FoxNews: US AUG Passing through the Strait of Hormuz is ready to start hostilities if necessary

28

The US Navy reports on the activities of an aircraft carrier strike group (AUG) off the coast of Iran, which is "ready to demonstrate the power and determination of the United States."


The lead ship of the US strike group is the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier. The group also includes two missile frigates and a destroyer. It is reported that American warships have passed the Strait of Hormuz.

From a statement by a spokesman for the United States Navy:

We have sent a massive strike team to a strategically important area, which demonstrates solidarity in our readiness to address issues of freedom of navigation and support from partners.

FoxNews stated that US ships "are ready to start hostilities if necessary." It is noted that the crews are "ready for Iranian provocations."

A very peculiar presentation of the material: US warships with aviation and missile weapons approached the maritime borders of Iran, and against this background follows a statement of readiness for "Iranian provocations." In the United States, it is customary to believe that their own actions are not a provocation.



From a message from the US Navy aircraft carrier Nimitz:

While in the Arabian Gulf, we will work and train with regional and coalition partners, and provide naval aviation support for Operation Inherent Resolve.

    Nothing surprising: nothing raises the rating of American presidents before an election like a small victorious war or just saber-rattling "to protect American interests" somewhere far, far from the United States. Trump is no exception to the rule.

      There will be no small victorious war with Iran. Wrong "client" and in the wrong place.
      Trump is no exception to the rule.

      So far, so far, an exception. Although in our time nothing can be ruled out. hi

    US ships "ready to start hostilities if necessary"
    Well, FoxNews certainly knows better when to start hostilities, they themselves sit in television studios and editorial offices. Spanking fakes is not sitting in a trench. Only, something tells that the Americans are afraid. If there was 100% confidence in their impunity (loss of l / s, aircraft, ships), then they would have started long ago, because they have long given a damn about the rest in the form of public opinion.

      Once about the monsters. Operators from Hollywood on board Nimitz? If on board, we start filming the blockbuster: Transformers. The Massacre in the Persian Gulf. It may turn out to be the most expensive and at the same time grossing series. Spielberg with his Titanic will let a mean male tear. Oscar is guaranteed. hi drinks

      Having shifted the ratio of power and modernity of weapons to the moral and ethical scales, we can say that an adult "uncle" decided to show himself to everyone - by measuring himself with a "pioneer" with a pipette. And the "pioneer" turned out to be overgrown and was not particularly embarrassed.

    As always, continuous victorious reports from mattress covers. I think Iran has something to answer in the event of a conflict (despite all the prohibitions), the flight distance to the group is minimal.

      They didn’t even come close to the ironed-out Iraq. Therefore, the AUG itself in the region is a "defile behind the scenes", without massive transfers to land airfields, only a hysterical missile strike of the Kyrgyz Republic very strongly from afar and with PR hits on several targets can happen.

    I wonder how the commander of an aircraft carrier feels when he is informed about the irradiation of a radar ship in the interests of coastal defense missile systems?

    FoxNews stated that US ships "are ready to start hostilities if necessary." It is noted that the crews are "ready for Iranian provocations."

    Something says that the Iranians "will definitely decide to attack" the AUG, since the United States needs it so much.

    Before the elections, the death of one sailor in the Persian Gulf could cost Trump the presidency. Nothing will happen! According to the Saudis, someone shot himself six months ago without consequences! drinks

    As soon as several vessels are sunk by Iran, they will immediately do as in Somalia, quickly hit the road home and whine to the whole world. Then in Somalia killed more than 200 special forces and rangers, Congress immediately banned the president from military action and demanded the return of troops home. Better to soak the largest pot.

    "FoxNews: Having passed through the Strait of Hormuz, the US AUG is ready to start hostilities if necessary" - is it not normal for the military to be ready for combat in combat service? Or does the striped ones have a readiness - a fickle state - depends on the mood and the full moon?

    FoxNews announced that US ships "are ready to start hostilities if necessary."

    The question is how much oil and LNG will cost if necessary ...

    Among the topics related to Iran, there was news about the failure of the United States to extend the embargo on arms supplies to Iran. Even France, Britain and the FRG did not support the United States.
    The US withdrew from the Iranian Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on May 8, 2018 and is no longer considered a party to the "deal." In this regard, any decisions of Washington have no legal force, "the ministers of the European troika noted.

    ... "if necessary". She's ready". If the Russian Federation does not withdraw from the nuclear test ban treaty, then it is very likely that a blow to Iran will be delivered in the coming days.
