First of all, nobody military or familiar with the Middle East calls that body of water the "Persian Gulf". It's the Arabian Gulf. Secondly, the USS Kearsarge has not been in the Gulf since May of 2011, when she returned to port in Norfolk. [/quote] I do have to disagree with one of your points. I was in the navy for 8 years, and everyone I met or talked to called it the Persian gulf or just the gulf. And Bahrain is a POS port of call. Just saying. [/quote] That's OK, but maybe things have changed since you were in. It's Arabian Gulf to us now, and for obvious reasons. Anyway, doesn't change the fact that this story is poorly done bullshit. They could have at least used the name of a real admiral, and referred to a ship that was actually in the Gulf! [/quote] Must have changed between 06 and now. Never did like all the changes. Very true points about the article. The sad thing is, when I was in the Navy, I NEVER got my absentee ballot on time to vote. Then again, I was registered in my home state of New York. Why would they want a military person to have a say in their home state? I agree that the story was poorly done. The fact that it is a "faux news and humor" site (as listed in its about page) means that this article was directed to cause a lot of pain to those in uniform (and those who care about them) that specifically do not support O'crap-head. The fact that they focused on the supporters of Rotney, to crank up the anger doesn't say much for the site, in my eyes. [/quote]
Nothing shocking here....
