the carrier runs on diesel  fuel , it 's a 40+ year old design , at most they are making fools of themselves ,  it cant stay in the waters for very long ------either , you need to refuel the ship , the planes , every day ----------it takes a lot of time , and while it does stop  to be refueled  , it's a sitting duck ---

 

Think back to the cruising range on diesel engined war ships of WWII. You'd run out of food before Bunker C. This carrier is about the same displacement as an Iowa Class battleship (USS Missouri was one of four in this class built). The Missouri could cruise between 15,000 NM at 15 knots.
