Shane was right. You ain't right
And you're just now realizing this? Welcome to the parade Albert.
One of the main problems is that we've been wasting our best in Iraq and Afghanistan. Fighting these wars that drag on and on are enervating and don't allow our forces to recover train and become better.
This isn't a condemnation of our policies at this moment but just an accounting of cost.
Fired the 7th fleet commander. I think it's the right call.
I agree, what shocked me was this has kind of become a commonplace. This wasn't the first time.
The captain of the ship should be gone too.
Or maybe the Chief Maintenance Officer.
"The guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain may have suffered a loss of steering prior to its collision with a merchant tanker near Singapore on Monday, a U.S. Navy official told CNN.
The USS John S. McCain was transiting to Singapore for a routine port visit when it collided with the Liberian-flagged tanker Alnic MC at approximately 6:24 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Aug. 21 while east of the Straits of Malacca. The Navy said Tuesday that some of the remains of the ten missing sailors have been located inside the ship as an international search continues near the site of the collision.
Citing a U.S. Navy official, CNN reported late Monday that John S. McCain had suffered a “steering failure” prior to the collision. Earlier in the day CNN reported that “there were indications the destroyer experienced a loss of steering right before the collision, but steering had been regained afterward,” according to a second Navy source.
After the collision, McCain arrived at Singapore’s Changi Naval Base Monday afternoon under its own power."
I imagine they have back up to support this.
I like ships that don't crash
Well, the ship was named John McCain. It was no hero
