The US Navy in the Pacific has a problem.
Not only has it lost two of its most advanced air defence destroyers to avoidable collisions at a time of intense regional tensions, there are reports its crews are on the brink of exhaustion — and revolt.
The Navy Times has revealed a catastrophic collapse of morale aboard the key guided missile cruiser USS Shiloh — one of only a handful of ships capable of engaging North Korea’s ballistic missiles.
A Sailor wrote that it is only a matter of time before something horrible happens.
The sailor adds that he prays they never have to shoot down a missile from North Korea because then their ineffectiveness will really show.
