What people with American Superiority Syndrome forget is that you can have all the technology in the world, but its the calibre of people running the vessels, and their strategies that count.

I agree, just wanted to post an article that put Russia's navy into perspective. It's laughable at best.

If it is WWIII the US Navy will have no problem using Low Frequency Active Sonar, or LFA -- a new extended-range submarine-detection system . It is harmful to marine life, but if it's WWIII you know they will deploy it.

I'm aware of the following nations putting subs inside a US carrier bubble and "sinking" a CVN

From the responses that I have read most of you have no idea how a war would be conducted. It is not ship v ship. We layer our warfighting with ships, aircraft and space based assets. So educate yourselves before making statement to the strengths of our military. It's not like playing Battleship with your bud down the street.
The only way we will lose it will be the same things we experienced fighting war since the 1950's. Groups of anarchists, student activists, yellow press and politicians seeking office by throwing our military under the f'king buss by micromanaging every move HERE AT HOME! If we were beaten it was done by ourselves not Iraq, Russia, China, Viet Nam or North Korea.
