U.S. Nuclear Sub and Japanese Cargo Ship Collide in Middle East
U.S. sub, Japanese cargo ship collide in Middle East

Mideast edition, Wednesday, January 10, 2007


A U.S. nuclear-powered submarine and a Japanese cargo ship collided in international waters in the Middle East on Monday, but no injuries or serious damage were reported, U.S. Navy and Japanese company officials said Tuesday.

The bow of the fast attack submarine USS Newport News collided with the stern of the Japanese oil tanker Mogamigawa near the Strait of Hormuz, a choke point for vessels transiting in and out of the Middle East, officials said.

The submarine was underwater when it collided with the Japanese vessel, though officials could not provide details such as its depth because the incident is under investigation, said Navy Lt. Denise Garcia, a spokeswoman with the Navy’s 5th Fleet in Bahrain.

There were no injuries to any of the 127 officers and enlisted crewmembers or substantial damage to the submarine, which is based in Norfolk, Va.

Though the Mogamigawa sustained damage to a ballast tank — a reserve filled with water to keep vessels balanced — it did not prevent the tanker from sailing on its own, said Atsushi Takayama, a spokesman for the Tokyo-based Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd., the sea shipping company that manages the Mogamigawa.

The tanker sailed to the United Arab Emirates, where it will undergo an inspection and needed repairs, he said. It is expected to sail Wednesday to its intended destination of Singapore. The Mogamigawa was carrying a cargo of crude oil, none of which spilled into the sea, Takayama said. None of the 24 crewmembers was injured.

The Strait of Hormuz, between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf, is a choke point that all transiting ships must go through, Garcia said. “You can imagine the traffic that flows through there,” she said.

There have been other collisions between U.S. vessels and commercial ships in the busy shipping lanes of the Persian Gulf, according to The Associated Press. In September 2005, a U.S. nuclear submarine collided with a Turkish cargo ship in the gulf. In July 2004, the aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy collided with a dhow in the gulf.

On Feb. 9, 2001, the submarine USS Greenville rammed into and sunk the Japanese fishing trawler Ehime Maru off Hawaii, killing nine people and sparking tension and protests. The nuclear-powered submarine surfaced beneath the trawler while demonstrating an emergency surfacing maneuver for civilian guests aboard during a day trip.

U.S. Submarine Collides With Japanese Ship
AP

TOKYO (Jan. 9) - A U.S. nuclear-powered submarine collided with a Japanese oil tanker in the Straits of Hormuz, through which 40 percent of the world's oil supplies travel, officials said.

No one was hurt in the accident that happened Monday night in the 34-mile wide straits, which are bordered by Iran and Oman and serve as the entrance to the Persian Gulf.

Damage to the fast-attack USS Newport News submarine and the supertanker was light and there was no resulting spill of oil or leakage of nuclear fuel, officials from the U.S. Navy and the Japanese government said.

Both ships remained able to navigate, Navy officials said.

Bush's Rush to Armageddon
by Robert Parry | Jan 9 2007 - 9:15am |

George W. Bush has purged senior military and intelligence officials who were obstacles to a wider war in the Middle East, broadening his options for both escalating the conflict inside Iraq and expanding the fighting to Iran and Syria with Israel’s help.

On Jan. 4, Bush ousted the top two commanders in the Middle East, Generals John Abizaid and George Casey, who had opposed a military escalation in Iraq, and removed Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte, who had stood by intelligence estimates downplaying the near-term threat from Iran’s nuclear program.

Everything has pointed to Iraq being a stepping stone to a larger war in the M.E. so I am not surprised by this.
