Wow...the Turks are outraged by this move. The US pulling back its 2 carriers and sending them home though does send a message that they are trying to de-escalate the situation. This is good news.

they were just there for the show
so Israel can stfu

US will not take part in any futur war
not with Syria or Iran
Obama would never risk any war with Russia and China
and he knows it that it would be suicidal

Obama is not Romney !

Pulling back was the smartest move. Russia ain't gonna play games. Putin is in power for a reason. He hates the USA and it will fall on him to find a way to put us in our war mongering place.

Wow OK. How could this be a true viewpoint? Especially with regards to Syria. Iran is a different story- much more powerful and aligned than Iraq, Afghanistan.

Romney may have been more of an announced warhawk than Obama, but Obama has shown consistently to be totally in favor of war. Did you ignore the Libya situation, or the hundreds of drone attacks under BO?

Romney was a sugary drink that marketed himself as a can of soda. Obama is a sugary drink that markets himself as a health beverage.

Putin is KGB Obama is CIA

The worlds governments work together to keep you a slave they create circumstances in your life that is all.

The governments only protect the rich this is what the word democracy means, government means to govern your mind, economics is based on keeping you in fear and that is what the news is for too whether its communist news or capitalist.

Once we understand what these words mean then maybe we will stand together and stop letting the elite divide us and kill us.

Excuse me. The USS Eisenhower is being set home from the Persian Gulf EARLY to have repairs done on its flight deck (it gets re-surfaced.) The Eisenhower was SUPPOSED to stay in the Gulf another couple of months, but problems with one of our other carriers now in home port forced the Eisenhower to come home early so that it can re-deploy in a couple of months. It was cited as "off the coast of Turkey" because it had the audacity to go through the Suez Canal on its way across the mediterranean and into the Atlantic, where it has been for several days. It will be home by Christmas. This was unplanned, but it is because one of our other carrier is broken.

The USS Iwo Jima, which is actually an LHD (Landing Helicopter Dock), not a carrier like a CVN, was just relieved by the USS Pelelieu in the Persian Gulf and is ALSO headed home. It hung out off the coast of Israel for a few extra weeks when Hamas was throwing rockets at Israel in case it needed to be use for evacuation purposes. It was on the way home when this happened.

So, in actuality, the US presence in the Persian Gulf is down to one carrier, the USS Stennis, and one LHD, the USS Pelelieu, which is one CVN LESS than normal. There is now no appreciable presence in the Med save a few destroyers, which is normal. The 6th Fleet is headquartered in Naples.

No mystery at all. No build up. No draw down.

True, but neither Obama nor Romney make the ultimate decisions!

But, the carriers being removed is a good thing, a short step AWAY from the edge.

If the Russians give up on Assad this will be the time you'll see a shift in thinking. Western troops will never set foot on Syrian soil (the closeness they'll will be is the Turkish border with Syria and the Jordan and Syrian border) Its obvious why there is no fly zone yet ( because Russians will not go for it) They're pissed with the west over Libya.

I think Syria has messed up the American/ Israel plans to bomb Iran in 2013. From an American standpoint ( they wanted regime change in Syria) before the bombs starting falling on Iranian missile and nuclear sites) Going in before there was a change of government in Syria ( has a high risk of dragging Syria in) seen their a supporter and ally of Iran.
edit on 17-12-2012 by P12SOLD because: (no reason given)

Obama is NOT CIA. Where did you get this information? Obama was a community organizer. He has no ties to the intelligence agency and he does NOT come from a long line US Military service men.

The Eisenhower has been out of the Med for a while now. It was transiting from the Gulf, back home to Norfolk for flight deck repairs.

It's in the Atlantic now, scheduled to arrive in Norfolk 19 Dec.

wtkr.com...

After the repairs Eisenhower will transit back to the gulf and will pass by Syria once again around mid-late Feb. Then everyone can get lathered up all over again about nothing.

Just a thought... The US usually keeps two carriers in the region, and the Navy is bringing one home early, before 12/21/12 without replacing it because there is something wrong with the Nimitz, AND there is another carrier that is supposed to go back out in January???

What if they are bringing the carrier home for some other 12/21/12 - SHTF -related mission? Just a thought...

I didn't realize our military put the Yuletide spirit before national security interests. There is a reason why they usually keep two Carrier groups in that region between Syria, Iran, Israel, the New Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan.... need I go on?
