Big ‘E’ on her last cruise

US Navy deploys 2nd aircraft carrier to Gulf

The U.S. Navy said Monday it has deployed a second aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf region amid rising tensions with Iran over its nuclear program.

The deployment of the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise along the Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group marks only the fourth time in the past decade that the Navy has had two aircraft carriers operating at the same time in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea, said Cmdr. Amy Derrick-Frost of the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet.

Murdoc’s not sure if this is just an overlap while the Enterprise replaces the Lincoln, or if they will really both remain deployed there.

  1. Israel is going to blast the Iranian nuclear plants, whether the Obummer corporation likes it or not. And Obummer knows it.

    So, as a precaution the 2nd carrier will cruise around to insure the Iranians don’t get too antsy when they retalliate against Israel.

      Why is their retaliation any concern of ours? I don’t wish to go trolling for another war. If Israel wishes to attack, fine. Let them deal with the consequences. The US needs another BS war about as much as we need more third world immigrants.

  2. Heard recently the Ruskis are massing troops on the Iranian border via Georgia.

    They ain’t going there to get a sun tan!
