"ABOARD AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS HARRY S. TRUMAN IN THE IONIAN SEA – For the longest stretch in decades, the Mediterranean Sea has played host to the deafening roar of U.S. carrier aircraft launching into Europe."
"Since December, the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group, Carrier Air Wing 1 and its escorts have been operating in the Adriatic and Ionian seas launching 80 to 90 sorties a day as far north as Lithuania for a variety of missions with NATO-allied aircraft from Romania, France and Italy. Some fighters launched from Truman are training, while some are set to police NATO’s airspace and prevent Russian aircraft from violating those borders."
MISSIONS AS FAR NORTH AS LITHUANIA! MEANS WARPLANES FROM THE AMERICAN TRUMAN OR THE FRENCH DE GAULLE CARRYING ATOMIC WEAPONS ARE WITHIN RANGE OF HOSTILE TARGETS UKRAINE!
