You just can't make this stuff up

Unbelievable!!!

New $4 billion USS Zumwalt breaks down again, needs tow through Panama Canal. This is the super Stealth Destroyer that shoots $800K bullets. By the way, not so stealthy, there's a picture and I can clearly see it. Duh!

Our great Military and Navy can kick any bodies arse, if we can get towed to the area of conflict. Maybe we need to build a stealth towboat to tow the stealth destroyer around.

Could be worse! At least we are not looking at pictures of the Iranians holding the crew at gunpoint.

Count your blessings.

Send it back to the Kimber Mothership! They have great customer service.


Am I the only one that thinks that is one ugly and weird looking ship.

That's what makes it so stealth...engines are not running.

The Zumwalt is one ugly ship.
It has straight lines, flat surfaces, and is made of composite.
The thing's a damned GLOCK!

One of Obama's brain storms. The only thing it does well is point its bow to Mecca 3 times a day if it can pinpoint the exact location by GPS.

Many of the ship's features were originally developed under the DD21 program ("21st Century Destroyer"). In 2001, Congress cut the DD-21 program by half as part of the SC21 program. To save it, the acquisition program was renamed as DD(X) and heavily reworked. The initial funding allocation for DDG-1000 was included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2007

That was under the George Bush reign. But nice attempted bash on Obama.

Nope, if it were a Glock it would work.
