The U.S. Navy guided missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71); the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75); fleet replenishment oiler USNS Big Horn (T-AO 198); the guided missile destroyer USS Ross (DDG 71); the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72); and the guided missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG 60) cruise in formation under way in the Gulf of Oman.

That’s a lot of firepower against one confused and already bloodied Syria. Wouldn’t want to be facing a group like this one. Imagine President Assad waking up Thursday morning with this bunch, possibly more of the same (there’s a whole lot where these came from) laid out off his favorite beach.

These days you need nerves of steel to be a ruthless despot, I’m telling you.

    This is all well and good, but Russia successfully delivered anti-ship missiles to Syria last week. If U.S. war ships are attacked that will be a “game changer,”

    So how does Obama manage?

  6. Umm the USS Cape St. George is in its home port in San Diego know this 100% for the hubby isn't at sea atm……….and I'm pretty sure the Truman is home too. So basically there is nothing factual in this report.

  7. Rachel Rousseau-Erlichman says:

    Too bad Obama is worried about Syria and he didn’t concern himself with the citizens in Benghazi, Libya.
