War games. We're preparing for Iran. We could even stage another Gulf of Tonkin type incident to kickstart the next war if we wanted to.

I can't believe this is making news in the press. There's no naval buildup of U.S. warships in the Gulf.

USS Eisenhower (CVN-69) battle group just relieved USS Enterprise (CVN-65) during late November as part of the routine deployment schedule.

The Enterprise Strike Group is already back at her home port of Norfolk VA and half the crew is already on leave for the holidays enjoying some well earned R&R.

/been there, done that, still have the T-shirt.

The aircraft carrier John C. Stennis and its strike group are preparing to leave for the Persian Gulf as soon as the first week of January if ordered to do so, Pentagon sources say.

Correction: There's no naval buildup of U.S. warships in the Gulf.........YET....

Stennis group could leave early for gulf deployment
