Forbes: Fires Stoke US Navy At Dock


Fires on American warships are becoming an important issue in the country's naval forces. However, instead of developing a concrete plan to combat this scourge, officials nod at similar examples in other countries. The inaction of US military authorities can have far-reaching negative consequences. About it writes Forbes magazine.


Sunday due to non-compliance equipment security there was a major fire on the pier, almost destroying the aircraft carrier landing ship "Bonom Richard." As a result of the incident, the United States Navy could lose a ship worth a billion dollars. During the fire, there were 160 sailors on board, 18 of whom were hospitalized - nothing threatens their lives. The fire bent the steel structures of the ship and melted the tires of the transport on the deck. Repairing Bonn Richard may take several years.

Shipyard fires are becoming the real scourge of the U.S. Navy. But those in charge continue to ignore and hush up the problem.

Fire will occur until either a ship sinks with the crew, or naval commanders learn to prevent such cases.

- say experts of the American publication.


Fires actually drown the US Navy at the pier, Forbes writes. So, in 2012, the Miami strike submarine burned down. In 2019, 11 sailors were affected by the fire on the small landing ship Iwo Jima, in November 2018 the fire severely damaged the Oscars Austin, and in April of this year, the destroyer Delbert Black under construction. In 2011, ammunition was ignited on the destroyer "Spruance".

Only solid leadership and iron discipline can put an end to such incidents. If the command does not take the necessary measures, Congress will have to influence the situation. In general, according to Forbes, America has enough problems to think about how not to sink its own fleet at home.

    Interestingly, on this occasion, the devastating articles will be in the style of:

    "Admiral Kuznetsov" dies not in battle, but because of general sloppiness

    In November, Iwo Jima burned, as if the hands of slobs didn’t reach. request Maybe this time the muse will visit?
    Or do political views affect inspiration? UNDERSTAND THIS OTHER.

      Will be! Ships do not burn where they are not. Will it fit?
      If it doesn’t work, then will we calculate the value of the combat unit of the ocean zone with us and with them? wink
      If yes. Count then how many they have and how many we have? Consider? I think it’s not worth it. Let's leave this stupid idea for the foolish. hi

            Listen to me, wise guy. Any hot work on the ship is work of increased danger. Only strict adherence to the rules allows avoiding these things. And we, and they have a lot of those who are all on the drum. And then I asked you a question. Be smart a little. All I want to ask you is what kind of Observer 2014 is this, Voyeur, or what?

              And what is overexcited? Breathe more smoothly. Be calm. Here they do not sell their homeland. Here they want to hear the truth. Especially you forgot about safety precautions during hot work. laughing

      If there were ten or more “Admirals of the Kuznetsovs” in Russia, the tone would probably be somewhat different.
      Sloppiness and “Avosem” effective managers, politicians and some journalists often try to cover up muddy deeds, “cunning” plans or outright wrecking, that's all.

        I do not exclude such an option, but there is a question - and "there" are "effective managers, politicians and some journalists", or are they all crystal clear white and fluffy elves?
        Are "muddy deeds", "cunning" plans "or overt sabotage - an exclusively Russian phenomenon?
        It just turns out interesting, we have a fire, which means that everyone stole everything, "polymerized", the regime rotted, if they burn there with a six-month interval, but nothing, the guys made a mistake and did not watch. Well, who doesn’t happen to?

          I do not exclude this option ...

          Of course, I have the same opinion with you, "there" there are also different people and there are enough villains.

          we have a fire, it means that everyone was stolen, everyone was "polymerised", the regime is rotten ...

          The regime could not rot, it was only 30 years old. It is still under construction. It was just from the very beginning that he was any, but not popular, but oligarchic. Therefore, these opinions have every reason to exist, "there" is a precedent for "perestroika", it is not clear from what the "independence" and the grand collapse and cut of the state did not suit. Popular goods (including unique ships) around the world were not squandered for a penny, not cut. And much more that can be remembered. So in this regard, there will be no trust in those in power for a long time to come. The people see that the good in the country is immeasurable, but strangely enough, only a small fraction reaches the people. The rest is for yachts, planes and other mobility and real estate for various respected and necessary people in Italy and the Americas, but there is no demand from them. Well, I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t - excuse me, here’s another armchair for you, practice practicing there. The level of responsibility in some places is anecdotal.

          Well, who doesn’t happen to?

          It happens to everyone. If you have ten apartments and three houses. One apartment burned down, it's just a nuisance. And if you have only one, then this is already grief. Very trivial of course, but somehow.

      The fourth day blazes galoshes ...
      And the whole of San Diego was enveloped in a burnout.
      Sniff the coke, the drug mechanic

      Why are they stewing it with gas?

      It is surprising that the regular fire extinguishing system did not work.
      Interestingly, is she even there?

          A picture with humor, laughing good I wonder on which field the Americans will now put a cross, will they be wounded or drown? Although since the 90s they have a clear advantage in the game.
