On 9 April 2021 the Turkish government stated that it had received notification from the U.S. that two warships would enter the Black Sea on 14-15 April. NTV reported that Roosevelt would be one of the ships while USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) would be the other.
Also in the Black Sea right now are units of the Russian Navy performing live fire drills:
In live fire drills, warships deploy weapons from various platforms into restricted areas where specific targets are positioned.
The problem is missiles and torpedoes have a nasty tendency to malfunction from time to time, such as acquiring other radar or sonar contacts that might be close by, and diverting their trajectory. Seen that happen more than a few times.
Contacts such as Roosevelt or Donald Cook.
Some 35 years ago, two US Navy warships had a “run-in” with Russian Navy in the Black Sea in disputed territorial waters (https://wydaily.com/local-history/2021/03/24/our-historic-home-the-ramming-of-uss-yorktown-cg-48/).
At about 5 PM ET on April 14, the US Navy notified the Turkish government Roosevelt and Donald Cook would not transit into the Black Sea (https://wtvbam.com/2021/04/14/u-s-cancels-warships-deployment-to-black-sea-turkish-diplomatic-sources/).
Sounds like a grown-up finally got through to the Sock Puppet’s handlers.
This Administration is about as incompetent as it comes.
