Kwanstainia's much touted Aegis system is just another part of the instant coral reef in World War III.
The Navy is good for troop transport but not much else. The idea of the naval vessel as a floating fortress is obsolete. These ships were the wrong idea since the 70's.
The thing now is nuclear cruise missiles, submarines, very high velocity long range bombers like the stealth except as a drone fleet and robots to do most of the fighting. Anybody going into WW3 with any other strategy will be like those Italians charging on horseback with feathered hats into machine gun nests in World War One. They are going to learn fast that this was a great tactic in the last war before it. Completely ridiculous in the next.
