Watch As A US Missile Destroyer Departs Greece For The Black Sea

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Yesterday we reported that with the US aircraft carrier, CVN-77 George H.W. Bush, anchoring in Piraeus, Greece, an unnamed US warship had been granted permission by Turkey to cross the Bosphorus and enter the Black Sea. There was speculation it may be the carrier itself, even though such a crossing would be forbidden by the Montreaux Convention. Today we have the answer: it is not CVN-77, but one of the ships from its aircraft carrier strike group - the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxton, which as the clip below shows, just departed the Greek port of Souda Bay earlier today.

From Stripes.com:

A U.S. guided-missile destroyer is bound for the Black Sea in what the Navy calls a routine visit unrelated to events in Ukraine.

 

The USS Truxtun, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer with about 300 sailors on board, departed Greece early Thursday, said a spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa in Naples.

 

The Truxtun is part of the George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group, which recently entered the Mediterranean and is training with regional navies before continuing to the Middle East. The group also includes Carrier Air Wing 8, the destroyer USS Roosevelt and the cruiser USS Philippine Sea.

But lest someone think that just like Russia's ICBM test coming at a most inopportune time, this move has anything to do with Ukraine tensions, the US Navy would like to frame the situation in a far more amicable manner:

The ship is scheduled to train with Romanian and Bulgarian naval forces for an unspecified period of time, conducting joint maneuvers and landing aircraft on ships. The spokesman, Lt. Shawn Eklund, said the visit is unrelated to Russia’s recent incursion into Ukraine. "Truxtun’s operations in the Black Sea were scheduled well in advance of her departure from the U.S.,” he said.

Well of course they were. But just in case not sending a missile destroyer into the Black Sea would be seen as a way to avoid escalations, it is best to make sure such confusion is avoided entirely.

For a brief glimpse of the truth behind the real purpose of this trip, we also find the destroyer will join the USS Taylor as the only two U.S. vessels inside the Black Sea during a period of heightened tensions. A a reminder, the Taylor, a guided-missile frigate, remains moored in Samsun, Turkey, after it ran aground in February - good thing it did not have to defend the "free world" from all those Sochi terrorists that America was convinced will blow everything up.

So what does a ship departing for the Black Sea for what may or may not be simple drills with friendly naval forces? The answer can be found in the clip below.

Looks like an old rusty Russian antisub vessel of 569 feet length suffered an unfortunate sinking "accident" in a 1,000 foot wide harbor entrance that is now blocking elements of the Ukrainian fleet.

As a result the Ukrainian navy now has undisputed control of Donuzlav Lake...

Also wouldn't be one without some Israeli Apologist Troll trying to convince the world the USS Liberty incident was anything but an intentional attack by Israel on a US boat, known to be a US boat, and attacked for one or more of about three reasons, to include an attempted false flag to provide an excuse for the US to attack Egypt.

My guess is lbj, that revolting puke, was in on it.

For some reason, I don't recall making that accusation. Probably because I didn't.

The Naval Court of Inquiry and the Army Pearl Harbor Board, in 1944, came to the uncomfortable conclusion that Washington had significant foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor. The "Purple Code," Japan's naval encoding mechanism, had been broken by American Naval Intelligence months in advance of Pearl Harbor, revealing the exact time and location of the event in question. The commanders on the ground were left deliberately uninformed. These are the facts. Perhaps not an attack directly fomented by Anglo-American Establishment, but certainly one facilitated by it.

If you care for a history lesson on the matter, I'd recommend the first 20 or so minutes of the following presentation. You might even learn something, who knows:

Nothing new. I resigned my commission in 2007 over Mr. Bush's War.

Had some good times flying the H-53 in Italy (and other places). But when the time came to continue past my obligated service, accept the promotion to LCDR, and obligate myself to several more years, I decided couldn't take the oath of office with a clear conscience.

Same principle would apply here. We have no strategic interest in Ukraine. If we get ourselves into a fight over this, I really feel for the families of the servicemen who won't come home, having been killed in a military action that had absolutely nothing to do with defending Dearborn, Little Rock, or Boise.

Quite possible perhaps we could be witnessing another June 8, 1967 on our hands.  But this ain't the Med in 1967...

And when those sailors are all dead as will be both John Kerry, President Remus and everyone else in Washington for that matter which will be the only "bright spot" to the outcome they might hatch, St. Peter is going to tell those sailors what happened to them and that they will never need to worry about sharing a room in the "basement furnace" with the likes either of them for eternity.

About the only comment I can make at this point.

Well hopefully the US Navy will not need any air support because the F-18s will be practically useless against Su-35 and Su-27 plus the SS-400's.

The only good things is the US Navy will not be flying that defective piece of shit the F-35 Scambird.  Made by another MIC scam contractor.  Kelly Johnson must be spinning in his grave.

Everyone is ignoring how the drones can drop the three ball in the corner pocket or put a HE shaped charge rocket on a tank, shredding everyone inside it or hitting a dozen tanks at once. Major imagng advances and multi-targeting programming mean a drone can be spent instantly and hit all targets in the field. Y'all need to read up on technology which the Yemeni and Paki mountain cave dwellers have been experiencing.

Not a big deal.  Very likely arranged well in advance and the US would have informed the Russians about the deployments. 

The US boats are nothing but sitting ducks there, it's not meaningful in military terms, but the opportunity for a false flag, or more likely, simply creating a situation where conflict is likely, it could well provide the spark the Global Banking Empire wants.

Harken ye, to the warnings inherent to this short documentary.

Packs a punch...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arleigh_Burke_class_destroyer

- Tomahawk missiles for land based targets

- Anti submarine

- Anti missile / anti aircraft

- Anti ship (some models, mot sure of this ship)

- Helicopter facilities

Should be able to survive for a while. Assume carrier in the Med can back it up. 

Goal may be to "rescue" the Ukrainian ships being blockaded by Russia in Savastopol. Getting Ukraine forces out of Crimea "unscathed" and without a fire fight under the cover of "Negotiation" may give Russia a soft victory, all those miltary resources to be re-deployed in eastern Ukraine to stand off the Russian threat there while allowing something of a de-escalation (as in remove points of contact for opposing forces).

Crimea has gone from Ukraine, goal now is to stop the rot, without their being a fire fight

Winston my friend,

Not a thought, not a care, not a damn two fucks is given of those aboard that duck for the souls who may be cast upon us, through the recklessness of those who serve 'US'.

Hell is beyond these bastards who send men to needless death, who through no fault of their own, have no idea they are wheels in the machine.  And those that would jump on me otherwise, not all of us have awoke, or can awake in the times we live, as we have here.

This will be a brutal reckoning, I stated on the first of January here, on ZH.

2014

The game is on, the end is right fucking here.....

My sincerest best to all those who found the truth, no matter when, we are by fucking Dog himself, going to need it.  If you need more proof than we already have, look at the fucking maniac imbeciles running us toward WW3.

This is, in the truest sense, insane.

Indeed, nothing more warmongering than pointing out which ship is going to be sacrificed for the false flag, and pointing it out publicly, so that when it is destroyed, enough people know about it to make a pretty big stink in an admittedly futile effort, but at least reducing the national productive capacity to make war on a prolonged basis.  

Fucking warmongers indeed.
