How many carriers do we have over there now within ‘shooting distance’? 3?
Im glad we only get a small portion of our oil from the middle east...
I don’t believe for one minute that 0bama is sending our Naval resources to the Persian Gulf/Straits of Hormuz for military action against Iran, he intends to use our forces as a ‘buffer’ between Israel and Iran, using our carriers to establish air superiority in the region in order to prevent Israel from carrying out any strikes against Iran.
Of course the net result will be to protect the mullahs and their little sockpuppet Ahmadinnerjacket but the stated purpose for media/global consumption is that the United States is acting as a ‘peacemaker’ in the region.
THAT is what 0bama meant about ‘having Israel’s back’, and our naval forces are the knife he’s going to stab them with.
I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but the perfidy of that Kenyan piece of sh*t has been proven time and again.
Let’s hope it is not for a war with Israel. You never know with this bunch.
How much of this is tied to the talked about release of the strategic oil reserves?
Hmmm, how convenient.
Election coming up?
Obviously a giant game of poker - throwing more chips on the table - doesn’t necessarily follow that they’re in it till the end.
Question: Isn’t it possible to prevent mining in the Straits of Hormuz in the first place? Is mining something that can be easily and quickly performed without detection?
Nothing will be done by this admin until after the election. If this guy gets re-elected, then Israel best watch it’s back instead of relying on the admins protection.
and deploy its fleet of small electronic submarines.
Are they digital or analogue?
Aren’t large ship in a small pond like ducks?
The US Navy is being pre-positioned to shoot down IDF planes in order to protect Obama’s mooselimb brothers from further “capitalist imperalist aggression for oil”. <./alinsky sarcasm>
Oh - wait, this is the same guy who used US Military might to promote and support a revolution in Libya by radical Islamists (Muslim Brotherhood), who backed the Muslim Brotherhood in overthrowing a West-friendly government in Egypt, and who has fostered further unrest throughout the region...
I am surprised. The Navy never announces what it is doing.
My son was in the Navy and I never knew where he was.
No they’re not!
Senator Dan wouldn’t let them have what they “need”.
Mining an international waterway is of course an act of war. If we had a non Muslim president he would mention that. But we don’t and he won’t. Wonder what the Rules of Engagement will be? “Don’t shoot unless they kill you first”, just like Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Obama&Cronies are inhibiting the production of oil & cheap energy in the USA. It seems as though Obama&Cronies are on the payroll of the MiddleEastOILarchies.
The OILarchies have figured out they only need to ‘pay off’ crooked politicians in the USA to stop USA oil production & get Americans to die to protect OILarchy oil in the middle-east.
The USA needs to support Israel to prevent its destruction by the OILarchies. >Hatred for Israel is encouraged by the Muslim leaders as a distraction from their own failed policies towards their own people.
It’s time to get ready for a long depression. Obama&Cronies+priorLeaders have destroyed the USA economy on purpose; we are going broke. Historically the ‘RulingClasses’ have used War, bankrupcies & inflation to >literally keep their heads on their shoulders.
Put an admiral on every ship.
