Navy To The Black Sea

The US seems to be trying to provoke…..we have sent a carrier group to the East China Sea and now we have sent the US Navy into the Black Sea….

For what purpose?

The US Navy has three warships operating in the Black Sea, a region where NATO is looking to increase its naval presence.

The USS Porter, a guided-missile destroyer, entered the waters on Thursday, joining two US ships that were already there. The USS Donald Cook, another guided-missile destroyer, and the oiler USNS Laramie transited into the Black Sea on Sunday.

Russia noticed the US warships operating near its coast and deployed a mobile coastal defense anti-ship system in Crimea. The Russian military said it tracked the USS Donald Cook as it entered the Black Sea.

Russia hawks and NATO are hoping the US keeps up the military activity in the Black Sea this year.

While the US and Russia reached an agreement on extending New START, the vital nuclear treaty, the Biden administration is maintaining a hostile stance towards Moscow, and more US-NATO military cooperation is expected.

Again why is the US presence necessary?

Are we there to protect or provoke?

A situation that I shall watch with interest.

  1. You shouldn’t be surprised, you knew Biden was a hawk. I am hearing that the new administration is finding reasons for us to stay in Afghanistan too.

  2. Biden is showing his colours with some early chest-beating. America could not defeat the Taliban. Does it honestly think it can take on Russia in the Black Sea? Pointless money-wasting.
    Best wishes, Pete.
