the headline says ¨SEA MINE¨ and they later go onto confirming that it was a Bomb. I´m not a pedant (I am a bit actually) but it is time to start holding these news writers to account.

The way the modern army is going I can see that catching on.
Things have moved on since "someone" painted 432's in what would have , at first glance, appeared to be DPM cock shapes.
