First off Romney was explicitly talking about number of ships not funding. Secondly, there has only been 5 naval "battles" since 2000 and during all of those only 3 ships were sunk. Massive naval battles with huge fleets slugging it out is never going to happen again. What we need now is a streamlined quick response navy that can assist ground units more effectively. This means a smaller navy. Fact is we simply don't need a huge ass navy and having one would be horrific waste of money that could be put to better use in other areas.
#71 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
And we know it's never going to happen again how? WW1 was called "The war to end all wars". I'm sure they thought everything was going to be fine after that too. WW2 showed us that all it takes is one charismatic crazy to start a big ass fight. I can think of several crazies in positions of power RIGHT NOW.

And if we're scattered all over the globe like the dumbass world police we're trying to be, we WILL need more ships to support the troops all over the damn planet. Best way to have a quick response is to be in a lot of places at once. Smaller ships maybe, but more of them in strategic places to support troops. We have less warships than countries we have troops in right now.

#54 - bigredthunder (09/25/2014) [-]
Wrong again. Today a smaller navy is exactly what we want. We don't need giant battleships anymore because guided missiles obsoleted them. Modern ships have smaller crews because more systems are automated. Guess what technology is the only thing that should be talked about in concern to navy, because today we can handle threats with one sub that would have taken a whole fleet in 1917.
#58 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
Dude, this isn't civ. It's not like we have nuclear subs and they're rocking triremes. Yeah, one of our subs could take a whole 1917 fleet. But guess about how many other modern subs it can take? Im guessing the number is somewhere around 1(±1). Which means if it DOES come to that, yeah, the bigger navy with the most subs will probably win.

And all the funding to develop and install and maintain those automated systems cost money. Money they gave to the navy. Increasing the navy budget and size.

Come on guys, this isn't crazy.

Technology isnt relevant when discussing military size? Tell that to 135,000 japanese, or 80 million ( estimated ) native americans,
#51 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
Yeah, there are instances of technology being very important to victories, but there are also cases where it counted for jack shit (Isandlwana anyone?), but that's not the point.

We don't have a navy for any unruly natives anymore. And the nuke was a military project funded by military money. We wouldn't have been able to develop it without the large wartime infrastructure and funding we had. One might call that a big military.

We have large a large military because there's a chance some crazy is gonna start a conventional war, which we haven't REALLY seen in decades (although Gulf War 2 counts, it was kinda short). And in a conventional war, excepting some CRAZY technological advantage, the larger military with the most resources and best logistics (all of which cost money that you're using on the military) has the advantage.

And holy shit, how did this get so off topic. I'm not even agreeing with Romney that we need a big navy. Im just saying the presidents analogy was shit.

#50 - angelusprimus (09/25/2014) [-]
No, we have evolved beyond use of battleships (last decomissioned in 1996) and huge amounts of relatively smaller ships who's main weapons were rifled cannons, like in ww1.
Instead of muskets we have assault rifles, so we no longer need a large battle lines, we have skirmish groups. Instead of horses we have tanks, APCs and helicopters.
Instead of a huge navy filled with small ships each with relatively small amount of power, we have fewer ships each more powerful then entire navies in 1917. Carriers, nuclear submarines and guided missile destroyers changed the nature of naval war, just like better rifles and transportation changed the ground war.
#36 - theruinedsage (09/25/2014) [-]
Cruisers and carriers are much more effective at supporting a land operation than destroyers and battleships, meaning you need far less for the same amount of effectiveness. The US doesn't really need a strong naval fighting force, you need a strong naval supporting force, which you didn't have during ww1, but which you have now.

If you can't understand how the role of a navy has changed during a hundred years of political and technological progress/change, you should probably shut up instead of yapping your mouth.
#35 - bigredthunder (09/25/2014) [-]
Except thats not true at all. Want to know what we didn't have in 1917? Aircraft carriers, you know those huge ass floating runnways? We also didn't have any submarines which is a huge part of our navy now. Times change.
#47 - wyldek (09/25/2014) [-]
That doesn't change the fact that we don't want a small navy. The sizes of the military can be judged many different ways. My guess is that Romney was referring to budget and personnel.

So sure, we don't need as many $7B Aircraft Carriers as we need $3M (1906) Dreadnaughts, but we do still need the ~7000 people to crew each one, and the resources to produce and maintain them. Which you can't do with a "small" navy.

Now, whether we NEED a big military is a different discussion. But that would have nothing to do with technology and everything to do with the political climate.

The point is, when talking about the size of a military branch, technology is irrelevant. Having a big army in the 1800s and having a big army now means different things. That doesn't mean that a small army is better than a big one.
