In Light of Another Nuclear Accident, Where is Admiral Kirkland Donald Resignation

OK...with the over night accident in the Straight of Hormuz where a Nuclear Attack Submarine almost sank one of our own ships, its time to demand the resignation of Admiral Kirkland Donald because of his FAILED LEADERSHIP. This is one too many NUCLEAR SUB accidents, and we as a nation cannot wait for a MAJOR breach of a on board reactor to ask Admiral Kirkland Donald to step down...maybe he can replace Admiral Skip Bowman at NEI...they seem to like inept, even dishonest leadership.
