Fullbore Friday

We've covered the Battle of Tsushima before - but who can say no to this quality cut from the NHK mini-series? If nothing else we can once again see that no one has a better war face than the Japanese.

BTW - the Japanese flagship is still out there.

Now if we can only save the USS OLYMPIA ....

Hat tip CB.

Re: Olympia

George Dewey was one of a handful of Naval Officers to basically never officially retire. But I'm sure he never read Freakonomics, so who cares about him, right?

When the Navy--and it is just a matter of when, not if--allows the Olympia to become razor blades, we will know that it has made its choice--at the end of the day it will support the forces that wish to get back to the year zero, even if just by being cowards and staying silent.

A uniform and level purge across the board of the current three and four star ranks is something that I find hard believing would be disastrous, and have an equally hard time doubting wouldn't be for the overall best.
