The U.S. Navy is smallest it has been since 1916. One Hundred Four (104) Years Ago. Hey Mittwitt: The U.S. Navy has Nuclear Powered Air Craft Carriers. In case you don't know what an Air Craft Carrier is...a really big ship that can launch Air Craft, and the Aviators aboard those Air Craft Carriers can land at night, in a pitching sea. The U.S. Navy has Nuclear Power Ballistic Missile Submarines ("Boomer") that carry Trident Nuclear Missiles. Submarines submerge Mittie...oh to many big words. They go under water Mittie, very deep water. The U.S. Navy uses Sonar and Radar now Mittie. The U.S. Air Force (Which did not exist in 1916) has Jet Air Craft capable of reaching over 55,0000 A.G.L. (Above Ground Level). These Air Craft are not made of wood and cloth and their wings do not shred in a deep dive. The cockpits are enclosed and they also carry missiles. The U.S. Army and U.S. Marines no longer uses bolt action rifles (except for snipers). The Army uses something Semi-Automatic and Automatic Rifles now. The U.S. Army and U.S. Marines have something called tanks. The U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy can refuel their Air Craft in Mid-Air. The U.S. Military has something called "Night Vision" goggles.. The U.S. Military uses automobiles, trucks and internal combustion powered vehicles now. Also Mittwitt: Yes, Syria is an Ally of Iran, but Syria is not "Iran's corridor to the sea". Iran and Syria DO NOT HAVE A COMMON BORDER. Iran has access to the sea via the Straits of Hormuz. And you people want us to vote for this jerk.
