    The Navy 'Is in a Bad Way Right Now'

    "The obvious conclusion is the officers on the bridge and the seamen don't have basic navigation skills. They no longer are drilled in basic seamanship. They don't have the discipline they should. I love the U.S. Navy ... but it's in a bad way right now," he said on Fox Business Network.

    He also criticized the "disgraceful" way U.S. sailors reacted when they were taken captive by Iranian forces in 2016.

    An active-duty Navy officer echoed the concerns to Fox News, questioning the level of training for young officers.

    "It’s not the same level of training you used to get," the officer said.

    Peters called out the military, especially in the Obama administration, for turning the armed services into a "social engineering experiment."

    "Those sailors did not have the basic seamanship skills, but by God, they got their sensitivity, race relations and sexual harassment training," said Peters, adding that sailors can't fight without adequate navigational skills.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

    I never knew what they had before so I cannot speak on their training now.
    But I know when you put men and women on the same ship sooner or later someone will get ####ed or bitch about harrassment.

    Women and men do not belong on ships together.
    The military should be a male force with women working the sidelines. Not in combat or submarines or even flying.

    Now that my opinion, others can have theirs, that's fine, but when you mix 2 sexes things happen.
