  1. One thing is absolutely certain: The new naval ships being fabricated by Irving will be the most expensive – pound for pound – warships ever built by anyone, anywhere. Furthermore, they will be virtually unarmed, incapable of defending themselves let alone projecting any credible strength. Just look at the Halifax class frigates: they were out of date before they were even launched, and armed with sling shots and BB-guns. I pity the unfortunate sailors foolish enough to volunteer to serve on the new ones.
