So the collective military establishments of the US, Russia, India, China, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Italy, and Japan know less about
military needs than you? Holy Halsey, I thought *my* ego was over-sized.
Personal commentary aside, since you seem convinced that only the US is using our carriers as offensive weapons, can you cite any historical case
where carriers were used in a defensive role and were successful? That's not a 'snark' question, I'm honestly curious, because I can't think of a
single one. As Zaphod points out, *all* aircraft carriers are offensive platforms...any 'defensive' strength they exercise is gained by virtue of
counter-threat (for example, the USN's 'defense' of Midway).
