And talk about being PC, the US is bringing a helicopter carrier that's 50 or so feet smaller than the French carrier.
According to a US Navy spokesman, "if we brought the 'Carl Vinson' (the full size carrier originally requested) it would dwarf eveything there. It would be considered another example of the US being overbearing, especially by the French."
I thought that having more patience was a result of my getting older. Turns out that I just don't give a sh*t.
