    are MORE than adequate for the job, and they present a much smaller target for land-to-sea missiles, such as the Sunburn.

    We are now set up to lose a Carrier Task Force in the Gulf, at enormous expense in gold and human life, and the response will have to be overwhelmingly disproportionate, irrational and widening of the conflict.

    We must get these sitting ducks out of the water and find other ways to do what we NEED to do, not what our Military Defense Contractors WANT us to do for their own profit. Its not profiting the US economy or National Security to have thousands of men and billions of hardware sitting near conflict zones waiting for the inevitable.

    We are still fighting WW2, and the world has moved on.
