Default Who was in the wrong lane?

I guess the best way to attack an American warship is at night when they turn off the radar and go to sleep.

They said ship traffic was heavy.......... so wouldn't this be the time to be watching the radar and GPS? Aren't there shipping lanes? I mean both ships, I'm not picking sides.

I remember the story about a US ship arguing with Canadians about getting in their way in a dense fog. They kept telling the Canadians to vacate the area. After a little fun, the Canadians explained that they could not move, they were on a lighthouse.

LOL. Yeah, I remember the lighthouse one.

Sad about the destroyer and the missing sailors. I hope they are found alive and well-- but that doesn't seem likely.
