Well at this point they will be no boots on the ground...we screwed up big time over there in my opinion.
We all know this would be another Vietnam. I know a guy that has has a buss. here that lived there and he said point blank" there will never ever be
peace there.. it has been going on for a thousand years..the US can do nothing... the best thing is to let them fight it out"!WASHINGTON — Defense
Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered an aircraft carrier — the USS George H.W. Bush — to move from the northern Arabian Sea to the Persian Gulf as
President Obama considers possible military options for Iraq.
The George Bush is the ONLY carrier in the Gulf region and it has been there since February. This is NOT a new deployment. Indeed, this is the
lightest US forces have been in the area in YEARS because there is no Amphibious Ready Group anywhere near. the US has been operating with two CVN
Carrier Strike Groups in the Gulf region over 50% of the time for literally years.
If you want to report this accurately you need to point out that the lone carrier in the Gulf was moved slightly closer to Iraq than it was before.
What is unusual here is that there are not MORE forces afloat in the Gulf.
