    authorities off the coast of Newfoundland October
    1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of

    Canadians:
    Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South
    to avoid a collision.

    Americans:
    Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the
    North.

    Canadians:
    Negative. You will have to divert your course 15
    degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    Americans:
    This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again,
    divert YOUR course.

    Canadians:
    No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    Americans:
    THIS IS THE CAPTAIN OF THE USS MONTANA THE

    FLEET. I DEMAND THAT
    YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY
    AGAIN,THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER

    THIS SHIP.

    Canadians:
