American AUG entered the Persian Gulf for the first time in 10 months

An American carrier strike group, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68), entered the Persian Gulf for the first time in 10 months. This was reported by the press service of the 5th operational fleet US Navy.


The main task of the AUG, which, together with the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68), includes the missile cruisers USS Princeton (CG-59), USS Philippine Sea (CG-58) and the destroyer USS Sterett (DDG-104), was named participation in the operation "Unshakable determination" against the "Islamic State" (banned in Russia). The aircraft carrier's wing includes about 70 aircraft and helicopters, including 48 F / A-18 Hornet fighter-bombers.

The carrier strike force will conduct operations and joint exercises with regional and coalition partners, as well as provide aviation support for Operation Unwavering Determination

- says the message of the fleet.

It is noted that recently American AUGs did not enter the Persian Gulf due to Iranian threats, being in the neighboring Gulf of Oman and conducting all operations from there.

Relations between Iran and the United States, already not good, deteriorated sharply in June 2019 after the Iranian military shot down a US drone over the country's territory. According to the US, the drone was located over neutral territory.

    Again they rattle with weapons ... just before the elections ... are the videos needed for the election campaign? Want to start a small victorious war? It's too late, they won't be in time until November. But to bomb someone is yes

      Actually, the Persian Gulf is a trap for the AUG.
      In the event of a real war with Iran.
      Nipple system.

      I would not say unequivocally that in the relatively small Persian Gulf, the war of the American AUG with Iran will be a "small victorious war" for America. The forerunner of the Third World War - perhaps. But just taking and "bombing" Iran is unlikely. Moreover, as practice shows, if America really decides to bomb, it gathers a "coalition" - so that "I am not alone in the field." And alone - it's like with the Kims - in North Korea. They swam, their cheeks puffed up with bubbles and swam away with a feeling of winners.

        They have no time. To collect a coalition ... or rather, Trump does not. What has he got to lose? Wabank will go ... Either he will win, or - all the same ... loss is tantamount to death for him. Internal, of course, not physical.

          Well, not quite the same he is without brains - if only he would think with his spinal cord, maybe ... He WILL NOT get a "little victorious war". There will be a bloody mess, and in the United States as well. And if for this he will also be given the Nobel Peace Prize ... It's like L. Johnson for Vietnam. And the fact that for America it will not even be the second, but the next Vietnam - I'm sure.

          This is exactly what Trump does not need - this is another place on Earth, from where "plastics" with corpses will go to America. Therefore, I think they are tsykanut. They will turn their tail around, see that no one is particularly afraid of them, and, maintaining the stately posture of the hegemon, proudly retire. After all, hegemons do not run away with their tails between their legs, as from Vietnam. They "proudly retire" ... laughing

        This was until recently, but times are changing. Most likely, the main European powers will either refuse under some plausible pretext, or get off with a banal battalion of sappers for excuses. But those who will gladly support it are the "new European democracies." But from them the fighters are like a bullet from some substance. You don't need to have such allies. So, the flag of America in the hands and the drum around his neck, let him rattle his weapons as much as he wants. Nobody is afraid of her anymore. Akella is already old and gray-haired. And he perfectly understands that if next time he misses (and he misses), then he will not be a leader. So it revolves around the "game", but is not going to attack. And then Trump is declared the "president of the world", they say he has not unleashed a single war. So he would have untied, with great pleasure, but stupid.

          How many times have I missed - just not because of old age (what old age? This "Akela" is the same age as the Bolshoi Theater), but because of stupidity.

    Something not very clear sentence in the text wink
    Well, with regards to the news. Here and so. We did not expect the war. But she sailed. There will be enough power in the knee-elbow position to put any country or group of countries of the third world. We look and see at the think the last flashes of the American empire. yes

    The main task of the AUG is the participation in Operation Unshakable Determination, which is being conducted against the Islamic State.
    How Americans fight IS is well known. Therefore, the main task - we will threaten from here ... Iran.

    In November, the UN embargo on arms supplies to Iran ends. From a logical point of view, Iran needs to update its weapons by purchasing modern air defense systems, long and medium range and ball and bastion SCRCs, and the problems with the AUG will become less painful.

    It took the American AUG ten months of a strict diet and hard training to get the opportunity to smuggle its fat opa into the Persian Gulf. Let's hope that they continue to be kept on a diet, otherwise they will not crawl back. laughing
