      I think he is probably nervously biting his lower lip, . . . because if there is a mission for the Ike, . . . it will NOT be to help him.

      You are a Fool, of course, US task forces have made a difference without even firing a shot, their mere presence has already altered many outcomes by what they can do, Since the President controls foreign policy as elected, he can order military action at his pleasure fo 90 days before requesting congressional approval, called the War Powers Act. What the article failed to state was how many nuclear attack submarines are patrolling nearby protecting the carrier group, and who knows the exact number of nuclear missile subs in the vicinity.

        Yeah, their mere presence…..hahahahahaha as if they haven’t been present in the vicinity before.
        Your ISIS-buddies are losing the war and are now cornered in Idlib in their last stand.
        You are fool if you think that a carrier is some kind of a wonder-weapon.
        The days are long gone.

    Evil Yankee imperialists think just because you have bigger brains and more talent than us, is ok for you to protect people when we try to bully and murder. You cannot defeat Mother Russia, we are destined to rule planet and make you say how much better we are than you!

      How’d your vaunted Soviet Union do at ruling the world? Russia – which has a total economy about the size of Italy – is declining as we speak. Dream on with your delusions of grandeur!

    And navigating deep bellow, shielded from indiscreet sonars by the noise of the aircraft carrier group, the secret first attack submarine with nuclear propulsion built in purpose for Israel.

    It’s there in case a war breaks out between Russia and Turkey. With only a few troops and planes in Syria, Putler would be a fool to mess with Turkey right now in Idlib, and they haven’t. Now, Turkey would be wise to avoid attacking Russian troops. Russia could send a couple of divisions to Syria in a hurry, or invade Turkey from the north. It’s hard to say how that would play out.

      Of course they haven’t messed with the Turks, they just killed about 50 of them (officially, in air strikes) hahahahahahaha

      Russia sending “couple of” divisions in Syria in the case of war with Turkey?
      Boy, how old are you and what century do you come from – 17th???
