You could damn near take out a site like this by posting the answer he wants.
I'm afraid I don't follow your reasoning. The "answer he wanted" wasn't the truth. He was apparently convinced of a conspiracy that did not
exist. Have you actually read through this thread? Let me summarize what happened here for you. OP is a grandfather. His granddaughter has a boyfriend
who is a sailor aboard the Vinson. The kid told the girl (confidentially, of course) that he was going on a secret mission to North Korea and that a
war was about to start and he might never see this girl again. OP came on here wanting 'help from any member' to confirm this.
I just happened to know at the time where the Vinson was and where it was going, so I was happy to tell him, but OP did not like the answer. You can
see the gist of his reaction in several of his posts that were removed for T&C violations. I believe he has minus 2000 points or so, another testimony
to his reaction. He edited some of his posts as well, so you don't have the entire picture here.
Why a man his age reacted like this is anyone's guess. Of course, it may be somewhat embarrassing to be duped by a kid using a line that must be
thousands of years old, but he also could have laughed at it, so I don't really know. I do know that the Vinson went where I said it would go,
performed the mission I said it would perform, and is taking its own sweet time getting back to San Diego.
Now you are suggesting this is all "psy ops"??? Not only that, another false answer would have taken down this site??? I just don't see it. Every
day people come on here and spout the most incredible conspiracies, from chemtrails to NWO nonsense to reptilian overlords. It's constant, infinitely
repetitive, and largely laughable.
The truth here is that the Vinson WASN'T going on a secret mission to North Korea, WASN'T going to start a war with China, and WASN'T about to get
itself blown out of the water. Instead it went on a completely routine and publicized mission to the Arabian Gulf. In a couple of weeks about 5,000
sailors will be coming off the ship and be able to tell you just that. There is no need for histionics here, no need for gnashing of teeth, no worries
that an answer different than the truth would be harmful to this site. The fact is, nothing bad happened. I know it can be a drag when that happens,
but that's what happened this time.
