All very dramatic. Now let's just hope that them Navy boys don't crash their big gray war canoe into any objects.

Don't worry about them wrecking it. I'm more concerned about the Navy getting enough qualified civilians, who are too chicken to enlist, to serve on all their great Naval ships. < :-)

i find this quite disturbing. america promotes & urges peace. & they take a building that was destroyed by terrorist & make a WARship. there is still nothing built at ground zero. couldn't they have used some of that steel to restructure a new building ??? not to mention also that as they promote peace they are the number 1 seller of arms worldwide. something wrong here.

“No matter how many times you attack us, we always come back,” Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus said.

That quote is from the above article. Does Washington (and individual Americans) ever wonder why we are attacked in the first place? More than 6 years later, the American Army is still looking for the "dangerous WMD!" that Iraq was sitting on. No wait, that mission has morphed many times and is now... a quagmire. No other country has started or been a part of more wars than America. Impressive.

One more addition to a force that helps make possible the cushy lifestyles so many of us foreigners enjoy in Japan, S Korea and Taiwan, to name but a few nations dependent upon US goodwill.

Peace through superior fire power!! America needs power to put down evil. Point blank, bottom line. WW2 Germany and Japan being prime examples of said evil. Money and steel put to good use.

Terrorists hate you, they intimidate weak minds, through intimidation and violence. Imagine a world without America and her USS New York, oh wait, you would not be free to imagine anything, or whine, if not from the comfort and stability that America provides, free of charge to the world, even the ungrateful saps like you. Your welcome!

Anything that makes the radical left feel even more insucure is OK in my book. If it's a ship, then so be it. But in reality it could be anything and I'd be just as happy.

"Anything that makes the radical left feel even more insucure is OK in my book."

Heh, and lest you forget the flag-waving, chest thumping moments it gives certain radical ight wing Americans to bleat about "goodwill" they actually play no part in!

Meaningless, empty symbolism.

What exactly do they want to do with that shop? While they waste ressources building fancy military hardware, the real-life jihadists are bred right there at home, as the jihad shooting in Fort Hood underlines again.

So stupid.

Intheknow are you sure about that? The US has been in more wars then any other country? I'm sure quite a few european countries and asian countries have been involved in more wars then the US has been. Heck I'm even willing to be several middleeast countries too.
