Navy super carrier takes center stage in war games

By William Cole
Advertiser Military Writer

AT SEA ON THE USS JOHN C. STENNIS Jet fighters roaring off the deck of this super carrier 100 miles west of O'ahu are part of daily flight operations.

Senior Chief Petty Officer Oscar Usman, of Pahala, Hawai'i, strums a tune on his 'ukulele during a break on the hangar deck of the USS John C. Stennis. The super carrier is the command ship for RIMPAC '04.

It's a ballet of airplanes and people. Yellow-shirted plane directors send them off and guide them out of the way once they return, so another jet can land less than 60 seconds later.

The Stennis is the centerpiece of Rim of the Pacific 2004 war games beginning tomorrow and involving 15 nations, more than 40 ships, seven submarines, 100 aircraft and almost 18,000 military personnel.
Now we've got the Stennis 100 West of Hawaii..

The article says all in the Pacific right off the coast.. However to the contrary the Truman for example is in the Morocco Area.. Which is on the other side of the world..
And they will gather off China.

I doubt it.. 2 of those carriers will be heading home soon..

Plus you fail to see the point of Again.. Operation Summer Pulse which is a multinational force.. Obviously those nations will have some problems with showing up on China.. I'm willing to bet that they won't even gather..

An LA Times editorial (which this is) is not a reliable source of news.

The same article that says that Congress doesn't know this is going to happen, because the author guesses, assumes, and doubts?

Since when did I say anything about any of the other sources you cited? My contention is with the article you posted originally. Since you posted it with no comment of your own, I was under the impression that we were talking about that mess.

As for the maneuvers:

Whoop de do. We're going to cruise a bunch of CSGs close to China. China's going to bristle, they might even make some noise on the world news for a bit, then it'll be politics as normal again. We've done stuff like this plenty of times in the past, just not on this scale. It's not as if there's some magic number that will spark a war, unless we invade China.

If we invade, we're all dead.

This is non-news.
