This is the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, USS George H.W. Bush, performing maritime support operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility, the Mediterranean Sea.
It can deliver American power to any corner of the world within days. It is the power behind the speeches President Barack Obama delivered in the region last week.
It is largely the reason why everyone was listening so politely while President Obama was telling them such insufferable untruths about the region, its hopes and its future. You can be insufferable when you carry such a big carrier.
This is the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning CV16. It’s also very big.
