The Navy is entering a new era.

For the first time a Navy ship is hitting the waves with a laser cannon capable sinking patrol boats and destroying surveillance drones. The USS Ponce is headed to the Persian Gulf next year.
 
It might be a bird. It might be a plane. But it wont be the Blue Angels’ planes. 
Sequestration has grounded the Navy’s popular flying team. No more shows for 2013. The Navy said flying would resume when the budget allows.
 
Straight talk from an old friend. 
Former Australian prime minister John Howard backed the United States during the Iraq invasion. Now he’s criticizing how the U.S. ran the country post Saddam Hussein.
He recently echoed old complaints when he said it was a mistake to disband the Iraq army and fire Baath Party members from civil service jobs.
In hindsight, many say those decisions destabilized the country.
For good measure, he added the United States withdrew too many troops from Iraq too soon.
