Under the Obama administration, fleeing from a fight is just routine measure. This president will go down in history as the biggest coward to ever preside.

The term stand your ground has no meaning under this president.

Let's face it, the world has some bad people in it, and no amount of running away, sticking your head in the sand will alleviate this reality.

It's tricky but no one said Poker was easy, you just have to be a good player.

The problem is the US is so broke that we actually cannot sustain our military forces overseas for very long.

We still have so many military bases and air bases in the region that this move is insignificant.

Although it could mean that we're letting russia do it's thing, gain more power in Iraq and Syria. Most of what Russia is trying to do is in line with our goals anyway.

Likely pulling the Patriots out of Turkey to protect future orders. Who would by them after seeing that they didn't work. That carrier may need maintenance, or could be action is about to heat up, and they know that in retaliation, they can't really protect the Carriers from being deep sixed.

The plan from the date of the deployment was always to pull the missiles out in October. The mandate from Turkey was always limited. They announced in August that they were removing them.

As for the carrier, it needs to come home for routine maintenance. The other carriers are either in maintenance, or deployed in other areas.

Any idea as to whether there's a plan to redeploy another carrier? I wouldn't think they'd leave the area unattended for too long.

They're looking at about a two month gap. They had a gap in 2007 too. Once they have a group available they'll deploy to the region.

The Truman is scheduled to deploy next. They started workups at the start of September. They're running a little behind due to damage from a fire on deck involving an F-18. They started September 1, and cut workups down to 40 days to deploy sooner. The Navy ran into maintenance schedule issues because of Eisenhower. So now Bush is running behind, which will push the rest of the schedule back more.

They have been watching too much RT.


They believe their own hype.

The US are pulling out their carrier to. Calling it maintenance......and saying it was pulled out because they didnt want to be in the way of Russian jets. So one of the two might be the truth.

They announced that they were removing it months before Russia moved into Syria. They were talking about having no carrier in the region at the end of July.

Yeah Yeah Yeah....the maintenance thingy. We can read between the lines.

So they knew in July that Russia was deploying to Syria. Sure. Oh I forgot. Anything the US says, the opposite is the truth because they're evil and lie about everything.

The Roosevelt has been at sea for most of a year running continuous operations. That means it requires work.

No, they didnt. The US never saw this comming, thats for sure.

But it is odd that they would pull their carrier right now when tention is this high. The US are not happy that Russia is pounding their proxis...and flying circles around them up there.

Yeah, so the drones can handle it without putting the really mega-expensive equipment and thousand more personnel in harm's way should this thing go south. Smart move.

Wonder if that carrier might be heading next. Maybe to the East China Sea?

The timing of this was known months ago. The Roosevelt was always going to leave before the Truman was ready to deploy. This has nothing to do with Russia or their deployment.

It's going home for scheduled maintenance. They've been out at sea for 9 months already.

I will give a star for the effort. Thanks Zapho

The Navy doesn't even know yet. They're going to be at least three months in maintenance, and then another two or three in workups.
