Navy Matters Blog has a must read on the Tomahawk strike.
Read Navy Matters Blog write up on the Tomahawk strike here.
When did the Surface Navy in the form of Burke Class Destroyers become the go to entity for punitive strikes for the White House/Pentagon?
Riddle me this.
When was the last time that we saw airstrikes being conducted for the purpose of "sending a message"? I'm not sure but I think it goes back to the early 90's if not before.
No one asks where are the carriers....now they ask where are the Burke's!
With little notice the US Navy's surface fleet has become the instrument of "sending a message".
