Karl’s Carrier Watch

Karl’s Carrier Watch

Prognosticators watch things like electricity usage and carrier deployment – as baseline signals about what is happening on the world stage because things like this cannot be faked.

If electricity usage is shrinking, or not rising fast enough, neither is economic activity in that country or region; regardless of what the politicians are saying.

U.S. aircraft carrier deployment tells you, without any spin, where in the world the Pentagon is focused. Which is why, the news tidbit below from Fox News is so puzzling. It’s either very good news or very bad news, and I’m praying it’s not the latter.

From Fox News — For the next week, not only will there be no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier in the Middle East, but there will be no American aircraft carriers deployed at sea anywhere else in the world, despite a host of worldwide threats facing the United States.

Notice how the Fox reporter worked in the “host” of threats issue, signaling his puzzlement as well. The video interview on board with one of the carrier captains was even more revealing, the Fox reporter — of course, asked about the Middle East and the captain sloughed it off, answering instead, “We’re ready to respond there (Middle East) of course, but in China or Russia as well.”

I used to keep track of some little subtle signals that war was approaching — and only logged two or three strikes a year.

Beginning in 2001, this number went up to two or three per week. These days, it’s two or three per day.

    a technology shift and/or too many potential firecrackers going off on the world stage to commit to any particular one early??
    ME is not a place that needs the carriers. we have land bases close enough.
