Re: North Korea going Ballistic!!

How easy it seems to condition people to actually think the unthinkable and except the fact that we may just side into a situation where its acceptable to once again use nuclear weapons on millions of people, surely the Americans and Chinese between them can solve this by other methods. The Chinese ...

Re: (USS) Fitzgerald 0 v cargo ship 1

Luckily I was never involved in a collision at sea or on the river, its got to be either human error or a mechanical failure, I'm not sure what the visibility was at the time but both ships would be fitted with good radar equipment (they used to train us about how to avoid "Radar assisted collisions...

Re: North Korea going Ballistic!!

They would have been monitoring the warships for a good while, they would probably send a destroyer out simply to record the radar and acoustic hand print of these particular ships for future information, the English channel is an open waterway for all ships to come and go as they please in peacetime.

Re: North Korea going Ballistic!!
