Seen in West Seattle waters: USS John C. Stennis, heading out

Thanks to Guy for the sighting and Tracy for the ID (both via Facebook), and JayDee for the photo via e-mail: That’s the USS John C. Stennis, CVN-74, heading northbound in Puget Sound, past West Seattle, on the way to Southern California. The Kitsap Sun reports this seven-week trip will provide the Stennis crew and members of its strike group with training for an upcoming deployment to the Middle East.

    What waste of resources and lives our involvement in foreign affairs has become. Should turn her around and scrap the thing and give the money to less fortunate

    Sure, scrap it and retreat from foreign affairs. Of course, the last time the US stayed out of the world’s business, a little thing called WWII happened. If the United States and other powers had gotten involved early on, the Nazis wouldn’t have risen to power, and Japan wouldn’t have raped and killed it’s way across China and Southeast Asia. But sure, if a few unfortunate people can have a decent meal, that’s totally worth our nation’s, and the world’s, security.

    A decade now we have been involved in the middle east and plummeting this country in debt. They are going to self govern how we want them to? Ok.

    If you want to point a finger at a specific war, then do so. Otherwise your first blanket comment sounds like an argument for widespread disarmament.

Sorry, comment time is over.
