Global SITREP B9-17: All War Is Deception

CVN-70 USS Carl Vinson in the Indian Ocean on 15 April 2017

19 April 2017: The most important lesson that should have been learned from this past weekend, and in going forward from here, is that all war is deception.

So with the news released earlier today that the USS Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group One (CSG-1) was nowhere near the Korean peninsula in the Sea of Japan last weekend, the global corporate media's (New York Times leading the pack) near instantaneous negative reaction, as well as that of the lefty blogosphere, was entirely predictable. It was unbridled hostility run amok and barely masked by their favorite sobriquets, like "fake news," "false narrative," and "Trump's lie." In a truly tense environment, the negative media reaction was probably the most appropriate form of comic relief that could have occurred at this juncture.

For the record what occurred this past weekend is known as Operational Deception, or OPDEC. The North Koreans, as well as the Russians and Chinese general staffs all believed, as did the media and blogosphere, that CSG-1 was just down range from a potential North Korean missile barrage to spark World War III. The mere threat of an American Carrier Strike Group close enough to reach out and touch Kim Jong Badhaircut where it hurts was all it took to keep his nuclear test from happening. 

The big unmentioned story here is that neither the Russians or the Chinese were capable of informing the North Koreans that our sea power was at least 3,000 miles away. They, true superpower wannabes, were as blind as a bat, and were probably furiously trying to figure out how an American nuclear-armed naval armada such as this was managing to be such an effective electromagnetic hole in the Western Pacific Ocean. It had to be nightmare of a real-time intelligence failure for the Russian and Chinese navies! I mean they were in the Sea of Japan just a couple of weeks ago for a major exercise with the South Korean and Japanese navies called Operation Foal Eagle 2017. Nobody saw the US carrier strike group leave the area?

I think the fact-of-the-matter is that CSG-1 was stationed near Singapore intentionally, just in case a rapid dash to either the Sea of Japan or the Arabian Sea became necessary in the event another al-Assad chemical warfare episode or a North Korean nuclear event/ICBM launch. Looking at a map of the Eastern Hemisphere this makes sense to this guy.

So, following a quick exercise with our mates Down Under, really good prep for a Korean deployment by the way, it appears that CSG-1 will be re-deploying from the Indian Ocean up to the Sea of Japan after all. Word also came today of a 30-day extension of CSG-1's WESTPAC  mission, and that speaks volumes. So the vast and very powerful armada that the Commander-In-Chief spoke of last week is going to sail off the Korean coast once again. Prudent actions, all of them.

"All war is deception". Many people are still buying the lie that Saddam Hussein didn't have weapons. I wonder that if we had gone in before crossing all the U.N. red tape....if the middle east would be any different. I know there's a lot of deception in war, but that one has got to be one of the top ones

hartdawg,

Iraqi WMD was and still is the second greatest modern deception in war.

The first greatest is Islam.

Sean,

BINGO! I kinda picked up that report from your very simple posting prior to 19 April 2017 report. Just proves what my grandfather always told us during World War 2: "Never broadcast or prewarn your enemies of your next move or your intentions. Keep them guessing and you will keep your head!".

All things work to the good for those who are called by God.

Of course the prophetic aspect to the Korean situation is the establishment of the 70th Week's "kings of the East" who will ultimately wage war upon the Antichrist. Daniel 11:40-45.

All this posturing for war. The RISK board is being set up til the Lamb that was slain who was found worthy to break the seal.
Oh what a Blessed Hope the Christian has!
