“both of which are equipped for anti-small boat swarm ops as well as ASW” Sorry to break the news to you sweetie but helos are either equipped for ASW OR anti-surface combatant —- and their is no version of the MH-60 that is equipped for anti-small boats.
Thanks for this post though – it is a great example of the kind of nonsense someone with no actual knowledge or understanding of naval matters posts. That is the only way to explain your glee at the fact that the LCS is armed with a laser guided missile with microscopic range and a microscopic warhead. Sure it works great in perfectly calm seas and with perfect line of sight but it doesn’t exactly pack a punch.
The ability of the LCS to fight off a pack of rowboats is assured — but that is hardly combat. Hence why even the CNO said the LCS isn’t actually meant to go into the littorals and engage in combat.
But hey – just keep dreaming that the only threat to Navy ships is swarm attacks in the littorals. It isn’t true or even close to accurate but if it makes you happy at least you have something.
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
Another point I’d like to make for people worried about a link between high testosterone and prostate cancer is that it just doesn’t make sense. Prostate cancer becomes more prevalent in men as they age, and that’s also when their testosterone levels decline. We almost never see it in men in their peak testosterone years, in their 20s for instance. We know from autopsy studies that 8% of men in their 20s already have tiny prostate cancers, so if testosterone really made prostate cancer grow so rapidly — we used to talk about it like it was pouring gasoline on a fire — we should see some appreciable rate of prostate cancer in men in their 20s. We don’t. So, I’m no longer worried that giving testosterone to men will make their hidden cancer grow, because I’m convinced that it doesn’t happen.
