As the civil war in Libya intensifies, and more and more people are being killed, will the U.S. send in military forces to quell the violence? There are reports that Muammar Al-Gaddifi possesses chemical weapons and may use them against the opposition forces. This could turn into an atrocious bloodbath. The U.S. Sixth Fleet’s area of operations include the Mediterranean.
U.S. Navy fleets:
United States Second Fleet (HQ Norfolk, Virginia) – North Atlantic
United States Third Fleet (HQ San Diego, California) – East Pacific
United States Fourth Fleet (HQ Mayport, Florida) – South Atlantic
United States Fifth Fleet (HQ Manama, Bahrain) – Middle East
United States Sixth Fleet (HQ Gaeta, Italy) – Europe
United States Seventh Fleet (HQ Yokosuka, Japan) – West Pacific
United States Tenth Fleet (HQ Fort Meade, Maryland) – Reactivated as Fleet Cyber Command. Formerly anti submarine warfare coordinating organization.
The aircraft carrier U.S.S. Enterprise is in the Gulf of Aden just south of the Red Sea. It is within striking distance of Libya.
