The retired aircraft carrier USS America is on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, sunk by the Navy in a series of explosive tests that upset some veterans. No warship this size or larger had ever been sunk, and plans to sink the America caused controversy.

"Not a day goes by that I don't think about it," said Lee McNulty, president of the USS America Foundation, which wanted to turn the ship into a museum. "Of all the carriers, that one should have been saved, just for the name America."

My point was to ask you why you posted such a story in the current events section.

I'm guessing that somehwere in your (could it be a canuckistani?) brain, you derived pleasure from typing the words "America is at the bottom".

I can't think of any other plausible reason.

It has naught to do with Israel, so kindly STFU.

I'm assuming it's because the story is in regard to a current event.

It is relatively newsworthy as it's the largest carrier ever sunk, and RR is well known for posting just about the most random information you can imagine.

Paranoid, much?

when have I ever spoken about killing Arabs?????

you are mistaken. I've spoken about Arab killers.

And let it be noted that it is others who have brought up Israel and Arabs here.

The fevered brains of the left.
