Default A sign of the time to come

The recently launched George H. W. Bush aircraft carrier is going to be the last of the Nimitz class to be launced. The US Navy is currenlty working on its soon(ish) to launch new Gerald R.Ford class aircraft carrier. Whilst having no advantage over the Nimitz class in terms of capaicty or fire power it is kitted out with the most modern equipment, all with the aim of making its operation as automated as possible in order to keep the running cost down.

Heres my theory, the USA are satisfied with the quality, afterall Irans navy isnt going to take them out and na aircraft carrier is not an offensive weapon, it is a platform for air attacks. The USA obviously want as many of these platforms out there as possible since at present it has space for under 10% of its aircraft on carriers. such an air arm fleet (if thats what they call it over there aswell) could probably take out any world airforce other than the IAF but this isnt enough. They not only want the strongest navy, they want to say look out fleet air arm is unrivaled by any world airforce.

The USA army is truely amazing and much of this is due to the navy. There is no other country in the world to havy anything close to this tpye of capability. The USA can launch an attack against anyone anywhere in huge numbers. No other country currently has the capability to launch a large scale assult 1000's of miles away other than the USA.

I think that once China develops further and throws off the shackles of the dictatorship, which it will do, it has gone through the point of no return, there will be democrecy, and then China will be part of the west, they will be a chrstian nation since that is its fastest growing religion, (China is predicted to be majority Christian with in 2 decades) over there. There will be no arams race between then and the USA. They will be side by side. I welcome that day.
