Real Boys' Own stuff. Sigh! also .. but interesting that the present administration has had the realities of sea power explained successfully, can't be easy getting this across to an Arkansas politico (but the USN managed it with Clinton). Our own little thing (QE) utterly outclassed.

The unnamed one commissions after Obama finishes his second term. So I guess she will be USS Barack Hussein Obama or USS George W Bush depending on who gets in in 2016.

Funny how we are fighting today's war with the last war's equipment while our Lords Commissioners are thinking about the next war's equipment. Perhaps because of an unfortunate ingrained culture (among our political masters) of the Forces being "on operations", not "at war".
