with the US Navy procurement system. (Army and Air Force too)  This needs to get fixed now.  We are going to have lean budgets ahead.  We can’t afford to continue pouring money down a rat hole.  If this isn’t fixed now, it will eventually cost lives down the road.

There are a bunch of things like this happening, almost none of which get any coverage in the western media.  China is a boiling pot.  It is yet to be seen if it will boil over, and if so, how.

No, I am not talking about the weather.  South Korea firing warning shots at the Russians.  Yeah, what the hell, that is going to end well.

Glad to see the Royal Navy upgrading and expanding their fleet.  One of the few NATO partners who is pulling their weight.

Good news?

Russia, which readers know I think is a impotent force as far as its military goes, has unveiled a new aircraft carrier design.  As the article points out, the design will most likely never be built and Russia’s one and only carrier is out of commission and probably headed for scrapping.  Russia’s 2017 GDP was $1.58 trillion dollars, which is less than Canada’s $1.6 trillion and paltry compared to the USA’s $22 trillion.  Russia simply can’t keep a world class military going, and what they have is simply wasting away.

that maybe the Straight of Hormuz is the new world hot spot, the Chinese do something to bring the focus back to the South China Sea.  It is hideously expensive, but this is why the US needs a world class navy.
