    THE PENTAGON – The Navy will buy the first of its Future Surface Combatants in 2023 – a large warship that will be built to support the Arleigh Burke Flight III combat system and will pull elements from the Arleigh Burke-class (DDG-51) and Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) destroyer designs.

    The combatant – not dubbed a cruiser, and potentially not dubbed a destroyer either – will be bigger and more expensive than the Arleigh Burke Flight III design and will have more room to grow into for decades to come, the director of surface warfare (OPNAV N96) told USNI News today.

    Whoever controls the Sea will dominate the world and its major trade ... the basic Mistake the Islamic Empire did which leads to their downfall was not to advance their Naval forces ..

    The US is hella broke. Democrats are taking back everything in 2020. Expect huge military funding cuts.

    Kindly read history of dollar. What it was supposed to be when introduced as world currency then what it becomes after second world war and what happens in 1970s when US defaulted on dollar.

    There is a reason US want control over all oil industry all over the world no matter if the cost is killing of millions of people in Iraq, Syria, Libya.

    It is a reason there is ban on trading Oil in anything other than dollar.

    The statements I made are not out of thin air but based on detailed understanding of world economy, finance, trade and politics.

    That too not from some anti american articles but I have gone through history and historical records of more than a century.

    Considering electric cars are going to be taking over our roads soon I'm not sure what the purpose of taking over the world oil industry is going to accomplish.
