    Is The U.S. Navy Being Hacked?

    Is The U.S. Navy Being Hacked?

    Here's a scary thought: what if the recent collisions involving United States Navy ships are the result of being hacked by a foreign enemy?

    On Monday, the USS John S. McCain crashed into a commercial ship in the Strait of Malacca, ripping a huge hole in the destroyer's side and leaving five sailors wounded and ten missing. According to reports, the crash stemmed from a sudden outage on board that briefly left the ship without its steering capabilities. The ship's steering power mysteriously returned to normal right after the crash.

    Adding to the suspicion that hacking may be involved is the fact that the USS McCain crash was the fourth such incident to plague the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet in the span of a year. The USS Louisiana, USS Lake Champlain and USS Fitzgerald have all been involved in crashes over that timeframe, and all while stationed in Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan.

    The Seventh Fleet is America's largest Naval force in that area of the Pacific and is key to maintaining America's interests in the region. Presumably, that would make the fleet a prime target for the Chinese. The Strait of Malacca, where the John S. McCain's crash happened, is also an important route for China: the country is reliant on that waterway for oil trade with the Middle East.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
