I just LOVE to watch a clear case of National Stupidity caused by the national beverage.    S13

I can only take about fifteen minutes of this at a time, at the very most.  So I keep it open and slowly make my way through it all, in order to retain control of myself, or I'm liable to lose my arse from laughing so hard.    S3

Well, if a Famous Actor says something, shouldn't we all listen?

Surface combat vessels are going to be things of the past before we're all dead.

The ship may not have been equipped with a close-in weapon system for defense against anti-ship missiles. I doubt a western warship would be vulnerable to a similar attack as its crew and officers are better motivated and trained. The ship shouldn't have been transiting so close to land and, most important, why wasn't the missile picked up by both radar and lookouts?

BINGO!  That is the real problem.  That ship was turned over to a bunch of Arabs, who are,......you know "Driving while Arab".  And Arabs do what Arabs do worst: no knowledge about how to soldier or sailor.  All that matters to them is that they be a "warrior", which is only good in a "one on one" situation. That's why Rome was able to defeat the entire world, or close to it, because they knew how to "soldier" well.

How much would you like to bet that all the necessary equipment, which could have easily prevented what occurred, was either stripped off, or just left there to gather rust, OR delegated to someone with "Craniao-Rectal Displacement Disorder"?  

Any takers?  And are there any takers that surface combat vessels are actually going to be a thing of the past?  Gah

Bicycle,

CWIS would be useless if they can program these missiles to act like the hellfire does. Find the ship and come straight down on it.

I don't think radar is that good myself to locate and direct fire against a missile.

My son's ship had an Iranian jet fly directly over him so close he could see the markings and we did not see it on radar and that's with our Aegis system where the radar of ships is tied together in the task force.

You have to figure these are old, low grade trash weapons, these are terrorists operating them. Modern states will have better ones.

They almost hit 2 US vessels a day or 2 later and we bombed their radar installation. Imagine tying radar to an AWACs type orbiting vessel or a satellite, the accuracy will be devastating and the reach long.

I was on the flag deck of a destroyer escort when an F-18 flew alongside it, what I'll never forget is that it smelled like a kerosene space heater.

That's basically what jet fuel really is........kerosene. Or so I've been told.

Kerosene doesn't smell. It is the scent added to hydrocarbons that produces the odor.
