US Naval Update: CVN 65 Enterprise Abandons Libya, Reinforces CVN 70 Vinson In Straits Of Hormuz

Tyler Durden's picture

Wonder why the administration made such a stink of reducing the US airborne presence around Libya, and handing it off to France, Italy, Canada and Turkey? Here's the answer: the CVN65 Enterprise which last week was within striking distance of Libya, has quietly left the Red Sea and is now virtually swimming in the wake of CVN 70 Vinson in the Strait of Hormuz. Because obviously whatever is about to happen in the Persian Gulf will need not one but two aircraft carrier formations. And meanwhile in Japan the Washington is doing all it can to put radiation free miles between itself and Fukushima, even as the Essex, chock full of marines is sitting on the coast waiting for orders.

The answer lies in your question, use the "Find" feature of your browser.

"my account" - "track"

Go to 'My Account'. There is a tab there labeled 'Track'.
If you made it through Captcha, you can probably figure it out from there.

Clycntct's picture

It shows up for the threads I've crused and the sum total of comments but not specifically the ones I've posted? I'm pretty sure back a while it would show me My comments? Then it would get me to wherever I left off.

I tried the other day to no sucess so I just thought I'd try again. Scratcing head.

There is also a spell check for your comments.  Try the little check mark with "ABC" above it.  Makes for a more credible and tidy comment.

I'm pissed. It's not about you. Rip my attic.

No worries mate, we are tracking everything you write.

I just want to go on record as saying that I do not actually own any guns, gold, silver or ammunition.  I voted in favor or every president ever elected, be they Republican or Democrat.  Hillary is my mentor.  I fully support the efforts of the federal government, and the Federal Reserve.  I support the recommendation of Ben Bernanke for a Nobel Peace fact, I think is should be named The Ben Bernanke Nobel Peace Prize for Economic Studies.  Of course, Barrack Obama would have the Barrack Obama Nobel Peace Prize for Global Peace Pursuits.  I only read Zero Hedge to keep up with the actions of the subservients so that I can report them to Janet Napolitano.  Ron Paul, who?  I have faith that the federal government will get it right, and of course, the government cannot be blamed for all of our problems.  I am happy to allow the bank to own my home even after the mortgage is paid, no note is necessary.  I fully understand that we are in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, and Syria to promote Democracy and support the people.  I'm sure that there were weapons of mass destruction.  There is no nuclear risk in Japan.  The shrimp in the Gulf are fine...and tasty.

That's dirty, and spooky.  Thanks for the heads up.

At least all of me friends here at ZH will be there at the FEMA camp

with me.

Yes. Good. A prudent strategy no doubt. Keep that channel open at all costs.

I find myself wondering about the exact whereabouts of CVN 76 vs. the epicenter of the Japan quake, on that date.  Just sayin'.

Hello! Do you think Obama can win the "Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights" this year?

You can't make things like this up. It's too funny. 

falak pema's picture

Well he is no worse than those Norwegian boys. They gave a Nobel PP to : BO, HK+TVD, only mention the most evident that come to peaceful mentors of mankind...but then Nobel himself...was a Q-daffy type dictator  fan in his day and age.

I know you've heard this before, however I just wanted to add my $0.02.  You and a few others (read: about 5) are ones that I actively search out in threads. Mind you, I don't agree 100% with what you say most of the time -- it's enough coincidence on your comments that it's noticeable.

I thank you (and others) for their contribution (including TD) to ZH and one of my favorite commentary blogs.

In side-step, I agree with your graphic.  Risk as a game indeed.

If one could only be a fly on the wall on all conversations relating to geopolitical thought and theory.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Thank you for your kind words. I would be disappointed if you agreed with me all the time though my ego would certainly love it. :>)

I have two goals here on ZH. To provoke and promote thought and discussion. Thus the deliberate naming of my ID to be a source of irritation....even for me. And most importantly from an all too selfish point of view, I wish to learn from the discussions whether prompted by me or anyone else.

And I can easily say that on a daily basis I learn more here than I do anywhere else, be it my personal library or the Internet at large. There's just no substitute for a diverse group of smart people rubbing minds and generating heat. Thank you for contributing to the social nuclear reaction that is Zero Hedge.

You make that sound so dirty. Not that it's a bad thing.

I'm a fan of George Washington as well.

There are only two important groups here. Pro PM and anti-PM. One of them is right and the other is wrong.

It's going to be hilarious to watch ZH explode with fury when the SHFan and the US govt clamps down on info like this.


Oh the humanity, we can't hear about secret military movements anymore! We have no good threads to post our Nazi comments on anymore! Well, guess it's back to Democratic Underground then...:(

Ah, Porky... and what could be bad for GDP, with a genius like The Bernank steering us safely to harbor?

I don't think the Israelis care what color they are.

Not "jew-colored"?

That sounds bad, but the government of Israel IS officially racist.

CheapPanderingCrony's picture

The only racists in here are you guys. Though its refreshing for once to see those who don't try to hide it. Nothing like some good Jew hatred to get the volume going in the forum.

The entire "Finance" (finess) industry is a hokus pokus fraud of Fuksushimi sized magnitude. Arabs say that "Jews can pull money out of thin air" for a good reason. Its cause Arab Banks Do Not Charge Interest Raping Rates since its Illegal Under Sharia Law. But Arab Banks not all use Sharia Banking. Must ask first. Also Jak Bank in Sweden only charge commission on loans at low rate and Bank CEO not a Billionaire.

And stop bashing Jews just cause they are smarter than everyone else and figured out its easier to make money by tricking the shit out of lots of stupid sheep and setting up a Federal Reserve Mafia and fucking 12 year old girls in ass.

Remember just the facts Mam, no Nazis!!!!

Israeli Buthole Surfs up Dudes!!
