The aircraft carrier, which boasts 8 fighter bomber squadrons and 8,000 sailors, airmen and Marines, sailed up to the Syrian coast yesterday during bad weather. The Eisenhower is joined by the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group which carries another 2,500 Marines.
"Facing Syria now are 10,000 US fighting men, 70 fighter-bombers and at least 17 warships, including the three Iwo Jima amphibious craft, a guided missile cruiser and 10 destroyers and frigates. Four of these vessels are armed with Aegis missile interceptors," reports DebkaFile. http://www.infowars.com/us-aircraft-carrier-arrives-off-syrian-coast/
