....I must have stated on FR a hundred times that women in certain roles in the military will get men killed. Women have no business on a ship period. They are a total distraction. I think Natalie and Irian were most likely flirting with each other, or much more than that, and ignoring their duties and 7 kids are dead!
If the admirals, captains and chiefs were fired that’s good. Then these women should not only be fired too but put in the brig for a time because their dereliction killed people.
The REAL responsibility though lies within all legislators who ever voted on any one of many votes over decades to turn the army and navy and air force into a military version of the Cheyenne Social Club.
Well I read the whole report and I come away with a COMPLETE lack of leadership from the top down. Complete lack of following normal operating procedures and I am not going to pin in only on the ladies. They too, were in the wrong, but the whole Navy appears to need a reshaping to good seamanship, since we had three of these happen in less than a year.
