There president has murdered 4000 drug takers in the last four months.The president him self, has said he throws them in the ocean. Not drug dealers, just drug takers. Why would USA support or help a country that has such draconian laws.?? Get out, get out now. He also said, he will never buy war machines from USA again,(because there so expensive)

America needs to find a cheaper way to get new weapons into production. Countries(like the Philippines have woken up. You guys charge a premium for weapons that are not premium)

Washington (AFP) - America's newest warship, the super high-tech USS Zumwalt, broke down in the Panama Canal just a few weeks after the vessel was commissioned, the Navy and reports said Tuesday.

The guided missile destroyer, whose stealth capabilities give it a strikingly angular shape, needed to be towed Monday to a nearby former US naval station after suffering an "engineering casualty," the US Naval Institute's news site reported.

The Zumwalt was en route from Baltimore, where she was commissioned October 15, to San Diego.

Navy spokesman Commander Ryan Perry said in a statement that "the timeline for repairs is being determined now."

My guided missile destroyer terrorized the Tonkin Gulf and all armaments were plainly exposed.

Admiral Zumwalt was Chief of Naval Operations when I was in the Navy who started his famous Z-Grams which officers hated and enlisted men loved.

What a complete piece of shit. I wonder who's going to lose their career over this stupid decision to build these ships.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Just plain silly to make a tri-hull when a single hull has worked for countless millennia. It must run on JP-5 but what is flank speed? Flank speed on my destroyer was 34 knots over the water but including the bottom of the ocean and adding currents into the equation would make 40 knots and no smoke but put a rooster tail thirty feet in the air.
Thanks from Generaloberst

I think they wanted a futuristic looking ship because FUCK YOU. Didn't they order like 40 of these shit piles and then cancelled the order for all but the ones that had already begun construction? Like what kind of autism leads to this?

I suspect they have super powerful electronic devices in Zumwalt and that is why the superstructure is covered up. Bringing back a lot memories including range gate stealing. If the purpose is stealth then that is not a fair fight and fight like knights without fear of retribution.

What did you do in the Navy? I'm actually looking to enlist into the Armed Forces after I graduate and it's a toss up between the Army and the Navy.

And, I suppose it is but what an ugly fucking thing.
