34
Atomic aircraft carrier "George Bush" US Navy left the Norfolk military base in Northern Virginia, reports InoTV Post British newspaper Daily Star.




As the newspaper notes, “a ship 1092 feet in length (333 m) reached the Atlantic Ocean just a week after the Russian reconnaissance ship Viktor Leonov was discovered near the Norfolk military base - the Russian ship approached the US military base on the US East Coast 24 nautical miles ".

Previously, a P-8A Poseidon patrol aircraft was sent to track the Viktor Leonov.

The newspaper reminds that "over the past few months, the Russian ship has been repeatedly seen in different parts of the United States, including Florida, Georgia, Virginia and New London in Connecticut, and last year the ship was found near the Kings Bay military base in Florida."

According to the US military, the ship performs a reconnaissance mission lasting from 4 to 6 months.

Last February, Donald Trump also expressed concern about the activities of Viktor Leonov. According to him, many believe that "the best thing to do is to fire a ship."

"Everyone will say:" Oh, how great! ". But this is not great, ”the president wrote on the social network.

      Carriers do not chase the enemy’s ships, but we’ll see where the Yankees sent their vessels.

    And about the fact that these "many" do not think about the "spring", Trump for some reason kept silent ...

        1. My friend, you are the same couch warrior as those who, in your words, raise them ...
        2. When approaching our borders, mattress technology I can only say that cruisers are not sent to the escort. It is not necessary, but cheap show-offs are useless ...
        3. Concerning likes, it’s also understandable - that means those who receive these likes in the opinion of a certain part of our colleagues deserve these likes or, on the contrary, do not deserve them.
        Are you on the site for the likes?

          Oh how hooked you are! So you didn’t even bother to see which phrase from the message I commented on (although I quoted). I answered calls from US bloggers to shoot our ship, and not that an aircraft carrier was sent to it. Well, if you breasted stood up for the “army” screaming here and put likes on it, then here you are that same couch strategist.

        I think that this is precisely the result of the suggestion of the greatest nation. Poking around in the nose, the mattresses suddenly believed that they could decide the "fate of the world" without really controlling the words and deeds.
        Most likely, this is the first point of your assumption hi

    If they were chasing aircraft carriers after each of our steamboats, we would have ruined them with our missile boats in a year. But, I think he will trample in the region of Syria and BV, to show the Turks his degree of concern. This is the style of the USA - one aircraft carrier off your shores - everything is fine, "live while you are happy, you are your son of a bitch!" Two aircraft carriers - it is already unhappy with you, and you - "must leave"! Three aircraft carriers can already mean war, if you do not have nuclear weapons, and a threat if nuclear weapons exist. But it is already threatening real losses even to the non-belligerent American fleet, due to the great self-confidence and poor skills in navigating, as well as ignoring physical principles, mass inertia in particular. Four aircraft carriers in one place will already mean something extraordinary, and catastrophic in consequences, for them for sure, but maybe for all of humanity.

      According to the consequences for these four aircraft carriers as compactly located targets, if something happens all of a sudden.

    "Leonov" checked the technical condition of nuclear landmines along the entire coast? Donya, it’s better not to think about shelling him. Suddenly the button will be pressed accidentally and a wave 200 meters high will go 400

    Well ... Where are these patriotic exclamations about an American plane near the Crimea ?! It turns out our spy ships are sailing quietly just 24 miles from the American naval base. And no one panics, does not make dangerous maneuvers, and the aircraft carrier came out completely girlfriend reason.
    Aircraft carrier never makes sail alone. He leads the aircraft carrier group. Which includes more than a dozen combat and auxiliary vessels.
    And to accompany our spy ship, and even stuffed with outdated electronics, one destroyer is enough.
    So, gentlemen, patriots, do not think of yourself as strategists; Americans know how to count money.
