US moving another Strike Group to Europe

Free West Media | October 11, 2022

This is not a sign of de-escalation: the US is sending one of its most modern aircraft carriers, the USS Gerald R Ford, to Europe. It is the US Navy’s newest class of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier (CVN 78), departing on its first major deployment.

The 13 billion euro carrier was only put into service in 2017, is 337 meters long and has a crew of 4 500, 90 fighter jets and, presumably, nuclear weapons on board. The Strike Group includes 17 ships and one submarine.

The USS Gerald R Ford, accompanied by several guided missile cruisers, submarines and supply ships, should be operating in the North Sea in just a few days, joining the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Kearsage. This would give the US Navy a massive concentration of troops in northern Europe – and the air support of the most modern stealth fighter jets.

The Strike Group will be deployed alongside NATO forces. The US aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman is still stationed in the Mediterranean.

  1. “the US is sending one of its most modern aircraft carriers, the USS Gerald R Ford, to Europe”.

    “The Strike Group will be deployed alongside NATO forces. The US aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman is still stationed in the Mediterranean.”

    “The 13 billion euro carrier was only put into service in 2017, is 337 meters long and has a crew of 4 500, 90 fighter jets and, presumably, nuclear weapons on board. The Strike Group includes 17 ships and one submarine”.

    Anyone would think that WWIII is all set to go. Is there NOTHING that will stop the Military Industrial Complex?
    I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but, Vlad Putin has warned that he is not bluffing, if it comes down to “Total War”

    That 337 meter long Aircraft Carrier, 90 fighter jets, and support 17 ships and a submarine, would make the perfect target, for a Russian A-BOMB…..

    • I agree, except that any nuclear incident in the north Sea will destroy my country. Unfortunately. We put the knife at the throat of Russia and deserve no less.

      All our clothes are mold. I bought something new at the start of this year (after the shops finally opened) and it has affected all my clothes, towels, sheets and so on. Even worse is that I can’t go to the shop to buy new ones because that is where the problem came from.

      We have gone mad without any mitigation and I really wonder what more disasters will unfold in front of us.

          • Yes, it is damp. (This is a bit beyond my ordinary English vocabulary ;))

          • I have had a half year to ponder and investigate what this can be. I found that yeast is a fungus that can multiply in 80 minutes by 40° Celsius. I guess that this mould/damp/whatever is also a fungus. The washing machine has a program that lasts 2:40 hours which are 160 minutes, or 2 times 80 minutes, at a temperature of 40° C. This means that I can use the washing machine as a PCR-test with two cycles to test my fabrics on fungus.

            But unfortunately I have to wash my fabrics whether I want to test them or not. And the outcome is always a positive.

            As a last resort I have tried second hand clothes but the outcome is similar.

            I had some old clothes that I had not yet thrown away and that are still reasonably clean but very worn out.

            So the big question for me is the level at which it has gone wrong. I don’t think that it are the shops because it is the same for every shop that I have tried. It could have been caused after either the production of the clothes, the fabrics, the threads or the cotton, or perhaps all off them.

            Perhaps I could buy fabrics and wool and educate myself on sewing and knitting but I havent tried this yet. Another idea is to clean with bleach and then to repaint my clothes.

            Someone told me that I was the first to broach this topic. The next time I saw him I could smell him as well…

            • Britain is COLD and DAMP……In Australia, we put our clothes out in the sun, and they are dry in 15/30 minutes.
              Mold + Sunshine + 25 minutes, = Dry clothes…….Time for a nice cold beer……too easy!

            • I live in a sunny and arid environment and don’t speak from experience, however, an ounce or two of vinegar added to the wash may be a solution for mildew.
