by Skip November 3, 2013

“…the near-elimination of piracy was a major accomplishment of the two centuries of British/American naval dominance…” Although it was more of a generalized one than that below, I did make the case during the Prez Primary with a very strong Ron Paul supporter that a strong Navy did have a definite role to play with […]
