What is wrong with the US navy?

>Water on the USS Abraham Lincoln - water that sailors use for drinking and bathing - reported to be "cloudy" and "have an odour".
>Sailors forced to subsist on bottled water supplies while the ship returned to port
>E. Coli subsequently found in 3 (!) of the aircraft carrier's water tanks.
>Water quality problems persist for up to 48h.

How can the US/HATO expect to defeat Russia and China when their navy is suffering from problems like this?

    No matter how anons try to spin it, losing an entire carrier to negligence or sabotage is a big deal.

    And to answer OP - the problems of the NAVY start at the top - the admiralty and Congress.
    Congress is doing absolutely horrible sabotage on procurement and the admiralty requires insane time out of port which takes its toll on both crews and ships.

      Nah, the navy has done that to itself with the number of reatard projects and decisions they've had over the past two decade.

      The lcs is the laughing stock of the world. The zumwalt and ford fuckups. Whatever the fuck is happening with the burke lines. All of that is because of the brasses dev and procurement decisions.

    Some corrections on this:
    1)They isolated the faulty tanks instead of relying on bottled water only.
    2)The tanks will be cleaned or decomission and replaced.
    3)The rest of the system is reported as fine.

          PHS have naval ranks for two reasons: one, they ran the naval hospitals, and two, in times of national health emergency they're nominally supposed to have more authority to direct the medical response, and giving them an actual rank means that DoD forces can be made subservient to them for ease of command. This does not mean that they have authority in a combat situation, or can be put in command of a ship or fleet. It just means if shit gets Spanish Flu-tier again, they can issue medical-related orders to military personnel responding to the emergency. If someone was dumb enough to try and invade during said emergency, combat arms would resume command of the troops.

          But the RW rageosphere wants to reeee about trannies some more, so some trannie getting a high position in the NHS means that the gays run the military and are mandating estrogen injections instead of combat training.

      While this... thing does technically hold the rank of Admiral/O-10, it's a part of the Public Health Service, and therefore not military. As a civilian, you can safely disregard anything it has to say about literally any topic, it doesn't have any actual authority over any private citizens conduct, save the poor bastards working under it.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Levine

          >Flag officers of the Commissioned Corps are authorized to use rank flags. When the Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Health is a Commissioned Corps admiral, he or she is authorized use of the flag of the Assistant Secretary for Health as a four-star rank flag. The Commissioned Corps vice admiral serving as Surgeon General of the United States uses the flag of the Surgeon General as a three-star rank flag, while the Commissioned Corps rear admiral serving as deputy surgeon general uses the deputy surgeon general's flag as a two-star rank flag.

          The PHS is headed by a civilian Secretary of Health and Human Services, and is assisted in their duties by the Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services, carrying the rank of Admiral/O-10. The Surgeon General is subordinate to the Assistant Secretary, carrying a rank of Vice Admiral/O-9. Unfortunately, it does hold the highest rank in that service.

    Former navy here. This is most likely the result of small maintenance items like valve greasing being repeatedly blazed (signed off without actually being performed) over a period of many years. In fact, almost all maintenance is done this way. There are too many obstacles to doing quality maintenance so just signing for it is the preferred method.

        Never seen one that dirty. That would not fly in the US navy. Cleanliness is a big thing. It's also a great way to impress the higher ups and distract from actual plant deficiencies.

    Because the US Navy reports the problems and fixes them instead of pretending that it's fine and letting the problems accumulate until it is unable to defend itself against a volley of only 2 Neptune missiles.

    I don't care if this is a slide thread, I'm here to say as former Gavy that everyone's demotivated, de-invested, and ready to fuck off from the Navy. So of course someone gundecks so hard they fail to check for e-coli and JP-5 in the water. Of course the khakis don't give enough of a fuck to admit there's a fuckup in the water while tightening their lips about the situation. Of course the fucking skipper gets their own supply of water in the form of plastic water bottles.
