Go Easy, Navy March 19, 2009

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

The Navy ran an expensive cruiser aground near Pearl Harbor. It will cost about $40,000,000 to fix it. [They now say $25,000,000; got a discount.]

Yesterday, a Navy nuclear submarine and a Navy amphibious ship collided in the Straits of Hormuz near Saudi Arabia. 40,000 gallons of oil were spilled, and 15 sailors were injured.

C’mon, Navy. We don’t have half as many ships as we did in the recent past. We can’t waste them playing bumper cars.

While firing the Captain is a good tactic in these cases, it also takes 20 years to make a good Captain, and we are obviously running short of them, too.

It’s good that the technocrat politician, Donald Winter, has finally left the SECNAV job. Let’s put someone good in there before it’s too late.
