Whoa …

TOKYO (AP) — A major airport in northern Japan was closed Tuesday after construction workers found an unexploded bomb believed to be from World War II.

All 92 flights in and out of Sendai airport were cancelled after the 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb was uncovered during construction near a runway, local police official Hiroshi Ouchi said. The bomb was identified as American-made and is believed to be a dud from World War II.

Poland-Massacre-Soviet Union-US truth supression-Nader-Nazemi

This of course is well known and anyone with an unbiased review of history knows about, of course mosr Americans wouldn’t know where Poland is even if you pointed at it. This collusion to surpress the truth and collaborate with the Soviets which were no better than the Nazis and their massacre of Ukrainians is an atrocity. The holocaust pales in comparison to what the Soviets did. 
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The American POWs sent secret coded messages to Washington with news of a Soviet atrocity: In 1943 they saw rows of corpses in an advanced state of decay in the Katyn forest, on the western edge of Russia, proof that the killers could not have been the Nazis who had only recently occupied the area.
The testimony about the infamous massacre of Polish officers might have lessened the tragic fate that befell Poland under the Soviets, some scholars believe. Instead, it mysteriously vanished into the heart of American power. The long-held suspicion is that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt didn’t want to anger Josef Stalin, an ally whom the Americans were counting on to defeatGermany and Japan during World War II.
Documents released Monday and seen in advance by The Associated Press lend weight to the belief that suppression within the highest levels of the U.S. government helped cover up Soviet guilt in the killing of some 22,000 Polish officers and other prisoners in the Katyn forest and other locations in 1940.

These ships should be put on display and historic mementos. 

SEATTLE (Reuters) – The world’s first nuclear-powered surface warship, the USS Long Beach, was put up for auction asscrap metal on Tuesday to be dismantled and recycled, after spending the past 17 years mothballed in a naval shipyard inWashington state.
The 720-foot (219-metre) vessel, the first American cruiser since the end of World War Two to be built new from the keel up, boasted the world’s highest bridge and was the last such U.S. vessel with teakwood decks, according to Navy history.

Alan Turning

A great man indeed. May his soul rest in peace.

Alan Turing would have celebrated his 100th birthday on 23 June were he still alive. But the codebreaking genius died in 1954 after consuming cyanide – an act many have linked to his treatment for being a homosexual.

Looking forward to watch the Movie Battleship.

Apparently it is very good.

Spoilers for the movie Battleship ahead.

Spoiler Alert !

What’s the expiration date on a World War II warship? That’s a question raised by the surprising third act in Peter Berg’s new naval actioner Battleship. Desperate for another ship to complete their one last job, our heroes turn to the World War II battleship theUSS Missouri, which has been docked under their noses all along—and start it back up with the help of a few veterans of the Greatest Generation.

We decided to ask the folks from the Missouri Memorial: If faced with such a situation, could we really revive the “Mighty Mo”?

Sure, but it would take about 1,500 men, a boatload of fresh fuel, and a pretty serious restocking of ammo. Well, that or a tugboat. The USS Missouri was finally retired in 1992 and turned from a warship into a museum—just like the one in the movie. Today, it stays docked in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where there is no crew at the ready, nor any ammo or fuel on board.

The USS Missouri was built with four steam turbines and eight Babcock and Wilcox boilers on board, but, as the staff at the Missouri museum told us, these engines have not been used to power or propel the ship since 1992. In fact, the onetime sovereign of the sea now gets its electricity from the shore. On the rare occasions when the USS Missouri does sail the high seas, such as to travel for restoration and repair, it’s usually towed by a tugboat. The production of the movie Battleship was able to capitalize on one such move, at which time Berg and his crew filmed the ship in action (without showing the tugboat).

If fully reloaded and refueled, the ship could become quite a bit more mighty than depicted in Battleship. This is because the Missouri, though it was initially decommissioned after the Korean War, was reactivated by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, and then served in the first Iraq War. During this time it was equipped with eight new armored box launchers for Tomahawk cruise missiles, and four quadruple canister launchers for 16 anti-ship Harpoon Missiles—weapons much more high-tech than the 16-inch gun turrets used in the film. All the Tomahawk launchers and Harpoon canisters remain on board (though they’re all without missiles).

There may be a few old salts out there happy to lend a hand to resuscitate the ship—some of the movie’s veterans were played by actual veterans, including at least one Korean war vet and a World War II veteran in his 90s. But a savvier admiral would recruit those who served on the ship in the 1980s or during Desert Storm, who would have a better knowledge of the ship’s modern accoutrements (and might be bit more spritely besides). A curator for the museum assured Slate that such a crew, “would certainly be able to man and operate the USS Missouri or teach active-service sailors how to operate their battleship, if required to do so.”
