Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

Navy, Marine Corps Aircraft Strike Libya

Navy, Marine Corps Aircraft Strike Libya

USS Kearsarge appears to be a Harrier carrier!

What I want to know is this - if its the right thing to do to use Harriers off the Kearsarge, which is in effect carrier aircraft, why not bring the whole airwing over from Enterprise, and finish it off.

There are just 6-7 Harriers on the Kearsarge.  Very good aircraft, very good pilots, very good 'punch' they provide, but just those few.  The airwing from Enterprise would've ended this in 24 hours.

This is the limited warfare that the current administration believes in.  You go in to win, or not at all.
