    Jesus - you're bitching about guns on destroyers?

    Look , we get the fact that everything done by any military unit is a chance for you to engage in your inanane babble about Obama. You appear to be a one-trick pony. Whining about one destroyer being moved from one area of operations is about par for the course for you.

    He's calling you Admiral while simultaneously questioning a decision that was probably made at the highest levels of the navy.

    The Nimitz CSG is still in the 5th Fleet AOR. The Nimitz CSG is in the Red Sea not the 6th Fleet AOR which is in the Mediterranean Sea. Syria is no where near the Red Sea.

    Why hasn't the Nimitz CSG transit the Suez Canal ? I think we know why, Egypt is a basket case and would you have an American carrier transiting the Suez Canal today ?

    Here's a question Redress and I bet you will agree. Why do we tell our enemies, possible foes, etc. where all of our carriers are today. Why not go back when the Russians/Soviets, China, etc. had to spend tens of billions of dollars trying to locate out carriers ? I'm sure you remember those days.

    Why do we tell Syria and the Russians how many ships we have offshore of Syria and how many Tomahawk cruise missiles are aboard these ships ?

    Re: 1/5 th of the USN surface warships depart the Mediterranean Sea.

    Looks like the Apacherat has gone and posted another fallacious headline for a thread attacking the President.

    I wonder why he would say 1/5 th of the USN surface warships depart the Mediterranean Sea when in reality it was only one ship (1/5th of one destroyer group). There are other USN warships in the Med, just not as close to the Syrian coast.

    Of course he can ignore the Nimitz carrier strike group because it's in the Red Sea and not the Mediterranean so it obviously doesn't count.


    Why does the US tell people where there aircraft carriers are located? Ever heard of satellites? Carrier groups can't hide no more.

    All right Admiral Wiggen, why was the USS Mahan ordered to return back to Norfolk ?

    BTW: I wasn't bitching about guns on destroyers but I could.

    As you can see, Syria is right near the Red Sea. Please stop making yourself look silly.

    Satellites cost money. Satellites can only cover a fraction of the world's oceans. That's why the Soviets/ Russians, Chinese spent billions on satellites to keep track of where our ships were. Lets keep them spending billions. We're still spending tens of billions on spy satellites.

    Do you know why U-2's are still flying today ?

    Actually you are so painfully wrong it is hilarious. Satellites can track carrier groups with ease. Further, active emissions make carrier groups painfully easy to locate for any one who wants to.
