I am sure there is a good reason for this.
The military has resumed sinking aging warships in the Atlantic ocean ‚Äî¬†for target practice.
Despite environmental concerns and the fact that the price of scrap is high (see last post), I am sure there is a valid reason for this.
The Navy lifted a moratorium on the sinking exercises after reviewing cost requirements, environmental impacts and other benefits.
Targets include vessels that are more than 300 yards long. Thousands of pounds of metal and other materials sent to the deep. The Navy said shooting down the old ships is a great exercise.
I guess that‚Äôs the best reason for this.
