Naval fleet reactivated to confront Russia now operational as North Atlantic rivalry heats up

(Great Power War) As a “cost-cutting measure” during the Obama administration, the U.S. Navy decommissioned the Second Fleet, merging its activities and personnel into the new Fleet and Joint Operations organization of Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces.

Seven years later, during the Trump administration, the U.S. Navy reactivated the Second Fleet.



Naval Today reported:

As informed, Second Fleet will exercise operational and administrative authorities over assigned ships, aircraft and landing forces on the East Coast and northern Atlantic Ocean.

“Our National Defense Strategy makes clear that we’re back in an era of great power competition as the security environment continues to grow more challenging and complex,” then-Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said at the time.

“That’s why today, we’re standing up Second Fleet to address these changes, particularly in the north Atlantic,” he added.

The ‘changes’ he was talking about are increased threats from Russia.

Karl Marx and his Bolshevic-pedosodomites ruined Russia at the behest of the rothschilds.

The US is spread thin and Trump is correct to seek to remove us from the forever wars that drain resources but accomplish nothing. At the same time, our key power is naval. As long as our navy is supreme we can shut off the trade of opponents, especially export powers like China, and force them into economic penury by closing the trading lanes. The Pacific and Indian Oceans are most critical right now but the Atlantic is a key to American trade and power.
