The U.S. aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush is being moved to the Persian Gulf in case President Barack Obama authorizes airstrikes in Iraq, CNN reported Friday.
Iraq is in turmoil after an al Qaeda offshoot, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, made advances this week in the north and north-central portions of the country, including the seizure of Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city.
On Thursday, Obama said he was mulling all options on Iraq, saying, "I don't rule anything out." His spokesman, Jay Carney, later clarified, saying the president is not considering putting troops on the ground.
OMG...this administration is not so subtle!
In other words, searching for a military solution that furthers Christian-killing and Jew-killing, Chhhhammmmmas and the mudslime brotherhood and/or weakens Israel, the US, western civilization.
Now that Iran and the US are on the same side in Iraq, does this mean we’ll help Iran take over the Saudi/Kuwaiti oil fields?
Jeez, Obama’s really messed this up.
He’ll probably use it to sink the Bismarck...oh....wait....
Just an FYI, the Israelis have been hit (five times, if I recall) from shore based missiles fired by Hezbollah.
Whether our guys are safe depends on the rules of engagement. The death rate under Obama is many times that under Bush because of ROI designed to spare the enemy at the expense of American lives.
First to say-—BUSH’S FAULT!!!
ISIS are Uncle Scam's troops on the ground. The US/NATO and Saudi Arabia have been arming them for the past three years. The ISIS just didn't spring up from the desert sands.
A smart man says all options are on the table, while a fool says we wont use ground troops. The former gives the terrorists something to think about, while the latter gives them the green light.
Ohhhhhhhhhh we’re moving a ship. This ought to scare ISIS into submission. /s
If they’re going to get all the Americans/Westerns out, they’re going to need more helicopters than that.
Hope he doesn’t get it sunk. No offense to our Navy, but you just don’t know what imPOTUS is capable of.
Would the Saudis sit still for the US intervening militarily, to result in furthering an effort by Iran to take over all of southern Iraq?
Impossible. Our Government would have told us, and the MSM.
Active Duty ping.
...the fact that the carrier is filled with illegal aliens from Latin America (instead of military equipment) tends to undercut the menace...
I have a family member on this carrier.
It would be a crowning achievement for him!
Stupid Iraqis. Pony up some gold for Hillary and Obama. There’s the answer.
