Radiation Causes More U.S. Fleet Departures

March 21st, 2011 3:28pm CST

As we noted last week, major withdrawals ordered the U.S. 7th Fleet further away from Japan in light of elevated radiation detections.

Just in from Fox:

"Two US Navy ships pulled out of the base at Yokohama due to fears over rising radiation"

USS George Washington
"The USS George Washington and the USS Lassen left the base, which is located south of Tokyo, as a precautionary measure to ensure a state of readiness in the long term for the defense of Japan, The US Navy said in a statement."

The defense of Japan? If you think these assets are positioned for any other purpose than rapid readiness to combat North Korea's potential aggression, you are kidding yourself. We do not radically alter the locations of these units lightly.
