Murdering the Enterprise

>the single most important ship in the largest conflict in human history
>Had a greater influence on the outcome of a major conflict than any other individual ship
>Fought and won almost every battle in the Pacific
>Instrumental to victory at every one of these battles
>The most decorated American ship in its history and the single most famous ship among the American public
>So famous that one of the most popular TV shows of all time took its name for their spaceship
>Sold and broken up for scrap in 1958 while the USS Intrepid, a complete nothingburger shitheap that accomplished nothing during the war and spent most of its time getting repaired from having its ass kicked gets turned into a museum ship

I genuinely and sincerely hope that every single person involved with this decision died painfully and is burning in hell.

    The bald eagle, the us national mascot, was hunted and killed to almost extinction

      >hunted and killed
      No, it nearly went extinct because of DDT, but then we figured out the problem, stopped using DDT, and now the eagles are as common as pigeons. Unlike whatever happens in the shithole you come from, we can actually identify and solve problems. Even the American bison in your photo was bought back from the brink of extinction and today hundreds of thousands of them roam freely.

      If you thirdies could actually make a rational argument from facts people you might stop being thirdies.

        There are around 250,000 bison in the US, of which almost all are livestock. There are only a little over 50,000 wild bison in the US, more than half of those are on tribal land were you will probably not want to see them. Less than 5% of bison are genetically pure. The bison genetic bottleneck is still a real problem, even if there are plenty to see.

        NTA but the fact that raptors (especially eagles and larger hawks) both suffered massive habitat degradation where their populations overlapped with people and were frequently killed in the US for various reasons until the first few decades of the 20th century didn't help either.

    Fact of the matter is that times were different in the 50's where it was all about the future and the past was something to be bulldozed over in favor of a new mall or something. Enterprise would have had to make it into the Seventies before scrapping would have been so politically unacceptable that a home would have been found one way or another. Still, I can't help but feel that a clerk could have hidden her in paperwork for a lot of that time but then again they would have also been invested in the future=good/past=meh of the zeitgeist of the time.

    The Keel from the Enterprise was taken into storage, then melted down into ingots. It is held in reserve for the next ship USS ENTERPRISE, so that the legacy of the ship isn't boomers farting on a museum, but it will always be a ship of war. I'm happy with that.

      Also we have flags, symbols, monuments and physical mementos for a reason. Not all memories can be preserved through oral tradition or photographs. The fact that I actually have to explain this to you should make you embarrassed.

    Intrepid was decommissioned in 1974 and kept in mothball until 1982. Most Essex-class carriers served until late 60's and mid 70's, ships were typically kept around in mothball for another decade until being sold off as scrap or kept as museum.
