War Games. Are contagious.

It seems I was too quick to criticize the Americans for how they spend public funds.

Not to be outdone, last Monday Spain also launched a new battleship, the "Juan Carlos I".

Capable of transporting 1,200 troops, it will be equipped with the normal array of canons and machine guns plus its own anti-missile defence system. It will also double as an aircraft carrier. On the news I heard the Captain mumbling something about humanitarian missions.

Like saving Iraq perhaps.

It cost over 553 million dollars.
