The article notes that the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT might be on the way from the Atlantic to the eastern Med and that the USS CARL VINSON is on the way to the Persian Gulf. The USS HARRY TRUMAN is already in the Gulf. There haven’t been three carriers in the region at the same time in over a year.
But I’m not so sure about the ROOSEVELT. According to Global Security, the last entry is Flight Deck certifications beginning on 12 January. Now, that’s been over two months, so I guess anything’s possible.
But while looking for more info I came across this article (which is identical to the Regime Change Iran posting but over a week older) that includes
Update: As submitted by Betty J: “My son serves on the USS Theodore Roosevelt, and I know for a fact he is at home. Just thought I’d pass that along. I also read a similar article at Indiadaily.com – somebody didn’t verify their info. “
So, as much as I think some sabers are going to be rattled pretty loudly in Syria’s direction over the next few months, I don’t think the carriers are converging on the Middle East as we speak.
Of course, maybe that’s what they want us to think.
