Mr.Lundquist,

hello,
At first i came to read this post cause I`m always curious about US Navy; not only because it`s one of the bests(which is the best If I don`t hide the thruth as u did), but because I like your country. but as I started to read the context, I was totally disappointed. CAN U PLS REPEAT THE NAME OF AREA YOU STARTED YOUR POST WITH? I hope you have sufficient geographical/historical knowledge to avoid such gaffs! kindly correct your mistake. The name is PERSIAN Gulf and nothing else!!! We are having enough of problems with our devilish goverment which is trying to destroy our culture and replace it with so-called islamic taghts but it won`t give a permition to any one to change a historical name with the one who Arabs like to. I hope u put yourself in my shoes -just for few minutes- to feel what I feel. let`s put benefits/politics and prejudice away and always tell the truth, that`s an unwritten law of free authurs(of-course if u are one).

Cheers,
A ship`s officer
