So the Bush is the only "deployed" carrier out there at the moment, and even that one is headed for *a* port shortly. Would love to hear from our Naval folks as to the potential logic behind shelving every single CVN.

Ok, so Nimitz just went back out. That’s still a lot of ships tied up. Here’s hoping they’re undergoing rapid replenishment pending immediate sailing.

hadn’t seen that. is it real? if so, looks like pearl harbor was the japanese taking the bait so the US could get into the war

these days we don’t need an excuse to get into a war... we had one with 9-11.

so this would be about diverting the focus of that war... most likely to russia or some traditionally allied country (ie: Israel or Britain).. if our carriers get hit while in port.

Obama is playing Hardball with Putin.

Letting Putin know he can’t be pushed around.

Hagel probably called them all in so they could attend the conference on African-American women’s hairstyle changes in the military.

So much easier to sink if they are not moving.

Next he will probably bring all the SSBNs into port, daring the Russians...

So, I’m guessing Obama/Biden is setting “The Bush” to get blamed for something - AGAIN!

Why is sh!t like this even available for the public to see. I just don’t understand in the slightest. Letting your shield down and letting everyone know it.

I went on a Christmas party boat cruise in San Diego, December of 2012. Not sure how normal it was, but there were a lot of U.S.Navy ships docked, there. Pearl Harbor II was all I could think about.

Aircraft carriers aren’t exactly the most discreet of ships. It’s difficult to hide them, particularly when they’re tied up in port, and you can bet every world government with any kind of intelligence service at all has someone living near the various Navy ports with a good view of the harbor and a surprisingly-high-quality set of binoculars. This information is nothing that can’t be found out in a couple of hours and a few phone calls anyway.

I worked as a navy contractor for a few years and at that time (mid 90s) the information as to when a ship was in port was classified confidential. We always found this amusing because information as to when it was deployed was not classified.

I don’t know if they still classify that info but easy to obtain or not, if it’s classified it’s classified.

I’d like at least a couple of the others to be underway somewhere out in the ocean. The world political situation is particularly unstable at the moment, with one of the few other major world powers involved in something very close to combat operations and generally acting very provocatively. A second major world power has been making a fair amount of noise about their control over significant areas of the Pacific and related bodies of water. The US’s interests aren’t really served by having its primary force projection systems tied up where they can’t react quickly and are easily located.

If you want to know which ships are in port just ask the Dominoes Pizza Delivery guy.

Unlike our potus, Putin seems to prefer women. Whereas nobama likes to play the black guys in prison “hardball”.

“Why is sh!t like this even available for the public to see.”

Why? because EVERYTHING the liberals do centers around the next election. How else would their liberal peacenik base be able to see nobama is trying his very best to surrender?
