    Unthinkable

    Link

    By TOM NEWTON DUNN
    Defence Editor
    BRITISH and French nuclear submarines which collided deep under the Atlantic could have sunk or released deadly radioactivity, it emerged last night.
    The Royal Navy’s HMS Vanguard and the French Navy’s Le Triomphant are both nuclear powered and were carrying nuke missiles.

    Between them they had around 250 sailors on board.

    A senior Navy source said: “The potential consequences are unthinkable. It’s very unlikely there would have been a nuclear explosion.
    Freaking ocean isn't big enough, now the British and French are running into each other.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Since when did France own a nuclear submarine?

    I thought in Civilization whenever you had two units trying to occupy the same space they would either join a group (allies) or they'd blow each other up.... ohhhhh
