    I hope the US Congress can get it’s act together and approve some kind of action. They’ve been needing a Ice Breaker for decades now, they’re almost down to 1 ship while other nations are building theirs without bottle necks. Foolish.

    the navy needs frigates, icebreakers, tankers, AK’s, amphibs, light carrier with the new catapult and arresting systems that take up less room. What we are seeing is too many high price ticket items. Is vanity causing all this by pushing common sense aside. Sensor systems, armament cost money. A balance needs to be found
