Woodstock helps to fan the flames in the Straits of Hormuz

Update on USS Pinckney, for which we reported recently that Woodstock rushed a fan under an "URGENT AND COMPELLING EMERGENCY REQUIREMENT". The Pinckney, we now learn, is part of the Navy's John C. Stennis Strike Group led by the aircraft carrier USS Stennis -- and therefore part of the US's cat-and-mouse game with Iran in the Straits of Hormuz which has been making headlines lately and which may be part of a build-up to war. The Stennis recently took part in the maneuvers to pass through the Straits. The "URGENT AND COMPELLING EMERGENCY REQUIREMENT" was apparently a requirement to join in the war-mongering.
