On all the nation's descriptions, isn't defense supposed to be spelled with a s and not a c. Ex. defence???

Considering the creator of NS is Australian, I'd be surprised to see the c/s debate in such words as "defense/defence" to be brought up. :p

You'd better recognise and realise that not everyone spells the same words with the same "colouring," for lack of a better term. Sometimes, people favour their native spelling over a foreign one. ;)
