Remove? then what?
I'm not even surprised that the editor did not even give suggestions on possible replacement for us to be able to keep an outpost there.
It is a betrayal of this old ship’s honor to display it before the whole world as a big fat joke.
That's the only reason he can come up with? The country has been a joke and thats the least of our problems. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that we are supposed to just let it rot.
Thinking about it, since most of the structures has been corroded. Would it be easier to build something sturdier inside the Sierra Madre while it still offers concealment from prying eyes and protection from the elements? Can the existing structure or part of it be used as a "mold" for concrete and we might have something similar to Fort Drum (the one in the PHL not the one in the US).
Anyway, there are already a couple of threads in this forum regarding prefab construction and has been discussed for years.
