    - Submarine's internal economy could go into a recession
    - Submarine may have to wait in long lines to refuel
    - Submarine's crew may be taken hostage by Islamic radicals

    Drawbacks: (Smartass Liberal Remarks :P )
    - Budget for USS Reagan may incur large defecits
    - Ships Captain may be unaware of subordinates activities
    - May be utilized in the Strategic Defense Initative

    USS Carter would sink after it allowed a bunch of crazy Cuban criminals to board from the south.
