2 of 5 Destroyers Involved In Fukushima, Now Almost Sunk, With Large Life Losses

Conspiracy theory anyone?

Some have speculated that the US Navy is intentionally trying to sink these ships that they cannot decontaminate.

It sure is statistically improbable that this is just coincident.

I suggest the cognitive abilities are affected by long term exposure to radiation, and this is increasing rate of accidents.

also noted the this new accident, the John McCain, had just challenged China last week by sailing close to one of China's newly built military islands.


"10 US Navy sailors missing after destroyer collides with merchant ship"

On June 17, the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship off the coast of Japan. That collision resulted in the deaths of seven US sailors. The Fitzgerald will be transported to the US for repairs. 
On May 9, the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain was struck by a small fishing boat off the Korean Peninsula.
And in late January, the guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam ran aground while trying to anchor in Tokyo Bay. Authorities at Yokosuka Naval Base said the Antietam remains out of action.
The official contingent of Operation Tomodachi,    The US Navy participation in radiation polluted air and water off of Fukushima immediately after the Triple Melt Down. 
stock here -- in a quick internet search, I could not find evidence that Lake Champlain or Antietam participating directly in Tomodachii, Although all 4 ships with accidents were reported to have been based at Yokosuka Japan.

A summary of Destroyers in Japan, Fukushima, and Accidents

Military experts said the latest incident calls into question the Navy's training and will likely lead to a serious shake-up among the Navy's leadership.
"I can almost guarantee you that there will be a tumultuous shake up in the senior leadership of at least the 7th Fleet and maybe the Navy in general," CNN military analyst Rick Francona said.
"The Navy is not looking good about now, especially when we need those ... Aegis-equipped ships for possible ballistic missile defense in a North Korean scenario," he added.
In a report on the Fitzgerald collision released just last week, the Navy said it would review its training and qualification procedures.
"The collision was avoidable and both ships demonstrated poor seamanship. Within Fitzgerald, flawed watch stander teamwork and inadequate leadership contributed to the collision," a 7th Fleet statement said.

Oil tanker 'three times bigger'

Carl Schuster, a former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center, said the oil tanker would have been at least three times bigger than the USS John S. McCain.
"Oil tankers are huge and it takes miles for them to change course," he said.
"When you're going into a congested channel, you're supposed to be very alert, track ships around you to a very meticulous degree."
The Malacca Strait, which runs between Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, is the world's second busiest waterway according to the World Economic Forum. The collision took place in waters to the east of the Malacca Strait, US authorities said.
At a press conference Monday afternoon, Malaysian authorities said both ships were heading toward Singapore from the South China Sea when the collision occurred. They described the area as very busy, with some 80,000 ships passing through it every year.
Both ships should have reported in to what the Malaysian authorities called a maritime "traffic separation scheme," essentially air traffic control for ships.
The tanker Alnic MC
Francona said no matter what the tanker did, the faster, more-nimble US destroyer should have been able to avoid a collision.
"How does a state-of-the-art Navy destroyer equipped with multiple radar systems and communications gear with a full bridge watch not see, detect and evade a 30,000 ton slow-moving (10 knots) behemoth?" Francona asked.

Search and rescue

A US Navy official told CNN the McCain had experienced a loss of steering before the collision, but that steering had been regained.
Merchant marine websites describe the Alnic MC as a 30,000-ton, 600-foot-long oil tanker flying a Liberian flag.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said the Alnic sustained damage to a tank at its bow, about seven meters (23 feet) above the waterline. No one was injured on the tanker, it said, and no oil spill was reported.
The McCain is named for the father and grandfather of US Sen. John McCain. Both of McCain's relatives were US Navy admirals. The senator was a captain in the US Navy.
The vessel is 505 feet long and displaces about 9,000 tons.

Guess what the USS Fitzgerald and the USS Mcstain have in common????? Anybody anybody????
They were both part of operation Tomodachi. Coincidense????
Google US navy aims to sink radioactive fleet and see if you can connect the dots.

    Well Surprise Surprise Surprise , all four ships were part of operation Tomodachi.
    For all of you who think the Navy doesn't know those ships are turning our sailors into hot pockets I suggest you research Navy atomic test during the 50s and the. Of course there's this little BIG ASS HINT from KOMO news in Seattle.
    Even sailors who joined the 7th Fleet immediately after Operation Tomodachi say they were affected. "I was on board the USS Germantown," said former sailor Thomas McCants, who joined the 7th Fleet as a gunner's mate right after the Japanese mission of mercy.

    An earlier article by

    "Will the fourth "crash" be considered an unlucky accident or coinicidence as well?"
    FIFY - maybe?
    Ran across another collision reference on Breitbart which sounds similar but may just be "accidental". Anyone hear about the USS Lake Champlain collision in May near South Korea?
    It's a Ticonderoga-class cruiser instead of a Arleigh Burke-class destroyer but still uses Aegis. Interestingly from the USNI article it was hit on the port side amid ship.



    1. That's an interesting theory. I have an alternate theory, though, based on the findings of the ship that ran into the fishing boat. It was reported that the ship was on autopilot when it collided with the boat. Were the others also on auto pilot? If they were, were these accidents caused by hackers?

      1. Understood, it is possible. But other anti-collision and incoming threat detection systems should be alerted and caused a human response, or an automatic response (back to the hacked theory on that).

        I got a full operational tour on a destroyer, they can see a quarter at 250 miles out in space.

    2. The sailors were exposed to many carcinogens, including buring oil from the Chiba oil refinery. The radiation doses to sailors involved in Operation Tomadachi was shown to be benign if that. Furthermore, a nuclear powered ship would well have the best radiation monitoring devices to detect radiation and each sailor is required to wear a Thermoluminescent Dosimeter (TLD) that would record their dose if any. Antinukes continue to make hay over this because they want to play on people's emotions that the USG doesnt care about its sailors. Far from the truth. Conspiracy nuts like ratfarmers (Enenews regulars) like to pontificate their theories but when the rubber hits the road, cant prove their claims. Im sure the courts will side with the claimants for the political reasons, yet favorable claims dont equate to accurate science or even causality. The fact that LNT is being assailed has nothing to do with insensitivity but to the needless amount of resources spent on protecting the public against deminimus radiation doses when the natural fact of life has a much higher source term. These "no safe dosers" continue to get it wrong. They wont drink a gallon of bleach, but will have no issues wading in a swimming pool. Our DNA has a tolerance and repair mechanism that can handle chronic low doses. You dont see 100 year olds throwing up with acute radiation syndrome as if they were exposed to 1 Sv (100 rem). A microsv/hr dose is nothing to cry to Mom over, yet many seem to think its just as dangerous as 1 Sv/hr which isnt really dangerous if you are in the area for 5 min. Time, distance, shielding, source term. Those are the components of dose at a target.

      1. Tomodachi sailors rad exposure "benign" ??? Dude. You are such a bad troll. Tell that to the sailors whose lives totally tossed and the children born with defects and the families grieving for their loss. It's disgusting that you would take to lying about the sailors' exposures.

      2. The truth be told, its not from radiation. Not a troll. Doctorate in nuclear science and rad effects in accident is professional speciality. I have the creds and game. All you have is junk science and a flawed ideology. You cant silence knowledge.

      3. Really? So, what's your scientific evidence that the radiation the sailors was exposed to was benign?

      4. My resource on my view is the fact that the sailors exhibit serious and deadly health effects since 311. Are you saying their health issues are due to some other event because the Fukushima radiation that hit them was benign? (according to you).

      5. Low doses do not cause acute radiation syndrome. 70 years of travking Hiroshima/Nagasaki victims, young at the time, noe very old.

        Whatever they are experiencing isnt from radiation. Hundrrds of carcinogens possible. Radiation in eeak doses wont cause acute radiation syndrome. Look up LD50 doses. Its at least 500 rad. Your sourcez arent certified health pbysicists.probably antinuclear claptrap.
