We’re getting news now that a Russian warship has entered the Eastern Mediterranean, heading towards the two U.S. Navy destroyers involved in those Tomahawk launches last night… we understand the Russian frigate from the Black Sea has gone through the Bosphorus Strait and is headed towards the U.S. warships from those attacks last night.

Sigh...you guys fall for everything.

This ship was not "taking action against the US".

It had been originally assigned to the Mediterranean last year and had removed to the Black Sea to take part in some exercises.

It was on its way back as per its schedule...that had been set WEEKS before Trump's action.

Warmongering scares to get ratings and clicks.

Just like Tomorrow Never Dies.

Well here is some genuine ship movement, albeit not in the right direction.

On April 8, NSA McMaster said the USS Carl Vinson was being re-routed from Singapore to the Sea of Japan as a "prudent move" given the escalating tension with North Korea

http://abc7ny.com/news/nsa-mcmaster-pru ... a/1853916/

The only problem: the ships were actually headed in the opposite direction towards Indonesia.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/18/worl ... inson.html

In Trump terms, that's close, since they're still in the ocean somewhere in Asia, but in real world terms, they were 3500 miles away from North Korea.

The Vinson is still in the middle of the Celebes Sea. They lost an F/A-18 today. The pilot ejected safely.
