A colleague of mine who has a relative in the military says the preparations are already going forward. His relative is in a position to know.
A former student of mine, a young Marine, tells me their training is now aimed toward Iran.
A correspondent writing to Bartcop from Germany says that the military air traffic there is of the same nature as before the Iraq invasion.
All anecdotal, of course. Who knows what will happen?
Is catastrophe around the corner?
My sense of dread is growing.
