Nice carrier and all, shame that it didnt stop you from getting your arses kicked out of Vietnam. Some brown people with turbans in Afghanistan are also kicking your arses hard. Meanwhile britain with that little tugboat won its last war - the Falklands.
Just like we won a jungle war in SE Asia against a domestic communist insurgency, while still broke after WW2. The kind of war America would declare "unwinnable" 2 decades later when you fought it with all the money and technology in the world.

The best of the Brits were bled out in WW1 and WW2 leaving only genetically deficient manlets and Jews. Hence the need to import millions of virile Arabs to replenish the gene pool by coupling with fatwhyte English hambeasts.
Thousands of troops are struggling to lose weight, and thousands have been booted out of the service in recent years because they couldn't.
However, one of the biggest worries concerns those not even in uniform yet: Nearly 2 out of 10 men and 4 out of 10 women of recruiting age weigh too much to be eligible, a record number for that age group.
"This is quickly becoming a national security issue for us. The pool of recruits is becoming smaller," said Col. Gaston Bathalon, an Army nutrition expert.
Unless weight rules are relaxed, "we're going to have a harder time fielding an Army," he said.
