I'm thinking maybe we need to send all of the missile geeks back to school to learn how to drive a ship.

Well, this accident as well as the Fitzgerald's collision, the USS Lake Champlain's collision, and the grounding of the USS Antietam (all in 2017) have cost Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, 7th Fleet CINC, his job.

Chris, how many accidental dumps of a fire suppression system would it take before you were in the unemployment line? Even if nobody got killed, I doubt if your company would wait for the third or fourth mishap before handing you some walking papers. My bosses in the warranty investigation business love my work, but all it would take would be one big screwup for them to say "Sayonara"!

A culmination of many problems I guess. Listening to FOX news this morning, a former commander from the USS Cole? was saying that the used to go to 16 weeks of AIT training in seamanship, and now they get a dvd to bring onboard their assigned ship and learn on the job. He was also saying a lot of ships went from three lookout's to one, many having multiple tours causing burnout. I guess we will learn soon enough what caused the problem.

“Sir, I have the same questions,” Richardson responded. “It’s very hard to understand with the sophisticated systems onboard these warships that we let a ship get in that close to the point of collision.”
“Don’t we have sailors on the bridge with binoculars anymore?” King asked.
“We do,” Richardson said. “It’s required to have lookouts and we have lookouts on the bridge.”
Part of the problem isn’t the Navy’s ability to see who else is out there, Richardson said, but everyone else’s ability to spot Navy ships.
“Is there some technology that they couldn’t see us?” King asked. “Are we using a stealth technology?................................”
Now we don't?
