Second US Warship Enters Black Sea To "Promote Peace And Stability"

Tyler Durden's picture


Less than two short weeks ago, the US sent their first warship into The Black Sea to "reassure NATO allies and Black Sea partners." Since then, thing shave escalated and then de-escalated last week with the so-called "truce deal." So why is the US sending a second ship? The Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate USS Taylor (FFG 50), homeported in Mayport, Fla., will enter the Black Sea April 22 to "promote peace and stability in the region." We are sure that Putin will stand idly by and watch as NATO and the US build forces on his borders, but no matter how aggressive his response, the US Navy combat dolphin and sea lion team will not accompany the mission.


As Navy reports,

The Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate USS Taylor (FFG 50), homeported in Mayport, Fla., will enter the Black Sea April 22 to promote peace and stability in the region.



The U.S. Navy routinely operates ships in the Black Sea consistent with the Montreux Convention and International Law. Taylor's mission is to reassure NATO allies of the U.S. Navy's commitment to strengthen and improve interoperability while working toward mutual goals in the region.


Taylor recently completed repairs at Naval Support Activity Souda Bay, Greece. After a round of sea trials that measured the vessel's performance, general seaworthiness, speed and maneuverability, she has now resumed her operations.


Taylor is deployed in a multi-mission role in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations to contribute to regional maritime security, conduct bilateral and multilateral training missions, and to support NATO operations and deployments throughout the region.

We are sure Putin will simply watch and not respond in any way as this happens, but as The Guardian reports,

However ominously martial Russia’s actions toward Ukraine have become, the next combatants in the crisis will not be the US navy’s fleet of dolphins.



Yes, the navy trains and keeps dolphins, whose powerful innate echolocation abilities help sailors spot suspicious undersea objects that might be mines. The marine mammal enlistees are the aquatic equivalent of the dogs, whose sophisticated sense of smell has aided US soldiers in the hunt for homemade insurgent bombs on land.

But, contrary to reports, the dolphins are not accompanying the USS Donald Cook to the Black Sea.

Russia’s Izvestia newspaper recently asserted that a team of US dolphins had formed a maritime security perimeter around the Cook, a guided missile destroyer the US recently sent to international waters near Ukraine.

Last week, Russian fighter jets passed over the warship in a move the Pentagon considered a provocation, but it is unclear what the dolphins would have done to confront Russian airpower.


The question is moot, since, according to the navy, the dolphins were never alongside the Cook in the first place.

“There is no truth to this report,” said Lieutenant Commander Katie Cerezo, a navy spokeswoman.

The dolphins and sea lions are rarely deployed. In addition to worldwide demonstrations and exhibitions, the vast majority of actual naval dolphin operations are conducted in US harbors and ports, said Ed Budzyna, a spokesman for the naval marine mammal program.


“As far as being deployed to other regions and areas, that doesn’t really happen,” Budzyna said. “I don’t believe they were ever at the Black Sea."

Sort of like this:

"In mid-2000, the U.S.Navy removed the frigates' Mk 13 single-arm missile launchers and magazines because the primary missile, the Standard SM-1MR, became outmoded.... The "zone-defense" anti-aircraft warfare (AAW) capability has vanished, and all that remains is a "point-defense" type of AAW armament."


IE... it's defenseless.   The Russians know it.   The Kenyan dares not goad the bear.  

This is merely to (try to) convince the US electorate he's not an impotent sap.

Russian Sukhoi Su -24 with the newest jamming complex paralyzed in the Black Sea the most modern American combat management system "Aegis" installed on the destroyer "USS Donald Cook". Pavel Zolotarev, Deputy Director, Institute of USA and Canada, shares details about this version which is being actively discussed in the Russian media and by bloggers.

US destroyer "Donald Cook" with cruise missiles "Tomahawk" entered the neutral waters of the Black Sea on April 10. The purpose was a demonstration of force and intimidation in connection with the position of Russia in Ukraine and Crimea. The appearance of American warships in these waters is in contradiction of the Montreux Convention about the nature and duration of stay in the Black Sea by the military ships of countries not washed by this sea.

In response, Russia sent an unarmed bomber Su- 24 to fly around the U.S. destroyer. However, experts say that this plane was equipped with the latest Russian electronic warfare complex. According to this version, "Aegis" spotted from afar the approaching aircraft, and sounded alarm. Everything went normally, American radars calculated the speed of the approaching target. And suddenly all the screens went blank. "Aegis" was not working any more, and the rockets could not get target information. Meanwhile, Su-24 flew over the deck of the destroyer, did battle turn and simulated missile attack on the target. Then it turned and repeated the maneuver. And did so 12 times.

Apparently, all efforts to revive the "Aegis" and provide target information for the defence failed. Russia's reaction to military pressure from the United States was profoundly calm, feels the Russian political scientist Pavel Zolotarev:

The demonstration was original enough. A bomber without any weapons, but having onboard equipment for jamming enemy radar, worked against a destroyer equipped with "Aegis", the most modern system of air and missile defence. But this system of mobile location, in this case the ship, has a significant drawback. That is, the target tracking capabilities. They work well when there is a number of these ships which can coordinate with each other somehow. In this case there was just one destroyer. And, apparently, the algorithm of the radar in the "Aegis” system on the destroyer did not load under the influence of jamming by the Su-24. It was therefore not only a nervous reaction to the fact of flying around by the Russin bomber which was common practice during the Cold War. The reaction of the Americans was due to the fact that most modern system, especially its informative or radar part, did not work adequately. Therefore, there was such a nervous reaction to the whole episode.

Su-24 is an old, old aircraft (operational in 1974). The Aegis sytem is the newest (and the most expensive) the USN has to date.

If this is even half true, the Russians got a huge ROI out of it...

It probably is trained to fly a carbon monoxide emitting, jet fuel sucking F-22 Raptor (the one that malfunctions, rendering pilots unconscious), and also don a bomb protective suit to do "the long walk" and defuse bombs/mines a la Hurt Locker style, too.

Putin is rumored to have already given the order to release the Spetsnaz trained Russian Orca Team 6 as a countermeasure to the Navy Dolphin Deployment.

That brings back memories! Navy Dolphins have been part of the force for many decades. I even remember the facility where Pacific Fleet Dolphins got their training. We were informed at one of our Navy Training Schools what these dolphins were being used for and what types of intelligence they allowed the Navy to collect. Oddly enough, the information we were given was part of a Black Sea operation aimed at Sevastopol and the then Soviet Navy.

The idea of using them goes way back, and the Russian Navy itself admits to having it's own dolphin units.

As to speading peace and stability. America has a duty to the world to maintain peace and freedom across the globe. From Afghanistan and Iraq, the peace and freedom was paid for in lives and money, but America won those battles. Now we have helped to spread the peace and stability in Gerorgia, which fought off a Russian invasion in 2008. Syria has been partly liberated by American CIA and cash infusions to freedom fighters in Syria. Libya was liberated in a well know operation. Kosovo was added to the free world by a NATO campaign to sepreate Kosovo from Serbia. This operation was topped off by a recent election there that made it independent as a new free and democratic nation. South Sudan has been liberated and also given a vote to become independent and liberate all that oil too, for the new contracts US oil giants now have there.

Ukraine had an illegal government that won election a few years back, but not being a pro USA government, it was obvious that all Ukrainians changed their minds and wanted the election overturned by guns, fire bombs, clubs and various other freedom fighter weapons. Now that peace and freedom have won out in Kiev, the US is duty bound to defeat the terrorists in East Ukraine. As long as that group holds out against freedom and prosperity and IMF loans, Ukraine will never been a prosperous and liberated example of American freedom.

On the "to liberate list"is of course the axis of Evil, Iran. All evil in the Middle East stems from Iran's illegal government, a government that Israel should step in and expunge in favor of a USA and Israeli hand picked ruler, who can finally institute total freedom in Iran.

Other nations are also evil, and it is America's duty to liberate all people's seeking American IMF loans, World Bank technocrate leaders and a seat at the NATO freedom table.

Evil is still out there. Obama is a peace prize hero, he will liberate the subject people's of the world. Russia being the nation most in need of American freedom, IMF loans and a good dose of American Media Cultural Freedom and US corpoate governance.

Spread that freedom, we are exceptional people, our role is to defeat the forces of evil and let the Zionest Bankers and Neoliberal economics professors liberate them.

The US Navy could no longer afford combat dolphins, and had to sell them to Sea World.

They were replaced by mutant sea bass.

Enough fiddle-fuckin' around with these foppish feckless frigates.

It's time to send in the USS Biden, bristling with 12 gauge shotguns.

Military/Navy people know that they have both offensive and defensive purposes:

Plant explosives and to find mines. Perhaps they are also trained to locate subs.
Being sonar based, you can probably repell them with a strong audio pitch/mix.

Instead of just 'pinging', let'em groove to Iron Butterfly and "In a Goda Davida"
