USS Enterprise (CVN 65) departed its homeport of Norfolk, Va., Jan. 11 to participate in a Composite Unit Training Exercise (COMPTUEX) and Joint Task Force Exercise (JTFEX). The early morning departure was the next to last departure from Naval Station Norfolk for the 50-year-old carrier. Enterprise is scheduled to enter deactivation after completing its 22nd and final deployment later this year. COMPTUEX is the intermediate phase of the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group’s (CSG) Inter-Deployment Training Cycle (IDTC), designed to hone warfare skills throughout the strike group while maintaining unit proficiency. “It’s the final exercise to ensure Enterprise is combat ready,” said USS Enterprise Commanding Officer Capt. William Hamilton Jr.

and what triggered the Vietnam war was
January 1959, North Vietnam's Central Committee issued a secret resolution authorizing an "armed struggle," allowing the southern communists to begin large-scale operations against the South Vietnamese military. North Vietnam supplied troops and supplies in earnest, and the infiltration of men and weapons from the North began along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
Why do some people ignore the real reason for the Vietnam war?

What is remarkable here is the fact that they moved old ships to Pearl Harbor.
Then, just in time it seems, the harbor was attacked, while the new ships were away.
Now we have another old ship, and a place for it to be sunk, possibly used again.
Definitely keeping my eyes on this.

Seriously guys, get out more! Do you honestly think that such a plan has been foiled by a YT video?

Yup, looks pretty plausible to me.
Only problem is,
Now there is this well produced video out there calling out EXACTLY what they plan to do
which has generated God knows how much discussion.
The plan has effectively been fioled.
I can not imagine they would be foolish enough to go thru with it now.
I mean, it is one thing to have a T.V. pilot which loosely describes the events of 911 BEFORE it ever happened.
It is quite another for someone to go out of their way to produce a video of PRECISELY what our government plans on doing and HOW they plan on going about it.
I see this happening,
which is why I don't see this happening.

No one on this board uses the term "False Flag" correctly.
A false flag is not an attack by a country on itself. A false flag is one country using the flag of another to attack it.
The term comes from the Age of Sail. As an example a British frigate would be sailing in the Atlantic and come across a French convoy. In order to get close to teh convoy and attack it the British would run a French naval flag up the mast. When they got to within firing range they were required by the "laws of the sea" to pull that false French flag down and run up their own Naval colors. The laws of the sea were traditions and not really a "law" they were more or less agreed upon and set down in treaties.
The term has come to mean all mannor of stupid ideas but thats not its correct usage.
You kids love to pump up Iran and make them out to be superbadazz. Those threads draw out the resident anti Israel crowd and arab chest bumpers. Then you love to trash the US military for picking on poor defensless Iran. Then you love to trash the US military as weak bullies who just need to get beat so it will show them a thing or two. Then you claim the US military is so all powerfull that no one would actually attack them so if something happens IT MUST BE a false flag!!! Consistantly inconsistant hysterical ravings of pot smoking highschoolers!
