        Okay, here's my 2 cents' worth. Just remember tha I'm not that good
a Gundam fan and that I'm working off what I think is an ideal formation, 'kay?

        Basically, I would like a CV, 1 BB and 2 CAs, accompanyied by 6 ~ 8
DD. That'll give me enough AA/AMS fire in all possible directions
(up/down/left/right/front/back) as well as the punch necessary to fight off
another fleet.

        I remember that, after all, Cima (one of my fav bad gal, does anyone
agree that she's amazingly like Karla of Lodoss War) blew one of them to
bits in the most offhand (and insulting) way possible. =)

        I bet they are. It's either they don't have enough resources to go
after them, or someone was pulling strings with the Feds.. =)
