My Heart's Just Not In It
Normally, I like nothing better than ripping apart idiotic articles in the MSM about submarines. Tonight, though, I saw one that was so simplistic that I feel it would be overkill to tear it apart. Plus, NewsMax isn't really an MSM outlet. I will say that they are technically right when they say that "military experts opine that Iran has up to six Russian-built SSK or SSI Kilo-class diesel submarines prowling the Gulf." "Exactly three" could be included in "up to six", I suppose; the writer apparently mistakenly thought that the 2-3 tiny SSIs they have are also considered Kilos (probably because he seems to have copied exactly the language used in a French report from last year).
Anyway, if any of you other sub-bloggers want to mock and belittle the writer, go to town... As for me, I'll just settle with laughing at CBS News for calling Subase New London a "Trident Submarine Base" in this report about illegal immigrants working on a base housing overhaul.
