US leaves one aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf

For the first time since December 2010, in the Persian Gulf area for two months there will be only one American aircraft carrier, and not two, as usual. This was reported by representatives of the US Navy.

This is due to the technical problems that have arisen on the Nimitz nuclear aircraft carrier, which in January next year was to change the aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower, ITAR-TASS reports.

Now the rotation is postponed until the summer. By this time, problems with the Nimitz propulsion system assigned to the Naval Forces base in Bremerton, WA, are expected to be resolved.

It was decided in December to return the “Dwight Eisenhower” to the home station in Norfolk (Virginia), to replace on its deck the cover of the runway and send back to the Persian Gulf zone in February for a period of four months.

In December and January, only one American aircraft carrier, the John Stennis, will remain in the area, although accompanied by other ships.

Announcing their decision, approved by Defense Minister Leon Panetta, the representatives of the Navy made a reservation that it had nothing to do with the latest events in the zone of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict or with other emergency situations.

While maintaining the impressive presence of its carrier groups in the Persian Gulf, the United States is also seeking to put additional pressure on Iran.

      It’s far from a fact, there are enough forces without aircraft carriers. Yes, and then the amers have been using other people's hands lately.

        Apparently not enough. Otherwise, they would have climbed long ago. The recent successes of the Iranian military industry, even if partly controversial, have put America before a choice: a big war, big losses without a guarantee of unequivocal success, or jumping around the fence with shouts — we’ll fill your face — and corresponding expenses, but less than for a war. America, in fact, happening, chose the second. But it seems that even this is becoming overhead. The crisis, you know. Well, you can always come up with an excuse.

          While Syria will not come up, they will not climb. A war on two fronts will be very expensive for Amers.

      It is possible that the amers simply once again decided to show Israel that they were not going to get involved in his adventures if he suddenly decided to attack Iran and would wait for their support.

      Rather, the opposite. Most of the strikes will be from ground bases all the same, so the departure of one aircraft carrier does not really change anything. Only reassures the Syrian-Iranians.

        Yes, most likely, they themselves have no idea how to proceed. Failed to take Iran. Walking around Syria is also not a fountain. They make a good face with a bad game.

      It also seems to me (rather I want it), the United States is thoughtful, what's next
      do? They begin to feel like a cow on ice. The situation does not follow the script. Business with Syria is dragging on. Israel is stupid. China began to stir (island claims to the allies). So, it's not the right time to get into Iran now. The conclusion of "Nimitz" allegedly in repairs, delaying the time for making cardinal decisions and a hidden refusal to Israel, support for the attack on Iran, which he so impatiently dreams of.

        I would be in the place of China, if the United States climbed into Iran, would have seized Taiwan, although according to the latest meetings there are already authorities under Chinese control, and there may soon be a referendum on reunification.

    What overstrain? The aircraft carrier was launched on 13.05.1972/XNUMX/XNUMX, it breaks down in any equipment, the more painful it is not so young + the ship is almost always in the ocean and not in the port. Or do you think that the American should not break?

    Yes, the figs are there, but if they had something serious, they could have fixed the problems in Europe.
    They just realized that the Libyan scenario will not work, so there’s no reason to keep such a group there.
    And repairs and breakdowns are excuses that would not lose face. In general, they will now be harassed by terrorism. Well, not what, if Bashar does not merge, then Syria will stand. True, I think Assad will now begin the hunt - hold on.
    Iran can breathe the same campaign ... Well, so far in any case.

    Well, at least some good news from there ... good

    One!!!!! He is only ONE. For the AUG itself keep silent. There are all possibilities to send it to the fathers. By what means - it does not matter. The main thing is to send there. And there in that bay there is a forty mine for example the third year ........ For example ......... Business then.

      you did not read the title further? "In December and January, only one US aircraft carrier, John Stennis, will remain in the area, albeit accompanied by other ships." AUG is an aircraft carrier accompanied by various ships

          It’s better not to run into AUG, but to make sure that you see a news report on how a carrier of a potential enemy is being tinned for lack of money.
          I understand that this is not to be seen in the next decade, nevertheless, to fight is also not a thing) ..

      According to Soviet manuals, for guaranteed destruction of the AOG, it was considered necessary to apply 70-100 anti-ship missiles (Granite, Volcano) from all types of carriers (surface ships, submarines and aircraft) in one stroke. The challenge, however.

    Just do not forget that the carrier strike groups (AUG) include, in addition to the aircraft carrier, 8-10 guard ships (1-2 cruisers, up to three destroyers, as many frigates, 1-2 nuclear submarines). The structure of aircraft carrier strike formations (AUS) includes 2-3 aircraft carriers, up to 25-30 guard ships carrying out their anti-submarine, anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense.
    So you can't get off with a pair of Granites (with OGCH).

    I still don’t think they’ll get into Syria .... weaken, yes. What they’re doing now. But Iran ... ohhh ... that's another matter. This is their stumbling block. If Syria wins the war, it will surrender right away. unsupported .... all allies will have enough problems. Iran is the goal! The main thing is when? Social tension is growing in America now. It needs to be given a way out, but Obama could not even imagine in a nightmare what will happen after the attack ...
