PERSIAN GULF - On the USS George HW Bush, United States military personnel have gone on general strike. Picket signs were seen as navy airmen locked hands around their aircraft.
"1, 2, 3, 4, better pay for better war; 5, 6, 7, 8, management we really hate!"
The confrontation came after President Barack Obama authorized the strikes in support of American allies in the middle-east.
"Whenever the commander-in-chief gives an order, we execute it with due diligence." said Lt. Commander John Avery. "Management has abused us for too long. They yell at us and make us wake up really, really early. I mean, what is this, the military?"
Republican leadership has been critical of the move. Speaker John Boehner has vowed to pass legislation making the military a 'right-to-work' organization. Sources say Israeli scabs are being brought in to replace the personnel.
