Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Navy Submarines Moving West

Another news item that reflects the Navy's increasing focus on the Pacific.

The Navy will move six more submarines to the Pacific by 2010 while shrinking its Atlantic-based undersea fleet, officials said Monday.
The shift will put 60 percent of the Navy's submarine fleet in the Pacific and 40 percent in the Atlantic. Currently, the submarines are evenly divided between the two oceans.

China, take note.

Update: more gouge on China's submarine and overall defense capability
