    I agree with Tolik, come WWIII, the aircraft carriers will not be all that useful. They help project power in times of peace and in regional conflicts, but if we find ourselves fighting the Chinese or Russians, they’ll quickly enough be on the bottom of the oceans, as will theirs. The real power lies with the submarines.

    Not good 74, not good. The march towards WWIII just keeps getting faster and faster.

    MB,
    Saudi can’t wait or Iran will launch a nuke on them. Everyone is at risk.

    More bad news is that North Korea tested a nuke last night. Registered an earthquake at the testing site. Whatever the NK’s have been building it works. They claim it’s a miniaturized bomb, meaning it’s a warhead. NK and Iran are working together on ballistic missiles, probably nukes as well.

    I don’t fault the Saudi’s at all for looking to match the Iranians, it is just that it adds more to the powder keg that is the MidEast. There are so many potential flash points around the world at this point that it is hard to keep up with all of them.

    I see even subs in trouble and the country with weapons on satellite systems will be able to take out all. I believe Reagen star war system is up there now.

    Free,
    I suppose everyone cheated and put weapons in space, oh well……..I expect to see swarms of drones. Way to many for conventional defenses to be successful against.

    74, if you didn’t already see this article, you really scored a direct hit – spot on!

    U.S. Navy Plans to Fly First Drone Swarm This Summer

    http://defensetech.org/2016/01/04/u-s-navy-plans-to-fly-first-drone-swarm-this-summer/?ESRC=navy-a_160106.nl

    Some of the comments below the article are just plain stupid and represent low-information (and low IQ) readers, but some are very well informed. DoD has been tracking this, apparently quite quietly, since the 80s. It gives an entirely different slant on why FedGov is now requiring the registration of all drones. It ain’t about keeping them out of the flight paths of aircraft, any more than gun control is primarily about the mass murder of kids in elementary schools. It’s about protection through control (somewhat legitimate), but also control of the population. They will KNOW who’s potentially got the capability of watching “them” in neighborhoods, for example. For less than $1000, or not much more, any one of us can have very nice night vision capability – from 1000 feet above our neighborhoods, and watch what’s happening. Right now that may not be necessary in most areas in the US, but down the road ….

    Drones are a big, big deal in all sorts of ways both on “their” side, as well as the citizens’ side (you know, us enemy folks). And of course, as you pointed out, militarily they could be a potential nightmare. Frankly, it’s a bit disconcerting that the US Navy is reportedly only going to fly its first drone swarm this summer. Not exactly proactive!

    Drone swarms wasn’t on my radar at all. I suppose jihadis could use a swarm to terrorize a city too.

    GS,
    I didn’t see that particular article, I read one about a year ago concerning Chinese development of thousands of drones and operators.

    When you accept the idea that this will be part of war suddenly the combinations of weapons that can be employed and how becomes very complicated. If you want to win, a first strike incapacitating the enemy becomes paramount (in my opinion). Defending is nearly impossible without using a broad spectrum method. How do you shoot down a thousand missiles launchef simultaneously, shot from every direction 360 degrees around you? Scotty Shields ON!

    Uh – who was it that hit whose embassy first?!? And Iran is calling the Saudis out? LOL!

    I loved the headline to an article in “The American Thinker”:

    Everything is a ploy and slight of hand. The real move might be under our noses.
