"It's cheaper to fly an aircraft from an aircraft carrier than from the shore"

Possibly true, but only in specific circumstances, and foreign FOBs cost us nothing when we are not using them; a carrier costs (massively) just to sit there.

That aside, the Admiral seems to want to deal with the situation as handed by his political masters - a good model for his colleages in the other Services.
