USS George HW Bush Enters Persian Gulf via Strait of Hormuz

“There are many changes taking place within the US Navy at the moment. They are adding new ships, while others are touring to other countries. Recently the USS George H.W. Bush, which is an aircraft carrier, entered the Persian Gulf via Strait of Hormuz. Where is the Strait of Hormuz and why is it important? Why is this move important to the US and US Navy in general? As the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) entered the Straight of Hormuz, a former of CIA, named Robert Baer predicted that there will be an Israel-Iran war by September of 2011. Why does Mr. Baer believe there will be a war in September? What does the USS George H.W. Bush have to do with it?


Mr. Baer states many issues for this, including a falling media empire in the UK, the global economic crisis, and by how many US aircrafts are located according to a new map published. The USS George H.W. Bush, is the first US aircraft carrier to enter Straight of Hormuz in months. Strait of Hormuz is a strategically waterway located the Gulf of Omen (north coast of Pakistan and Iran)and the Persia Gulf.

The US Navy currently only has two aircraft carriers located outside of US boarders. The USS George H.W. Bush and the USS Ronald Reagan, they are both located in the middle east, on opposite sides of the coast. The USS George H.W. Bush, is the newest aircraft carrier. What makes Mr. Baer a creditable source?

He’s not like other CIA members. He wrote a book called ‘Syriana’, which was turned into a major motion picture, starring Hollywood actor George Clooney. Mr. Clooney won an Oscar by playing a character based on Mr. Baer in the film. Mr. Baer has had a long career, including a stint in Iran in the 1990s.

What would Obama do if another war broke out? Would the United States be a part of this war? What would this mean for all the soldiers (in all branches of the US Military) that are supposed to come home from war starting in September?”

USS Enterprise Moves to Strait of Hormuz to Join USS Vinson

According to this Zero Hedge post, Stratfor is reporting that the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) has left the Red Sea to head to the Strait of Hormuz in order to support the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) already positioned in the Persian Gulf area.

This aircraft carrier move is to be anticipated, especially as the Obama administration has been making very public announcements about scaling back the U.S. role in the Libya operation to enforce the U.N. mandated no fly zone.

While operations in Libya are ongoing, those operations are more likely to be run from Europe and Mediterranean Sea air bases of coalition partners like Italy, France, or Turkey.

As tensions and protests increase in the Middle East and spread to Syria, Yemen and Bahrain, the movement of the USS Enterprise is probably a reaction to these developments.

The Strait of Hormuz is a strategically important point through which about 20% of the world’s oil supply is transported.
