US Navy Suspends Operations Globally- USS John S McCain 10 Sailors Dead

Gaping Hole in USS John S McCain- 10 Sailors Lost
Updating : USS John S. McCain Collides with Merchant Vessel- 10 Sailors Missing

NYT's
WASHINGTON — United States Navy ships worldwide will suspend operations for a day or two this week to examine basic seamanship and teamwork following the second collision of a Navy destroyer and larger commercial ship in two months, the top naval officer said Monday.

The officer, Adm. John Richardson, the chief of naval operations, said he had ordered two major actions after the collision between the destroyer John S. McCain and an oil tanker early Monday off the coast of Singapore that left 10 sailors missing and five injured.

First, Admiral Richardson said he had ordered an “operational pause” for Navy fleet commanders to review within the week teamwork, safety, seamanship and other “fundamentals.” During that time, commanders will suspend ship operations for a day or two. Second, the admiral said he had ordered a broader, monthslong review to examine the specific situation in the western Pacific, where the Navy has suffered four major ship accidents since February.

“That gives great cause for concern that there’s something out there that we’re not getting at,” Admiral Richardson told reporters at the Pentagon.

At 5:24 a.m. local time, before dawn broke, the destroyer collided with the Alnic MC, a 600-foot vessel that transports oil and chemicals, the Navy said. The destroyer was damaged near the rear on its port, or left-hand, side.

More than half a day after the crash, 10 sailors on the ship remained unaccounted for. Five others were injured, none with life-threatening conditions, a Navy official said. Ships with the Singaporean and Malaysian navies and helicopters from the assault ship America were rushing to search for survivors.

Families of the ship’s crew members waited through the night in the United States, hoping for news of their loved ones.

The collision occurred in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, a narrow waterway of strategic significance connecting the Indian Ocean with the South China Sea, where Beijing has been challenging American naval dominance. It immediately raised questions about the training and safety record of Navy ships, coming just two months after another Navy destroyer, the Fitzgerald, collided with a freighter off Japan, killing seven American sailors.

“Clearly this is an annus horribilis for the U.S. Navy,” said Euan Graham, the director of the International Security Program at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, Australia.

Kirk Patterson, a former dean of the Japan campus of Temple University who has crossed the Pacific in a sailboat and circumnavigated Japan, said the collision was “really hard to understand with all the technology that’s out there in the world on a boat, especially a naval destroyer that’s supposed to be the best in the world.”
For a destroyer to be hit by an oil tanker would be “like an F1 sports car and a garbage truck,” he said. “Which one is going to be able to avoid the collision? An F1 racing car equipped with state-of-the-art missiles.”
A destroyer going through a difficult a passage like the Strait of Malacca would typically have half a dozen sailors, including two officers, on the bridge watching for the lights of other ships, (that didn't happen) said retired Navy Capt. Bernard D. Cole, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University and professor emeritus at the National War College.

In such clogged traffic, it would also be common for the commanding officer or the executive officer, the two most senior officers on board, to be on the bridge,(doubtful they were) he said. There would also be a navigator and other enlisted men in the combat information center scanning radar.

I don’t think this ship was carrying much of anything from it's appearance. And the media isn't mentioning the load weight either

Coming hot on the heels of USS Fitzgerald leadership being 'kicked to the curb'

USS Fitzgerald Commanding Officers (Guilty) Relieved of Duties

Another F1 race car that hit a garbage can!
There are still other posts on the Fitzgerald
 We've been talking electronic warfare in the previous post comments- It's possible, but the human factor is a huge problem. If electronic warfare is occurring then eyes and hands on deck are utterly necessary

This over reliance on technology is detrimental to us all. I also suspect arrogance is a huge factor. Over inflated entitlement and ego on the part of US/Britannia - ruling the seas
Also- The US Navy negligence/carelessness makes then both a nuisance and a danger on the seas.
Think about if this ship had been carrying oil or chemicals? Ecological disaster.

USS John S. McCain Collides with Merchant Vessel- 10 Sailors Missing


It seems obvious the US Navy has some problems. 2nd Destroyer Collision in about 2 Months!
I have just posted the news that the Captain and senior officers of the USS Fitzgerald were guilty and relieved of duties-  An expected outcome.

 hattip Gordon!
I think this is more non-sence to bulk up the airwaves with to keep people from seeing what is actually happening . Just a thought.. By the way What is it that keeps American Destroyers from seeing and avoiding 30,000 tonne freighters... http://tass.com/defense/961126

    over dependence on electronics and no use of common sense and physical observation?

    Even if the computers didn't work, from my reading the people/sailors should be observing at all times
    clearly that isn't happening
    as for Antifa- it's being done to create a perception amongst the masses

Now let's read about the USS John McCain

WASHINGTON, August 21. /TASS/. Five people were injured and 10 reported missing after a US Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with a merchant vessel early on Monday to the east of Singapore, the Navy 7th Fleet said in its statement.

According to the statement the USS John S. McCain "was transiting to a routine port visit in Singapore," when it collided with the merchant vessel Alnic MC east of the Straits of Malacca and Singapore.

Damage to the USS John McCain

Fox News
American, Singaporean and Malaysian armed forces on Monday are searching for 10 U.S. sailors missing after an early-morning collision between a Navy destroyer and a tanker near Singapore--the second collision involving a Navy ship in the Asia-Pacific region in two months.

"There are currently 10 Sailors missing and five injured," the Navy 7th Fleet reported. "The ship is currently sailing under its own power and heading to port."

"Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft," the statement said. "Search and rescue efforts are underway in coordination with local authorities."

"In addition to tug boats out of Singapore, Republic of Singapore Navy Fearless-class patrol ships RSS Gallant, RSS Resilience, RSN helicopters and Police Coast Guard vessel Basking Shark are currently in the area to render assistance," the statement added.
Alnic MC is a 600-foot oil and chemical tanker.

From earlier the USS Fitzgerald news above and the Quebec City Antifa rampage- meme wars for perception management

Antifa Attacks: Quebec City & THE BATTLE OF THE MIND CONTROL MEMES

USS Fitzgerald Commanding Officers (Guilty) Relieved of Duties

By U.S. 7th Fleet Public Affairs

YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) -- The commanding officer, executive officer and command master chief of the guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) were relieved of their duties by Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, Commander, 7th Fleet Aug, 18.

Additionally, a number of officer and enlisted watch standers were held accountable.

The determinations were made following a thorough review of the facts and circumstances leading up to the June 17 collision between Fitzgerald and the merchant vessel ACX Crystal.

The collision was avoidable and both ships demonstrated poor seamanship. Within Fitzgerald, flawed watch stander teamwork and inadequate leadership contributed to the collision that claimed the lives of seven Fitzgerald Sailors, injured three more and damaged both ships.

With absolute accountability for the safe navigation of Fitzgerald, Cmdr. Bryce Benson was relieved due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead. He had previously been temporarily relieved of his duties due to medical reasons from injuries sustained during the collision. Benson is being reassigned to Naval District Washington at the Washington Navy Yard, where he will have access to medical facilities in the area.

Inadequate leadership by the executive officer, Cmdr. Sean Babbitt, and command master chief, Master Chief

Petty Officer Brice Baldwin, contributed to the lack of watch stander preparedness and readiness that was evident in the events leading up to the collision.

Several junior officers were relieved of their duties due to poor seamanship and flawed teamwork as bridge and combat information center watch standers. Additional administrative actions were taken against members of both watch teams.

Cmdr. Garret Miller will assume command from Fitzgerald's acting commanding officer, Cmdr. John "Jack" Fay sometime mid-to-late-August.

It was also evident from this review that the entire Fitzgerald crew demonstrated real toughness that night. Following the collision these Sailors responded with urgency, determination and creativity to save their ship. Their rigorous damage control efforts and dauntless fighting in the immediate wake of the accident prevented further loss of life.

Antifa Attacks: Quebec City & THE BATTLE OF THE MIND CONTROL MEMES

Flashback: Charlottesville, Virginia: The Three Ring Circus Show with Grand Finale
"A colour revolution fomented via identity politics? Sure looks that way!
Oh. Canada. We'll get ours too.....
And so it begins.... 

antifascists that act exactly like fascists.... imagine that Canada?
antifascists vs  'far right' aka 'nazis' aka haters (however that's defined?)

The original CTV news story has been edited- what I have below is as originally reported 

Here is the politically corrected version
And the media happily sells the perception management to the masses
Original reporting highlighted in blue

THE BATTLE OF THE MIND CONTROL MEMES

Police have declared a far-right rally and associated anti-fascist counter-demonstrations in Quebec City illegal due to violence and vandalism.
CTV Montreal’s Rob Lurie reports that the anti-fascist group set off fireworks, lit a garbage can on fire, and threw bottles at police, who declared the gathering illegal.
Things getting very out of control. Anti-fascist protest with throwing chairs, bottles at Police
— Rob Lurie (@RLurieCTV) August 20, 2017 The opposition protest comes on the heels of last week’s violent white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., which at least two Quebecers attended.
La Meute, which called itself anti-illegal immigration group,  organized the Quebec City demonstration. It says it does not discriminate based on race.

Even in the revamped version it is clear Antifa was the promoter of violence

Clearly Antifa ensured a lawful protest, here in Canada, was shut down!
Antifa serves the elites- this cannot be doubted. It's too obvious!

Recall my prognosticating about Trudeau when he was elected?

October 2015- Canada Saw Red

Trudeau will divide this country, same as Harper did, just in a different manner.

We will suffocate under political correctness. We already did under Harper, but, it will get so much worse under Trudeau. Free speech will be further restricted

It was so easy to see coming. So very easy. It just required a bit of attention.
Here it is Canada. Just as I stated nearly two years ago 

Another image of Antifa in action- Quebec

 Antifa = Black Bloc rebrand? 

It always seemed Black Bloc served an elitist agenda. We're they in need of a rebrand?
It seems so.

Terrorism in Siberia? Fake Suicide Belts and Multiple Stabbings..

Curiously, but, not coincidentally, this attack in Siberia is extremely similar to the second incident in Spain, yesterday. Fake suicide belts and stabbings.
An aside. But a rather important one: 

‘Europe is lost’: Barcelona’s chief rabbi urges Jews to move to Israel

“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel,” Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen said in an interview with Jewish news agency JTA.

“This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than later.

Weaponized migration to Europe looks to be good for Israel’s expansionist agenda, no?
Barbara Spectre anyone?

 Onto Siberia:

Siberian Times
The  man wielding a knife and wearing a mock suicide belt was named as Artur Gadzhiev, 19, originally from Dagestan, in the Caucasus.
Dagestan. That brings to mind the Boston bombing suspects: The Dagestan connection
 "the two brothers implicated in the deadly Boston Marathon bombing, lived briefly in Dagestan before coming to the United States"
Back to Siberia:
Law enforcement officials were checking whether the incident was a terrorism related attack.

The man appeared to strike out randomly at passers-by in central Surgut.

All the victims are alive, but two are reported to be in a grave condition.

Gadzhiev's name was published by Mash, a media seen as close to law enforcement sources.

He was from Khasavyurt town, and it was unclear why he was in Surgut.

He was reported to be a supporter of Zenit St Petersburg and Manchester United football clubs.

The same media earlier published the name Bobichel Abdurakhmanov, 23,  with links to Central Asia as being the identity of the dead knifeman.

There did not appear to be a man of this name in Surgut.

Gadzhiev's father Lametulakh was reported to be registered with police as an extremist and supporter of radical Islamic religion.
Some sources said there were more victims, up to 15, with reports of incidents in several parts of the city. 

There were also unconfirmed claims that the attacker had accomplices.

The attack came at around 11.20am on Saturday in the city, in western Siberia's Khanty-Mansi autonomous region, some 2,100 km east of Moscow.
Initially there was information that there were two attackers and one of them fled.

Later officials said the attacker was alone.

'A man was running along the main streets stabbing people", TASS reported.

The Investigative Committee said the attacker was 'liquidated'.


Daesh claims responsibility

Which tells us nothing at all. Could have been or not.

US to Remain In Syrian “Kurdistan” For Decades After ISIS is “Defeated”

Ignoring the show in Spain presently, though I am sorry to read of the loss of life- The tragedies inflicted on us all by the psycho elites have got to be seen for what they are. State sponsored terrorism. Plain and simple.Yes, I'm aware there has been a second "attack"

In plain talk: US to REMAIN in ethnically cleansed/illegally/criminally annexed portion of Syria- permanently. As the regional remake continues on.  If you have read here for the past 3- 4 years you would be aware this was the plan. It was not a happenstance or a random occurrence.

If you read elsewhere you would have believed the Kurdish militias were:

1- allies of Assad

2- the best fighters against ISIS

And you would have been 

3- played for a fool

Regional remake. Creating a weaponized refugee outflow. Creating an Israel 2.0 for the benefit of Israel 1.0. Accessing water and energy resources for purposes of  total control. And profit.
All in plain site.

US special operations forces in Syrian Kurdistan, May 25, 2016


QAMISHLO, Syrian Kurdistan,— One of Washington’s main allies in their fight against the Islamic State (IS) in Syria says US forces will remain in Syrian Kurdistan, the country’s north, long after the jihadists are defeated. Enduring ties with the Kurdish dominated region is said to be a goal of the US.

 The US has a “strategic interest” in staying in the region, SDF spokesman Telal Selo told Reuters.
 “They have a strategy policy for decades to come. There will be military, economic and political agreements in the long term between the leadership of the northern areas (of Syria) and the US administration,” Selo said.
 Last month, the head of the YPG said the US had established seven military bases in areas of Syrian Kurdistan controlled by the SDF or YPG. This includes a major airbase near Kobani, a Kurdish town(?) that borders Turkey. They have also supported the SDF with artillery, airstrikes and special forces on the ground.
That's how you ethnically cleanse- artillery airstrikes and special forces
And you use chemical weapons too!

The SDF spokesman explained what he believes the US presence in this region will ultimately lead to:
“The Americans have strategic interests here after the end of Daesh,” Selo said, using the Arabic pejorative term for IS.
“They (recently) referred to the possibility of securing an area to prepare for a military airport. These are the beginnings – they’re not giving support just to leave. America is not providing all this support for free,” Selo said, according to Reuters.
“Maybe there could be an alternative to their base in Turkey,” Selo said, in reference to the Incirlik Air Base.

An alternative to Incirlik? Where have you all read about  that  possibility previously ?
Why let me think.... Of, course it was here! Right here at PFYT! Where I-ve mentioned the US betrayal of Turkey incessantly. Where the real possibility of an Incirlik substitute being located in the unlawfully annexed territory of Syria- was reported on and stated.

US Access to 5, yes 5, Air Installations In Stolen Northern Syria

Kobani and the newly seized airfield in Tabqa increase the capability of the U.S.-led coalition to strike from the air and resupply troops on the ground.
"However, analysts note that the U.S.-led coalition's efforts to upgrade air facilities in northern Syria could eventually reduce its reliance on the Incirlik base.
Any alternative to Incirlik reduces Turkish bargaining power and leverage,” said Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon official who is now an analyst with the American Enterprise Institute in Washington"

Syria Calls on UN TO "Stop US Coalition Crimes" in Syria

 I would like to see everyone unite and condemn this- Come on you twits on twitter! Anti social maniacs. "Antifa" phonies- Instead you all serve the elites and foment their divide to conquer strategy. Useful idiots as tools to be manipulated.

As my hubby's baba would have gestured in an expression of extreme disgust "I spit on you all"

 Sputnik
Damascus called on the UN Security Council to "stop the US-led coalition's crimes against Syrian citizens," a statement issued by the Syrian Foreign Ministry said.
"Syria calls again on the UN Security Council to fulfull its obligations for the sake of peace and security, and to stop the crimes of the US-led coalition against Syrian citizens," the document read.
In the statement released by the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Damascus once again accused the coalition of using white phosphorus, prohibited by international convention, to destroy infrastructure and kill civilians.
"[These actions] have become systematic. The coalition neglects the basics of international law, international humanitarian law and human rights," the statement said.

 US-led coalition aircraft operate within Syria without official permission from Damascus.

I've covered the US use of white phosphorus in previous posts, particularly in Raqqa.
It has, however, been widely reported the US recently used white phosphorus in Mosul also.
Ethnic cleansing folks. Ethnic cleansing is what the US led coalition has been up to in that region.  Ethnic cleansing needed to create a refugee stream into Europe (weaponized as an assault on the people of Europe) To change the demographics of entire areas in order to skew elections etc. to bring about the desired change

2010: Toxic Legacy of US assault on Fallujah "worse then Hiroshima"

The study, entitled "Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005-2009", is by Dr Busby, Malak Hamdan and Entesar Ariabi, and concludes that anecdotal evidence of a sharp rise in cancer and congenital birth defects is correct. Infant mortality was found to be 80 per 1,000 births compared to 19 in Egypt, 17 in Jordan and 9.7 in Kuwait. The report says that the types of cancer are "similar to that in the Hiroshima survivors who were exposed to ionising radiation from the bomb and uranium in the fallout".
Researchers found a 38-fold increase in leukaemia, a ten-fold increase in female breast cancer and significant increases in lymphoma and brain tumours in adults. At Hiroshima survivors showed a 17-fold increase in leukaemia, but in Fallujah Dr Busby says what is striking is not only the greater prevalence of cancer but the speed with which it was affecting people.
