WSJ: “Harry Truman” transfer to the Mediterranean Sea was another signal to Russia

95
The relocation of the aircraft carrier "Harry Truman" to the Mediterranean Sea is intended to demonstrate to Moscow the flexibility of the US Navy, reports RIA News message "Wall Street Journal".




The transfer of the ship from the Persian Gulf is “a signal to Moscow and a demonstration of the flexibility and coverage of the naval forces,” a military source told the newspaper.

According to him, “the aircraft carrier is located in the zone of responsibility of the European command, and strikes the central zone of responsibility (at targets in Iraq and Syria)”.

“This provides some necessary presence in the Mediterranean to ... hold back the Russians ... The unpredictability of what we did with Truman seems to make them think twice,” said the source.

Admiral Bret Batchelder said earlier that “the movement of a ship from the Persian Gulf through the Suez Canal is intended to demonstrate to the NATO allies the US commitment to maintaining the balance of naval forces in the Mediterranean.”

“This is a demonstration of opportunities. That's for sure ... No doubt there are guys who are watching this, and this is just a visual representation of what we can do, ”added Batchelder.

"Harry Truman" is located in the Mediterranean for strikes at IG facilities. In June, the aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower was to join him. Then "Truman" after 8-mi months of combat watch will go to the United States.

      Don't understand what they can? Carrier through Suez or what? So every day, fifty ships pass through this channel and do not make this achievement.

        The signal to the Russians is to always keep the gunpowder dry, the armed forces are on full alert, to develop science and the military-industrial complex.

          Maybe from the new psaki there will be additional explanations of what kind of signal it is. So far, it is difficult to unequivocally say what kind of signal it is, to whom and for what reason.

        Ai, well, what are you, the right word, incomprehensible. "Unpredictable"! Here is the key word! They decided with the Darkest One to compete in unpredictability. Aha! Shock and trapet. They, apparently, do not know the Russian principle: "And we do it!"

        The Mediterranean is not the Pacific Ocean. The cruiser "Moskva" in these conditions is extremely dangerous for the AUG. I will look forward to reports from the dragging Americans about the "unprofessional" rapprochement of the Black Sea flagship within the attack distance of its P-1000 anti-ship missile system with the "peaceful" American AUG laughing

      Well, the "fish of my dreams" itself came and came closer. Now a new radio frequency and sonar portrait will be removed from it. They will check the standards for the departure of aircraft and the work of deck crews, find out what such are carried "under the wing of an aircraft" carrier-based fighters.

Well, an American aircraft carrier entered the Mediterranean Sea, so what? Or didn’t they go there before? He poses no threat to Russia.

          Previously, Tu-16s with KSR-5 missiles against US aircraft carrier groups were based in Crimea. A former chief told me that he served in a regiment serving these missiles. When he got demobilized, our deputy military commissar Gyulumyan did not think of anything better than to write in the military card of the VUS "Commander of the cruise missile squad." That is, back in 1975, a person could easily command the cruise missiles themselves, being in the rank of "senior sergeant". Like this. Tremble NATO. laughing soldier
          PS As he said, 2 regiments of our Tu-22 or Tu-16 bombers with cruise missiles of this type, up to equipping them with a nuclear warhead, acted against the Nimitz aircraft carriers. The aircraft carrier was attacked by two missiles, one from the vertical, the other from the horizon. If at least one missile hit the aircraft carrier, then the combat mission was considered completed.

      The admiral ends the end of the maneuvers with a joke:
      - Well, since our sea people live well, and - SOLID, you need to go to Kronstadt and finish the maneuvers, the wife's houses are waiting. My wife ordered our cook yesterday for a dinner of Botvini with a couleby. Konstantin Nikolaevich, I invite you and my wife to have dinner with us in the evening, at 18.00.

      On it, aircraft carriers cannot enter the Black Sea.

      Did the Pentagon say this, or did you yourself analyze the signal and come to this conclusion?

    The transfer of the ship from the Persian Gulf is “a signal to Moscow and a demonstration of the flexibility and coverage of the naval forces,” a military source told the newspaper.
    And after being struck from a submarine of the Borey class, in how many minutes a flexible aircraft carrier will fall to the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. hi

    It is difficult to call an aircraft carrier a trough, but given the current realities, this is so. What they want to show by this is not entirely clear. More precisely, this is probably work for the public, and not for us.

    Do not understand at all what they boast about? Well, the aircraft carrier is in Mediterranean. So we are after them, and they have been following us for 50 years on military services. Everyone was seen, everyone was photographed, and even ours visited the "America" ​​and flew on their airplanes in due time (Apakidze T.A. and our other pilots). We quarrel, then we make up. So what? "Truman" has appeared - it's amazing! And we on the "Sovremenny" in the 85th still chased the "Eisenhower", and then the "Nimitz" chased for a month. What are the problems, I don't understand? Something in the minds of amerskih informants pereklinin that they routinely pass off as a sensation. Like the British with Stary Oskol.

    ".. make them think twice"
    Maybe it's worth considering ..
    The transfer of “Harry Truman” from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea is certainly an event in itself, but in conjunction with other facts, the picture still makes you think.
    See for yourself:
    1. Intensification of air reconnaissance along the perimeter of borders
    2. The recent development of landing in Finland, read in the conditions of the north-western borders,
    3. "Harry Truman" is connected to the strike group of the Eisenhower aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea with a parallel -
    4. NATO military exercises in Eastern Europe and Turkey
    And all this on the eve of the NATO summit in Warsaw 8 – 9 July ...
