The carrier used to be a flagship for innovation in the military. Humanity always built its wars around who had the shiniest toys and who could
use them better in the struggle to have no shiny toys at all. Now, we have the value of a distributed computer network with a global reach, the
important part of a carrier was its ability to carry force to almost anywhere in the globe.
It's not that this weapon is overblown in capabilities, but it is often brought up as scandalous evidence of the impropriety of our traditional MIC.
It's not, the NATO forces that could be threatened by this technology are so large and have already innovated Carriers to what seems to be a peak of
technological innovation that's only a branch of a larger communication network that represents their flagship of innovation.
The internet could be the tool used to cheapen aircraft-killing technologies so that it could be produced cheaply enough that you have an assured shot
to taking out all the American carriers at once. You have that fact in their face, it's not going to fly, the internet and associated globalized
forces that assert that the money traveling through China and out of China are the same as the money that flows in and out of every nation.
The paradigm shift you see happening in geopolitics is that to reduce the cost of deploying and monitoring the new flagship weapon of distributed and
generalized computing power, America had to share it but without the implications of the full sovereignty that other weapons systems often came from.
Your internet service provider could be a communist, loose lips sink ships.
