“I’m saving a seat for you,” an invitation from Barack Obama. Another email in my inbox today. Please donate to my campaign and have a chance to have dinner with me. Obama is including the airfare and lodging. The donation is up from $3 to $5 or whatever.  Can this man give it a rest for one day?

Friend —

I’m only going to get to sit down to dinner with grassroots supporters on this campaign one last time.

It’s one of the most meaningful things we do, and represents exactly the kind of politics we believe in: All of us, at one table, together.

So if you’re someone who is helping to build this campaign, I want to meet you. I want to thank you in person. And I’d love to hear what’s on your mind.

If you haven’t participated in one of these before, now’s the time because this is our last opportunity to sit down together before the end of the campaign — I hope you’ll take me up on it.

Your donation of $5 or whatever you’re able to chip in will automatically enter you:

Thanks.

Barack

P.S. — Flight and hotel are on us. All you have to do is come and eat.

Armada of international naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike, war games?

Via The Telegraph

Cruisers, aircraft carriers and minesweepers from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s oil traded by sea.

In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will  begin an annual 12-day exercise.

This caught my attention yesterday.  Is it all about oil?
