I hope this is well presented in the press so that Obama can learn of it.

Hmm. Did the order go out while Hussein was on the front 9? Or had they already made the turn?

Anyone else concerned that it was just a month ago that Iran was talking about sinking a US Carrier and had a scale model barge to demonstrate some of its weapons on.

I don't trust the Big Zero and this whole things with Iran coming in to help “us” just doesn't feel right.

Well, if it’s anything like the 400 surface to air missiles that went to Benghazi?

I believe we are all uneasy not knowing what they are planning to get out of this ‘so-called help’.

Check this out about Turkey:

we might get conflicting reports over the next few days over who actually ordered the carrier into the Gulf.

the way this circus is being run, maybe moochelle’s mother gave the order - who knows ?

It’s only because no matter what happens, it’ll still be “Bush’s” fault.

For 3 years, my friend’s been telling me “I think Hussein’s goals include LOSING an AIRCRAFT CARRIER.”

Remember when Obamatollah ordered 5 aircraft carriers into port, at the same time, for servicing? They lined them up like sardines.

The Navy was like WTF is Hussein doing?!

Since Pearl Harbor, THAT ISN’T DONE. B/c it makes them easy to attack and destroy all at once.

So today, as Iran invades Iraq to transform Iraq into its new colony, Hagel sent the USS GWBush (Aircraft Carrier) to the Gulf.

Keep an eye on that carrier.

Hussein’s pulling ‘scorched earth’ at every turn, and I won’t be surprised if he sets up that carrier to get attacked by his moslem allies.

Remember what happened during Benghazi?

US Navy commanding officers refused Hussein’s orders to ‘pick their noses’ for 8 hours while jihadists murdered Ambassador Stevens and tried to murder the other 35 Americans inside the Consulate and CIA Annex.

So the Navy guys refused Hussein’s stand-down order and started preparing to launch rescue forces toward Benghazi, when suddenly............. Their #2 officers (from CIA) relieved them of duty.

Then soon after, they got fired.

I think we’ll see that again, except this time, Iran will launch Chinese-made missiles at our carrier.

It’ll be a huge party for the goddamn diaperhead and his favorite camel(s) in the Lincoln Bedroom.

Gee, if this had been done before they gobbled up a third of the country and nipped it in the bud, this would be far less serious now and require far less of a response. Now many more are in danger and more resources and time will have to be spent to quell the advance if it can be stopped, and Iraq has had to become more dependent on Iran because they were abandoned by the U.S.

Yup. The goal is to get a Nimitz class carrier sunk. Why? Because that would be devastating to the United States’ ability to project power around the world.

Hmmm...

Sink an American Aircraft Carrier in the 'Strait of Hormuz' and watch what that does to oil prices. The fact the carrier is named after Bush would be a two fer for Obama and his muslim terrorist brothers.

The carrier has indeed been given orders to deploy but what really upsets the Navy's top brass is that President Obama issues orders that all armaments, ordnance and defensive systems were to be removed before setting sail.

The officers of the carrier have been issued several documents that will then be passed onto the ISIS commanders. Those documents are letters of intent to slap mild sanctions on their (ISIS’s) bank accounts in US banks.

THIS, ladies and gentlemen is the true application of SOFT POWER...

Nah, the carrier is a gift to the leader of ISIS, to show our respect and friendship. The Obama Navy is not about projecting power. Its main goal is Muslim outreach.

How much “red paint” is the G.H.W. Bush carrying for the lines odumbo will draw in the sands?

When you send troops to battle, you do not do it with “paint brushes”. IF we go into Irag again, it damn well better be to WIN or do not go at all.

Sending troops to their slaughter because it is both Obama and Allah's will.

LOOK! Over here! Ignore that America is under invasion from the South! Next will be an attack on Iran’s atom bomb facilities by “someone” that will be completely ineffective. What else? Clever minds are planning the complete distruction of America and I sit here, banging on a keyboard!

God help us all! We don’t seem to be able to. Happy Fathers Day!

Maybe Obama is moving a carrier group to the gulf to protect Iran from Israel?

I am sure it is the GHWB turn in line for deployment. If something happens over there it will be “Bush’s Fault”
