...you'd think that a better use could have been found for all the steel it takes to build an aircraft carrier.
But no..the navy sank the USS America so they could do some "explosive tests".

Just plain stupid and wasteful, IMO http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050521/ap_on_re_us/carrier_sunk
Well, you can look at it this way. We're so far in debt now with our adventurism, no one yet born will be paying on our new purchases from here on out, because we and our grandchildren will just be covering what we've bought up until now.... :rolleyes: :grinpimp:
