Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... assault ship, since ... umm ... ???

Since Spanish Soil in Africa is under threat of Invasions that can be seen off by a handful of commandos landed by an inflatable boat dropped off by a fast patrol boat?

Indeed, given the number of tiny African enclaves that Spain claims sovereignty over, the "all the eggs in one basket" approach makes even less sense. A swarm of missile boats with the ability to drop off commando teams would be a far more effective way of maintaining control of a half dozen enclaves on the edges of Morocco.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
