It is being reported (here, here, here and here ) that the United States has announced that it is going to postpone “Austere Challenge 12”, the US-Israel joint-missile defense drill slated to start up in April. According to most reports the U.S. has backed off of the potentially inflammatory drills due to current instability of the region and the lack of evidence of Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon. But there may be more to it than meets the eye of the average MSM stenographer.
Was this run-up to WWIII simply a game of imperial brinksmanship? Were the NATO powers trying to force Russia and China to allow a Libyan type sanction against Syria by threatening all out world war starting in Iran? Did we blink first or did the major powers who have been defending Syria agree to some backroom deal trading their tacit support of a R2P bombing of Syria for an agreement to leave Iran alone for now?

UPDATE: Prof Michel Chossudovsky at Global Research wrote about NATO and U.S. involvement on March 7th 2011. He wrote about how they were fermenting a fake revolution with well armed mercenaries and how they had mercs and US troops on the ground in Libya as far back as Feb. 24th 2011. He shows that it was their intention to create so much strife as to justify a UN military intervention. The following is from DEBKA File Feb. 25th 2011:
“(Feb. 24th 2011) Hundreds of US, British and French military advisers have arrived in Cyrenaica, Libya’s eastern breakaway province, debkafile’s military sources report exclusively.
The advisers, including intelligence officers, were dropped from warships and missile boats at the coastal towns of Benghazi and Tobruk Thursday Feb. 24, for a threefold mission:
1. To help the revolutionary committees controlling eastern Libyan establish government frameworks for supplying two million inhabitants with basic services and commodities;
2. To organize them into paramilitary units, teach them how to use the weapons they captured from Libyan army facilities, help them restore law and order on the streets and train them to fight Muammar Qaddafi’s combat units coming to retake Cyrenaica.
3. To prepare infrastructure for the intake of additional foreign troops. Egyptian units are among those under consideration”
Our forces have been there since the beginning. When I wrote that the Libyan “rebels” looked NOTHING like the pro-democracy revolution in Tunisia and Egypt and Bahrain and Yemen… I was absolutely correct. These are not rebels, they are mercenaries hired by outside forces and being used to create the ILLUSION of a revolution so that the U.S. and France and Britain can force yet another regime change.

Saudi police opened fire Thursday to disperse a protest in the section where minority Shiites live, leaving at least one man injured, as the government toughened its efforts to prevent a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world from reaching the kingdom.
The rare violence raised concern about a crackdown ahead of planned protests after Friday prayers in different cities throughout the oil-rich kingdom. Violence there could reverberate through the world’s markets because of the importance of Saudi oil exports.
