The Germans and Japanese can't build them. They agreed not to when they signed the articles of surrender. Why in the fuck is the US considered the only super power left in the world dip-shit? Because of our Navy. BTW, every carrier has an expiration date. They need refitting every 5 years or they become foalting rust-buckets. They only have a life expectancy of 20-30 years. The Nimitiz is already getting too old to bother refitting. When it comes to support ships those are getting old too. And what the fuck does this have to do with education. We're not paying for kids to fight wars. We're paying them to learn how to turn their backs on their own country and side with our enemies. How can we count on them to defend it?
