#64 - Our navy also had a much smaller role in the world back then. …  [+] (10 new replies) 02/17/2015 on rekt 0

Only way you can say that navy is smaller is if you count the number of ships.
So yes, that's true.
On the other hand tonnage of our ships today is over three and half time larger.
Why? Because in 1917 we had battleships and now we have nuclear aircraft carriers. Majority of the ships we had then were about the size of a today's gunboat. And today's gunboat could take on a 1917 battleship and sink it without a problem because now we have guided missiles, and then we had large gunpowder canons.
If we also look at it in the amount of projected firepower, single carrier battlegroup would be not just equal to entire 1917 fleet, but ALL the fleets in 1917 in the world put together.
Actually until chinese make their supercarrier operational a full sized carrier group with a submarine escort is equal to pretty much any navy today. And we have 10.

So anyone who thinks our navy is weaker than it was in 1917 is a complete idiot.

Nobody ever said weaker. He said smaller. North Korea has more submarines than we do. Though our Navy was never our militaristic claim to fame.
User avatar #216 - themanwithnoplan (02/18/2015) [-]
It can be argued that our Navy is what first made us a World Power, since we had such a crushing victory over Spain in the Spanish-American War. Even though Spain was basically operating on sticks and bubblegum at the time, we lost 1 guy at Havana Bay but destroyed Spain's entire navy in the Caribbean.

And don't forget the Great White Fleet. We had the second largest navy in the world and we took a world tour in 1907 just to flaunt it off (See: Gunboat Diplomacy)
User avatar #221 - truesmokewolf (02/18/2015) [-]
Yes, but our position as a modern world superpower is mainly decided by our vastly superior air force.
User avatar #223 - themanwithnoplan (02/18/2015) [-]
Yes, but you said our Navy had never been a claim to fame, which was basically the purpose of the Great White Fleet to rest of the world.
User avatar #225 - truesmokewolf (02/18/2015) [-]
Okay, you're right. At one point, it was our claim to fame.
User avatar #82 - cheezbrgr (02/17/2015) [-]
I never said it was weaker. Our navy is tremendously powerful by any standards. But when do you think we are gonna be having naval battles. Our modern navy is more about projecting American influence across the world. Providing humanitarian assistance and patrolling trouble areas like the middle east. It would be easier to accomplish this with more ships rather than bigger ships.
#122 - angelusprimus (02/18/2015) [-]
Navy doesn't WANT more ships. Navy wants large, high tech ships that can project massive amounts of force while being minimally vulnerable to enemy action.
More is not always better.
User avatar #133 - cheezbrgr (02/18/2015) [-]
More is definitely better for the current role of our navy. Which is not very combat oriented. That being said, the comment by the president insinuated that the navy is obsolete. Which it is clearly not.
User avatar #181 - aingoia (02/18/2015) [-]
They sure are spending hella money to just project American influence [url deleted] Mind citing your sources? From the quote of Robert Gates, it sounds like the role of the US Navy is in fact combat, it's just that nobody thinks that fighting us head on is a good idea.

And yet we have free will, so he could definitely still do that. Unless free will magically stops existing when is convenient for your narrative?
User avatar #1009 - cheezbrgr (02/01/2015) [-]
the angels in heaven, beings of immense power, shy away from the wrath of god. it is arrogant to even think that a man would stand up to a being that is the every essence of absolute power. he knows your questions and the answer long before you even existed. as an all knowing being all of time is simultaneous he know. if god is real he is the definition of morality not an adherent to it. a being who knows all and can change the very laws of nature and existence is surely more capable of defining right and wrong than a human being for whom right an wrong is generally a matter of convenience rather than any intelligence of enlightenment.

But Smirnoff is well-known for being crap vodka. I mean, don't they still make FLAVORED vodka? Big sign the vodka is poorly filtered, which is what determines the quality of the vodka.
#25 - Enobrin (01/30/2015) [-]
Yep, I don't mind Smirnoff, but my local bar changed their well brand a while back and whatever it is tastes like gasoline. Not that I drink vodka anything very often.

Blindly rejecting something is just as bad as blindly accepting it. The ones that question are fine, as long as they are actually trying to find out the answers and not just discouraging people from believing in the ideas,
User avatar #17 - platinumaltaria (01/08/2015) [-]
Anyone who blindly accepts anything is stupid, regardless of whether it is correct or not. That's why people do research to figure out what the fuck is actually going on in this world. When people shit on that methodology, they are effectively saying "I don't care that 100% of the evidence points away from me, I still think the alien illuminati are controlling the muslim government." There is no medium between intellect and stupidity. You don't have to be a genius to be intellectual, you just have to be able to think critically about what you are told.

You're trying to sound smart, but you just sound like a smug idiot. All these ideas are fucking retarded.
