Hi!

I signed the letter too.

Just this past week we have 33 manatees die in Florida because of Red Tide which is caused by pollution runoff.....and environmentalists feel this may be just the beginning.....................

I signed. I remember hearing about these tests a few years ago, then heard they had stopped--how quickly these things are swept under the rug.

I'm sorry, but I just don't buy the "we need it for national defense" argument. This isn't the Cold War anymore. As far as I know, terrorists lack submarines, or the kind of ship that a submarine would be needed to detect. I'd rather see the money and time put into *real* national security--things like better intelligence and ground troops that are well trained and well equipped. Playing with sonar isn't going to help us in Iraq, or prevent another 9/11.

Sonar was required to detect aquatic land mines in the Persian Gulf.
