    Sometimes it really sucks being the good guys and watching the bad guys build up, knowing at some point they will strike you.

    But then again I just know they are building those subs out of peace, love, and understanding.

    Yeah, well ....while China considers us Public Enemy #!, we still honor them with a 'favored nation" status trade-wise. We'll ignore them like we do everyone else until they blow up something of ours.

    As far as submarines adn the people who man them go, my hat's off to anyone who has the stones to ride around in a tin cigar hundreds of feet under the ocean. I've seen and been in some hairy stuff before, but I break out in a sweat just thinking about getting into one of those things.

    But they got gooooood chow. Much better than the LST or LKA or LPD. Never rode a carrier, heard they had good chow as well.

    About stones......... yeah. What he said.

    I rode LPDs and LHDs. Forunately, I missed the LST's. :mm:

    You think that carrier's big until you try to get your three miles in topside, or you're stuck on it in a combat box indefinitely.

    But if those get hit the surface is DOWN, not 600 feet UP!
