Don t you think that is just the way the leaders of the nations want it? Discredit the press, alternative facts, propaganda wrapped as news and news that is only opinion of news.

Pompeo calls it an act of war and identifies Iranian launch sites.
WASHINGTON — The command in charge of U.S. military logistics worldwide on Tuesday triggered one the largest surges of its aging sealift ships in decades, a critical test of the country’s ability to move heavy equipment overseas in the event of a major conflict.

U.S. Transportation Command ordered a so-called turbo activation of 28 ships from a fleet of logistics ships spread across Military Sealift Command, the Department of Transportation and the Maritime Administration. The activation, the largest of its kind since Operation Iraqi Freedom, rapidly transitions ships from a semi-dormant, reduced operating status manned by a skeleton crew to a fully crewed ship ready to sail within five days.

In the event of a major conflict with China or Russia, the sealift fleet would need to carry up to 90 percent of U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps equipment to the fight — logistical activity that is key to the United States’ deterrence strategy. After all, Russia and China don’t have to fear the U.S. military if it can’t get to the fight.


‘You’re on your own’: US sealift can’t count on Navy escorts in the next big war
In a major war, the U.S. Navy would likely have its hands full with combat operations, forcing the nation's civilian mariners to confront the possibility of transporting weapons of war unescorted in contested waters.

“These exercises typically involve only a few ships but this event targets 28 vessels for activation to provide a better assessment of the readiness of U.S. sealift forces than can be accomplished with fewer activations,” a TRANSCOM release said. “This scale will also stress the underlying support network involved in maintaining, manning and operating the nation’s ready sealift forces.”

TRANSCOM spokesman, Navy Capt. Kevin Stephens, said in an email that the exercise was the largest turbo activation of its kind on record, though there have been larger activations for real-world operations.

The sealift fleet is composed of 26 Military Sealift Command pre-positioning ships, 46 ships in the Ready Reserve Force and 15 command-owned roll-on/roll-off surge force ships.

The U.S. military has been increasingly vocal about its logistics shortfalls. Last year, the Army warned Congress in a memo that the country was facing a slow-rolling crisis and the prospect of a collapse in the nation’s sealift capacity
