Carrier Strike Group Rushes To Persian Gulf


WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis is being rushed to the Persian Gulf as tensions between Israel and Iran edge closer to the boiling point.

The Nimitz class carrier, with an air wing of about 90 aircraft, sets sail Monday on an eight-month deployment to the region -- four months ahead of schedule.

In the gulf it will join the USS Enterprise Strike Group, giving the United States a powerful deterrent to any Iranian attack on commercial oil tankers in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz or a counterpunch to Iranian military action against U.S. military facilities in the region or those of its allies.

I half suspect the ships are to protect Iran from Israel

You beat me to it, CL.

You have to ask, what is the mission of the carriers? To stop Iran? Or to stop Israel?

Not sure if Obama is looking out for Iranian or Israeli interests, only thing we can say for certain is it's not American interests.

What'll happen if Obama orders our pilots to shoot Israelli jets out of the sky?

Must be election season and someone's looking for a boost in the polls.
