wow what a terrible thing... and this must be where the crap they been finding in the Great Lake Superior been coming from, they found a bunch of un-exploded ammunition and warheads... guess what they said about it? That's ok... and I believe they re-sunk the stuff...and then Governor Walker got approval for doing that sound barrier blasting in the Lakes.... which everyone wants BANNED ..he gets APPROVED within the past few month ago... yes ... Not joking here people... Wisconsin Governor is hell-bent to destroy land, water, and animals and the American People are letting him do it... its driving me and the Ojibwa tribe absolutely insane wondering ?? why??

There is a stretch in the Georgia Straight between Vancouver Is and the BC mainland where the Canadian government allows (or at least did) the US navy to do practice bombing runs and firing exercises. I am assuming that some of these were live fire exercises as people were told to stay out of the area during such times. I have often wondered how much unexploded munitions etc are at the bottom of the Straight and what the affects are on marine life. This is an area where sports fishers go.

Signed. Actually SINKEX is just over 50 years old, started in the 1960s, although I am not sure if it had the same name. The problem now is that most of the ships now being decommissioned are actually worth more as scrap metal than they were when built. And of course the current 2003 version is another W Bush gift to the environment, not a big surprise considering that as Gov. of TX he increased the legal limit for dioxin dumped into air and water every year and I do believe he did it as President.

Why do a country has to be always afraid of an attack (terrorist or not) coming from outside; and preparing for that attack? If you are a good neighbor, you don't have to be afraid of your neighbors. I think...
