Thank you, sir!

Some more info has emerged:

Quote:
26 Jul 1945

Her Task Force was attacked by 2 "Val" suicides (Mitsubishi type 99 dive-bombers): one was shot down by escort carrier Ameer and the second by Sussex.
However, this latter one bounced on the surface of the sea and impacted the cruiser's hull above the waterline, causing a 2 metre dent.
Later in the same day Sussex downed another aircraft.

There is no mention of an explosion so effective anti-aircraft fire and a large slice of good luck seem to have saved the day.

Nothing like a fat slice of luck.

With sprinkles.

Well yeah, but that doesn't help. People with delusions of invincibility are the most dangerous.
If Kim Fatty the Third or Tiny Hands starts shit, and are squashed like a bug 35 seconds later, that doesn't necessarily stop the shit he started. Think of the military like a huge boulder on the side of a hill with one little chock to keep it there. Some asshole pulls that chock and stopping that boulder once it's in motion is a Herculean task.

You're disagreeing with someone agreeing with you.

I'm just saying the only reason he "ain't scairt" is "'cuz he's bug nuts". Any sane person would be scairt.

I'm not disagreeing, I'm reiterating that makes him worse.

Similar to Kim. I expect his generals know that a war would be a disaster for them, but who's going to tell him?
