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.

Israel Navy Active in Gaza Anti-terrorist Operations

I wish we were doing more of this....

“Defense News” reports that the Israel Navy has become an active partner in the IDF’s urban warfare campaign against Palestinian terrorism originating in densely populated cities in the Gaza Strip. In future, the Navy will carry out targeted eliminations in the way as the Israel Air Force.

“Defense News” says the Navy’s role in the IDF’s ground and air operations in the Gaza Strip will be expanded. Previously, the Navy carried out a supplementary operational role, mostly intelligence gathering and rapid response from the sea. The Navy will fill an integral role in multi-layered combined sensor systems, and naval guns will provide interlinked artillery coverage of the northern Gaza Strip.
