I've never been accused of being psychic, psycho perhaps.
It does seem to me though, that a '
Gulf of Tonkin' type event is in the offing where Iran is concerned.
First, you have the absolute idiocy of putting carrier groups in the Persian Gulf, literally making them fish in a barrel. Doing so limits their
capability, and greatly increases their vulnerability.
Next you have the fact that the Eisenhower was rushed out of a major dry dock overhaul to be put in this situation. Carriers are notoriously
difficult to sink, so perhaps the Ike has been given a little help. The recent sinking of Ike contemporaries to make 'reefs' would have served as
opportunities to work the bugs out of such an operation.
I'm not making a prediction, but I won't be a bit surprised to see the Ike go down. "Remember the Eisenhower"!!!! Kind of catchy, huh?
