Re: British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf

Sad to say but there has not been any 'British naval power' since Maggie Thatcher freed the Falklands.

Nowadays the "blue-water" Royal Navy fleet is small potatoes when its major surface ships includes two aircraft carrier without any fixed-wing aircraft and six guided missile destroyers as the major components.

"Rule, Britannia" was once a might anthem. Today, it is only a pub song if the management will allow it to be sung at all.

And if Obama is reelected, "Anchors Aweigh" and the US Navy will join the Second Rank and Fading Fast Navy Club.

But hey, fear not, campers!  We got Obama's Speaking Power...  on our side!
