US Navy sends nuclear submarine and two URO cruisers to Persian Gulf

The United States sent two cruisers and a nuclear submarine to the Persian Gulf. As reported by the press service of the 5th fleet US Navy, nuclear submarines Georgia and missile cruisers Port Royal and Philippine Sea entered the Gulf.


According to the 5th Fleet, based in Bahrain, the dispatch of the submarine Georgia to the Persian Gulf, accompanied by the URO cruisers Port Royal and the Philippine Sea, demonstrates the fleet's ability to operate wherever international law allows, as well as the US commitment to regional partners and maritime security.

The American submarine carrying 5 Tomahawk cruise missiles has been upgraded to accommodate up to 154 Special Operations Force fighters, according to data provided by the US Navy's 66th Fleet. Whether there are special forces on board, the report does not say.

There is also no information on how long the nuclear submarine Georgia and the cruisers Port Royal and Philippine Sea will be in the Persian Gulf.

Meanwhile, it became known that on the eve of the cruiser USS Port Royal, within the framework of Saudi Arabia's CTF-150 "Maritime Security" operation in the international waters of the Arabian Sea, intercepted a bulk drug cargo "over 1100 pounds."


The report says that the ship's crew eventually seized: 150 pounds (45 kg) of hashish, 400 pounds (181 kg) of methamphetamine and 600 pounds (272 kg) of heroin. It was not reported from whom the illegal cargo was seized.

                  You do not quite understand what you are talking about and what you want. First, Iran has quite a bit of air force. Air defense and missile defense will be neutralized by very numerous strikes, and, if necessary, by tactical nuclear charges. After that, the blow will be dealt to the industrial and facilities of Iran's nuclear program. In addition, in response, Iran will use its already manufactured, albeit few, nuclear charges. Some of which, by the way, are already near the border of Israel, and another part is possible not far from some US territories. Now look at the map. How far from us is a probable TVD, with the use of even tactical nuclear charges?

                    As for nuclear weapons, you are right to have noticed, I would not be surprised if the USA used them. The fact is that the military operations of the Americans have always been distinguished by numerous war crimes. Carpet bombing of cities, burning villages with napalm, flooding everything with defoliants and causing an ecological catastrophe for them is a nice thing. I say the parallels with Vietnam are striking ...

                    In addition, in response, Iran will use its already manufactured, albeit few nuclear charges. Some of which, by the way, are already near the border of Israel, and another part is possibly not far from some territories of the United States. Now look at the map.

                    Iran does not have any nuclear charges, otherwise, given the threat looming over them, the Persians would have demonstrated and tested it long ago. The US will not buy the world community for this bullshit. Your bit card! negative

                      Iran had its first charge ready in early spring this year. I don’t know how many of them now. I think quite a bit. Notice not warheads, not bombs, just low power charges. How the charge works is unknown, what is used, plutonium, uranium, is also not clear. But now to inform the whole world that they are like death for Iran. Think for yourself why. Where is Iran and where is the United States. Israel has a powerful pro. And Iran does not have reliable delivery systems yet. So it turns out that Israel received information about the charges understood the danger and informed the United States. And then how it goes. If Iran announced it, it would be immediately defeated by all its allies. And so while everything hung in the balance.

        People surprise me. On November 28, to the notes on the message of strengthening Iran's containment and the assassination of a scientist, I provided several comments on the advancing forces
        US and Israel with the same nuclear weapons on board. On the development of an earlier plan for an attack on Iran and Iranian retaliatory measures. In general, a lot of things, and then I got cons and complete distrust on my calculations. Now these forces have approached and something else is expected, and I am interested in the reaction.

As for the device, the apparatus, then of course for the special operations forces it is used, the same forces and carry out various actions, including the installation or disposal of mines. And besides, there is a remote unmanned module for conducting reconnaissance raids in enemy waters and, if necessary, destroying minefields in various ways, including by detonating the module itself next to the object

    Iran had its first charge ready in early spring this year.

    And what did they make it out of? Surely 50/50 sand and camel shit? No need to invent. What Iran was able to produce is uranium with an enrichment of about 5%, albeit in greater quantities than they could have under the contract. It took Iran about 10 years to accumulate uranium of 20% enrichment in about 1/2 of what is needed to make the charge. Of the 25 centrifuges Iran has in 2016, under the agreement, only slightly more than 5000 remained. Even to increase the number of centrifuges to the number that they did not have enough. It takes time for uranium to go through the entire enrichment cycle: 0,75: - 3,5% - 5% - 20% - and a few more stages before they get uranium at 90% (weapon) frequency. And for you they have gained as much in a year as they could not have worked in 10 years ...

    It is not known how the charge works, what is used, plutonium, uranium, is also not clear.

    Aircraft carriers MAY carry atomic bombs. But as long as there is no military action, an agreement is in force to remove nuclear weapons from ships. On an Israeli boat - quite possible. But in any case, the United States and Israel will not immediately "hammer" with nuclear charges. None of them wants to be the initiator. And there is no need to use nuclear weapons when you can use conventional

He said that Tomahawk-type cruise missile charges had been removed and disposed of, and that the warheads of depth charges, missile warheads, torpedo launchers and atomic shells were removed and disposed of. Bombs, if necessary = will be delivered. And about the process of destruction - sorry, but I still trust our inspectors, you - most likely not

    Quote: Connor Macleod
    Well, with the air defense and the air force, Russia and China will help - we will train and arm.

    As always "for free"? Do they have something to pay with the inflation that they have? And the time for training? Or let's say to the Americans: "Guys, wait, don't start a war until we supply Iran with aviation and air defense systems?"
