Russians and cows at sea

April 28, 2017

I am glad no crew were lost, do not know which vessels were at fault or how, and have no doubt fog played a role, when the Russian naval ship Liman collided with the Togo-flagged livestock carrier Youzarsif H, shown left, sinking the Russian ship. Nonetheless, I’m sure the captain of the Liman will be reminded time and time and time again that he was commanding a reconnaissance ship, equipped with “a radar station, a hydroacoustic detector and other reconnaissance equipment needed to track surface ships and submarines,” and staffed with crew trained to operate that surveillance equipment around the clock.

And still he collided with a ship full of livestock.

    Undoubtedly, any excuse the captain gives will be full of . . . bovine excrement.
