Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

Another example of environmental hysteria. So she crunched the reef, an isolated event. The world isn't coming to an end and the seas will not dry up nor will the sky fall. Drag her off and sink her. This reef damage thing is asinine, another issue for people with way too much time on their hands figuring out what to moan about next. Chicken Little all over again. I still want to know the particulars of how she managed to get in that spot but we'll probably never really know.
