Peace breaks out....
or rather we might see some “friendly” (imaginative use of the term) governments falling to the Islamics and Muslim Brotherhoods.....
Because there is no reason to worry about strife or war in the region. Leon just being a good Hell Hound for his master.
The Navy is probably going to discontinue Saturday “deliveries” too.
So the navy will have to scrape by with 2010-era levels of readiness in the Gulf? No carrier strike groups anywhere near the Persian Gulf would be a drastic downgrade in readiness, one carrier strike group seems like plenty to sit and watch the water.
That’s a great plan. If there are none of our forces there to confront, there will be no confrontation. Perhaps the near-term threat of Nuc has disapated.
There will be no budget savings. The carrier force will still exist. The crews will still be maintained.
The move is confirmation of the nuclear manufacturing underground explosion. The threat is gone
Things begin to heat up with Iran, so the DOD and the Admirals decide to get out of Dodge, or maybe they’re bringing the forces back in case they’re needed when 0bama orders an attack on American citizens?
Would be awfully cynical if Obama knows something is about to happen over there, but he can blame the evil GOP for us not being there to respond or project strength...
