Love that name. Always wanted to be the one that names those sting operations and military acronyms.

I'm sure they'll quickly destroy those 15,000 lbs of pot.

Do they hire outside creatives for that or is it the work of a generals, chiefs, & sheriffs?

12,000 lbs of pot is one of thier largest hauls though.

Isn't burning all 10,000 lbs of weed counter productive?

I'm pretty sure that the carrier group was out on maneuvers when the smugglers sighted them and simply bailed ...

Sounds like a great party. I wonder if they have enough Doritos and Cheetos on board.

Great. But now where are they going to find 4 tons of frozen pizza rolls and 25,000 bags of Doritos?

In totally unrelated news, there are record numbers of volunteers lined up to join the US Coast Guard and Navy, many carrying duffle bags full of snack foods and tiny ziplock baggies.

IT'S A LIFE, MAN, IN THE NAVY, LIKE WOW!
Now with less cannibalism than ever before!

Can you even imagine how scary that must have been?

Picture yourself as one of these low level drug runners in a tiny boat when all of a sudden an absolutely immense US Aircraft Carrier starts pursuing you.

I bet they shat themselves on the spot.

This is why when I have kids, we're going to have a strict rule in our house. No drugs allowed, ever. And if we catch you with drugs, Mommy is going to smoke them all. Cause hey, free drugs.

While it'd certainly be intimidating, I wouldn't expect an aircraft carrier to be particularly fast. Then again, I'm a moron so I could be incorrect.

"This crew's response was amazing," Nimitz commanding officer Jeff Ruth said, staring intently at his hand. "Hey, has that skin between my fingers always been there? It looks like I'm growing webbing. Dude- do you think it's possible that they're putting stuff in the food to make us grow webbed fingers and toes? Look at it, man. It's, like, way past the knuckle." Captain Ruth shook his head and then added "To operationally shift gears quickly and safely from carrier qualifications to a real-world response shows what true professionals work here." He then moved the press conference to the officers' mess, where the "floating city's" galley crew had put together a special offering they called "Doritos on top of farking Everything."

THX 1138: While it'd certainly be intimidating, I wouldn't expect an aircraft carrier to be particularly fast. Then again, I'm a moron so I could be incorrect.


Keep in mind, a ships hull speed is determined by how long it is at the waterline. With all other factors being the same, a longer ship can be faster than a shorter one. Speedboats and hydroplanes follow different rules, so they can be fast and short, but for large vessels, longer roughly equates to potentially faster.

An aircraft carrier has an immense amount of power, and is also very long. The Nimitz can probably maintain 30+ knots (35 MPH) for long periods of time. On the water, that is pretty darn fast. Not to mention, an aircraft carrier also comes equipped with aircraft and helicopters that can outrun anything on the water.

Rejected code name:

Operation Sigmund (and the Sea Monsters)

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

Some of these Syd and Marty Kroft TV series are horrible and this is one. However, if you have a tremendous tolerance for kitsch and camp and "wackiness" and a cast-iron stomach, I recommend it assisted by some primo weed or drugs of some sort (I don't recommend the use of primo weed or drugs of any sort. Nope. Never. Don't touch them myself, instead using imagination and weird art and literature, which produces much the same effect without the side effects. On the other hand, whatever the authorities who ban this stuff are on, you should get some. It's Super-Primo Shiat. They really can't seem to keep a grip on reality.)

If you are too chicken to do drugs while watching these shows, I suggest you get a fit of the giggles from overwork or possibly watching even better shows, and then watch a late night marathon of Syd and Marty Kroft krapfest, starting with some of the better stuff and working your way to the purely insane, what-the-Hell-were-they-thinking? stuff.

I would like to know how to enlist my country in the Navy. I think it would be a good joke. Did you know that the Red Ensign that Canada used as a flag until 1967 is actually the ensign of the British Navy?

For its first hundred years, Canada was unofficially a royal navy ship or something.

Presumably it is registered in Liberia. They don't call us the Phoenecians of the North for nothing, but then again, who calls us the Phoenicians of the North any way? Name names.

Of course the squids would be impressed their ability to fish something out of the water with a helicopter.

Had it been USMC helicopters the results would have been six dead drug smugglers, no weed recovered, and a large portion of the ops budget used to order pizza at 2 am.

my heart would be beating through my chest if i thought i was about to spend the rest of my life in a hell hole prison.
 
2012-06-21 01:20:15 PM  
My guess is they just blundered into them and the drug runners panicked and dropped their stuff. I doubt the carrier cared what they were doing until they started dropping the stuff in the water. The commander probably wished they'd just kept going so he didn't have to stop his exercise and pick up after them.

No pursuit by an aircraft carrier is "all of a sudden".

Besides, the carrier itself doesn't "pursue". That's the point of all the flying things aboard the carrier.
