To decrepit to fight - Another sign of the decline of The WestDe·crep·it/diˈkrepit/Adjective
1. Worn out or ruined because of age or neglect.
The Toronto Star is reporting that one of the four Victoria-class submarines of the Royal Canadian navy, specifically the HMCS Windsor, has been restricted from making deep depth dives due to --- wait for it --- rust.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the Star is also reporting that the Canadian government is going to do repairs on the cheap -- meaning that combat effectiveness of the Windsor will be far less than 100%.
