No, it means they are "paying a price" by having to work their asses off, trying to "get their shit together", and its a high price, not only hard work, but folks who don't have a clue passing judgement on their work, and their boat! not to mention their own character.....Thursday at 9:46 PM
... and here comes a politically-correct version (Under Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly on Friday, inside https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/10/25/pentagon-official-wants-to-keep-shaking-up-the-navy-marines/):
“We as a Navy and as a Department of Defense have a lot to be held accountable for with respect to the Ford," Modly said. “Certain decisions that were made to put in all those new technologies at once on a new platform and I think we’re accepting responsibility for it.”
makes me wonder what exactly "accepting responsibility" means (I'm guessing it means surviving until a promotion for outstanding achievements in game-changing program)
Yep, trying to make a cultural and technological leap is never easy, but its always gonna draw a crowd of "internet experts" know it alls, and in general "nervous nellies"....
Since it takes 5, 10, 15, 20 years to roll out a new boat these days, you try to "pack it" with all the foreseeable answers, to all the foreseeable threats....
If you don't, 2 years down the road, those same all wise, all knowing "internet experts" will ask why you didn't anticipate this threat, or that threat???
so you might as well go for broke, all you're going to catch is "shit" anyway, go for it, but you will have to deal with the reality of bringing a technological marvel into the "real world", and you will have to pay for it... so what???
