NUCLEAR-POWERED GRINGO ‘SUPERCARRIER’ IS ANCHORED NEAR ESQUIMALT HARBOUR: USS Ronald Reagan’s missiles and drones used in Iraq, Afghanistan

MILITARY MADNESS

BAD NEWS FOR CANADA

The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) is a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered ‘supercarrier’, based in San Diego California, and is presently ‘anchored in the waters approaching Esquimalt Harbour,’ according to a ‘correction’ printed on page A2 of the monopoly daily Victoria Times Colonist War Party newspaper.

‘A story on page A3 yesterday incorrectly stated it docked at Ogden Point,’ said the tiny article, which is found in the upper left hand corner of the Friday, June 11, 2010 number.

Ogden Point is situated near one of the most densely populated parts of Victoria, the capital city of the province of British Columbia.

Esquimalt is a neighbouring municipality where the Pacific Fleet of the Canadian Forces (formerly known as the Royal Canadian Navy) is celebrating something or other this year. 

The visit of this dangerous behemoth is an unpopular and unwarranted provocation to the silent majority of peaceful Canadian residents in Victoria who do not think it is a good idea at all to have 6,000 sailors from 6 different countries marauding around town looking for bars, whores and hard dope.

Nor do we think it serves the interest of  the Canadian people or Canadian sovereignty to allow our peaceful waters to be used to berth dangerous nuclear-powered and potentially nuclear-armed vessels.

Whether the nuke ship has nuclear arms on board is unknown, as the US Navy has a long-standing and obnoxious policy of neither denying nor confirming whether nuclear arms are on board such nuclear ships.

Missiles and pilotless drones have been shot from this nuclear ship in the unjust, unethical, futile and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The nuke ship, one of many that have visited Victoria in contravention of a provincial government motion that declared all of B. C. waters a nuclear-free zone, is not welcome by the Concerned Citizens’ Coalition.

It should not be welcomed by the City of Victoria and the fact that the socialist Mayor and Council is allowing our port facilities to be used in this manner is a type of shameful and alarming terrorism against the citizens of Victoria.
