Carrier strike group (CSG) is an operational formation of the United States Navy. It is centered on an aircraft carrier and a carrier air wing (CVW) of 65 to 70 aircrafts. It’s composed of roughly 7,500 personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, a destroyer squadron of at least two destroyers and/or frigates. A carrier strike group also, on occasion, includes submarines, attached logistics ships and a supply ship. Carrier strike groups comprise a principal element of U.S. power projection over the world’s oceans.

    As a US citizen who has worked with former veteran US SOF at a private security contracting firm (not mercenaries at some PMC, I am referring to a company I cannot name because of Non-Disclosure Agreements I contractually signed, but we worked mainly in Mexico but had a group not far from SDF in N.E Syria as well as smaller, more covert units in Lebanon to be ready to assist if the Hez truly makes a stupid, dangerous, and eventually, lethal mistake for it’s Quds Force mentors and their assets/forces. I just wanted to share something VERY IMPORTANT…My friends in these highly trained fmr Tier 1 unit operators-turned-contractors for protective details in Lebanon have already been shot at by Shi’ite militias (obviously proxy groups, stupidly transparent when it comes to the IRGC’s involvement in their attacks) and I wish I could warn the IRGC command authority directly (as Trump is insane when he gets angry and I don’t support his decisions as most of us Americans feel the same way) that if they allow Quds’ FWD Ground operations officers and Hez shooters to confront our guys, they WILL NOT WIN. I don’t mean because the IDF (or “Zionist army of pigs” etc blah blah as most of Iran refers to them) is there also to fight alongside us quite yet, but it would be catastrophic if Hezbollah tries a false flag bomb attack OR tries to shoot it out w/ my friends. I hope someone realizes Iran has MORE THAN ENOUGH SUPPORT WITH SYRIA+RUSSIAN CAS (CLOSE AIR SUPPORT, ALONG WITH THEIR OWN SOF AND GRU OPERATIVES ON-SITE) AND DOES NOT ACT STUPIDLY OUT OF PRIDE OR GREED ETC AND TRIES TO GET FORCEFUL AGAINST THE UNITED STATES BEST TRAINED (AND HIGHLY COMBAT WISENED AND EXPERIENCED OPERATORS IN THESE UNITS) ELEMENTS ON THE GROUND IN THAT REGION. IT’S NOT WORTH IRANIAN BLOOD OR OURS….TRY USING A TELEPHONE, BECAUSE I PROMISE…IF AN IRANIAN SOLDIER READS THIS, HE BETTER UNDERSTAND WE WILL SHOOT DOWN RUSSIAN AND SYRIAN AND ANY OTHER AIRCRAFT DROPPING CLUSTER BOMBS/BARREL BOMBS/ETC AT ALMOST RANDOM MERELY BECAUSE OF SH-TTY INTELLIGENCE THEY THINK IS STABLE, WHICH IRONICALLY WILL DESTABILIZE ANY, AND I MEAN A-N-Y PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE IN A CONFLICT RIDDEN AREA LIKE THIS PART OF LEBANON. THE IRGC HAS NO IDEA HOW MANY FRIENDS IN ISRAEL AND IRAQ WE HAVE WORKING FOR US, ESPECIALLY THOSE CLOSE TO N. IRAQ THAT IRAN THINKS ARE THEIR ASSETS WHEN IN REALITY THEY WERE TURNED YEARS AGO TO OUR SIDE BECAUSE THEY ARE TIRED OF IRAN’S CONSTANT ATTEMPTS AT TAKING OVER AREAS THAT AREN’T THEIRS….WE AMERICANS CAN BE SHORT-TEMPERED, GREEDY, SELFISH JERKS…BUT THE QUDS FORCE? THEY BLOW UP MARKETS TO MERELY MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT THEIR INTENTIONS. THEY EVEN STICK TROOPS IN VENEZUELA AND THINK MY COMPANY DON’T KNOW WHEN IN REALITY HALF THEIR COMMANDERS ARE LITERALLY IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF EX-DELTA FORCE SNIPER TEAMS 24 HOURS A DAY. I HOPE THE IRGC PULLS BACK THIS TIME…IT’S TIME TO NOT BE THE STEREOTYPICAL “TOUGH GUY-PERSIAN ALPHA MALE ACT”, BELIEVE ME….THEY WOULD LOSE,, AND LOSE MORE THAN THEY THINK
