Two More Unemployed Captains

Two US navy vessels have collided in the Strait of Hormuz near Iran, lightly injuring 15 sailors, the US navy said.

A nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Hartford, and amphibious transporter the USS New Orleans collided early on Friday, the US Navy Fifth Fleet said.

As crowded as the oceans are getting, I am not surprised to hear about collisions. However, I am surprised about two US Naval ships colliding. Now, two ships of opposing nations, that's totally not unheard of, considering the number of times navies engage in chicken. Or tag.

So, I figure there had to be a failure in communications. Or the sonar guys were not paying attention. Or the two captains didn't like each other and were playing chicken. If it wasn't for the fact that our former president was one George W. Bush, who managed to break the military, I'd never even consider typing the third option.

Control

Politics is the control of wealth and power. You are being conditioned to condemn politics as petty and boring, thus granting all the more control to the powers that be. You are either a part of the problem or a part of the solution. The choice is yours.
