USS Georgia (SSGN 729) became the first Ohio
-class submarine to operate in the Arabian Gulf during her current deployment. Here's a story from Fifth Fleet
about their port call in Bahrain, and here's a blog entry
by CAPT Brian McIlvaine (my old XO) describing the port visit.
Back during the Bush Administration, stories like this would have brought the "we're about to attack Iran" crowd
to screaming levels of hysterics. I wonder if any of them are now willing to admit, given that we never did attack Iran before President Bush left office, that they were wrong in thinking that President Bush was purely evil, and are maybe even willing to entertain the idea that he was actually a man who had the best interests of the country at heart, even if they disagree with him on how to achieve what was best for the country?
