Operation Uphold Democracy and the bastardization of a US Carrier...

Pic is from the Loadout Room and the story is here.

Opinions will vary about that operation and what you see in the above pic.  From my chair?  All I see is nasty.  All I see is the bastardization of a carrier.  I see the total misuse of an expensive asset to justify a flimsy mission based on a clumsy rationale.

What you're seeing is fraud, waste and abuse wrapped in an American flag sailing to save a country from what exactly?

The military replaced (overthrew..conducted a coup) a jacked up, mentally ill leader?  Why would we want to get in the middle of that?

I'd really love to hear your opinions on this operation.  In some ways I have to wonder if this didn't set the template for future actions in the middle east to "uphold democracy"....
