Somehow the US has managed to take too active a role in world affairs while at the same type not doing enough to suit the rest of the world, quite the paradox.

BTW Sukio, why do you say "we" in reference to the United States, your english skills and your signature point towards you being Japanese.

All I m saying is,I dont want some other outside opinons to think the US is full of itself as a world super power,and hgih dollar stuff seems to reniforce those un true opionions.
I'm actually kind of glad that they scaled back the order from 300 F-22s to 180-190 F-22s. The F-22 itself is already powerful, and what kind of war is the US waging in the near future that would require these super advanced jets. The only country I can think of would most likely be Russia but a war with them in the next 50 years seems unlikely. As for China, it's going to be more of an economical or assymetrical war than a conventional war. Terrorism? F-22s can't really do much against guerilla warfare.

I agree that Americans should not be too complacent with their own technology. Underestimating the enemy is one of the gravest mistakes one can make in a battle/war. Americans must understand that everyone is human, therefore everyone can make mistakes. What you can think of, someone out there probably already thought of but didn't have enough funding to go through with it. Economic power is what gave American a head start and hopefully Americans will be smart and humble enough to realize that and not lose their place.

We only get called when we have perosnel interest,and then we try to rebuild the contry,leave and then watch as all those lives and time is wasted in a few months as that contry collaspes and then blames us for their problems,the claims another International Jihad agsaist the Western world,

Thats just me,looking through the wide veiw lense,
Well, the US does what it can. Ninety-eight percent seems a little high to me coming from Muslim countries considering most of them are oil rich and/or has too much pride to ask for the help of "infidels." Care to provide a source or two on this 98% figure?

As for nations serving their own self-interest... I think every nation does that. The US does it to a larger extent because they think 3 steps ahead instead of just 1. If the US meddles in the affairs of a nation that may seem like it serves them no interest, it may serve the interest of a nation that in turn serves the interest of the US. Sound confusing? Ok, let me try to set an example: US helps nation C which almost serves them no interest, but in reality nation C serves the interest of nation B. Nation B is a major interest of the US.

All I see when the US tries to help a nation in need is harsh criticism. For the US, it's damned if they do, damned if they don't.

You are playing a card that seems to point to your own form of racism. You stopped at saying that you are American. I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and know many Japanese Americans, Chinese Americans as well as other ethnic groups. None of them try to hide their heritage when they have a political argument, face to face is hard to do, but when they are on BB's, such as this one, they are upfront about what their background is.

So tell us Sukio, what is your heritage?

If you are trying to double cross my words and contunuely steer all of my efforts to revise and restate the topic back to its orginal "Feel"Then its hard to describe its effectiveness,I will try my hardest to prevent this from becoming a belligarent situation,and try to keep my efforts from falling into the depths as vain attempts to preseve a fasle sense of respect wich you think I keep in my self,this is ever growingly more and more pointless and Im am coming closer and closer to grasping the fact that I may as well be better off abandoning this thread than meandoring in a Catch 22 that I have created myself.....

Thanks man,...........

Any way the CVN 21 ,as some speculate,Will just be a more exspensive version of the Current Nimitz class,just with a new name stamped on it,

I disagree,as for the F 35 Program,I myself am no longer skepticale on it,...

I'm just trying to find out where he is coming from. I don' know many people without an agenda that would make the politically motivated comments that he did without having that agenda.

If he is ashamed of his ethnic background there might be a reason.

I am American Indian (Cherokee), German, Scottish, and probably a few that I'm not aware of.

Just like the Nimitz Class was more expensive than the Forrestall Class and the, Kitty Hawk Class and the Class following the Enterprise. BTW, the Enterprise was more expensive than any two of the previous carriers due to the 6 (or 8 I forget which) nuclear reactors that was onboard. Not to mention the cost of refueling and SLEP's that had to consider the nuclear equation.

Dollars are different today than they were when the other classes of carriers were built. Gas was under $1.00 a gallon when the Nimitz was built and by under a dollar a gallon I mean between $0.50 and $0.60 a gallon. The keel was laid down in 1968 and it was commissioned in 1972.

Just to update gas prices, I paid $2.99 last week for a gallon of gas, and a couple of weeks before that I paid $3.19.

Keep building war ships is not avoidable if they don't want to lose technical know-how about ships.
