In Response To: "USA is a defense-based economy.". . . *PIC* (LongGone)
One is now sailing and the other two are under construction. The USA's fleet of carriers have been very helpful in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan. The USA has aircraft operations bases in both Iraq and Afghanistan ... and full-fledged air bases in Germany, England, Italy and Turkey - carriers not needed. However, they'll make great targets in the Pacific and Sea of Japan for the "Rocket Man".
The USA has not fought a fully conventional war since Korea (1950-53). Except for our 6-week coalition forces war in Kuwait (Jan 16-Feb 25,1991), all of the USA's military engagements have been primarily of an unconventional nature. The USA needs more unconventional weapons - like drones & special forces - not conventional armaments, tactics and strategies.
