Wasn't there a song about that many years ago? Bob Hope sang it.

i just think a limpet mine placed on a unarmored ship would/should do more damage.

Had it been placed underwater it most certainly would have done so.

It was a Canadian mine. They are designed not to offend.

Thought I knew most of the moto ezines but this one also does military equipment and reports on recent military events like tankers and drone shoot down. Info seems fairly legit but I don't know who publishes. Sorry if this is old news or already been posted.

"The limpet mine that was used in the attack is distinguishable and it’s also strikingly bearing a resemblance to Iranian mines that have already been publicly displayed in Iranian military parades," Kido told reporters. "There are distinguishing features,"

There are critics that would say its not a duck no matter what the evidence.

There's another US satellite photo on that site that shows the two boats side by side. This tells me they also know where the fast boat returned to. Will be interesting to see what other country's or company's satellites have the same images.

Pretty sure Iran thought the drone was a duck.

Enjoy today's cheap gas. I still think "Hell is coming to breakfast"

I learned to splice film and spool a projector on a beat up copy of that movie in middle school A.V. club
