After looking at these pictures I am confused...Why would you put your aircraft carriers on the outside? Wouldnt this make them vulnerable to a sub that slipped through the outside defenses? Wouldnt it make more sense to put a couple of destroyers on the outside so the less important less expensive ship takes the hit...

Thats a glamour shot, not a battle formation.


Its a real pretty picture all right. Too bad they'll never actually use it. And the Iranians obviously know this, or they'd be halting their nuke program. They haved thumbed their nose at Bush so long they are getting blisters. Makes him look like a clown. Talk about a loss of prestige for the US!
