US Carriers conduct "dual ops"...I call them battle drills...

via USNI News.
The U.S. Navy has begun dual-carrier operations with the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) in the Sea of Japan, a service official told USNI News on Wednesday.

It will be first time two U.S. carriers have operated in tandem off the Korean Peninsula since the 1990s and follows several recent North Korean missile tests.

“Operating two carrier strike groups in the Western Pacific provides unique training opportunities for our forces and provides combatant commanders with significant operational flexibility should these forces be called upon in response to regional situations,” Lt. Loren Terry told USNI News on Wednesday.
“The presence of two carriers is part of a regularly scheduled rotation of assets in the region and is not in response to any political or world events. This unique capability is one of many ways the U.S. Navy promotes security, stability and prosperity throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific.”
Wow.  That LT is spouting a whole bunch of bullshit.  Obviously an Academy grad!

They call it dual carrier operations...a unique training opportunity...regularly scheduled rotation??????

I call it a fucking battle drill. 

Dual carrier ops is something that hasn't been talked about for the future fight. This is obviously something different and the rotation talk is pure fantasy.  Whatever this is, it isn't normal procedure and is usually seen before the start of hostilities.

One other thing.  Remember that the 31st MEU just set sail a few days ago. If we're gonna see some type of fight in N. Korea then the pieces are sliding into place.
