While the Mainstream media, and we are sure many Americans, are upset and angry about the firing of Navy Capt. Brett Crozier. This is mostly because the media are claiming he was fired for pleaded for help as the coronavirus ravaged his crew.
While the media and the civilian population have the luxury of looking at this incident in such a light, the commanders responsible for the safety of the ship, it’s crew and America do not have that luxury.
While Capt. Crozier did utilize the proper channels to air his concerns, he made the BIG MISTAKE in leaking the critical information to the media. Consider this… enemies of our great nation discover that one of our Premier Navy Ships is in a weakened state isn’t it likely that they would view such a situation as an ideal opportunity for which they could take advantage?
This was a Navy Ship Captain. He should have known better. While the media will undoubtable use this incident as yet another way to attack President Trump and his administration [it has already began at the time of this articles release] many of us who have actually served in the United States military know this is akin to reason and dangerous to the orderly operation of a dignified and properly operating military.
We imagine more details will surface that will show Capt. Crozier’s actions were, at least in part, motivated y his political views, thought we can not prove such allegations at this time.
Not withstanding, Capt. Crozier’s publication of the ships weakened state was not only a violation of protocol, it could conceivably be viewed as an act or treason and possible aiding of the enemy.
