During the Falklands War they had only a few very small carriers and the Argentines almost kicked their butts.
You don't know much about the Falkland (or Malvinas) war , do you? Carrier with Harriers or not, the outcome would have been the exact same. The Argentines were ill-equipped, shortage of rations, no winter uniforms, poor weapons and local hostility. Exocet missiles were the bane of the Brits, but even after the sinking of one of their ships by said Exocet, the Brits pretty easily prevailed. What you don't know is the subtle support they received, mostly from Chile (hence Thatcher's support for tyrant Pinochet to the end) and Brazil who both gave the Brits port facilities, refuelling and supplies. I'd tell you more, but you're not interested.

What forces deployed to Benghazi? From where? It's been pretty well established that no forces could've made it on time. Did you want a carrier task force stationed off Libya to protect the US cultural centre in Benghazi IN CASE it was attacked? Is that what you're trying to say?
You didn't need the carriers to air bomb Libya. Canada, France and the UK all operated their missions from mainland Europe, no carriers. And incidentally, just for the record, it was a stupid mission
LMAO!!! Boring, boring, boring, you havn't any idea what you are talking about, you just like to talk and of course we love to laugh (laff) at you!

I knew all along that Hillary Clinton was lying about the role of the "Innocence of Muslims" video in the coordinated Benghazi attack on the anniverary of 9/11, and now it appears the Democrats will sacrifice their queen in desperation.

You are thick-headed and obstinate, aren't you, and wallowing in total cluelessness. Told you in the event of conflict, the US has bases all over the world, and would deploy their aircraft to those bases if need be. Would sure beat a 37-hr roundtrip. Libya was bombed mostly from Europe. It was bombed from a carrier, sure, but it was not necessary. Khadafi was bombed from Spain and the UK years ago if my memory serves me right. Korea from Japan and Guam. N.Vietnam from the south, Thailand and B52 from Guam.
In the event of a conflict, what if those bases were attacked and damaged so badly that they wouldn't be able to conduct aircraft operations?

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!
There are special op teams already operating in the area and it wouldn't take very long for them to deploy anywhere in Africa.

As far as the lack of tankers, the only reference I have is what I heard on Fox News. Next, aircraft acciers/.
We for decade maintained at least one carrier task force in the mediterranean. We do not have the assets to do that today. Again, we have only ten operation carriers. Four are deployed to places the the Arabian coast just south of the Persian Gulf. We have two in a training cycle which could respond on short notice (one to two weeks). We then have four in maintenance two of are short, less than six months) and two long, 6-12 months (reactor refueling).
Lets say you want to change your spark plugs on your car. Do you start to work on it just as soon as you return from a short time while the engine is hot or do you wait an hours? Well, reactors take a few MONTHS to cool before you can start to refuel them.
Oh, the USS Enterprise could possibly returned to service in about six months but a war can be lost in six months.

It would take a non-nuclear powered ship less time to be reactivated.
Just use google maps and zoom in on San Diego harbor and you'll see dozens of deactivated ships.

For once I cant even think of anything to say that could possibly do that one justice.
Except point out that that is PRECISELY how you dismiss ANY input that isnt spoonfed to you by FOX or the Koch Bros.

And I suppose the Libtards in the IRS have not been targeting right-wing groups, like the TEA Parties, for special scrutiny while ignoring left-wing groups.
Case in point. Catholic Churches usually put out voting records of politicians and indicate whether they are pro-life or pro-abortion and they will NOT endorse a political party nor an individual candidate but many black churches do indorse the Democrat Party and specific candidates. But the IRS will totally ignore the black churches but investigate the Catholic Church!!!
Libtards have CRIMINALIZED politics!!!

Not so. Every "inactive" nuclear ship has a nuclear crew on board both to maintain the reactor but also keep it secure!
The difference between and Inactive and a Deactive plane, ship, etc. it that is any Deactivate plane, ship, etc. the major components are removed or disabled.
Case in point was the WWII Victory ships which have been periodically put in "mothballs" (inactive). Sure they were dusted off for the Korean War and then the Vietnam War but in the Persian Gulf War they were in bad condition they had to be scrapped. You see, once a year the Inactive ships are suppose to be run up and every system tested. But we don't.
The USS Enterprise is being mothballed right now but it will take about three months to get it ready for sea. Now, don't ever forget it is just ONE aircraft carrier. It is a whole Carrier Task force consisting of over a dozen ships, two submarines, and an air wing (aircraft, crews, etc.) Oh, the "crew" of the USS Enterprise consisted of about 3,000 ship's crew and 1,800 aircrew. But in the whole carrier task force you need over 10,000 trained men and women.
