2…………> In Harms Way: USS Harry Truman
NORFOLK (NNS) — The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group departed Naval Station Norfolk, April 11, for a regularly scheduled deployment.
The strike group, including the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1, USS Normandy, several destroyers of Destroyer Squadron 28 and German frigate FGS Hessen, is scheduled to conduct operations in the U.S. Navy’s 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.
The deployment is part of an ongoing rotation of U.S. forces supporting maritime security operations in international waters around the globe. Additionally, units will work alongside allied and partner maritime forces, focusing on theater security cooperation efforts, which help to further regional stability.
USS Harry S. Truman, named in honor of the 33rd U.S. President, was commissioned on July 25th, 1998 as the 8th Nimitz-Class aircraft carrier. This deployment marks the seventh time Truman has been called upon to serve forward; the ship completed its most recent deployment to U.S. 6th and 5th Fleet areas of operation in July 2016.
3…………> Why East Ghouta: A Crossroad Of Wills?
Over 70 years after the end of WW2, Syria’s Eastern town of Ghouta has been shelled, bombed, attacked in ground assaults and it has now been allegedly hit by chemical weapons in a carnage that has left it looking as the “scorched earth” city of Stalingrad, a city that handed the biggest defeat to Hitler and marked the end of Nazi Germany.
Are the rubble covered, blood-soaked streets of Ghouta about to deliver a similar blow to the criminal consortium of the “New World’s Disorder” “hit men” and “kidney busters”, that have ganged up to beat up, bomb and kill anybody who have had the courage to stand up to the iron will of the World Central Banks?
So who are the so-called Eastern Ghouta rebels’, and why have they chosen it as their major stronghold within striking distance of the capital?
It is no secret that on many occasions UN, US, EU & Co offered a peace corridor to “board certified” terrorists like the Al Nusra Brigade punks, and their “la gumbas”, “the throat slashers” of IS.
Is President Trump aware that the “Deep State” parallel government is still continuing Obama’s crimes in Syria?
Pray that he does.
4…………> Blink, Blink: Trump
As President Trump’s taunted Russia at the beginning of the week to “get ready for his nice, new, smart missiles” to be fired Syria, and the Islamic May’sdom of UK Britain begun moving submarines within missile range of the coast of the war-ravaged country, it became evident that the White House has not set down any timetable for a military strike, and that all options remain on the table, as evidenced by the tweet below:
Donald J. Trump
“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it.”
But what are Mr. Trump’s options, except the usual “blitzkrieg” symbolic air strike like the 60 US Tomahawk missiles targeted the Shayrat airbase where the Assads warplanes that dropped the chemical weapons in the attack of Khan Sheikhoun that killed 90 people?
It was the first direct US assault against the Syrian regime and destroyed an airstrip, aircraft and fuelling stations. For a brief time there was speculation the US might enter the war directly, but since then Mr. Trump, who himself is involved in a self-inflicted war with his own Department of Justice that just a few days ago sent the FBI to his lawyer apartment in search of evidence of “whore chronicles”, will have no attention span to worry about a dirtbag like Assad, and instead plan his attack on his worst enemy, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
Translation? We are witnessing a D.C. charade that is starting to look very much like the unforgettable years of the incompetent reign of our dearly beloved 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama.
5…………> No Evidence Of CW: Mattis
“There have been a number of these attacks. In many cases, you know we don’t have troops, we’re not engaged on the ground there, so I cannot tell you that we had evidence, even though we had a lot of media and social media indicators that either chlorine or sarin were used,” DOD Chief General Mattis told speaking to members of the House Armed Services Committee, as US military is still “assessing the intelligence” on the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma, and that President Trump has yet to decide whether to launch strikes against the Middle Eastern country.
The DOD secretary said he did believe that a chemical attack took place, but that the US was still “looking for the actual evidence.”
