USS Guardian Aground: Crew Leaves Navy Ship Stuck In Philippines

USS Guardian Aground: Crew Leaves Navy Ship Stuck In Philippines

Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 17:22:30 in World

“Based on the report by a local news (GMA News 24 Oras) in the Philippines, USS Guardian was notified by Philippine Coastguard three times not to enter the area of Tubbataha Reef. However, for an identified reason the navy vessel proceeded to enter the reef. Sulu sea is not known to have sea mines as far as I know. I think the mine sweeper has no business in the area. The US navy officers should have responded to the Phil. Coastguard's warning having knowledge to the area. US navy may have the latest capabilities but apparently it did not work this time in avoiding the incident. The cost of the accident to the corals in the area which considered among the best in the world is priceless and its impact to the biodiversity will be enormous. I hope no one among the servicemen was hurt and we always appreciate their service.”
