McCain Torpedoed By Incompetence And Stupidity
Sorry, folks, I meant this one, the USS John McCain , not Senator Braintumor McCrazy:
Many aboard are dead and missing. Prayers for the families, of course.
Because this exemplar of the most nimble and agile ship in any fleet got hit by a tanker (and the entire conn crew was apparently working with a severe handicap, mentally).
But the Metaphor Prize Committee has met, and announced we have a winner.
Say, Navy, how's that Diverse, Gender-fluid Crew(tm) thingie working out for youse?
More collisions and deaths in a year than we had in the past twenty?
Even back when the Soviets were ramming our ships?
And that whole one-serving-admiral-per-commissioned-ship policy is paying vast dividends as well, huh?
Note to CNO: If our fleet is ever attacked by an enemy equipped with nothing but tankers and freighters, you guys are in a world of shit, huh?
You might want to have a Coastie cutter tag along with the capital ships when deployed, for lifeguard duty.
Otherwise, you might consider going back to being a fucking military navy, just for the novelty.
