The Los Angeles-class American nuclear submarine Newport News, which, according to the Pentagon’s statement, entered Gibraltar for “planned technical reasons”, left the port and headed for the Eastern Mediterranean, according to marine monitoring resources.


Technical visit? Submarine USS Newport News went to Syria


According to the resources, the USS Newport News nuclear submarine, after staying at the port of Gibraltar for four days, left the port, rounded Cape Europe at the southern tip of Gibraltar and headed east. Earlier in the Pentagon, they denied the possibility of sending this submarine to the Mediterranean Sea in preparation for striking Syrian territory. The submarine is armed with 12-th Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of 1,6 thousandths.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, there are already two American nuclear submarines in the Mediterranean, and two US Navy destroyers, Karni and Ross, are located in the eastern Mediterranean. Currently, the American destroyer Winston Churchill is also going there. In total at the moment, around the Tomahawk 120 missiles are concentrated on several carriers in the Mediterranean. Earlier, the American destroyer "The Sullivans" with cruise missiles arrived in the Persian Gulf, and the strategic bomber B-1В, armed with 24 air-to-surface cruise missiles, was redeployed to Qatar.

      Mattresses intensify tension.
      Previously, the Pentagon denied the possibility of sending this submarine to the Mediterranean Sea in preparation for attacking Syrian territory.

      Not an argument: the Pentagon will say that they were misunderstood (as has already happened).

    Such slowness and imposingness in the pulling together of forces suggests a demonstration and "psychic attack", but in reality it shows that the final decision on the strike by the Americans has not yet been made. It will take longer to continue our teachings in the eastern Mediterranean.

      I agree! Apparently the Yankees decided to exhaust us economically. The moose in the NP is a clear demonstration and psychological pressure on the opponent! Now our PLO specialists will consider the outfit of forces to "localize" this artist. And with us with "pickle" (by PLO forces in the area), as in the fairy tale about Fedot the archer: "cucumber and mousse - that's all pickle!" And you don't fly a lot with aviation - you can fly into the chimney with only kerosene!

      Continuing our teachings in the eastern Mediterranean will take longer.
      And this statement is a confirmation of my words about the economic component of our confrontation with the Amami in Mediterranean. One day of "training" - minus a school for 800 places in some city of Russia ... or maybe a perinatal center or a multidisciplinary hospital in some thread "Uryupinsk" ...
      Yes, even sanctions, villains, crush ... Not comme il faut at all!
      In short, the General Staff of the Navy and the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces will obviously be added.

        All our response actions are right in the Bible: hit on the left cheek, substituted the right! Until we answer, they will spread rot. And time acts against us. Sanctions pressure despite management statements

          Michael, let me disagree with you.
          What does it mean to answer? There are at least 3 possible answers: political-diplomatic, economic, military. Let's exclude the latter right away. (No "companionship" and comments!) The other two are being worked on. So, I personally do not see the plot here for the new Sermon on the Mount.

          Of course they press! Who is against? BUT !!! There is an expression: "Everything that does not kill makes us stronger!" This is about us.
          In addition, at the very least, the process of "import substitution" is still going on. The country is getting stronger. Don't believe me? - Look at the site "Made by us".
          Somehow, however.

      Yes, she ... this is the usual routine for the United States ... promoting democratic values ​​around the world with the help of cruise missiles is simply a necessary procedure before the US Congress.
      Well, what can you do about it what this is the mentality of washington cowboys ... I think our specialists in the fight against air targets will check their military equipment once again ... we are waiting.

        Alex, hi
        So then it is, but it is very expensive for us. Amy, what are they, they are using the PU to dispose of the Axes that have served the specified shelf life. And we have a headache: to protect the Syrians from attacks by the IOS. That is the difference in this situation. Not feng shui all this!
        But.
