USS Bonhomme Richard Amphibious Assault Ship On Fire At Naval Base San Diego (Videos)

A screenshot from the video

On July 12, fire erupted on board of the USS Bonhomme Richard, a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, at the US Navy base in San Diego. According to reprots, the fire broke out at about 8:30 a.m. local time in the ship’s well deck. Later an explosion was also repoted. It was likely caused by the expanding fire.

The entire crew of the ship was evacuated, with about 18 people transported to a hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries”.

“The fire was called away at approx. 8:30 AM, July 12,” read a statement on Twitter from Naval Surface Forces. “160 Sailors were aboard at the time. Bonhomme Richard is going through a maintenance availability and has a crew size of approx. 1000. 18 Sailors have been transferred to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”

According to videos and photos from the scene, the USS Bonhomme Richard is at Pier 2 sharing it with two Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers (DDG-51) and is adjacent to a crew berthing barge.

    They painted the F-16 to look like Su-57 for training, now they made one of their carriers look like Kuznetsov.

      The Kuznetsov didn’t sink tho, but is back in service.
      Lets see if they can emulate that too ;)

      Lmao pretty funny, also too bad … the Kuznetsov will stop smoking .. it grew on me lmao

    • James

      Maybe they can paint more of their carriers for practice then.

    The US Navy ship burning in San Diego could burn for days, “down to the waterline,” the San Diego fire chief says. At least 18 sailors have been injured.

      If it burns for days the ship is kaput

    • PZIVJ

      “down to the waterline” Wow, that’s quite a ship fire!!
      Where any Russian consulate members spotted fleeing the scene?
      And where was Putin when the explosion occurred? :)

      • John Wallace

        Putin was seen smoking what looked like a strange cigar before making a hasty retreat a short time before the fire broke out. There is nothing to suggest Putin had anything to do with it , other than the big big smile on his face while running away.

        • FlorianGeyer

          The ‘smile’ part is very accurate I would think.

        An unidentified source sent me a message vis a homing pigeon that stated ” The Russian Military paid a bounty to the Iranian Military for setting fire to the US Bonhomo.”

    Iranian soldiers paid by putin put chinese made mines on the USS Bonhomme Richard. The operation was done following maduro s orders.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      The only thing you missed there was the North Korean hackers that stole the money from dual national U.S. investors with Mossad links to give to Putin to commission the job which nicely ties up everything for the U.S. State Dept to blame just about every known U.S. adversary.

        By any objective measure the US is literally a sinking ship. Its economy and society are in tatters, it has idiotically burdened itself with unsustainable military overstretch and got bogged down in Zionist instigated endless wars are like a cancer are slowing eating away at its carcass. Over 150 million of its hapless citizens are in dire poverty and economic distress, its economy does not produce anything the world wants, besides expensive weapons of war. Even its military has has the highest Covid 19 infection rates in the world. It has a total leadership void and its decaying deep state institutions are plagued by corruption and racism.The State of the dis-Union is indeed pathetic.

            More than 45,100 service members have tested positive for coronavirus since
            the July 1, according to the Defense Department’s latest statistics, a
            rise of about 33 percent in the last 10 days. That is more than twice
            the rate of growth nationwide during the same period, 16 percent, as the U.S. more than once broke its daily records for new cases.

            one of the cheapest mobile Internets in the world….
            and in general income per capita is very high due to the fact that life in Russia is relatively very cheap comparing to developed Western countries U.S. included.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Russia is a fully functioning state, the Americunt shithole is a deadbeat loser, most of the developing world is in far better shape with a social and medical safety net. Now most the riots are being done by the unemployed trash.

In any case the Americunt pigs are dying like rabid dogs in the streets and their rapist and child molesting cowardly soldiers are getting infected with the Pimpeovirus as an alraming rate and no one cares for the trash. As I posted years ago Americunts are fucked, most are begging in the streets anyway, but the arseholes still have 800 bases overseas and the dumb fucks are spending trillions on losing wars. This is the ideal time to make their murderous occupation of Syria and Iraq into a nightmare.

          • Lone Ranger

            Yeah, but I bet if they build a new one they will charge $4billion at least…
            In 1970 the first Nimitz class was $1billion.
            The new Gerard Ford is $12billion and is inferior in many ways compared to the Nimitz.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Their real debt is now over $35 TRILLION and there are no jobs and unrest and Pimpreo virus is causing over $10 billion a day. They simply can’t keep on printing worthless dollars. Pepe Escobar has a very interesting article on Asia Times on how China will quickly replace the dollar after signing a strategic pact with both Russia and Iran.

            China will invest $400 billion in Iran’s energy and
            infrastructure but nothing in the strategic pact allows for a Chinese
            troop presence or island handover, writes Pepe Escobar

            TWO of the US’s top ‘strategic threats’ are getting closer and closer
            within the scope of the New Silk Roads — the leading 21st century
            project of economic integration across Eurasia. The Deep State will not
            be amused.

          • Lone Ranger

            Yep.

            They either default or they go to war.
            They cant afford either…

          • Zionism = EVIL

            THE core of the Iran-China strategic partnership — no secret
            whatsoever since at least last year — revolves around a $400 billion
            Chinese investment in Iran’s energy and infrastructure for the next 25
            years. It’s all about securing a matter of supreme Chinese national
            interest: a steady supply of oil and gas, bypassing the dangerous
            bottleneck of the Strait of Malacca, secured with a median 18 per cent
            discount, and paid in yuan or in a basket of currencies bypassing the US
            dollar.

            Beijing will also invest roughly $228 billion in Iranian
            infrastructure — that’s where the AIIB comes in — over 25 years, but
            especially up to 2025. That ranges from building factories to badly
            needed energy industry renovation, all the way to the already in
            progress construction of the 900 kilometres-long electric rail from
            Tehran to Mashhad.

            Tehran, Qom and Isfahan will also be linked by high-speed rail — and
            there will be an extension to Tabriz, an important oil, gas and
            petrochemical node and the starting point of the Tabriz-Ankara gas
            pipeline.

            All of the above makes total sense in New Silk Road terms, as Iran is
            a key Eurasian crossroads. High-speed rail traversing Iran will connect
            Urumqi in Xinjiang to Tehran, via four of the Central Asian ‘stans’
            (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) all the way to
            West Asia, across Iraq and Turkey, and further on to Europe: a techno
            revival of the Ancient Silk Roads, where the main language of trade
            between East and West across the heartland was Persian.

            Their shale oil and gas is going belly up as well.

            It is surprising that even the UK papers are turning on the Zionists. This is the headline from Fairfax media:

            Israel learning a lesson in hubris as COVID cases soar

            The Zionist arseholes now have the second highest Pimpeovirus contamination and the are also rioting in the streets with official unemployment of 42% and the west itself is bankrupt as you say, so they are going down fast too.

            Iran’s future is a bright and prosperous one undoubtedly!!

            Well Said Z = E, thank you for breaking it down. Clearly this 25 year plan of cooperation between Iran and China has been in the works for quite some time. Israel and the Zionist controlled America will try and find ways to torpedo it if they can but I don’t think they will be able to as Iran’s defensive strength is too much for them and China’s ascent can’t be stopped by any means currently available to them outside of a shooting-war which America can very well lose outright.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Believe me, it is too late the stupid Jew cunts and their Americunt pigs can not do a damn thing. The Chinese are not people who walk away from anything. Look how they are supporting a deadbeat unstable and unreliable shithole like Pakistan, just because of long term strategic reasons and to wear down India.

            The Iran-China strategic partnership is yet another graphic demonstration of what could be deconstructed as the Chinese brand of collectivism: a collective mentality and enough organized planning capable of establishing a wide-ranging, win-win, economic, political and military partnership.

          • BlueInGreen

            Z = E, could you imagine the sort of joint-weapons that will be developed between Iran and China? Fighters, missiles, ships, Radars, Air-defense, Ballistic missiles, Drones, cyber-space…The list is nearly endless!!

            I’d imagine the later version of Iranian Ballistic Missiles and their appropriate launch control systems and firing methods will be second to none with the increased influx of Chinese assistance.

            We will also see (possibly) joint high-tech Fighters and Air Defense systems with near-peer if not more than capabilities since China will have open access to Indigenous Iranian military technology. The mutual benefits for both nations is nearly endless as far as I see it.

          • BlueInGreen

            I almost forgot, Pakistan will also probably get in on the action as well!

            Maybe we can see the formation of a new military alliance between Pakistan-Iran and China. Nobody would even dare touch Iran overtly if such an accord is struck.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Pakistan is unreliable and will most likely break up. It has 220 million poor people now and China is slowly distancing itself and has found Iran to be a good, rich and powerful ally. The Shah’s plan was to annex Baluchistan if Pakistan broke up and that is now a very strong possibility. Iran is more powerful on its own.

          • BlueInGreen

            Wow, I didn’t know this.

            So China over the years has been moving away from Pakistan due to internal Pakistan instability then?

            What do you think about India and Israel’s fate in the grander-scheme of things. I feel like the U.S.A. will try and make India more and more of a vassal state to be used against China.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Pisrael, honestly is a non entity and no threat to Iran, India again is a over-populated and weak state and has many internal problems, even thought it is now a Americunt vassal and has stiffed Iran many times on oil payments and nuclear issues, Iran has allowed it to use Chah Bahar to suplly Afghanistan, but Iran is s now playing in the bigger league, Iran has secured the Shia Cresent and its focus now is to build alliances with China and Russia (less so due to Jew control over Putin) and keep Turkey on side generally. Iran and Turkey are key players in the Muslim world. Stephan Kinzer even back in 2010 called them the future superpowers.

            I’ve always had reservations about Russia Z = E, I don’t hate them but they them to be “fair weather friends” at best. How comprised is Putin and Russia when it comes to Zionist influence?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            My friend, under Putin, Russia is very compromised and even the Chinese are having problems with it. Russian people are generally good, but they have very poor leadership historically. Even tried to support Russia on many occasions but was always backstabbed. Chinese are real friends, they came to Iran’s help during the Pimpeovirus instantly and without any conditions and the Iranian people really appreciated that. I think as Pepe Escobar and many others, including me believe, Iran and China relations are game changer. This is just the beginning of a new Eurasian world order or in other word’s the OLD WORD is back, the Chinese and Iranian civilizations go back 5,000 years at least.

          • BlueInGreen

            It’s gonna be an interesting future Z=E!!

            China has always held a special place in my heart, as an Iranian-American myself they mean quite a bit to me since our ancestors have been in constant correspondence for thousands of years. I think there is almost a biological bias in my DNA to like China so-to-speak lmao. Jokes aside though, China isn’t nearly as bad as what some idiots like to make it out as. What I really do commend China on is its way of expanding. It seeks to make both parties involved strong. Not just itself, which is just rare these days.

            I hear China’s diplomatic, economic and most importantly, cultural outreach. within Iran has expanded quite bit in the past decade with many Iranian students taking up Mandarin/Cantonese classes as well as going to China to study. Many more Chinese will come to Iran as tourist and hopefully many will come to stay in Iran as well to deepen ties between these two ancient peoples/cultures!!

            Ey khodahyeh bozorg, please make the future prosperous for all those who hearts don’t bear evil.

          • Ivan Freely

            The US may try to turn India into a vassal state but they will fail.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I hope so, Modi is a cunt created by the CIA like Erdogan, but the Congress Party has always been nationalistic and will never accept India to be turned into a new Raj.

          • Simon Ndiritu

            It will be very expensive and untenable for the US to control India in the medium to long run. The Hollow US will lack the resources to keep all the diverse group in India happy and hence pliable. I think the US has a very short window of manipulating India, which is limited to Modi’s era and a short period when the US has some money and favors to through around.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            India at one stage was quite progressive and a leader of the non-aligned world, but Manmohan Singh, also on CIA payroll since he was bureaucrat slowly took India in the Bilderberg exploitation vassal stage and the average Indian’s lot even became worse with rising inequity and massive purchases of western junk weapons, even more than the Saudi idiots, but without any oil or resources. Then the Zionists and CIA installed Modi a queer “Hindu nationalist” and set India on the road to ruin. India is now in terrible shape with a totally collapsed economy, rising unemployment and tensions with all its neighbors, including tiny Nepal now. The Americunt arseholes and the limeys are pushing major conflict in the region, but hopefully there are a few sensible people left in India as the Zionist instigated mass repression in Kashmir is alienating the 200 Million Muslims and other ethnic groups. India has problems from Assam to Sikhs.

            Indeed once the Commonwealth is back to trade,seeya cia/eu-epp/nwo!

          • Simon Ndiritu

            In My view, It is difficult to turn large and diverse country like India into a vassal. Note that India is a mix of different entities and interests and commiting to anyting is always a product to tough balancing and compromises between parties, regions and sometimes religious groups. In the long run, ensuring that India always follows US commands is complicated and sometimes expensive when US point-man such as Modi is not in power. If you look at history, vassals are usually tiny and monolithic states, like South Korea, Singapore, UAE, Oman, and Georgia etc. The list is really endless. The point is, Vassals are those whose decisions can be influenced by coercing or buying a few guys and their monolithic nature makes the rest of the population to follow suit.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Iran is making immense headway in rearming, the Chinese upgraded the Americunt Hellfire and yesterday Iran announced that all its 400 attack helicopters will be armed with it. It is a shame that the media ignores the TRUTH.

            IRGC Ground Force’s Airborne Division furnished its Bell 214
            helicopters with a new air-to-surface missile, known as the Iranian
            version of American AGM-114 Hellfire missile, but with a great range of 100 kms.

            The weapons mountedon the IRGC’s Bell 214 and Toophan attack helicopter are dubbed “Qaem-114” missiles, a newgeneration of the Qaem-class smart bombs.

            An Iranian missilesimilar to the US-made AGM-114 Hellfire was for the first time unveiledin November 2013, when the Iranian Defense Ministry introduced the
            strategic homegrown drone dubbed “Fotros”.

            That’s the problem. You didn’t read it carefully and think about it first. You hate America first and everything you think is America is bad. You try to find anything even if illogical to make an absurd point. This is the same mentality of left wing Americans like Dem party.

            First, the US stayed out of WWI until they were asked to help by Democratic nations. US stayed out of WWII until they were attacked first.

            U.S. put the nazis in power, financed adolf and the nazi party from the start.
            At least 10 major U.S. companies helped build the german warmachine, plus banks like Chase Manhattan with Wannaber Bush and Co…
            Nazi racial theories were also based on U.S. Eugenics, propagated in Germany by the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, with Rockefeller funding of course…
            At the same time the U.S. put a total sanction on Imperial Japan.
            They knew the attack would come.
            They also wiretapped the Japanese embassy in the U.S.
            They knew the fleet was on its way to attack the U.S.
            Two days before Pearl a U.S. destroyer rammed a japanse sub they suffered damage, and reported it back.
            Yet with that knowledge U.S. did nothing.
            Even when radar stations saw the coming air fleet and warned the HQ, nothing was done.
            They wanted it to happen.
            They needed a good reason to enter the war to convince the people.
            Interestingly non of the carriers were at Pearl that day, they were all north east from Hawaii around 350miles.

            I find people who are uneducated and have not picked up a history book that only rely on their group think sites to be parrots.

            You are just repeating drivel I have heard many times about the US and Jew haters.

            I’ll try to educate you but I doubt it will work.

            US Companies and banks were dealing with the country of Germany since the start of colonies in the US of 1600s. Halter came to power legally through a democratic election. It was not until later changed to a dictator that the US can legally impose sanctions and prevent trade.

            Go do some research and tell me one US bank or company that was still dealing with Germany after sep 1 1939?

            This would be the same logic if 100 years from no that same exact thing happens with China and you say we built China and it’s our fault for destroying China.

            Don’t be a fool. Go read from multiple sites and multiple books from people you hate and despise then compare it to the people you trust the most and see where the difference are then use a 3rd party that is friendly with both sides to see what they say who is right or wrong. Everyone will always protect their tribe and their tribe is never wrong.

            Send me link with page numbers or location. It better be a real history book and well sourced and documented. It needs to be published in a democratic nation from a person who is living in free nation and is able to say what they want without any threat to them. It must show financing after Sep 1 1939. Anything before that means nothing. Otherwise don’t waste your time.

        • BlueInGreen

          America is in a really bad way right now economically, more importantly a tell-tale sign of an empire collapsing is social unrest/upheaval and clearly the United States is in the terminal stage of its decline which nothing it can do would be able to alleviate it from its inevitable demise.

          This upcoming election will either make or break America, literally and figuratively speaking. With unemployment still in the 10’s of millions and people general disgruntled by the way America has handled COVID-19. Things could very well take a turn for the worse. Right now we see violence in American cities has spiked to over 400% in some areas with daily shootings and weekend deaths tallying up into the dozens dead. Various areas of America have become what can only be classified as “third-world” and this is a trend I believe will take-over more of the United-States and might seep into traditionally affluent areas.

          idk, Americans (in general) have become markedly more violent and uncivilized which stands as a testament to the possible collapse of American society in the future.

    Officers in the surface fleet treat their people like dirt. And the atmosphere of political correctness is beyond oppressive. Now imagine that while quarantined on board a ship with the coronavirus rampant. No wonder suicides are so frequent.

    Someone who was in the navy told me that in the early 2000’s there was more methamphetamine on board his ship than in a redneck trailer park. I can’t imagine that has changed much either.

    Anyway, this low morale can be expressed as “no one really gives a shit”. And that’s probably a big contributing factor in this fire.

      why would political correctness affect morale? who joins the military because they need to express their political views? BS

        Why would PC affect morale? Just look at society in general. The effects can be seen. Besides, it’s the top brass that push down this shit.

    “Jones was born and grew up in Scotland, became a sailor, and served as commander of several British merchant ships. After having killed one of his crew members with a sword, he fled to the Colony of Virginia and around 1775 joined the newly founded Continental Navy in their fight against Britain in the American Revolutionary War. He commanded U.S. Navy ships stationed in France and led one single assault on England, which resulted in a failure, and few on British merchant ships. Left without a command in 1787, he joined the Imperial Russian Navy and obtained the rank of rear admiral. …

    In 1779, Captain Jones took command of the 42-gun USS Bonhomme Richard,[28] a merchant ship rebuilt and given to America by the French shipping magnate, Jacques-Donatien Le Ray. On August 14, as a vast French and Spanish invasion fleet approached England, he provided a diversion by heading for Ireland at the head of a five ship squadron including the 36-gun USS Alliance, 32-gun USS Pallas, 12-gun USS Vengeance, and Le Cerf, also accompanied by two privateers, Monsieur and Granville”

      “In 1905, Jones’s remains were identified by U.S. Ambassador to France Gen. Horace Porter, who had searched for six years to track down the body using faulty copies of Jones’s burial record.

      After Jones’s death, Frenchman Pierrot Francois Simmoneau donated over 460 francs to mummify the body. It was preserved in alcohol and interred in a lead coffin “in the event that should the United States decide to claim his remains, they might more easily be identified.” Porter knew what to look for in his search. With the aid of an old map of Paris, Porter’s team, which included anthropologist Louis Capitan, identified the site of the former St. Louis Cemetery for Alien Protestants. Sounding probes were used to search for lead coffins and five coffins were ultimately exhumed. The third, unearthed on April 7, 1905, was later identified by a post-mortem examination by Doctors Capitan and Georges Papillault as being that of Jones. …

      Jones’s body was brought to the United States aboard the USS Brooklyn (CA-3), escorted by three other cruisers. On approaching the American coastline, seven U.S. Navy battleships joined the procession escorting Jones’s body back to America. On April 24, 1906, Jones’s coffin was installed in Bancroft Hall at the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, following a ceremony in Dahlgren Hall, presided over by President Theodore Roosevelt who gave a speech paying tribute to Jones and holding him up as an example to the officers of the Navy.[38] On January 26, 1913, the Captain’s remains were finally re-interred in a magnificent bronze and marble sarcophagus at the Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis.”

          “Over a century later, a search began to find the body of John Paul Jones for the purpose of returning his remains to the United States. The American Ambassador to France, General Horace Porter, personally led in the research to relocate the forgotten cemetery, provided the funds to excavate the casket and coordinated the efforts to repatriate the mortal remains of the great naval hero. Correspondence, antique maps and other records in the French national library and archives provided Ambassador Porter the information which helped in the discovery of the built-over cemetery. After weeks of tunneling through basement walls and streets, the casket of Jones was found and disinterred.

          Remarkably, his corpse, which had been wrapped in a winding cloth and placed in straw and alcohol in a tightly sealed lead casket, was nearly perfectly preserved. He was taken to the University of Paris where a complete autopsy was performed. There the head of the corpse was compared to the sculptured portrait bust of Jones executed in 1780 by Jean Antoine Houdon, who had taken a plaster impression directly for his subjects’s head. The autopsy and forensic study proved conclusively that the body was John Paul Jones. He had died of the kidney ailment nephritis, complicated by pneumonia.”
