Don't they have radar systems to prevent against that kind of thing? I mean, we're hardly talking about some local fishers on a dingy...
There's another scenario: Almost all modern ships -including freighters and oilers- are computer controlled. While U.S. destroyers are not a likely target for "hacking," these others are...Track the course of the oil tanker before and leading up to the latest collision. Does it make sense to any navigator?

Yes, the U.S. Navy needs to better appreciate this threat.
Odd, I know that as "what shall we do with the drunken sailor." Besides that I think it's the same. Probably.
Totally innocent sailors killed and 4 state-of-the-art warships not run right and we get this stuff??
Capt. Joseph Carrigan was relieved due to a "loss of confidence" in his ability to command by Rear Adm. Charles Williams, commander of Task Force 70, according to a Navy statement from U.S. Pacific Fleet in Hawaii on Wednesday.
The commander of the Navy's Japan-based 7th Fleet was fired last week after a series of accidents this year raised questions about its operations. The firing of Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, a three-star admiral, was a rare dismissal of a high-ranking officer for operational reasons.

With the recent collision of the USS John S. McCain near Singapore, the return of the "Facebook Admiral" pretty much sets my teeth on edge. Look, going to sea is dangerous. Period. But we humans have been doing it so long that we take it for granted and we believe that it is safe. Especially with the advances in technology. But the fact is that all those things, radar, sonar, computers and electronic wizardry, are only tools. If Sailors - who, the last time I checked, are imperfect human beings, don't use the tools properly, things can go wrong. And here's the thing - no matter how much technology you pack into a warship, there is an undisputable truth about collisions at sea. And that truth is that it doesn't matter how much technology you pack into a hull. There is only one thing that will prevent an accident.
