    Today the USS McCain collided a merchant vessel, marking the 4th incident in the past year at the Navy. The timeline is as follows: 8/19/2016 — USS Louisiana 5/09/2017 — USS Lake Champlain 6/17/2017 — USS Fitzgerald 8/21/2017 — USS McCain These ships share similarities, they are all based in Yokosuka Naval Base, and the USS McCain & USS Fitzgerald are both part of Destroyer Squadron 15 and the Seventh Fleet. While accidents and mistakes do happen, the number of collisions in the past year is extremely rare, and it is now within the realm of possibility that these accidents were not accidents. Both China and Russia have...

The warning came in reply to a stinging comment, made by Steve Bannon, the US Presidents political adviser earlier this week.
