A Sign of The Times

The US Navy is way down as well. Less than 1/2 of the Reagan Navy. The world is getting safer!

Absolute BS!! We have many, many Boomers in storage that could more than take up the slack. Add cruise missiles, and a repeating 5" gun, along with a marine contingent, and you have the best blockade vessel in the world. It is undetectable, and with cruise missiles, and a retractable 5" gun, they can easily stop and enforce any blockade possible.

The only thing that would be hard to do, is find enough qualified personnel to man the Boomers.

The writer of that article has no imagination whatsoever. Talk to your son about this and see what he thinks.
