    The US Navy will scrap nine warships worth $3.2 billion - despite some being just three years old - because their technology is already obsolete.  Anti-submarine systems on the Freedom-class combat warships, four of which were commissioned in 2019 and 2020, 'did not work out technically', the Navy's operations chief said. Admiral Michael Gilday asked Congress to sign off on the scrapping, which will save the Navy $391 million.  USS Indianapolis undergoes a pre-commissioning rehearsal in October 2019. The 3,500-ton warship suffered technical faults to its anti-submarine warfare systems and will be scrapped The USS Wichita, pictured in April 2021, will be scrapped just three years after its commission USS Fort Worth, pictured in the Java Sea in 2015, will spend just ten years in service He told the House Armed Services Committee: 'I refuse to put an additional dollar against a system that would not be able to track a high-end submarine in today's environment.'

    Valeska Paris was born into the church of Scientology. She says she was abused as a child on the Sea Org ships, forced into labor and even sexually assaulted Three Scientology defectors are suing the church's leader David Miscavige claiming they were trafficked as children and forced into 'dangerous' labor aboard the controversial Sea Org ships.  Gawain Baxter, his wife Laura and Valeska Paris all sued the church in Tampa this week, claiming they were forced into the work on the ships from as young as the age of six.  They said they had to sign contracts promising 'one billion years' of service to the church and worked for 'low and even no pay'.  Gawain Baxter said his parents put him in a Sea Org nursery when he was two months old.  At the age of six, he was forced to sign the one billion year contract, and went to live in a Cadet Org dormitory with around 100 other children.  'Children over six years old are considered to be and are frequently told that they are adults and that...
    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Friday to allow international naval forces to continue using all necessary means to fight piracy off the coast of Somalia — but only for the next three months because the Somali government says there has been no piracy incident for over four years and it’s time end the operation. The council had been renewing the authorization for regional organizations and countries to fight against piracy and armed robbery off the coast of the Horn of Africa nation for 12 months. But this year the Somali government, whose consent is required, objected to another year-long renewal sought by the United States, which drafted the resolution, and agreed only to three months after negotiations with the U.S. and other council members. “We believe that the Security Council resolutions on piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Somalia have successfully achieved its intended objective,” Somalia’s U.N. Ambassador Abukar Dahir Osman told the council after the vote. He said 13 years after adoption of the council’s first resolution to fight piracy, the milestone...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – As an estimated 500,000 containers are sitting on cargo ships off the Southern California coast, many are wondering how to handle the backlog. Few are more frustrated about the backlog at the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, than truck drivers in the chaos. They say that a trucker shortage is not the problem, instead, the port needs to speed up wait times and have more dock help ready to offload.

    The Navy has reported three new cases of COVID-19 on the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt — the same carrier sidelined for weeks last year when the virus infected more than 1,200 crew members, killing one, Military.com reported. The three sailors who tested positive havent shown any symptoms for the illness and were isolated aboard the ship, along with all identified close contacts, the service said in a statement Monday night, the news outlet reported. The Roosevelt outbreak was the Navy’s worst last year, and led to thousands of crew members being evacuated in Guam. The ships commanding officer was relieved of duty and the acting Navy secretary later resigned. The Defense Departments inspector general has found most Navy commands weren’t following pandemic requirements before COVID-19 hit, Military.com reported. "We know we need to improve and are focused on implementing recommendations in the report," Lt. Emily Wilkin, a Navy spokeswoman at the Pentagon, said last week in response to the Inspector General’s report, the news outlet reported. "The Navys pandemic plan worked rather well, considering only two out of nearly 300...
