In another move proving his commitment to finish off ISIS and other terrorist groups President Donald Trump has sent the powerful aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and its strike group into the Persian Gulf. The carrier is accompanied by a guided missile cruiser and four destroyers.
This force provides a great deal of additional fire power to strike at ISIS in both Iraq and Syria. The Nimitz strike force is commanded by Rear Admiral Bill Byrne who says that for his force it is “game on” He said his pilots and crews are ready for action and they launched their first strike on July 31st. It will be the first of many designed not only to destroy terrorists, but also to reassure our allies of the commitment of the United States to victory in the Middle East.
