Slide 8 of 41

In fact, in WW2, the U.S. Navy LOST MORE SHIPS AND PLANES TO THE BATTLE AGAINST THE EARTH than to their human Japanese/German foes!


U.S. Naval Aviation News of March 1, 1946 reports:

SHIP LOSSES

Grounding 94 + Storms 56 + Explosions 29 + Overdue on patrol 46 + Fire 3 + Unknown Sinking 12 = 240 ships!

PLANE LOSSES


Non-Combat (TBATE)

Navy: 2, 784 + 642 + 203 + 1, 237 + 3, 093 + 108 = 8, 067 DEAD
Mc: 542 + 892 = 1, 434 DEAD
________________________________
TOTAL: 9, 501 DEAD

Combat (TBAM)

Navy: 3, 075
Mc: 446
________________________________

TOTAL: 3, 521 DEAD

So much for the "heroic" mythology from the USN/Mc propaganda machine....most men died due to incompetence caused pilot flying errors and/or equipment failures or simply "showboating" for ego. Typical example below:



We know in Vietnam, the U.S. Army lost a horrendous 4, 000 wrong-colored slow, noisy VTOL helicopters. Of these about half were from accidents (TBATE). Even when death is only a few seconds away by operating platforms in the air and sea, the military narcissistic mind is barely dented...the numbers of aviators showboating to peers and girlfriends trying to buzz them but ending up as flaming wrecks was such a problem in WW2, that the Navy told all their men that if they did such things and got themselves killed their loved ones would receive no death benefits. Read the U.S. Naval Aviation News magazines from 1942-1946:

NARCISSISM is the #1 PROBLEM IN THE U.S. MILITARY.
