That terminated a massive amount of wildlife well done USA destroying the environment to ensure there ships can survive in case they have to withstand a huge blast so they can deliver their own devastation. USA paying lip service to the environmental changes they’re prepared to make, same with all the governments the world over sorry planet the human race is really crap. Hope you can recover once the human race is extinct.

Terrible. They didn't spare a thought for the marine life. If you just had to repair the ship anyway, then why create a blast away from the ship, that doesn't even touch the ship, but kills marine life all around the area, and then decide - oh we're going to repair it anyway. Ughhh

Great for the sea life and environmentπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ. There goes climate change. Never mind just make sure you use paper straws and recycle and please go vegan, as the USA just blew up a crap load of fish.

Destruction of wildlife aside... how sad is it to think of the money that was spent on this and what it could have been used for instead? So many homeless, starving people across the country could have had houses built and food in their bellies. Or if you're one of these that doesn't think they deserve it... think of the parks or community centres that could have been built to improve communities. So sad that this takes priority over any of that.

I wonder how much that cost in total to carry out and how much marine life was destroyed. The USA think they can do what they like, when they like and where they like.

I am speechless. Must have destroyed so much wildlife and what a colossal waste of money. Best of all somebody shouts 'praise the lord' at the end.
