The container ship was seen making a U-turn before the collision on some ship trackers, a move that has raised questions about what happened. All of the ACX Crystal's 20-member Filipino crew were safe, according to Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen K.K., which operates the ship. The Japanese coast guard questioned crew members of the ACX Crystal, and is treating the incident as a case of possible professional negligence, said Masayuki Obara, a regional coast guard official.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent a sympathy message to President Donald Trump on Sunday. "We are struck by deep sorrow," Abe said in the message. "I express my heartfelt solidarity to America at this difficult time," he said, praising U.S. servicemen in Japan under the allies' bilateral security pact.
The mystery surrounding the USS Fitzgerald in what many are calling an accident...No longer sounds like an accident. To make a sudden u-turn at a US NAVY warship before hitting it sounds more like an ordered attack doesn't it? Why would the Filipino flagged ACX Crystal make a sudden u-turn likely knowing that the USS Fitzgerald was likely close by?
This event that has left 7 NAVY sailors dead sounds like an attack or some kind of terrorists attack, and knowing that ISIS is in the Philippines we probably should start questioning this USS Fitzgerald incident now as a terrorist attack or ordered attack. To do a sudden u-turn in the direction of a US NAVY warship no longer sounds like an accident, as in something or someone ordered this accident as an attack on the USS Fitzgerald...And this wouldn't be the first time an attack on a US NAVY warship took place, as in remember the Cole?
