Why doesn't the headline read "Phillipino container ship attempting to ram USS Fitzgerald sunk by warship."

Down by the head it looks like, and to add insult to injury impact is on the green side. Ugh.

Because warships are subject to COLREGS as well, and judging from the impact zone, the Burke was quite likely primarily responsible for the incident.

You ever do that confused shuffle in a hallway or bump into someone while walking?  How about a "slam on the brakes" moment in a car?  That's how, just with worse maneuverability.

The more and more I see shit like this it boggles my mind. Seriously were supposed to be the best military in the world and we cannot stop jets from flying into buildings, and terrorists out of our country. What the hell will a navy destroyer ever destroy in war if it cannot avoid a civilian cargo ship. Now the Japanese know instead of warships to fight our fleet just get the civilian ships to take out our navy. Bumper boat wars. I suppose our tax dollars will pay for this shit to. Between U.N. cutting our nuts off to fight wars and our countries growing incompetence I am thinking we will never win another conflict until we tell them all to fuck off. If that captain did his job  or the officer on the deck had. That boat would be 100% and cargo ship would have been sunk to avoid this.

it's pretty obvious he meant "are not too severe."  With 11K posts, if he was a troll he would have been flushed out looong ago.

That what happens when you drive in front of a container ship. The Burke was the "give way" vessel in a meeting situation (if that's what it was, which is likely) meaning it's their duty to alter course so as not to cross the container ship's bow.
