    US Deploys Yet Another Warship To The Middle East


    Three major aircraft carriers will be stationed in troubled region

    The United States has deployed yet another warship to the Middle East, meaning that three major aircraft carriers allied with numerous guided-missile destroyer ships are now either already located or are on their way to the troubled region.


    According to Stratfor.com’s weekly naval update, a third Nimitz-class supercarrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, has now been deployed to join the U.S. fifth fleet in the Middle East.

    A KOMO news report confirms the deployment, noting that 5,000 sailors are on board “headed back to the Middle East where its fighter jets will back up U.S. troops in Afghanistan.” The mission is scheduled to last four months.

    The deployment follows last week’s news that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, in addition to guided missile destroyers USS Bunker Hill and USS Halsey, are also on their way to the Middle East to join the 5th fleet area of operations. The ships are currently almost half way across the Pacific Ocean on their route through Asian territory.

    The warships will join the USS John C. Stennis, which is already stationed just outside Pakistani and Iranian territorial waters. The USS Bataan (LHD-5) Wasp-class amphibious assault ship is also stationed in the region just south of Yemen.

    The United States now has a total of five major aircraft carriers deployed around the world, the same number of warships that were in action shortly before the invasion of Iraq in early 2003.
    With tensions running high in relation to Pakistan, Syria and Iran amidst overwhelming speculation of an imminent military campaign in the region, the deployment of three major warships to the Middle East is of extreme significance.

    However, the most pressing concern for the U.S. is the fact that Pakistan is maintaining its border blockade to Afghanistan in protest against a NATO air strike last month that killed two dozen Pakistani soldiers. The U.S. has refused to apologize for the incident.

    Although the Pentagon claims that the blockade has “no appreciable impact” on military operations in Afghanistan, it is costing the U.S. Air Force $400 dollars in fuel costs for each gallon of fuel dropped by cargo plane to supply U.S. bases in Afghanistan.

    According to Stratfor.com’s weekly naval update, whoever wrote this hasn't got a clue and should probably seek a career change.

    As of yesterday, Stratfor.com - http://web.stratfor.com/images/north...-07-11_800.jpg - has ONE carrier anywhere even close to the area and that would be CVN74 the John C. Stennis.

    The Abraham Lincoln is most likely Heading to the 5th Fleet AOP so that the Stennis can rotate home.
    The George H.W. Bush WAS in the Med. a couple weeks ago but is returning to the States (probably a good thing as it was getting kinda crowded in that area!).

    Therefore, there is ONE carrier anywhere on that entire side of the globe (unless you want to count the George Washington IN PORT in Japan)

    "Three major aircraft carriers will be stationed in troubled region" MY ASS...
