SUPER- ETENDARD 1
F-111 NIGHT COCKPIT
CHINESE CHENGDU J-10
Are we getting anywhere saying that our military aircraft and ships are
sitting ducks. The Ronald Reagan is a typical aircraft carrier, at 1100
feet long. It is huge. Imagine an attack by hundreds of Exocet type missiles
launched by submarine and smaller very fast boats. At present in our battle
with Iraq and eventually with Iran we have numbers of ships in close proximity
to land. If there ever was a sitting duck the aircraft carrier is surely
one. Imagine when the first one goes down with 5,000 men on board, that
will be the end of the aircraft carrier. I personally would not like to
be on an aircraft carrier, a B-52, or an army tank. During WW11 our ship
loses to the German submarine were enormous.
Russia and China are continually working with huge budgets producing improved
missiles. The Russian S-400 system is a fearsome development.
QUICK STRIKE FORCES
It doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize our need for an immediate development
of "Quick Strike Units." The George Bush war has been going
on longer than WW11. When do we get another wall and start engraving names?
We have no plan, no desire to win, and a bunch of worn out Humvees. If
you want to occupy a country for political reasons then that is our governments
privilege. Fast strike forces are the answer, not bunching up all our
troops in Baghdad. Our military leaders are not trained or prepared to
handle anything different than what they have been doing.
We need newly trained brass.
Yes we need ground troops. The US is having problems raising 150,000 National
Guard. North Korea has a one million man well trained well disciplined
China has over two million, and it's staggering to thing how many they
could come up with. The bottom line here is that we surely do not want
to get into a ground war with any country. We should stick with wars with
countries like Granada. Russia reportedly has a one million man army.
China has 4350 aircraft, recently developed the J-10 which has excellent
possibilities. Admittedly all of these figures are approximate, and you
can find different numbers on another listing.
US NEEDS CHANGE IN MILITARY PREPAREDNESS
So what is the most dangerous weapon? Has the US done anything right?
The US is blessed with a nuclear submarine force second to none. Ten Trident
subs, armed with nuclear warheads and placed strategically around the
globe could destroy the world as we know it. After analyzing other countries
capability is there a final solution.? Of course there is. We need to
get rid of "Sitting Ducks." We should form many fast strike
groups, and increase our stockpile of different types of missiles. We
need surface to air, surface to surface, ground to ground. The old man
to man combat system has got to go. We just won't get into that type of
war. It should never be considered. We can overrun these small countries
like Granada, but the real truth will come out when we have the inevitable
conflict with China.
Something to think about. China, Russia, and the US have huge stockpiles
of nuclear missiles. All of the ones from China and Russia are pointed
in our direction. The very first time within seconds after someone pushes
the button to launch, it is certain that immediate retaliation will happen.
When all the buttons are pushed that will be the end of the world as we
know it. It is very doubtful if man can ever recover from such a complete
