As an Enterprise wife I would like to know exactly WHY, when WARNED, not to go into the strait Mr. Panetta insists that we still go in. Not only to naval wives of the ship but also to other people around the nation, this seems like a sign for bad news. Why would you want to put a ship of this prestige right into the middle of what could be a disaster? They are warning us not to go into the strait, but yet we are. I know this is what the military is supposed to do but there must be another way around it. How about the GOVERNMENT OFFICE officials do their job and speak with the Persians directly instead of sending these men and women in there. I would love to get an email response on this comment.kynmbahlv24 Jan-21

I agree, I am an Enterprise wife as well and this just makes no sense to me. Also, what happened to this thing called OPSEC. We can just post what ships are moving where?? I pray that none of these men and women are put into harms way because of our government’s insistence on stepping on everyone’s toes.jmm09c Jan-21

Both of the above are comments to the ABC article linked to in this posting

Enterprise underway in the Atlantic Ocean during Summer Pulse 2004.

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to realize the last place you want to be right now on Planet Earth is aboard the US Navy’s second oldest ship in commission, the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise.  The McCollum Memo is being played out again, this time on Iran.  Israelika are begging Iran to fire the first shot in what could turn into WWIII.  The Enterprise, you might say, is expendable, as the ancient Arizona was in 1941, or the World Trade Center Boaz & Jachin Towers were in 2001–necessary sacrifices to Geryon in order to mobilize a nation of sheep on the left and on the right.  Just because you saw something on TV don’t mean shit, y’know.

To boldly go where no man has gone before.

I hope there ain’t gonna be an unprecedented and bold fireworks show in the Gulf.  Remember, the Enterprise is NUCLEAR powered.  If you think it’s only the conspiracy community thinking what I’m thinking, read the comments above from spouses of those on board the ship in question (for now I’m assuming the comments are authentic).   They’re both probably not subscribers to my take on the world, but they both know their country is getting into Iran’s face and that could mean an upcoming feast for this guy .

On 3 July 1988, the USS Vincennes, in the currently hot waters of the Strait of Hormuz, “mistakenly” fired a heating-seeking surface-to-air missile into Iran Air Flight 655, killing all 290 passengers and crew on board the Airbus A300.  It would be easy to carry out a false flag, ala the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, in the Strait of Hormuz, or somewhere thereabouts, in the coming days or months, and say the Iranians carried out a revenge attack for the Vincennes’ 1988 mass murder.

Never mind, we now have the excuse to launch a full-scale assault on Earth’s most irresponsible nation, a country determined to destroy the Middle East’s only bastion of decency and freedom, Israel, home of the Universe’s most moral military team, the IDF.

Stay tuned and let’s hope the speculations in today’s rant are just that and nothing more.
