China or any other nation is incapable of invading us.
We can attack anywhere in the world.
You're right. A US Navy carrier is one of the best ways that we have to project power all across the planet. And, like I told Weatherman, China only has 5 carriers, and only 2 of those are operational. We have 11.
Then, there is the fact that the US Navy has the best platform for launching planes (steam and electromagnetic catapults), while just about every other country with a carrier is still using ramps.
Then, factor in the fact that the article is from June of 2008, which was almost 12 years ago. The world and our relationships in it have changed greatly since then.
