I do so humbly apologise for upsetting your delicate sensibilites.
Its just that we live in the real world. Not a fantasy where someone or something is invincible.

Looks like I stirred a Hornets nest up here, my own personal thoughts are that if a War went live between the US and Russia you could bet your hard earned tax dollars there would be casualties on both sides and ultimately both Parties would not want to lose all of their main assets on the seas. Once the initial flare up subsided the above water assets would be returning to protect their respective Countries own sovereign assets and would with high speed head home to port.
You would see the actual truth by what items would be protected by Government Owned Military Assets and they would be the Corporate interest's like Oil Rigs and Refineries.

If the United States is so weak, why doesn't anyone attack instead of talk? It's because we would destroy them if they did.

In Todays Technological World , the Carrier has gone the way of the Battleship . The Highest Ground in War is now Space , and you can rest Assured the Russians nor the Chinese have taken Full Advantage of that in a Militaristic Sense that the U.S. has .

What a load of crap, the us navy will never be defeated even if it comes down to a bunch of rednecks rowing to Siberia to burn that mother down.
We have 300 probably 400 million guns and are just waiting for t time to set it off, so try and dock your russian navy on our coast and watch out for the pitchfire catapults.
The only way to even sink one of our carriers is to detonate a nuke 100 feet off its deck or two right under it.
