5. Those carriers main mission is not to keep shipping lanes open..
it's to be dispersed in a way that at any given moment these carriers are available to support any military action the CIC finds necessary. Let's face it, America is now the world's only superpower and this has gone to the Pentagon's head. They view the world as theirs, a possession that must be protected from anyone else. We're the neighborhood bully and the Pentagon means to keep it that way no matter what the cost to the American taxpayer. When was the last time the Pentagon's budget was cut, or even frozen for that matter? There's always money in the American coffers for war.
