Do you think the United States is really going to withdraw from Afghanistan in July 2011?

Here’s how Ackerman began his report: “Anyone who thinks the United States is really going to withdraw from Afghanistan in July 2011 needs to come to this giant air base an hour away from Kabul. There’s construction everywhere. It’s exactly what you wouldn’t expect from a transient presence.” The old Russian base, long a hub for U.S. military (and imprisonment) activities in that country is now, as he describes it, a giant construction site and its main drag, Disney Drive, a massive traffic pile-up. (“If the Navy could figure out a way to bring a littoral-combat ship to a landlocked country, it would idle on Disney.”) Its flight line is packed with planes -- “C-17s, Predators, F-16s, F-15s, MC-12 passenger planes” -- and Bagram, he concludes, “is starting to feel like a dynamic exurb before the housing bubble burst.”
Answer: Read the history of almost any country the US has ever had troops in, and only in rare cases do we ever pull our completely. This is to say that especially in this region as Israel need us in a position to give immediate aid in case they decide to invade or bomb another nation, and it also gives them an emergency landing area. This includes Iraq, as we will still have over 50k troops left after the so-called pull out

Do national weather services provide reasonable value?

Recent questions about the UK Met Office and NOAA have impugned the value of the data and services they provide. They do cost a lot of money--the National Weather Service (the weather forecasting branch of NOAA) has an annual budget of about 1 billion dollars. For comparison, the annual budget for the littoral combat ship is about 1.3 billion dollars. Would more American lives be lost by eliminating the National Weather Service, or the littoral combat ship? Is there really any doubt that weather services provide more value for money spent than does the military? One of the reasons I chose to compare with defense is that it is something which virtually everyone feels is a duty of a federal government, but one which I think very few people think seriously about what its for. While there is a terrorism threat to the US and a nuclear threat, there is virtually no conventional military threat to the US. Lets face it, even mighty Nazi Germany could not cross the English Channel, no one will fight an ordinary war in US soil. So the conventional military (the Army, much of the Navy and the Marines) is for projecting power overseas, not for protecting the US. Nevertheless, Americans die almost every day due to weather events at home. As usual Rio, I have no idea what you are talking about.
Answer: I check the weather about every day. I look up radar when I think an intense storm may be around. 1 billion dollars expense, 300 million Americans, my share is around $3 a year. Worth it to me.

Does the Navy itself conduct any research pertaining to such fields as chemistry or physics?

I am a DEP recruit in the Nuclear Field. I intend on applying for the STA-21 program whilst in Nuclear Power School. I have looked at the different major programs you are allowed to partake in at the different universities I hope to attend during my time in the STA-21 program. I have always loved physics and chemistry, and wish to study these fields intensely throughout my life and career in the Navy. However, is life as a Nuclear Officer, either on board a sub or aircraft carrier, conducive to this aspiration? The two major programs of which I am interested are Chemical Engineering and Physics. How does the Navy directly apply these fields if they even do so? I have always thought that any engineering or research was conducted by private contractors such as Lockheed-Martin (Designer of the new Littoral combat ships).
Answer: Physics will help you to understand what's going on inside the reactor. It's nice but not necessary. To answer your headline question, not really. Mainly, the Navy has DARPA doing the research, or civilian agencies. There is a small amount of research done by the Navy, but the emphatic word is small. As a Nuke, you will be far more involved in doing admin work and worrying about mechanical and electrical things than doing chemistry or physics work.

What military programs do you think Obama will attack?

I think he will try to shut down the littoral combat ship program and i only pray that he doesnt touch the Ford Class carrier program or the F-22 program. Also, will Obama attack our gun rights? does he know gun control is proven not to work over and over again? I didnt vote for him i dont like him but as long as he doesnt mess with these and a few other things i wont have a problem with him...
Answer: I hear Obama is going to make it so only the (combat) military member gets full benefits for free, No more free rides for those who are dependents. It is stupid for taxpayers to support the entire family of those who do not have combat positions. Why should "G.I.JOE the potato-peeler " be entitled to raise a family with full benefits, just because he is in the service? Health care, Housing,education, recreation, for "Joe's family" living on military bases will be ended. It is time to "cut out the pork", so why not start with the biggest pigs? I know a yeoman in the Navy. She joined in 1982 to escape the small town she lived in, she was a real tramp and her reputation forced her to leave town. She had no skills, so the Navy taught her to type and file. She got married w/in 1st 6months. She had 4 children and a dependent husband. She never saw sea duty and was stationed as an active duty (TAR) in reserve centers for over 20 years. She never saw combat, never served on a ship, and was moved to 5 different bases. All of her children were born with serious medical conditions and all had dangerous Breach,face down births by caesaren section. Each delivery cost taxpayers over 200K, which included over 7 days in ICU for babies and mother. Each child has had over 50k worth of health care benefits per year. Her Husband is a civilian and makes over 300k per year, yet none of this is ever spent on Housing, health care any of the benefits she got. Her annual average pay w/all above included = 300k (for a secretary) . This is pork ! I think all non-combat military should pay for their families health care and housing.

Why is the newest combat ship being tested for the Navy called Littoral?

Littoral means of the shore, or between high and low tide.
Answer: You pretty much summed it up yourself by saying it means close to the shore. Thats exactly what the ship is designed to do. The ships use waterjets instead of propellers and rudders and have much shallower drafts than previous ships, which allows them to wade closer to shores. This change is to allow Navy warships to pursue pirates at a faster speed and further toward the land, as pirates primarily use speedboats which are faster and can get to land much more easily than destroyers.

Costly Lesson on How Not to Build a Navy Ship

With the crack of a Champagne bottle against its bow, the newly minted Navy warship, bedecked with bunting, slid sideways into the Menominee River in Wisconsin with a titanic splash. Moments before the launching on Sept. 23, 2006, Adm. Mike Mullen, the chief of naval operations, told the festive crowd of shipbuilders, politicians and Navy brass - Navys suspended shipbuilding program is emblematic of what military experts say are profound shortcomings in Pentagons acquisitions system; while spending has risen to highest point since Reagan years, budget and schedule have often been sacrificed; Government Accountability Office audit shows that 95 projects were delayed and cost 26 percent more than original projection; Freedom was first of new class of versatile high-speed combat vessels designed to operate in coastal waters; launched officially on Sept 23, 2006, ship is far from finished; experts say design of coastal ships was doomed from inception, as it is based on high-speed commercial ferry; cite changing requirements, unrealistic cost estimates and production schedules compounded by companies eager to win contracts and fondness for commercial technologies that often prove unsuitable for specialized military projects; policy of letting contractors take lead in managing weapons programs has coincided with shortage of government engineers trained to oversee complex enterprises; examination of coastal ship projects turns up serious problem of adhering to design that was shown to be impractical and contractor Lockheeds decision to abandon normal sequence of shipbuilding; photos; chart shows problems of ships in construction by Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics (L) - By PHILIP TAUBMAN

Is this bad to the bone or what? Click on the picture! http://www.baynews9.com/content/36/2009/10/22/536621.html By DAVID SHARP BATH, Maine (AP) -- The Navys need for speed is being answered by a pair of warships that have reached freeway speeds during testing at sea. Independence, a 418-foot warship built in Alabama, boasts a top speed in excess of 45 knots, or about 52 mph, and sustained 44 knots for four hours during builder trials that wrapped up this month off the Gulf Coast. The 378-foot Freedom, a ship built in Wisconsin by a competing defense contractor, has put up similar numbers. Both versions of the Littoral Combat Ship use powerful diesel engines, as well as gas turbines for extra speed. They use steerable waterjets instead of propellers and rudders and have shallower drafts than conventional warships, letting them zoom close to shore. The ships, better able to chase down pirates, have been fast-tracked because the Navy wants vessels that can operate in coastal, or littoral, waters. Freedom is due to be deployed next year, two years ahead of schedule. http://www.baynews9.com/content/36/2009/10/22/536621.html http://www.wsbtv.com/news/21389626/detail.html More Pics http://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/navy-s-newest-warships-169263.html Hey Cody I hear they cost about the same as a couple of Pelosis Turtle Tunnels lol!

What differentiates the two designs of the USN Littoral Combat Ship?


Answer: The U.S. Navy commissioned two contractor teams (lead by Lockheed Martin & General Dynamics) to design and build its new Littoral combat ships (LCS). The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is a key element of the Navy's plan to address asymmetric threats. Intended to operate in the littoral zone of the globe (close to shore), the ship will be fast, highly maneuverable and geared to supporting mine detection/elimination, anti-submarine warfare and surface warfare, particularly against small surface craft. The ship will have a variety of mission modules to be changed out depending on the nature of each assignment. Although the LM and GD ships share some design characteristics, such as combination gas/diesel power plants, there are some very noticeable differences. The General Dynamics LCS for example, features a unique trimaran hull for navigating the shallower waters of the littoral zone. Each of these meet the performance requirements of the top-level requirements documents and achieve objective levels in several key performance parameters. Both designs achieve sprint speeds of over 40 knots as well as long-range transit distances of over 3,500 miles. The sea frames of each design can accommodate the equipment and crews of the focus mission packages and effectively launch and recover and control the vehicles for extended periods of time in required sea states. The methods by which they launch and recover both aircraft and waterborne craft are different in the two designs, and the treatment of re-configurable internal volume in the two ships are quite different.
