It seems US will be going forth, possibly with France and a few others in a target strike against Syrian Military targets. The deployment of the largest ACC in the world is absolute proof, IMO.
In a way, I'm glad they are deploying this ACC because this attack will not be so cut and dry. There will be a retaliation, however large or small, and the US needs to be ready to counter because I truly don't believe the 9 ships in the Med can handle the full repercussion it will face.
The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier and four other ships in its strike group moved into the Red Sea early on Monday, U.S. defense officials said, describing the move as “prudent planning” in case the ships are needed for military action against Syria.
The officials said the Nimitz entered the Red Sea around 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT), but the strike group had not received any orders to move into the Mediterranean, where five U.S. destroyers and an amphibious ship, the USS San Antonio, remain poised for possible cruise missile strikes against Syria.
