Oh I agree that someone needs to be watching outside for those elusive and hard to see 1000’ long cargo ships. Still, it seems odd to me that the warships don’t have a proximity warning system like aircraft have these days. Meaning I expect that they DO have such a system and then I wonder why it didn’t work? Was it being blinded or tampered with?
Exactly the question many were asking back when the collisions happened.
There were some who felt it was very unlikely both just happened not to work (supporting your Chinese hacking theory).
Or there was partying and sex going on at the time and those who should have been taking care of business were ‘distracted’ for an extended period of time.
Some who currently serve in the Navy have told me that ever since women and homosexuals populated the military, sex and partying are not uncommon at all.
Either one - or both - could be accurate.
