#3 Gets worse. Carriers get a refuel and overhaul halfway through their life. The carriers after Lincoln are lined up for the same. Delay Lincoln and you delay their overhauls as well. It's a domino effect. Now you might be able to stretch this out a little, but continue to delay Lincoln and at some point you won' be down one carrier, you'll be down two.

WILL BE STRONG; IFF THE US IS WEAK, CHINA ETAL. WILL BE WEAK.
