    No U.S. Carriers at Sea!

    No US carrier at sea leaves gap in Middle East | Fox News

    The U.S. projects its strength throughout the world through its carrier groups. There's always a carrier group somewhere near any area where trouble could start. Not right now, though. At a time when Obama is irritating so many...

    Thankfully, the boomers are out there. I assume they are.

    I am not one that thinks the US always needs to be the policeman of the world. However I do not think you need to worry .

    What capability do we need in the area - more than one way to get a mission done- we have aircraft from land bases in the area. The fleet that remains has attack helicopters and do you know where are the Italian carriers and the French carrier. I do not know but would not be surprised that they are near by and would provide air cover should the fleet be attacked.

    I know Italian and other NATO allied planes have flown into combat off of US carriers in the past.

    Especially if they are all lined up at the docks in Norfolk.
    Several years ago the local Congressmen tried to get the Navy to bring at LEAST one carrier to Jacksonville so the fleet would not be all in one place. It was shot down by Obama's lackeys in the Pentagon.
    Evidently nothing was learned on Dec 7, 1941.

    Perhaps we are being setup for a strike, O'thugger's real legacy?

    A half breed Vidcun Quisling????

    There are 14 SSBM's in commission, there was a lot of bitching that six were taken off patrol and put up in 2015 at Norfolk.

    The primary bitch was all six were docked side by side, 12/7/41???

    I have been to Portsmouth and Groton at least a hundred times, only a few times did I ever see one tied up,

    other than the Nautilus.

    Those boats were ordered to stand down by O'thigger, same here???

    In port all they are is a juicy target unable to defend themselves.

    RPD,

    I was typing while you posted.

    It would really worry me if the carriers and the missile boats were all together there, god what a target.

    I don't trust that bastard.

    That's what disturbs me.
    A U.S. carrier group is some serious power. None are at sea? Now, you tell me half the SSBMs are docked.
    It seems to me this is more than just a strategic error.

    SOCOM, I'm not a Navy guy, but aren't SSBM ballistic missile submarines? AKA "Boomers"?
    There are only two ports for these, Bremerton, Washington, and Kings Bay, Georgia.
    Our place is about 50 air miles from Kings Bay.
    The base is a big employer in the region and is in the news a lot.

    must be a date back in the 1930s since "all" the carriers in the US Navy were ported at the same time - probably 2-3 carriers back then .... what caused this more than anything has been the cut in military funds and it's constant deployment - the other branches aren't in any better shape ....

    no Obammy nefarious plot - he'd go after the navy personnel and not the hardware - put a bootlicker captain in command and a CIA black ops team on board for enforcement - kill anyone that got in his way ....
