Carrier strike group (CSG) is an operational formation of the United States Navy. It is centered on an aircraft carrier and a carrier air wing (CVW) of 65 to 70 aircrafts. It’s composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers and/or frigates. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. Carrier strike groups comprise a principal element of U.S. power projection over the world’s oceans.

    Out of harm’s way!? Guess they are only meant to bully weak nations that can’t hit back.

    • IMHO

      Hmmm. Out of harms way. That’s what I was thinking. But are we sure this is accurate?

      • BlueInGreen

        The accuracy of this can be brought under scrutiny (I personally don’t know if this is accurate or not) but from a strategic point of the view the US probably doesn’t want to bring its Aircraft carriers in range of the weapons that China, Iran and Russia posses.

        If we take the hypothetical scenario of US attacking Iran the US would much rather just use its air bases then risk the possibility of an aircraft carrier being sunk (huge hit to both moral and budget). Russia has missiles that can absolutely decimate any surface the US currently fields on the sea. China has the DF-21D (amongst others) and Iran has 1,000s of Fateh class missiles ranging from 313,110 to Khalje Fars and the recent highly accurate Zolfighar, Mobin missiles all more than sufficient to either outright destroy current US surface warships or render them out of commission.

        Losing an aircraft is a big hit to the national pride and prowess of the self-proclaimed strongest military in the world. Also it wouldn’t make much sense from a tactical point of view since Aircraft carriers are largely a relic of the WW2 and cold war era. They are amazing against nations that don’t have the ability to hit an aircraft carriers or military targets beyond their borders but US enemies today have that ability in spades and won’t hesitate to send 1,000 plus sailors to the bottom on the ocean along with a 10 billion dollar plus ship.

        Realistically though the US would most likely anchor its Aircraft carriers out the known range of the enemy nations weapons in order to mitigate possible damage to its naval assets.

        • IMHO

          I agree. Don’t forget that Iran also has the new high speed torpedoes as well and given the right conditions could take out a carrier as well. Don’t underestimate their capabilities.
          And given the supposed capabilities of Russia’s new weapons I don’t think there is an “out of range” for those carriers any more.

      • hope springs eternal.

        Agree. Read elsewhere that the USN Harry Trueman was just outside the Med.
        Also ”out of range” is difficult nowadays, with targeting and weapons from the satellites!

    Still in port, the yanks are broke.

      There isn’t much point in keeping them overseas anyway, it was usually common for most of their aircraft carriers to remain near the continental US throughout the Cold War and ever since the 90s.

      • SG

        Either way, the effective use of camouflage applied to mobile air defense weaponry and other countermeasures can make detection from air and satellite reconnaissance rather difficult; the air war fought between NATO and Serbia in the late 90s is a good example of this, despite Serbia not having the technological advantage.

        The NATO commander at the time was a Jewish-American named Wesley Clark who infamously stated:

        “Let’s not forget what the origin of the problem is. There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.” ~ Wesley Clark.

        And yet he hypocritically supports Jewish ethno-nationalism for Israel while he simultaneously supports diversity everywhere else and especially in the West, which isn’t surprising considering this position is shared by almost every Jew. Apparently they believe they are the only people in the world who deserve their own borders, which isn’t surprising considering the contents of their “religious” material. Their “religion” is just a mask for their supremacist tendencies, while Anglo-Saxons and other Westerners are among their many useful scapegoats.

        [Despite being Philo-Semitic,
        naively and disingenuously so in my opinion, Jared Taylor exposes the
        Jewish hypocrisy and double standards in relation to mass immigration
        and what they advocate for us in the West, and what they want for
        themselves in Israel. In the West they want multiculturalism,
        immigration, diversity, and
        miscegenation, meanwhile in Israel they have some of the most
        restrictive immigration laws, and frown upon any marriage between Jew
        and non-Jew. The interviewer even admits that he would support banning
        the arguments made by Jared Taylor invoking the holocaust narrative as
        justification for curtailing free speech on the issues Taylor talks
        about. The Jewish interviewer also said that he supports a world in
        which there are no borders, but not when it comes to Israel
        unsurprisingly.

        This is an excellent interview to show those who deny that Jews support one thing for the West
        and another for the Jewish state of Israel. They are Zionists for
        Israel and Multiracialist advocates for Western nations. The idea is to deconstruct homogenous European nations in their own group interests.]

        “wasn’t uncommon for most of their aircraft carriers to remain near the
        continental US throughout most of the Cold War and the past few decades.”

        BS

        • SG

          Even if they were not in US home waters for 49.9% of the time, they were technically at home around this time. Either way regardless of whether or not either of us is right or wrong, there are nicer ways of saying that.

        • SG

          Although here’s an example of something you’re certainly wrong about and too stubborn to look into, mostly as a result of the misinformation people are fed from early childhood and throughout their entire lives.

          Naturally there are rude and inconsiderate cretins who will slander anyone who dares to challenge the current cult-like status quo while pointing this out, they prefer to take the lazy way out and cling to their narrow-minded ignorance and choosing to allow middle men to tell them what’s what, rather than going directly to the source and look into it from an objective perspective.

          “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” ~ Voltaire

          This is a much more civil and pragmatic thing to do instead of foolishly labeling and slandering anyone who openly disagrees with the “official” state sponsored WW2 and holocuast narratives, and if these “revisionists’ truly were wrong, then it wouldn’t be illegal to question these narratives in 17 countries and both sides would be given equal representation. If they were given fair and equal representation, it would deal great damage to the NWO which includes not only the Western world and other places around the world, but also Russia and China as well.
