even though that is "old news" it still sux to hear something like that (considering I'm also on a carrier). After what I've seen and heard 1st hand, I wonder how much of that is an "accident" on our part, and how much of it we really let happen? I say this only because I watched our ship go into the Gulf "taunting" the Iranians and letting them get w/in a stones throw of our ship.... scared the sh*t out of us, but from what I understand, we did it to more or less see if they would hold up to their word or not (at the time it was they would attack ANY American war ship going into the Gulf.) I dunno, but part of feels like it's more politics than anything.
