Just some informative items. For those interested in the current state
of the U.S. military in the Gulf region, this is probably typical of as
good a succinct (and public) summary as one is going to get at this
time:

On another list I earlier said that the French supertanker apparently
attacked by terrorists off the coast of Yemen was picked *because* it
was French, and speculated that it had to do with UN Security Council

CF-18s or the 3 or 4 destroyers and frigates that area already in the
Gulf)
