    Looks like full sails ahead in this Iraq war?

    All indications say so, and the call up of reserves is almost a nail on, hopefully, Saddam's coffin.

    Looks like it's February after all.

    Bye, Saddam, was nice... well, it actually never was nice, and like Omar and others, I hope the Iraqis get a reprieve.

    Probably being deployed experimentally.

    Washington, D.C. (Dec. 13, 2002) -- The Remote Minehunting System (RMS) is an organic, off-board mine reconnaissance system that will offer carrier battle group ships an effective defense against mines by using an unmanned remote vehicle. RMS is being designed for installation aboard Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. Current plans call for RMS to be first installed aboard the destroyer USS Pinckney (DDG 91) in 2004.

    pretty cool, but what do they mean by "organic"?

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Organic in this instance means part of the battle fleet or ship. A weapon that is organic rather than only assigned to mine warfare vessels.
