Big Government apparently has enough money to assist a movie that glorifies the killing of white people with a $8.4 million subsidy, yet it can’t afford to refuel our aircraft carriers, so that they rust idly while the world spins out of control. China has rushed to fill the power vacuum by launching a stealth frigate. Even as Iran expands its naval capabilities, our presence in the Persian Gulf has been reduced to a single carrier. Now we see this:
The aircraft carriers USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. US Navy Photo
The Eisenhower at least is no longer there. But these carriers should never have been in the same place at the same time.
It’s as if Democrats are following up their attempted reenactment of the Great Depression by staging Pearl Harbor II. A single missile might take them all out. Or a strategically sunk ship could possibly keep them bottled up.
If our “Commander in Chief” hadn’t spent his life surrounded by people sworn to the destruction of the USA, this might be passed off as gross incompetence.
