Who was the CNO's "Crash?"

You know what came to mind when I read this about the 19th International Seapower Symposium?
The navies of the world are undergoing a “time of great challenges” when “the stakes are massive,” the U.S. Navy’s top officer told a gathering of sea service heads Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters later, Roughead put the stakes into a naval context describing human trafficking, drug smuggling and terrorism as modern “tragedies.”
Russia and Georgia, which clashed briefly but violently in 2008, both sent military representatives.

Roughead took it as a good sign.

“I think it’s pretty positive they’re both here in the same room,” he said.
Well, watch this clip.

I would bet you a beer at Gritty's that the CNO, deep down, can't stand these things.
