US Navy Jets Drop Bombs On Great Barrier Reef In Training Mishap (Video)

Actually I have nothing to do with the military. I just think you are over reacting.

US Navy Jets Drop Bombs On Great Barrier Reef In Training Mishap (Video)

you are extremely disturbed by this? sheesh! don't watch the real news then.

Let's see, why are they conducting training in that area? well it's a fairly important part of the world to practice with our allies just in case a pesky little war with China or North Korea breaks out. And it's awfully convenient to fly over the absolutely massive area that is the great barrier reef park because there shouldn't be much out there to disturb, although it seems that some idiot civilians decided to take a boat ride into a bomb range...

Why are you enraged? they dropped several hundred pounds of inert metal into the ocean. While I'm sure that there was some damage done when it actually hit the ground the bombs didn't explode. They are designed not to. Would you rather they waited until they ran out of fuel and crashed the entire airplane into the water?

In the end this is not good but it isn't that big of a deal. Oh and the title to the headline is a hoax. They intentionally wrote it to make you think the bombs went off and blew up the reef, which they clearly did not.
