    "We will shoot your azz?"

    Amphibious Assault Vessel USS Wasp is getting underway in Port Everglades headed for sea. They have twice broadcast a Securite to the effect "Vessel is in a Naval Vessel Protection Zone. Anyone violating the Zone will be subject to arrest and other unfortunate circumstances". I don't think I want to find out what the "other unfortunate circumstances" are. The whole port is closed while the Wasp moves anyway and little Harbor Patrol boats are zipping everywhere with bow mounted machine guns, manned, not normally seen on them.

    It's a screen cap from a webcam. I usually check it in the morning over coffee. Apparently the weather sucks there today. They also pipe in the audio feed from their VHF radio which is how I heard the securite call. Yeah, I think it's a nice looking ship too. The Ticonderoga class Aegis cruiser USS Gettysburg left just before her without much fanfare.
