It is Unfrigginbelievable that a part of the US national defense will actually assault these marine animals with such unforgiving weapons and act like it is nothing! They act like the Ocean is theirs to use, pollute and abuse! Totally unthinkable!
Isn't there something in the laws about "don't wholesale destroy wildlife" when practicing their defense strategies? Like "don't bomb wildlife reserves"? Or don't set off a nuclear bomb near places that raise food?
Ugh! So stupid, I've got an anxiety attack just thinking about how DUMB this whole idea is!!!

“Agencies aren’t allowed to go into smoky back rooms and figure out what they are and are not going to do,” Henkin says. “They are supposed to put the process out for comment from experts and the public and then make decisions in light of day, hopefully made with the best information and full disclosure." Says it all - Sue their pants off!!!

Thanks for the "heads-up" on this Roseanne !! I've noted this - more people need to know about it ...... There MUST be areas of ocean which can be used safely (or other methods of doing the testing) ..... it's TOTALLY unacceptable that they don't find an alternative to this !!!!!!!!!

My dad served in the Navy for over 20 years, and I think he'd be rolling in his grave to think that this is the way the Navy is "testing" things now! Their recent activities are giving this proud branch of the service a black eye all over the world, and for what?!!!!
