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.

All of them attacked simultaneously? Apart from Russia and China, which country has the means to attack those bases? Name it. Russia and China have no interest any more in attacking the US or its bases anywhere (come to think of it, they never did) but should they so desire, it'd be much easer, with the weapons they have, to target a big fat 100,000 ton carrier than bases. Bases may be damaged badly, but can be repaired or moved. Not so a sitting duck carrier.

Ice wave hits houses in Canada

A tsunami of ice has slammed into a lakeside community in Canada, crushing several houses.

The wall of ice, which hit Manitoba's Ochre Beach, lasted 15 minutes, and sent locals fleeing to safety.

"They heard it before they saw it (the ice) coming up their decks," local official Clayton Watts told the Winnipeg Free Press. "Then it came right in their front windows. It was just a matter of minutes."

A booming noise alerted many people and gave them enough time to safely evacuate, Watts added.

"Fortunately, no one was hurt," he said. "We were very lucky."

A similar ice wave was reported in the US state of Minnesota.

Tsunami of ice plows into dozens of Canadian homes; no one injured in freak disaster
It took about 15 minutes for the ice floes to pour out of Manitoba’s Dauphin Lake and spill onto a couple dozen properties Friday. Homeowners were left picking up the pieces over the weekend.

Forget India, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya and Syria. As to Iran and North Korea, hot feasible. Find some other country. In history, none of those countries (not even N.

Yes, a strong wind pushed ice and snow onto houses and unfortunately destroyed quite a few of them, a rare and unusual event. It surely confirms, yes, who needs more proof?, that we are in a period of global cooling. Yes indeed.

But they are deterred by our overwhelming presence. Party of defence is to make someone thing three or four times before they challenge us. Would Japan have attacked Pearl Harbor unless they thought they would NOT be successful?
Japan had 17 operational aircraft carriers to our SEVEN (USS Langley had been downgraded to a seaplane tender) at the beginning of WWII and we had to cover two Oceans and they had to cover only the Pacific!
Oh, which country had the first purpose built aircraft carrier? Japan with the Hosho which was launched in 1922. Yes, Japan was third to get an aircraft carrier but the first to build one as a carrier.
Whereas our Lanley could do only 15 knots, the Hosho could do 25 knots and could keep up with all but destroyers when it was launch.

Did you notice that it also happened in Minnesota a few days earlier? DOUBLE-rare!!!
First recorded snow in Arkansas during the month of May? More than rare as it had never been recorded before.
New Delhi, ID, new record all time low temperature? Germany, coldest Winter and Spring in 150 years? In fact the last three plus years have seen all kinds of record Winter weather.
I know, I know, you are going to say how many record HIGH temps we have had ...... but they are ALL in Large "Urban Heat Island" Cities and not the Earth in general. Now with a Urban Heat Island like New Delhi sets a new record LOW, now that is something to write home about!
