This news item wouldn't be an issue if Obama and Kerry would stop giving Egypt $10, BILLION, 20 F-18's and 100 M-1 tanks while he and his family keeps taking $100, Million dollar vacations.

13 aircraft carriers with over 5,000 saliors on each one. You do the math on the cost each month to keep that kind armada going. Each carrier in turn requires cruisers, destroyers, and sub as combat escorts. They also require 2 to 3 auxiliary supply support ships even if they are nuclear powered. Who in the world is capable of taking on our Navy right now? No one except maybe Russia. China has threatened they can destroy our carriers as they are vulnerable to missile attacks. Russia similar design plans. If we going mothball a few to save money so be it but don't bring them back unless a real war breaks out that would require such reactivation. Keep this in mind no country in the world can fight wars for 12 years give to the nations they invade and not take in new resources and labor from the conquered lands. I detest Obama but considering our state of the deficit this is the right move. Former US Navy veteran honorable discharged served in Desert Storm sickened by the US government who refuses to acknowledge it.

This is just another step by Obama and his lackeys to weaken our country's defenses so that Obama's radical Islamists buddies or some Socialistic group can attempt to take over our country.
