The Americans are not the most intelligent of races for us to to follow.

They made mistakes in Vietnam, we did not follow them there.
They made mistakes in Iraq, we stupidly followed them and look were we are now.

The US CG and their LEDETS also use PC3 Orions to track surface contacts and sub-surface contacts, and get assitance from on station USN platforms and RNLN vessels also!

This isn't just about sweaty latin types on pedalo's. The drug business is a high technology violent enterprise. You have no concept about what your talking about.

Go back to watching repeats of Miami Vice if that makes you feel better.

How can you meander and veer from too many Lt Cdr's to how we choose to enagage in counter narcotics - your mind must have more twists and turns than your bowels.

A most intelligent well-considered response.
Thank you "a high technology violent enterprise" ?Think I'll stick to meandering and veering. Much less convoluted logic to consider.

You know it really isn't worth arguing with Trolls like this guy, they post simply to provoke arguments or pursue their own twisted agendas, so my suggestion is simply to ignore him!

{Equally some of the shore based staff are there for what is now called harmony time, and because they need some desk driving experience to suit them for promotion. Much the same applies to most levels in the services from AB upwards. }

Do not make me Laugh,

Some officer specialisations, 18 months at sea 8-10 years shoreside, that is some good harmony time.

Yes I know some go earlier, but they are understanderbly trying to climb the ladder.

Shore Jobs for Ratings are dissapearing every time we have a review.

Care to elaborate ? - otherwise you're just feeding the village idiot :thumright:
Village Idiot? Harmony Time. Is that what we called a Sods Opera?
 
The really boring thing with Norman is that he doesn't really argue or have a discussion, just makes bold unsiubstantiated statements and then hurls insults at people whilst ignoring what they wrote. As Slim said early on this could be an interesting one, but apart from his 6-1 figure dear old norm hasn't been able to either enlighten us further or back up his claims in any way. Equally his boorish nature discourages any one else from really getting into the discussion.

I suspect some brutish officer dropped on his head when he was young and impressionable.

Arrogant nonsense! It's the civilians ashore in the first place who tell the sailors afloat how things work.
Its the civilians ashore who make all these gadgets we sailors play (and played) with. Is it inconceivable that those civilians who designed and made those pieces of equipment in the first place couldn't instruct our sailors how to use them without the expense of a uniformed privileged body of two and a halfs and above pretending only they can do it.[/quote]

uncleTom/ Norman, whatever - are you a second-rate comedian in disguise. The above statement is quite frankly laughable and supports the general consensus that you are a complete f*ckwit. The only reason I'm responding to your nonsense is because I am currently duty and I'm not sure there is much on TV :thumright:[/quote]" Currently Duty"? Bored are you?
My taxes are clearly well spent knowing they pay for someone who is "currently duty" Safe in your hands?
