In connection with the situation on the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" resigned Acting Minister of the US Navy

From the US come news about the next resignation, which relates to the situation with the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt. Recall that earlier in the US Navy Department it was decided to remove from the post the commander (in the American tradition - the captain) of the aircraft carrier warship Brett Crozier.


Crozier was removed from his post for contacting the Pentagon through the media asking for help in connection with the growing number of crew members who became ill with a new coronavirus during a long voyage.

Now the United States has decided that the one who removed Brett Crozier should also be dismissed. That person was Thomas Modley, the acting Secretary of the U.S. Navy.

According to the latest reports, Modley resigned "of his own free will." And this resignation, according to US media, was immediately accepted by US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.

Esper announced that a new Navy minister has already been appointed. They became James MacPherson, who served as deputy secretary of the US Army. It is noted that before the appointment, Esper consulted with US President Donald Trump. Trump himself confirmed such consultations and noted that Modley made the decision on his own.

Meanwhile, the number of crew members of "Theodore Roosevelt" with detected coronavirus infection exceeded 200.

    Meanwhile, the number of crew members of "Theodore Roosevelt" with detected coronavirus infection exceeded 200.


    And if it happens that for some of the seafarers who were infected on board, the case will end in death, the Minister of Defense, apparently also will have to leave ...

    Virus, in the USA, at the moment, chief. It is he who makes personnel decisions ...

      Insanity grew stronger.
      Dismissed the captain of the aircraft carrier.
      The public decided that they had fired in vain.
      They fired the one who fired the captain (more precisely, they found the last one).
      BUT THE CAPTAINS WERE NOT RETURNED

              I read about him. He is a lawyer by training. served in the army. Then he began to make a career in the army (including in the navy, in the underwater) in all kinds of lawyer and prosecutorial posts. His position is generally civilian and does not imply a rank, uniform or epaulette. Therefore so. This title does not imply any ranks or military service. Usually a minister (American secretary) has the title remaining after leaving the active duty. Nevertheless, they usually appoint those who still had experience in military service. Although usually quite a while ago

              By the way, MacPherson has the rank of rear admiral in our opinion. But Modley, his predecessor, apparently did not have any titles.

          I mean, do not laugh at the destination. This is very close. Including ours.
          Of course, the servicemen themselves take such appointments with hostility ("not ours")
          But, I think this is not critical, if only the education and the qualities of the appointed person would allow them to fulfill professional duties at the level

            Right, from the Ministry of Emergencies.

          Here you listen, it turns out the beginning of the fight against emergency situations implemented by Sergei Shoigu. Until 1991, they probably didn’t know what to do with them, so Shoigu came and set it all up. Wonderful of course. In America, these people are called Keanu Reeves and John Connors.

    An indisputable fact was the political and military strength of the coronavirus:
    in Russia, he defeated several governors in the struggle, and in the States, aircraft carrier commander and Brett Crozier, and even Acting Secretary of the U.S. Navy Thomas Modley.

    In the course, the commander of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt Brett Crozier did not want to be (a scapegoat) and spoke through the media. I doubt that the Pentagon knew anything about the epidemic, they just didn’t react

    He didn’t quite leave. The day before the statement, he was still walking naked. Well, put things in order.
    In fact, Captain Crozier was respected on the aircraft carrier, everyone lined up and chanted his name as he left. And then some minister, a bureaucrat arrived and began to insult their beloved commander through internal communications, calling them a "stupid traitor" ... The sailors leaked the record to the press and immediately the Minister of Defense suggested writing this frame on his own.
    I just remember the situation when Serdyukov insulted and mocked the airborne officers, including the Hero of Russia. Interestingly, at least someone at least scolded him?

    Crozier was removed from his post because he through the media appealed to the Pentagon asking for help in connection with the growing number of crew members

    What time already discussed
    He did not apply to the press, he wrote a letter about the need to expedite the provision of quarantine - and so it was carried out in parts - to his naval authorities, but at the same time leaked information about the letter among the crew.
    The crew wrote approval to the commander in social networks, from there the journalists learned and wrote an article in the Chronicle, I have a link somewhere in the posts, anyone can read it.
    Formally, the aircraft carrier’s commander was removed precisely for the leak of information.
    The stupidity of this became immediately clear - a wave of signatures in support of the sailor rose in the States, we see the result in the article.
    And if someone from the crew dies, then the minister seems to follow him.

    In fact, the aircraft carrier must also be flooded, since the virus can live very long on different surfaces ... Otherwise, who wants to serve on it?
