Bringing this topic back up eh? Always a good debate.
I'm on the fence about the whole thing. The whole recommissioning then decommissioning thing is stupid. Either keep them in service and continue developing their technology to make them more useful or take them out of service. We spent a good amount on money and resources to bring them back in the 80's, they should have kept them in service longer and made it worth while. Today they could be shelling Somalia, take that pirates! lol
