DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 19, 2017, 10:04 PM (IDT)
Donald Trump marked his first month as US President with two major military gambits in the Middle East, Asia and the South China Sea. Sunday, Feb. 19, the US Navy said that the Nimitz-class USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and strike group had begun patrols in the disputed waters of the South China Sea. The US Navy also expanded its presence in the Red Sea, especially around the Strait of Bab El-Mandeb with the large 11th Marine Expeditionary Combat Unit.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
