TARGET: Mexican Drug Cartels?  Two US Aircraft Carriers off Pacific Coast, one off Atlantic Coast of Mexico
5 Comments

After the intentional ambush and slaughter of 9 American women and children, Mexican Drug Cartels may be in the cross-hairs of the United States Military.   

As of December 1, two Aircraft Carriers are off the Pacific Coast of Mexico, a third Aircraft Carrier is off the Atlantic Coast.

According to sources in the region, the USS Nimitz and USS Roosevelt are off Mexico's Pacific Coast.   

Nimitz:

Roosevelt:

In addition,the USS Truman is off Mexico's Atlantic Coast.

Truman:

 

Moreover, the USNS Yukon, a replenishment ship, is also off Mexico's coast, west of the Mexican Baja peninsula.

 

Sources are also reporting 37 "Reaper" and "Predator" drones are flying high in Mexico. Interesting timing considering Donald Trump
designated the cartels as foreign terrorist organizations allowing the Treasury to freeze their assets.

 

ALPHA STRIKE?

Alpha strike is a term used by the United States Navy to denote a large air attack by an aircraft carrier air wing, first coined during the Vietnam War. It is the Navy's version of the more widely used term "strike package".

An Alpha strike is typically a large strike representing a "deck load" of aircraft, i.e.,the number of aircraft that can be brought to the flight deck, armed and launched against a high-value target. This will generally amount to about half of the aircraft aboard and will comprise aircraft from all squadrons on board and are also referred to as airwing-size strikes. The other half will normally have been recently recovered aircraft, and will be parked and prepared for their next mission on the hangar deck below the flight deck.

During an Alpha strike the carrier will remain into the wind and at General Quarters with a "ready deck" to recover any aircraft returning to the ship with battle damage. During the Vietnam War an Alpha strike also meant that the target of a strike was specifically taken from a target list maintained by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as such required JCS authorization.

The alternate form of carrier operations are "cyclic operations" during which a carrier will launch and recover aircraft (a launch and recovery is a complete cycle) on a prescribed schedule.

Several factors will contribute to the length of a cycle depending on the type of aircraft, the time and distance to the target, and the mission. With virtually all fast moving, jet aircraft aboard, carriers during the Vietnam War would launch and recover every 90 minutes and complete 9 cycles daily over typically a 12- to 13-hour period. These carriers were generally assigned to Yankee Station located about a 100 miles from the target area.

When a carrier stood down after flight quarters another carrier would commence flight operations. Typically three and on rare occasions four carriers operated on Yankee Station and provided continuous fleet air operations around the clock. A carrier would typically be on the line for a "line period" of 30 to 35 days, and then leave the line for 6 to 8 days of rest and recreation. A deployment to the Western Pacific usually amounted to six line periods and typically lasted about 10 1/2 months including transit from and to the continental United States.

During the peak of the war a carrier typically launched 9 to 13 thousand sorties. If a sortie may be used as a measure of activity, the periods from 1966 to early 1968 and 1970 to 1973 probably amounted to the most intensive level of combat flying in the history of naval warfare.

Sometimes some very large air raids were staged by coordinating aircraft from three US Navy carriers in the Gulf of Tonkin and the US Air Force flying from airfields in Thailand. This could amount to 90 to 100 Navy aircraft and a similar number from the Air Force. During these very large raids either the Navy or the Air Force would strike first and the other service would re-strike the target 15 minutes later.

The planning for these strikes was extensive, and typically a strike would remain over target no longer than two minutes in an effort to minimize losses in what was also the most intensive air defense system composed of fighters, anti-aircraft guns, and missiles ever encountered.

The Mexican drug cartels may be in for a visit from the United States.  Pieces seem to be moving into position.  Big pieces!

    Trump and his Military Industrial buddies going to invade our neighbor. That ought to go over well with the International community.

    The drug cartels present a clear and present danger to the security of the United States.

    Now where have I read that before? Tom Clancy's novel Clear and Present Danger

    A prelude to a regime change in Nicaragua? Venezuela?. We have already done those things in Bolivia.

    In my opinion, the Americans killed in Mexico was no accident. They were somehow connected with the drug cartels.
