Newest Navy Ship To Be Named, USS Time Limited, Scope Limited Military Action

Actually, it will be the USS Tripoli.

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced today the selection of USS Tripoli as the name for the Navy’s next large-deck amphibious assault ship (LHA 7).

The USS Tripoli will be the third ship to bear the name Tripoli. The name commemorates the capture of Derna in 1805 by a small force of U.S. Marines and approximately 370 soldiers from 11 other nationalities. The battle, later memorialized in the Marines’ Hymn with the line “to the shores of Tripoli”, brought about a successful conclusion to the combined operations of the First Barbary War. The first USS Tripoli, an escort carrier, fought in the battle of the Atlantic during World War II. The second, an amphibious assault ship, earned nine battle stars, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, and a Navy Unit Commendation for service in Vietnam.

“USS Tripoli and the proud heritage the name represents will be an inspiration for generations of sailors and Marines who serve aboard and those who come in contact with her, reminding all the freedoms our Navy protects are as vital today as they were centuries ago,” Mabus said.

All true but after the USNS Cesar Chavez, The USS John Murtha and The USS Gabriele Giffords, color me....skeptical that there's not a little bit of political ball spiking going on here.

H/t to @USS_Fallujah, a Twitter feed dedicated to getting the Navy to name a ship after one of the US Marine Corps greatest battles.

A great cause but it's not going to happen with Obama in the White House.

Let's don't forget our newest nuclear submarine, the USS Jimmy Carter.

Goddamn. If I was in the navy and I got assigned to that, I'd have to seriously consider blowing my brains out.

Well, maybe not. But I'd much prefer an assignment to USS Cowardly Dicksucker.

I imagine that there's a serious "Boy Named Sue" factor to the crew of the USS Peanut.....

Yes. The guys who man that sub have a language all to themselves about what a filthy effeminate bastard Jimmy Carter was. I hope that never changes.

130 Won't the Mohammedans get a little piqued about that?

That's almost as anti muslim as Crusader or Knights Templar.

131 I have to add this.

The guys who are actually on the USS Jimmy Carter can't comment here.

They can't do it.

They're just the men and women DOING THE GODDAMN job.

If any of your are reading this, GOD BLESS YOU.

132 an assignment to USS Cowardly Dicksucker.

That would be Adm Elmo Zumwalt.

Mr. PC hisself.

Maybe it was his SanFran upbringing but his uniform changes and the other stuff just turned a lot of salts into landlubbers. You can't buy experience.

Posted by: Bitter clinger and all that at May 04, 2012 09:33 PM (CP+yl)

133 I think the favorite is Bodemeister at 5-1.

I don't know or really give a damn about horse racing so I could be wrong.

If I owned a horse I'd call it Bootylicious. Just because.

137 The USS Micheal Mann is next. Probably Ishtar in time for the Great Green Fleet debacle that's coming in a few years.
