By the way, we too have eight small carriers which are Wasp-class amphibious assault ships and then normally carry only SIX AV-8 Harriers! But I don't think any where in the area at the time.
They would have just a few Harriers but could also carry a SEAL team and they also have the helicopters to deploy them.
But Obama has cut back on deployments and training so he can divert money to his social programs.
Also, the Wasp-class ships are 40,000 tones and we need ones that are closer to 75,000 tons.
If, if if, Rogue. If my aunt had balls, she's be my uncle. AV-8 Harriers can only carry one pilot, no seals. And if the US has eight of those, where were they? Well, Rogue, even if you have 50 of them, they cannot be all over the map.

Social programs vs military? You'd put the military ahead of health care, pensions, social security, education and other programs? What will you have left to protect? As it is, the US defence budget is bigger than that of Russia, China and the UK combined. How much do you need? How do all those armaments prevent and defeat the biggest threat of them all, terrorism? Who you gonna attack with all those weapons? Big arsenals used to impress rogue states. No more.

I'm sorry, but I can't figure why none of them work. Very frustrating, but knowing this, it's why I post the link AND the ensuing paragraph to help you locate it should you so desire. But you certainly do not have to, up to you, as I know I've got my evidence or proof or confirmation or whatever. I'm even less a computer expert than you are.

The U.K. had relied on U.S. aerial tankers like our KC-135. Sure they had "Buddy" tankers which were Vulcan bombers fitted with a kit but they were inferior to the U.S. tankers.
To get one Vulcan bomber to attack the airfield at Port Stanley during the Falkland War it took eleven buddy tankers to get ONE vulcan bomber to and from the Falklands and their base on the Ascension Islands which had a round trip of 7,800 miles.

We regularly fly our B-1s, B-2s and B-52s all of this world are far greater distances using our fleet of aerial tankers. Recently a B-2 flew from its base in Missouri round trip to S. Korea.
REASSURING ALLIES
While the 20-year-old B-2 often flies for long durations - 44 hours is the record - Thursday's flight of approximately 37-1/2 hours was the plane's first non-stop mission to the Korean peninsula and back from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, Air Force officials said.
With Pyongyang threatening missile strikes on the U.S. mainland, as well as U.S. bases in Hawaii and Guam, the flight seemed designed to demonstrate how easy it would be for the United States.

That's what I meant by air-refuelling and long-range bombers making aircraft carriers almost obsolete. And, don't forget, in case of conflict with N.Korea, B2s and all other fighters and bombers don't have to deploy from the U.S. Cripes, like during the Korean war, from Japan and South Korea for starters, no mid-air refuelling required or very little.

PS : Vulcan have been replaced by A-330 Airbuses. Vulcans, VC10s and retrofitted Comets were used as military refuellers and transports and British-kind AWACS just to keep their military local and foster employment in the defence sector. They were ridiculously old and the maintenance!

I did loved the VC10, flew it many times - what an aircraft. Too bad it never had much success. It was made for short-field operations, specially in developing countries, but longer runways were built in any case and the short-field requirement was not necessary. That's when the 707 and DC87 killed the Comet and VC10.

That's FoxNews.com for you. If they have a doubt, you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be Obama-negative.
So you don't have carriers in the Mediterranean. No one except the French with their one carrier has any in the Mediterranean. How many carriers do China and Russia have? ZERO! Et alors?
Spark plugs? What kind of analogy is that? And if you're talking about badly-planned long-term maintenance, why don't you start with the Navy, not the president. They have a budget, up to them to work it out.
Since the 2nd WW, how many wars have aircraft carriers helped to win? Aircraft carriers are like dinosaurs, Rogue. With missiles of all kinds, all ranges, multiple warheads, long-range bombers, air-refuelling-able fighter bombers, forward bases in the Atlantic, the Pacific, Indian Ocean, West and Eastern Europe, in the Middle East (Bahrain, etc) and Alaska, sophisticated drones, what you are short of but need more than aircraft carriers, I figure, are landing crafts that can disembark troops and equipment rapidly. Just as battleships became obsolete after WW1, so are aircraft carriers quickly becoming so and that is no doubt why other world powers are eschewing them.$6 billion per ship plus manning, maintenance, equipment, etc, and what a target! Can you really afford that? In the final analysis, what's going to be left to protect? The USSR is a case in point. Armed to the teeth in 1989, they nevertheless collapsed like a house of cards. All they could manufacture were armaments. No need to emulate them.
And when a carrier task force arrives off the coast of a rogue country, they notice. And then why is the U.K. building two new carriers? And why is China working to deploy their first carrier?

Well, is is not difficult to beat the bottom dollar out of Obama. It is like Clinton jokes. If you tried the same joke of Barack and Michelle or G.W. and Laura, it would not be funny. Examply;
Did you hear Hillary had a heart attack? Bill made a pass at her.
or;
Did you hear Michelle had a heart attack? Barack made a pass at her.
or
Did you hear Laura Bush had a heart attack? G.W. made a pass at her.
only the joke about the Clintons is funny as a joke mst be based on reality to be funny. We all know Hillary "The Boner Shrinker" Clinton and Bill "The Bent Crank" Clinton, don't we!!!

Britain has only two helicopter carriers, their Harriers were retired in 2010. They are about 1/8th the size of our Nimitz class carriers.

Reaction time? How long would it take for a special ops time to fly from Fort Campbell, KY to Africa?
It take a B-2 37 hours to fly round trip from the U.S. to Korea. You could have an aircraft carrier launch, recover, relaunch, etc. ten times in the same period!

If you read my last post on the UK's new carriers, you'll note that I reported the Economist's comment that at the point where they were now in construction, it would be more expensive to cancel than finish. I predicted they'd mothball them first thing when completed, you'll see. And, if carriers are so important as you point out, why has the UK decided to go without for 8 to 13 years? The Chinese have been building that carrier for decades almost now. And for what? No other carrier on the horizon. As to India, Italy, Spain, supposedly allies, their carriers are jokes. Only France has one modern nuclear carrier.

As to carriers off the shores of rogue nations, tell me what that accomplished in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, in the Middle East etc. Very little or Zilch. In the Cuban missile crisis, double zilch. It's all about guerilla warfare, insurgency and terrorism now, Rogue. We'd best find solutions to those. Might be cheaper too.

Anybody, even you, can counter with a pointless and unexplained statement. It's what you do all the time. You are both illiterate and ignorant. You cannot logically address any subject except to cry out obscenity and t*rds out of mouths. And then, out comes "boy, did I clownstomp them". And, amazingly, you actually believe that you did.
