Re: [eia] just checking

If Joel's interpretation is accepted one, and reinforcements can only be
made with a fleet at the home nation end, then the only country I see
affected by this (right now) is Spain.  Danny has depots in place in both
Cadiz and Tripoli, but with the fleets at the receiving end, reinforcements
could not be sent to Tripoli this month.
