4. Since we are probably the only ones with a significant naval force
you are probably correct.

5. USN at its smallest since BEFORE the First World War. So, we don't...

2. Not sure, but I think the percentage of inspected cargo is even lower
than 10%. :-(

China can inspect all of their cargo, but the US can't? :wtf:

6. Sounds like a job for the TSA!
They can make all of the sailors on ships in & out of N. Korea take off their shoes. ;-)

And no uranium in carry-on bags!
