I don’t like to promote fear porn… Okay, so maybe I do that sometimes. Regardless, this is something important that we should be keeping our eyes on, especially with the Bomber’s recent scorched earth shenanigans..
From the article on Superstation 95: Obama Setting-Us-Up for Attack Upon U.S.A. – ALL AIRCRAFT CARRIERS NOW IN PORT – NONE AT SEA, ANYWHERE
It appears the U.S. has been set-up by our own government to be attacked. All 10 U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers are “in-port” for the next week! NO CARRIER is operating anywhere in the world! We’re sitting ducks.
For the next week, not only will there be no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier in the Middle East, but there will be no American aircraft carriers deployed at sea anywhere else in the world, despite a host of worldwide threats facing the United States.
The carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and her strike group returned to Norfolk, Va., Friday following a seven-month deployment. The Ike launched hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria from both the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Two destroyers in the Ike’s strike group also saw combat. The USS Nitze and USS Mason were attacked in the Red Sea when Iranian backed Houthi forces in Yemen launched cruise missiles, which were intercepted by the Mason. A retaliatory strike by the Nitze destroyed the radar installations in Yemen in October.
The Eisenhower’s replacement carrier, the USS George H.W. Bush, was delayed by more than six months in the shipyards and will not be able to replace the Ike until early next year, according to Navy officials.
While there is no U.S. aircraft carrier in the Middle East right now, there is a large deck U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship with thousands of Marines on board as well as helicopters and some jets to respond to a crisis, according to officials.
In the meantime, the Navy tells SuperStation95 the U.S. military has other jets available to make up for the aircraft carrier gap in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. The Navy can also “surge” a carrier now in port to deploy if necessary. But the absence of a deployed U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, long seen as a symbol of American power projection, is noteworthy. It is believed to be the first time since World War II that at least one U.S. aircraft carrier has not been deployed.
