The Argentine Navy has confirmed that Russia has ended its help in the search for the missing ARA San Juan submarine that disappeared in the South Atlantic with 44 crew-members aboard in November. Read full article
The government headed by Mauricio Macri is in a haste to forget -- and make everyone else -- to forget about the whole story.
No national mourning day was decreed, no official ceremony, no mass -- nada.
In the meantime, a judge is gathering evidence, which is slowly uncovering how the ARA San Juan was not in shape to go out to sea -- but sent anyways.
REF: No national mourning day was decreed, no official ceremony, no mass -- nada:
;( Sadly disgusting and disgustingly shameful fact about the existence of an Official Insensible Behavior which NO word can describe appropriately.
@EM and you would say exactly the same if Crissie was in power would you?
No any ceremony was held based on the requirements of the families of the crew. They say (they still say) that until the remains of the ARA San Juan were fond they don’t want to have their relatives (the crew) considered officially killed by the Navy and the Nation. Their position can be easily check in the mass media.
As regards the submarine technical condition, it is quite clear that something unexpected had happened that took the control of the submarine out of the crew. Otherwise, having the submarine sailing at a dept of 300 meters (the debt of the implosion) is not rational at all.
In addition, the captain of the submarine had the authority, and the legal responsibility, of cancelling any mission to assure the safety of the crew and the submarine. This, the cancelling of a mission, is a legal attribution that can be decided in both, war and peace times. What would be the point of risking the life of the crew and the submarine in a regular trip back to its base in peace times?
I know that, as usual, you would not comment any of my posts. Lack of answers?
There were numerous minor ceremonies and the families of the crew did not complaint. It's recognition at national level that is shamefully lacking.
However, here PG rushes to rescue us from ignorance, reassuring us that everything is safe in the competent hands of the government headed by Mauricio Macri.
PG even gifts us with a sample of clear thinking--or else he takes us readers by a bunch of fools. Read the following:
”...it is quite clear that something unexpected had happened that took the control of the submarine out of the crew. Otherwise, having the submarine sailing at a dept of 300 meters (the debt of the implosion) is not rational at all.”
Wow. I've seen many (in) communications people who make as much sense as you do, PG.
Wouldn't be nice if PG was right. Unfortunately, two Armada officers have already been suspended contralmirante Luis Enrique López Mazzeo, comandante de Adiestramiento y Alistamiento de la Armada; y el capitán de navío Claudio Villamide, comandante de la Fuerza de Submarinos.
Said PG: ”...the captain of the submarine (could cancel) any mission...what would be the point of risking the life of the crew and the submarine in a regular trip back to its base in peace times?”
All I know, PG, is that judge Marta Yáñez of Caleta Olivia is investigating the case--and I hope she goes to the bottom of it. But perhaps she should hear from you that all is well and that she can go home.
