    I heard something about mysterious subs off the coast of Okinawa--they were guessing Chinese.

    battle ready by Christmas/New Year's... we only get half the time for the yards as other carriers in the states do.

    like our motto is, we're the 911 carrier,
    "whatever, whenever, where ever"

    i'd be honored to go to war alongside the japanese, they're pretty effective.

    Nato, I'm working on you. You are all TOO EAGER to go off to war. I have sensed about you a real compassion for your fellow man and that is a really wonderful gift. Don't sell yourself short that fighting is the only solution to all the wrongs going on. You can always win the fight when you have the bigger guns.........but always remember that "persuasion is better than force". Its kinder and longer lasting. We get "set up" to believe that trouncing the enemy is a glorious victory and that dying for a cause is worthy. I say who are they kidding.....LIVING for a cause is worthy.

    I know you are committed to your ideas, but keep your mind open to new possibilites and be there for us in the future. Please

    Thank you.

    It is not eagerness to go off to war but a sense of resolve. There are just some folks and countries in the world we cannot really discuss and find agreement with. They are so anthema to our values, our interests and our needs that they are direct threats to us and our allies. China and N. Korea are two such governments. The Chinese have been threatening and bullying Japan for the past decade now. The Japanese have finally had enough and are rallying to defend their nation and I am proud to serve alongside them, whether we will be at war with China or we're assisting counter terrorism efforts in Asia.

    At this point, the Chinese only understand force. We talk to them, but they continue to torture, imprison and execute political dissidents. We talk to them, but they only continue to rattle sabers in Asia. We talk to them, but they continue to ignore the most basic human rights of the majority of their people. Perhaps, one day, these times will change, but I suspect China will only get much worse before there is much improvement.

    Dying for a cause is worthy only if dying is the only choice. Dying for a cause just to achieve honor is foolish, yes.

    The goal is to survive so you can continue to fight and struggle for the cause.
