        Probably. lol
        these ships will be “a large patrol ship WHEC 719 Boutwell from the US Coast Guard (in service since 1968, scheduled to be decommissioned in early 2016)
        and the Melville hydrographic vessel, (the vessel was built in 1969 by order of the US Navy as T-AGOR 14, and since then it has been operated by the Scripps Institute on a permanent freight basis, it is also planned to be decommissioned in 2016, it was actually discontinued in 2014) ” .

      Yes, he pushes them his old aid ships, and you're right to buy an ally against China.

      O this great Filipino fleet, the storm of the seas ... Allies still need to be fed so that they remain allied.
      I wonder how this will affect the economy of the Philippines? Two not new American ships, this is not a dozen hotels on the coast.

      79 Lyam dollars, for the largest country receiving naval assistance. Is it on a solarium, so that a leaky trough reaches Phillipin?

    I read the headline and thought about the Black Sea Fleet of Ukraine ... I thought again the Americans are pushing inflatable mud laughingAnd everything turned out to be much worse ... ships of a retirement age. As everything was thought out, the ships were deducted from the balance sheet with a profit and pretended to think about the allies.

      Ukraine also urgently needs a decommissioned American trough to buy nuts for it for the rest of its life.

      So it’s also necessary to give presents with crews, and regularly transfer money for maintenance. And send a platoon of footprints from the FBI so that this money would not be pulled away. wassat

    And Berks of the first series. A 2-3 EM and 5-6 frigates, will put Ukroflot among the strongest in the Black Sea theater. Germany will "give" 2-3 pcs. 209. The infrastructure is there, the personnel - in bulk. the truth will be against the gypsies (Romanians) and the Turks.

    Of course, it’s clear that for free and vinegar is sweet, but it’s been known for a long time that America most often offers hemorrhoids under humanitarian aid! Then it turns out that it was cheaper not to take it.

    They have their own interest. About the same as the Middle East. Constant tension on the western border, plus the "incomprehensible" status of Crimea .. It's more abruptly than oil ..
    For Russia, it means keeping a large combat-ready contingent in the west, constant exercises, sanctions, and it is also worth a lot to "chop off" Ukraine from the CSTO. All this will come out in a round "pretty penny" .. Plus maintenance of ships, modernization .. for the states there are some advantages. Not only Jews to "help"
