to keep pace with China, Russia at sea,
analysts say

China and Russia have dramatically accelerated their naval shipbuilding and modernization programs in recent years, while the U.S. has struggled to improve its own capacity for warfighting missions and been tagged with a poor readiness rating from national security analysts. The Chinese have made particularly notable strides, engaging in a maritime buildup that made global headlines a year ago when Pentagon officials sounded the alarm that Beijing’s total fleet roughly 350 warships had surpassed the roughly 300 maintained by Washington.(Snip)“They’ve got a lot of shipyards and a lot of capacity,” says Brent Sadler, a retired U.S. naval officer and analyst with the Heritage Foundation. “They’re building lots of ships.”


The mission of the USA is to combat climate change and White supremacy in all its forms, to promote LGBTQ+, and to import the world's huddled masses and provide them with first-world accommodations courtesy of the taxpayer. Funding a military on top of this would break the bank, which is probably the idea, the same way the Soviet Union collapsed, but in reverse, with us adopting Marxism in full.

What's the sense in building ships if you don't have the men to sail on them?

We do have a vegetable in the WH who will only listen to Milley Vanilly ,Idi Amin Austin and know nothing blinken blanken, who are about as clueless as the first vege. Milley might make a call to his BFF the Chinese Commie general and ask what we should do in the US. Now that will set things right!

In any real war normal surface ships can tracked by satellite and would be easy targets probably taken out in the first few days. Our fewer new ships are stealth which as with air planes, is a force multiplier.

If our Navy would stop wasting money on rubbish, and stop having ships burned out or damaged by collisions...maybe the British, Aussies and Taipei Chinese would like to pitch in a bit deeper, too.

Dems will NOT permit it. Trillions for handouts to illegal aliens but nothing for our defense. And anyway, the fools with stars on their shoulders in place now won't be able to order, or operate effective designs. My niece, a USMC officer's wife, told my on video link last night from Japan that she knew several LTCOLs with 17 and 18 years service who were being tossed out for not taking the vaccine. They are literally destroying the military, and our emergency services folks with this Death Lottery Shot.

Tossing out the good men is a great way to degrade the entire miliary. Men and women who are smart enough not to buy a lottery ticket on health problems being sold as a "vaccine" are being drummed out. So...short on troops, and some of our best and brightest unwilling to compromise to take The Shot being fired. Yep, Traitor Joe is doing the bidding of the ChiComs and Rooskies. Dismantling our armed forces, as ordered.

Agree with all the above posters. Why build new ships when the OOD will crash them into another ship with loss of life then we have two ships written off because they have been turned into hulks due to fire. But what the hay, tops in world in diversity and stabbing our allies in the back. That's what counts.

You could build them ships and weapons systems five generations more advanced than the most advanced current technology, and with nothing but woke leftist homos and trannies 'manning' them, and 0bamanoid chicom agents like Austin and Milley giving orders from the Pentagon, they might as well be using log rafts and throwing pointy sticks at our enemies.

Boris Johnson has told world leaders at the start of the COP26 summit that they can no longer afford to delay taking major action to address climate change as he warned 'the longer we fail to act, the worse it gets'. The Prime Minister compared the situation facing the globe to the climax of a James Bond film where the hero has to thwart plans to blow up the planet.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is reporting a new high in the bullying of Muslim children in California public, charter and non-Islamic private schools. In a statewide survey of 708 Muslim students aged 11 to 18 years old, 55% reported “feeling unsafe, unwelcome or uncomfortable at school because of their Muslim identity,” the highest level in five such reports since the biennial study began in 2013, CAIR-CA reported. Hussam Ayloush, head of the civil rights group’s California chapter, told The Washington Times that the results confirm American Muslims have “faced growing challenges due to Islamophobia” in popular culture and public hate crimes during the past 20 years

Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine increases a person's risk of developing rare blood clots, a new study suggests. Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, compared data from the general population before the pandemic to data gathered from reported vaccine side-effects suffered by Americans. They found that a person who received the vaccine was 3.5 times as likely to develop brain blood clots as an average person before the pandemic. Blood clotting, and specifically cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a well known side-effect of the J&J vaccine, and the discovery of this risk was the reason usage of the vaccine was paused in April.

Concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental abilities have gone mainstream. Although the press has largely overlooked Biden’s gaffes, his disastrous performance at a decidedly friendly CNN townhall prompted the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that Biden’s “frequent public confusion about the major issues of the day is a reason for the growing public concern.” Even the notoriously partisan “Saturday Night Live” has started to use Biden’s mental acuity as a punchline. One of the show’s characters has quipped about how “insiders are also saying that, during meetings, President Biden repeatedly uses the f-word in conversation. More concerning, the f-word he keeps using is ‘forget.’”
