    waste of money, wars between major nations are fought economically now, not with weapons

    As long as she does not let it go to her head,
    Or allow others to influence her future, she may well enjoy her new status .

    Medium cost to this large nation; not profligate. But who is the enemy - USA?
    The diesel subs represent a flea-bite against major nations (2 in maint., 2 on patrol/ 3 in maint., 1 on patrol more likely).
    Useful against drug cartel runners? Probably not.
    So, who is the enemy?
