    How quickly things can change. Personally I didn't see China as a serious threat for another 5-10 years, but their choice. I think I was mistaken:

    Risky business indeed--but I gotta wonder. Is this the old "find someone else to hate besides the Govt" ploy? Internal matters there haven't been all that peachy.

    Well now everybody knows why they're rushing to get us back out to sea and patrolling around the region :thup:

    Heh, that was the plan. Now its make ready at best possible speed for deployment ASAP... probably 2-4 weeks and we'll be back out to sea. We just have to get all these ultra important repairs and upgrades finished... then we start patrolling the fringes of freedom like this :bat:
