Nuclear button fears | Royal Navy officer reportedly came to work drunk



The British nuclear submarine dubbed “HMS Sex and Cocaine” by the tabloids is in trouble again. An officer responsible for its nuclear missiles reportedly showed up for duty drunk during a port call in the US.

The latest embarrassing incident happened during HMS Vigilant’s stay at the US Navy’s Kings Bay base in Georgia, according to the Sun. Lt. Commander Len Louw came in for his shift just as the crew was preparing to unload Trident II missiles – the primary armament of the submarine. As the weapons engineering officer, Louw was supposed to be in charge of the nuclear weapons.

  1. OMG! A tipsy dude who didn't have the fire codes! OTOH, there's that drunken poltroon Churchill, ordering the bombings of old men, women and children in Dresden. (men/boys of fighting age already on the front lines)

    Just a little historical CONTEXT to eliminate the HYPE, and moreover, (using WMD's) show whose drunkeness gets a statue, and whose doesn't.

  2. Stop fear mongering you trash reporter!!!! One drunk officer cannot launch or detonate anything by himself.. There are launch codes needed… at least 2 keys one carried by the launch officer the other by the captain that are stored in 2 different safes. Each with their own code that is transmitted by command to the communications officer prior to systems testing or an actual event. Just stick to reporting on cats or something.

  3. Please remember “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you” and “Love your neighbour as yourself.”

    “Our God is a God who saves us,

    in the Lord God’s hand lies escape from death.” – (Psalm 68: 20) –

    “The Lord stands aloof from the wicked;

    he listens to the righteous man’s prayer.” – (Proverbs 15: 29) –

    “When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.

    In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.

    Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.

    This is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,

    Give us today our daily bread,

    Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.

    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.

    For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.

    Amen.

    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Jesus Immanuel the Messiah, at Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (at Matthew 7: 1-2) –

    “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – (Jesus, at John 4: 24) –

    “In truth I tell you, anyone who gives heed to what I say and puts his trust in him who sent me, has hold of eternal life and does not come up for judgement, but has already passed from death to life.” – (at John 5: 24) –

    “Is there a man among you who will offer his son a stone if he asks for bread or a snake when he asks for fish? If you then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him!

    Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.

    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.

    Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 9-16) –

    “Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) –

    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.

    The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – (Matthew 7: 21) –

    “I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and no one who is alive and has faith shall ever die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –

    “What I say to you in the dark you must repeat in broad daylight; what you hear whispered you must shout from the rooftops.” – (Matthew 10: 27) –

    “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –

    “Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

    “Any plant that is not of my heavenly Father’s planting will be rooted up. Leave them alone; they are blind guides, and if one blind man guides another they will both fall into the ditch.” – (Matthew 15: 13-14) –

    “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

    “The disciples came and asked Jesus, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

    Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

    “Though many are called, few are chosen.” – (Matthew 22: 14) –

    “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.

    Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –

    “Do not call any man on earth ‘father’; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) –

    “Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…”

    – (Matthew 24: 4) –

    “Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the earth as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” – (Matthew 24: 11-14) –

    “One of the criminals who hung there also mocked and taunted him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us!’ But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He answered, “I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.’” – (Luke 23: 39-43) –

    “For it is my Father’s will that everyone who looks upon the Son and puts his faith in him shall possess eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day” – (John 6: 40) –

    And be assured, I am with you always, to the end of time.” – (Matthew 28: 20) –

    Yours always, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, Thursday the 22nd of October, 2020: – (Matthew 5:14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be a new beginning for any one of us. Let it always be you.
