With the current administration pushing massive defense spending cuts (by way of refusing to make the cuts in entitlements), America will soon lose its ranking as the largest, most powerful military in the world.  We'll fall second to China, then third to India, and soon we'll be pillow fighting with the rest of the pre-teens at the bottom-of-the-list-sleepover.  We won't be sending forces to help quell the Greek riots or any other humanitarian or security missions.  We'll be welcoming Chinese soldiers to our gulf coasts and other disaster prone areas.  How does that make you feel?

How does the thought of a Chinese soldier laying his bayonet next to your daughter's bed make you feel?
How does the vision of your wife stir frying the household pets for the "visiting" platoon sound?
How does the sound of "OOOOHHHHAAAAAAAA...." beginning the answer to even simple questions make you feel?
How does that ping pong paddle feel in your hands as your forced to compete for rations?

Probably makes you a little sick, doesn't it?  Well, you could always join the American Armed Forces and do something about it - or, do something about it as a private citizen, while you still have your Second Amendment rights.

Or you could go back to bed and snuggle yourself to sleep in your warm comforter.  Tell me, American slave, was it sewn in the USA?

I didn't think so.

I think they're saying they want to eat our seamen as a delicacy.

Baryogenesis: Cythraul: Bendal: Cythraul: If they have something that can get past a Phalanx CIWS, then they deserve to down a U.S. aircraft carrier.

Oh please; a ballistic missile at terminal speeds is so far outside a CIWS' reaction range that it would hit before the Phalanx even knew it was there. However, just firing a load of MRBM's shotgun style at a CVBG is nothing but desperation; you'd need more than a dozen fired at a time to have a chance of hitting anything, much less one particular ship moving at 30+ knots on an unpredictable course. Do these missiles have some kind of terminal homing guidance? That would help but it cuts down on the warhead size and buys the defenses time to acquire and shoot it down as well.

Of course, they could be putting 10kT warheads on those MRBM's and figuring "close enough is good enough", figuring we wouldn't retaliate in kind if they nuked holes in the ocean. Kind of a risky bet IMO though.

You're telling me a Phalanx system wouldn't be about to shoot down almost any missile targeting a military naval vessel?  Why do they even bother to put them on the ships, then?

FTA: In other words, the Achilles' heel of every ship-borne system is that it is only effective as long as it has rounds to fire, which take up room on a ship and demand a lot of fuel to haul. So the farther we go from home base, the more expensive resupply becomes and the longer it takes. On the other hand, a land-based missile system can keep firing rounds indefinitely. In other words, all any nation has to do to destroy one of our most valuable military assets-our capital ships-is to keep firing missiles (no matter how cheap or inferior they are) until the ship runs out of the rounds needed to defend itself.

Well, that sucks.

spamdog: I really wonder if US naval strategists consider this a realistic strategy, or if they're concerned about other threats more.


like funding cuts by a black liberal muslim missile.

been created by China's DF-21D anti-ship missile, dubbed the "carrier killer."

aircraft carriers are weird, they don't really have a lot of in-site defenses, it's almost like they need support ships or airplanes or something that can defend them. we outta equip our aircraft carriers with anti-missile defenses of some kind.

Obviously they just need to install a balistic missle free zone on the carrier and then have nothing to worry about

King Something: bulldg4life: Baryogenesis: Honestly, a swarm of missiles seem like an effective and relatively cheap counter to an expensive surface fleet.  If 90% of incoming missiles are shot down, how many missiles do you need to fire at a carrier (group) to knock it out?  Is it more than 4.5 billion dollars worth (construction cost of a Nimitz class according to wiki) of missiles?

You probably only need to hit with a couple missiles. Of course, attempting to sink a US carrier group can't be good for the health of your populace.

Yup. If even one missile hits, China's population will drop from "India" to "Indiana" within 24 hours.




I seriously doubt it. At most: we'd probably target whatever they have that could be considered a "capital ship," or "capital junk," if you will. (Probably a paddle-boat or something.) We'd sortie some planes over international (but disputed) waters to see if they wanted to throw away some aircraft as well.

China won't ever directly attack us, we owe them way too much money. Should it come to a shooting war, not only would China get it's ass kicked by our superior military, they wouldn't see a dime of that money paid back.

Not, say, sail at 30+knots surrounded by cruisers and destroyed with capability to down theater ballistics missiles.

Two hits and it's considered sunk? Milton Bradley...and maybe Rhiannna(I don't care if it's spelled right) might have something to say about that.
