I didn't even see the aft flag...Looks like the Oz flag to me.

That black mast may be coated with the radar absorbing stuff they use/d on stealth planes and such.

Also, radar can bounce off whatever it wants, so long as it don't bounce back the receiver, right?

Too much weight to high up. and that tower has too much sail area, they need to take that monstrosity down and replace it with a cage mast for the radar and satellite domes.
Would that depend on where the centerline of the ship (the pivot point, so-to-speak) is in relation to the mass above and/or below it?

Modern warships don't have a very deep draft (the portion below the waterline). The Coast Guard Cutter Confidence has a high superstructure and a light draft, and in a wind from the side she has trouble answering her helm. I have experienced this in Vancouver Bay BC. on our way home from Seattle. We had a beam wind from port and with the starboard propeller deep and the port propeller shallow she wouldn't turn rite or left. Because of the angle of heel she was carrying.

That man hated, and I mean hated, the Japanese until the day he died.

Can't blame him, they probably killed a lot of his buddies and tried to kill him. A lot of people take that shit personally.

When I was a kid the next door neighbour, who had served in the RAF during WW2, would not buy anything made in any of the countries of the 'other side'.
Eventually he succumbed and bought an expensive Japanese colour TV.
He was rather embarrassed by this so removed the label from his old British made TV and placed it over the manufacturer's name on the new TV.
He never bought a German car though.

During all the decades of the Vietnam Wars, there were Vietnamese who fought for independence and self-determination and those who partnered with the various foreign powers who controlled the country and profited from it.
It was the latter group that fled with us and now make up the range of American Vietnamese, from doctors and scientists to merchants to gang members.
The first group are still seeking to realize the old goals.
It has never been easy to know if there is a "better" one.

Yes, Lola Bunny landed in CA at the age of 3. She has been well taught what life was like there but didn't experience much of it, so I think that makes it easier to accept what comes here.
