Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

Interestingly enough if a foreign military vessel struck say....the reefs off Florida or in Hawaii your panties would be all in a bunch but...The response by the DNR, Park service, Coast Guard, PETA, WWF, general populace, etc. would be overwhelming.

When it comes to taking responsibility for ones actions...and it is not in YOUR backyard well definitely then it is not a problem.......

So they want money.

You'll never see anyone limp so much as the driver of a 20 yr old beater after being hit by a brand new Mercedes.

They also want people with at least half a brain to pilot ships.
