I just read an AP story about German plans to acquire a new air defense system (MEADS)= 4 billion Euros, and to spend another 3.9 billion Euros on four "multipurpose battleships"...the first to be delivered in 2023. Does the AP know what a battleship is?...or do they really mean a surface combat ship?...and just use "battleship" in a generic way?...maybe something bigger than the Frigates Germany currently has for its surface fleet? Maybe closer to a destroyer?...they are currently building a new class of frigates that are really destroyers in size.

Conflict with the unexpected: two qualities are indispensable; first, an intellect which, even in the midst of this obscurity, is not without some traces of inner light which lead to the truth; second, the courage to follow this faint light. KvC
