US Navy offers assistance after Great Barrier Reef bomb drop
Reuters: The US Navy offered Australia any help it wanted to retrieve 4 bombs mistakenly dropped inside the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef marine park last week.
US Navy Harrier fighter jets were forced to drop the bombs, 2 inert and 2 carrying explosives but not armed, after civilian boats were spotted near their original target.

What. The hell.
That awkward moment when you accidentally almost blow up the Great Barrier Reef. My country rocks.
Goddammit America, this is what happens when you try to police the world. Knock it off already.
