Our impressive military

And in the unintentional hilarity department – or perhaps in the “Yes! The U.S. military is the best in the world!” department:

The USS New York set out down the Mississippi River from the Northrop Grumman shipyard in Louisiana, where it was build out of steel from the World Trade Center. The USS New York is a Navy assault ship, 684 feet long. It carries a800 Marines and its flight deck can land helicopters and MV-22 Osprey, a really scary-looking vertical take-off plane. Pretty impressive, h uh?

According to the A.P., the ship was “guarded” on its trip by a Coast Guard speedboat and a helicopter.
