The aircraft carrier, CVN 69, Dwight D. Eisenhower, is reported to be underway in the Atlantic ocean on a ‘training exercise’ and mapped off the east coast. The aircraft carrier, CNV 77, G.H.W. Bush, is reported to be underway in the Atlantic ocean conducting ‘qualifications’ and mapped off the east coast.
While all may be perfectly ‘normal’ or routine, I’m throwing it out there that it’s interesting that we have 2 carrier groups ‘apparently’ right off the east coast, given the recent revelation of government plans to evacuate Chicago, the implementation of Chicago’s ‘Red Zone’ ahead of the upcoming global NATO summit there, and the alternative news media attention to a possible upcoming ‘red flag’ event.
Additionally, it’s interesting to note that we have the Enterprise sitting at or near the Strait of Hormuz, opposite Iran (sitting duck?), and the Abraham Lincoln not too far south of that.
The amphibious warship’s ‘Iwo Jima’ and ‘Makin Island’ (LHD-7 and LHD-8) are apparently cruising (racing?) towards the Middle East region.
Again, all may be status quo, but it’s interesting to observe and speculate.
