the Persian Gulf area, which are the first concrete sign of preparations to retaliate for last week's "terrorist attacks", a senior defense official said.

The deployment has been dubbed ''Operation Infinite Justice,'' the official said.

Likely to be included in the force of combat aircraft are F-16s, F-15s and possibly B-1 bombers, the official said.

The United States already has a sizeable and well-developed military presence in the Persian Gulf, with combat aircraft stationed in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and elsewhere. It appeared likely that many of the extra combat aircraft to be deployed in the next several days would go to Kuwait and Bahrain, the official said.

''We have a lot of evidence about a number of countries harboring terrorists that are working across the globe,'' Defense Secretary Rumsfeld told CNN.
