Pretty sure this wasn’t an accident. Way to much money is being made on ship rental fees for heavy freight right now.

Annnd it's another tinfoil hat believer!

There's no doubt the Panamanian flagged ship intentionally blocked the Suez Canal a week so worldwide shipping would slow to a crawl. The ship's master cooked up the scheme while playing cribbage with the first mate. They conspired with the weather gods to allow 40 knot + winds to ground the ship.

Reports say the crew took advantage of the grounding to work on their tans and shuffleboard skills.

At 548 million pounds not a easy task to free it.

With a 40kt. crosswind, the ship encountered over a million pounds of side force on it. It was probably crabbing down the channel before it got stuck.

I'd be curious to learn who and how this dislodging operation gets paid for. Insurance, ship operators, or consumers with price increased products?
Good thing for full moon otherwise it certainly would have taken longer.

He was double the speed limit and didn’t have guide tugs. Went during a sand storm. And drew dicks in the bay on the gps.

Really?
Reductio ad absurdum from you?
Never saw that coming.

Arguing a conclusion based on senses using reductio smacks of fear. Lol

Forget that, are you forgetting the Toyota tundra pulled the space shuttle? 😆
Yeah, just the shuttle. The F150 would be able to pull the shuttle both boosters and full external fuel tank😉🤣

Blame the wind. That's what caused Pedo Joe to tumble down the stairs 3 times.

Police launched a criminal investigation into a possible piloting error by the Ever Given’s captain, Oechtering said, but the probe found no misconduct and determined the captain had been caught by surprise by the wind, the Journal reported.

FEAR? More like comedy. Lately every time there's a controversy, there are posters that are fer sure Putin is behind it. It's like watching Get Smart! reruns

Not good lol. They are blaming this on the wind. If some terrorist group wanted to hold the Suez hostage this looks like a pretty good way to do it...
My guess.......this shit was planned. Just sayin.

Whats up with all the "rumors" about the Soviet military involved and lots of children being hidden on that ship????


And for those of us deplorables who believe "there are no conspiracies but no coincidences"...

"What are the odds a Taiwanese container ship the size of the Empire State Building runs aground supposedly from 40 knot winds days after the EU sanctions Chinese Communist Party officials? About the same as Joe Biden getting knocked down by the wind. Or a Republican not selling out her base. It’s all Evergreen. No conspiracies, but no coincidences. One way to avoid the next time the CCP tries playing tetris in the Suez Canal, is a new artisanal revolution, decoupled from China with “telework populism” and local supply chains. Where the entire global economy won’t collapse by a single event." - Bannon's War Room
