My spies repot that the Japanese Empire is violating our mutually agreed upon naval treaties. They are drawing up plans for fast battleships with 16 in guns, 16 in gun battle cruisers, more carriers. Maybe even more smaller ships.
Leaders of the free world are we going to stand idlely by and let them disregard our treaties or shall we modernize existing ships or build new ships to counter this threat. Are we Mice or Men?
Neither, but hamsters would be appropriate. If Japan arms, we would be 'discouraged', we would make 'pronunciamento', We would be 'concerned'.
Frankly, we wouldn't do jack-all, till the political situation allowed for the Vinson plan. Japan can build up a nice fleet without many political repercussions, if they got the balls, and the resources.
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
Yippy Ki Yay.
