Fuggin Bizzy: BravadoGT: we don't even know whether we can defend them against China's "carrier-killers"...Good point. We'd better double the defense budget. We cannot allow a carrier-killer gap!
SuperNinjaToad: hasty ambushIf you're going to fix the chart right at least be fair to the entire chart!. You're just being intellectually dishonest. You're right it's not up to date but on the US AND the non US side as well. How convenient you only 'corrected' the USN's.Last I check ALL ships/carriers go through year long refit not just USN's. In countries that has one or two it means they will have only one or NO carriers. The first QE class is not anywhere near completion let alone having 2 same with India, Japan etc. France has 1 carrier NOT 2.If you're going to fix charts at least make it accurate!
semiotix: Tom! But they said you were dead!
J. Frank Parnell: netcentric: Big, expensive .... not paid for.Just put it on the US taxpayers tab. They're good like that.
BravadoGT: Before you start thinking these things are juggernauts--remember, we don't even know whether we can defend them against China's "carrier-killers"...And one day--we may have to.
With President Stern Lanternjaw hospitalized while receiving treatment for the Super-AIDS virus that the Russo-Japanese alliance had infected him with, Acting President Snidely von Liberal was sitting in the Oval Office when the COMSECDEFFLTPAC brought him news that the Chinese People's Army Navy had destroyed the USS Nimitz with a carrier-killer missile."Mr. 'President,'" the COMSECDEFFLTPAC spat, hating the taste of the word in his mouth, "this is an act of naked aggression. It is war, sir, and we must retaliate with all we have, immediately.""But, but... a carrier-killer uses conventional explosives!" von Liberal wailed, as tears ran down his blubbery face. "We've drawn a line around use of WMDs, but we never said they couldn't blow up our ships with regular weapons! If we retaliate, I'll be humiliated at U.N. cocktail parties!"
Lee Jackson Beauregard: ZAZ: BolshyGreatYarblocksFord saw combat on a carrier, so he got a carrier. Carter served on a sub, so he got a sub. FDR was assistant secretary of the Navy, so he got an assistant surface vessel.Actually CV-42 was named after FDR. It was decommissioned. Get over it.So on which carrier did St. Ronald serve?
mudpants: The Navy enters the 22nd century on Saturday with the christening of its newest aircraft carrier, the Gerald R. Ford, at Newport News Shipyardare my maths wrong or is this not the way math works ?
HMS_Blinkin: Yeah, not watching Cheney and Rumsfeld. F*ck those assholes.
BravadoGT: Fuggin Bizzy: sefert: What does LGT stand for? Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual? Is this another one of them liberal groups?"Link Goes To"Our military is too goddamn big. This is a machine that will ultimately end up killing people in the name of protecting and extending US hegemony. It represents, in the final sense...Still...military hardware is cool. Especially super-carriers./So conflicted.Before you start thinking these things are juggernauts--remember, we don't even know whether we can defend them against China's "carrier-killers"...And one day--we may have to.
ZAZ: I'm with sefert. Fark is discriminating against bisexual aircraft carriers. What if the crew includes both Navy and Marines?
