US to send old warship to Persian Gulf

US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has vowed to maintain a fleet of eleven warships despite budget pressures, mostly to project sea power against Iran.

On board of the oldest US aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise, Panetta told the crowd of 1,700 sailors that the 50-year-old ship is heading to the Persian Gulf region in a direct message to Tehran.

“The reason we maintain a presence in the Middle East ... We want them to know that we are fully prepared to deal with any contingency and it's better for them to try to deal with us through diplomacy," Panetta said.

The USS Enterprise is the oldest active duty ship in the American naval fleet and its mission dates back to the Cuban missile crisis in 1962 and the Vietnam War.

The decision to maintain 11 warships comes at a time when the US economy is facing a national debt of more than USD 15 trillion after a decade of costly wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and is preparing for 487 billion dollars in defense cuts over the next 10 years.

On January 5, US President Barack Obama announced the shift in Washington's defense strategy to reduce the expenses. The eight-page document contained no details about how broad concepts for reshaping the military - such as focusing more on Asia and less on Europe - will translate into troop or weapons cuts.

Iran has warned the West of the possible closure of the Strait of Hormuz, where one-fifth of the world's oil shipments pass.

Iran threats were issued in response to aggressive military build-up, covert war operations and proposed sanctions against the Iranian oil sector, coming from the US and its allies.

  1. The USS Enterprise will be the “Sacrificial Boat” in the planned false flag attack to start a war with Iran. I Don’t believe anything the government or the mainstream media say anymore. I mean they just put 12,000 troops in Libya for Christ sakes!! Anyone care to wager that more war in Africa by a black US president is in the cards for 2012?

    …and what about the supply routes through Pakistan to NATOstan, formerly known as Afghanistan…how long before we see large scale attacks and the occupation of Pakistan?

    If we are to believe the CFR’s (Council on Foreign Relations) 5 year plan (2008 – 2013) of bringing in global institutions for World Government, we are going to see a ramp up of war on any country that resists, not to mention war on any bank that is not in the collective of the Rothschild central banks control.

    They will try to do it by war and economic collapse now.

  2. With the collapse of the oil embargo to force Iran into a confrontation over the Straight of Hormuz, the US and Israel are looking for another way to get the long-sought war with Iran started, and more to the point, need to make it look like Iran is starting hostilities in order to make it politically more difficult for Russia and China to support Iran.

    Now, recall that Israel has a past history of attacking US warships and framing others to trick the US into attacks on Israel's enemies, with the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty (initially blamed on Egypt) as the most well-known example.

    So here we have the USS Enterprise, the oldest carrier in the fleet, on her last legs, scheduled to be decommissioned next year. Her name is well known, in part because of the Star Trek TV series. Decommissioning a nuclear aircraft carrier is a very expensive process. USS Enterprise is powered by 8 nuclear reactors, all of which must be disposed of as nuclear waste material along with all the associated machinery. The US Navy would save a great deal of money, more than the scrap worth of the steel, if USS Enterprise were to be sunk in the Persian Gulf, where the radioactive mess is someone else's problem to deal with.

    So, why send an ancient ship at the end of her useful life into harms way? The same reason Franklin Roosevelt moved a bunch of obsolete warships from San Diego to Pearl Harbor, while the newer carriers and warships were well away from Hawaii on December 7th, 1941.

    Israel has 3 Dolphin submarines, given to her by Germany. They have been seen transiting the Suez Canal in the past, and could well be operating in the Gulf of Oman, even the Persian Gulf by now, lying in wait for a used-up and obsolete warship, more useful as a sacrificial lamb than an actual weapon, a ship with American sailors, to be attacked as Israel attacked the USS Liberty, then to be blamed on the designated target, Iran, by a compliant media.

    If you agree with my analysis, please post the above everywhere you see this carrier story. If we can make them doubt a false-flag will be believed, maybe they will call it off.

  3. @ Anonymous 2 - I agree with you 100%. It is the only way Western Establishment can start a war with Iran and have the sheep in the Western World join the war band-wagon to fill the NATO military. An attack in the Persian Gulf will cause oil to rise exponentially, and therefore crash what’s left of the stock markets, usher in the global depression on a massive scale, which they will blame on Iran.

    The US has put 12,000 troops in Libya to secure oil for Europe’s winter next year, which is why the EU has now agreed to put an oil ban on Iran starting in June or July this year.

    The US has troops in every single country around Iran and are building up their forces. Russia might not be ready for war if it comes, but China most certainly is and that is why the US is building up their forces around China and Russia…the winds of war are already blowing and it is my hope that the people around the World, but especially in the West will strike back against their governments and refuse to comply. If they have no soldiers, they have no war, or it will be very quick…with about 6 billion people affected.

    You can be sure that John Wheelers death last year has been covered up, and what he was about to announce to the World was that new biological weapons were going to be used on the population. When China can put at least 400 million in uniform, conventional war cannot be won by the West.

    If war does happen, you can be sure that the US government will use Biological weapons on the Asian population. The establishment are completely insane and will do anything to hang onto power. The truth is in the actions they have taken in the past 11 years and now their plans are in overdrive.
