Supreme Court Saves the Navy

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the use of sonar by the U.S. Navy in training exercises in the case of Winter v. National Resources Defense Council. Environmentalists more concerned about marine safety than national security believed that whales were harmed by the sonar use, although that argument, like most environmental arguments, is debatable at best. Imagine how our sailors might have been harmed if they were not allowed to execute these exercises and had to go into battle without proper training. Of course that line of thinking would require recognition of the opposite viewpoint, not a trait many greenies possess.
