We all live in a Dolphin submarine, a Dolphin submarine, a Dolphin submarine.

Israel acquires it’s sixth Dolphin-class sub from Germany for $1 Billion.

A special ministerial committee decided to accept the recommendations of Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who promoted its purchase.  Israel already operates three Dolphins and bought two more from Germany in 2006.

Dedicated to the security of the Jewish state founded in the wake of the Holocaust, Germany had sold those submarines at deep discounts.   But Berlin, beset by budgetary constraints, balked in talks last year at similarly underwriting the sixth Dolphin.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also promoted the deal as per Barak’s recommendations, but military officials were wary – both the former and current IDF chiefs said during official hearings that there was no pressing need to acquire such an expensive piece of equipment.

The objections, however, were based solely on the high price – which is to be paid out of the defense budget – and not on the benefits a sixth submarine could afford the state.

No way.  I don’t believe it.  ‘My people’ paid retail for a sub ?
