Re: Another Navy ship collision. 10 "missing"

As the gCaptain article says, both ships will be found to blame. It's curious that the destroyer was hit on the port aft side. Without further knowledge of maneuvering, this suggests the destroyer was stand-on, as they approached each other. Still, you have to get that last few hundred feet out of the way, if the giveway isn't giving way.

In the end, I don't believe in coincidences. Something is up.
