If you are going to write on naval affairs, and you title an article:US Navy pulls two aircraft carriers from Syria shores, you had better make sure it is correct.
As you may have guessed the two aircraft carriers are not both carriers. The facts: the USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier and the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group. . .What would you expect from the Russian International News Agency, RIA Novosti? In 2005, RIA Novosti established RT (originally Russia Today.) And they could use an editor or two.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. But most of all, it was the age of two desserters. Well a deserter and a desserter. First, the deserter:
David Hemler, an American deserter living in Sweden for 28 years
In October 1984, a 21-year-old American Airman deserted and hitch-hiked from an Air Force base in Augsburg, Germany to Stockholm. He built himself a life in Sweden – never sharing his secret with anyone, while becoming one of the U.S. Air Force’s eight most wanted fugitives. Today, David A. Hemler, 49, comes forward in an exclusive interview with Dagens Nyheter (DN), Stockholm.
It’s been 28 yearssince David Hemler left the 6913th Electronic Security Squadron in Augsburg and found his way to Stockholm via Copenhagen.

What a weasel that deserter is! Could he not squirm some more? (Watch the video.) And the faux Euro thing, it’ll go over real big in Leavenworth. . .
