or how about our Navy rescues more Iranian fishermen from Somali pirates only this time one of the fishermen or pirates somehow sneak some sort of explosive on board (at least that's what we'd be told) and you have another USS Kohl incident. The MSM tells the sheeple it was them filthy Iranians and WW3 is kicked off.
That one "obsolete" *carrier battle group* could probably take out the entire Iranian navy and air force and have time to spare to watch a movie before dinner.
But let's not get too bothered over facts when conspiracy is so much more fun.

Operation Praying Mantis in 1988 did just that, with forces from... wait for it... the Enterprise battle group. Now, in a short term, surprise attack scenario, yes, we could take some casualties. I don't believe we should be there at all. But, given that we ARE there, a sober analysis of our prospects is in order. There was a war-game about 10 years ago where the US side was bloodied by an asymmetric antagonist that everyone has presumed to be Iran. Boghammar missile boats sunk carriers, cruisers and all kinds of support vessels. That's a possibility, I suppose. But, given the capital loss involved there, the United States would be forced, through popular opinion (unfortunately) to go knives out and go full-on kill mode against Iran. Full mobilization, invasion from two sides, a long and bloody war we'd eventually win and then lose the following peace. I don't see it getting to that point, honestly. If the Iranians attack our fleet, they will lose. I don't want them to attack it, I don't even want our fleet to be there. But, having served in our Navy and knowing the unimaginable superiority we have in that region, I honestly don't see Iran being able to mount anything more than a Gulf of Tonkin style provocation (and yeah that's where it's going).
You're going to get hammered for your post and I'm going to get hammered for my response. Don't let it discourage you from seeking and broadcasting the actual truth, instead of the comforting psychosis that the boogeyman is actually under the bed or Hannibal is actually at the gates.
I wasn't aware of there being such specific information available.
I love information... :)

Enterprise is a killing machine. It may be obsolete compared to our modern fleet of carriers (we have 11 with 3 more on the way)... But it's hardly obsolete in battle. It is superior to anything any other Navy is sailing, by a long, long shot.
Romney keeps saying our Navy is weak. That is the biggest joke I've heard yet. When is someone going to challenge this nonsense? Our Navy is 2nd to none, now or at any time in history.
They are now very easy to eliminate because of those bunker busters fireworks.
that the deck of the Enterprise would be a perfect place for all the neocon politicians to get a great view of their war.
Let's fill up the Enterprise with neocons.
It's no wonder that some think that RP supporters wear tin foil hats? It is because of crap like this. Time to get back to work making phone calls, earning money to donate to the campaign, etc. and stop watching crap like this.
All wars start this way. It wasnt until the internet that information like this reaches the masses before shtf.

I tried to link studies that exemplify the Wall Street Connection to Perpetual War, in particular, these studies blow the whistle on the connection between specific people in U.S.A. with specific people in German, financing the Nazi Party, and at the same time, financing people in Russia, including the Bolsheviks.
Also: Has anyone heard about the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty by the dictatorial regime that took over Israel?
And: If China and Russia are drawn into World War III eventually, there is evidence suggesting that those Carriers, new or old, will be sitting ducks.
you are right. It just sticks in your craw a little when it is a supposedly ally you give $3 billion a year to.
After Israeli surveillance aircraft flew over the Liberty for 8 hours practically close enough to see the sailors' rank, and even waved, and with three US flags flying, they suddenly mistook it for an Egyptian transport half the size and attacked it for four hours, including machine-gunning the lifeboats. Those tin foils can't just believe the simple truth!
right, because our government would never do anything like that.

...another false flag brewing?
i believe so!
its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
short of actually seeing Iranian F-14s firing missiles I'll believe it's a false flag if this sitting duck gets hit. The Iranians should make a statement now that they will not be the first to fire.
