About Capt Crozier's missteps....

via Politico
The nation's top military officer wants a broader investigation into the events leading up to the firing of an aircraft carrier captain, after top Navy leaders recommended Capt. Brett Crozier be reinstated as commander of the virus-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt, two senior defense officials tell POLITICO.

The push by Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to open a "full-blown investigation" into the incident would delay a final decision on reinstating Crozier after the Navy completed an "extensive" preliminary inquiry, according to one of the officials.

Ogden asked me what my opinion of now that Capt Crozier has been supposedly recommended for reinstatement to his command.

I point to the above article.

We're in the land of politics on this one.  Politics and uninformed public opinion.

Once again SOME military leaders are going for the simple and easy thing.

They're playing to the mob...trying to do what's popular.

The reality is that General Milley is trying to hold the line.  He's trying to maintain good order and discipline EVEN IF the Navy is willing to roll over like a lap dog.


Do you get that?

An Army bubba is trying to hold the line while Navy brass has turned over on its belly and wants a public pat on the back....even though the skipper of one of their premier warships went pure pussy.

The reality from my chair?

The coronavirus is wrecking every military force on the planet.  The only organization that had public humiliation and whining because of it was the US Navy.

France has been hit, Russia, China, and many others but we only heard about how dire and damaging it was from the US Navy.

That should shock you all.  That should worry you all.  Our enemies noted our weakness and so did our friends.

This episode hurt US national security and Crozier should never get another chance to sit in the big chair of a ship at sea.

I know its not a popular position but it is the RIGHT position.
