...however, if Big Brother should ever take control of it...
Not doing a damn bit of good against all the muzzies in Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan and Hamas and Detroit...etc etc
Last report I saw - they are all in port at the moment - except Bush - which is off of Bahrain and stationed at that port...they cost too much to be deploy and it interferes with golf tours...
They forgot the Canadian Aircraft Carrier.
There’s a great picture with several GU-11’s ready for takeoff.
America is currently running a MASSIVE trade deficit with China, which is rapidly gaining as the second-largest military.
Hey I found it...
here it is...
What good is a large military if the people in charge don’t know how to use it effectively?
We really haven’t won a war since WWII. Yes, we have won battles (Gulf War 1 and 2, etc), but we have not acted decisively in any conflict since WW2. By decisive, I mean utterly crushing the enemy in battle and imposing favorable terms for the cessation of hostilities.

Doesn’t matter. All you have to do to take over America is send your toddlers.

Seems someone gave me false information on the current state of our carriers...uhm...very interesting...
I missed that one - it was a financial report concerning over whether the US had the ability to project power worldwide when the US Carrier fleet was in port...had to do with the federal budget. IF I read the link correctly - out of 10 carriers - only 4 are out and about right now...with additional carriers being built...but the link is informative to say the least...
