Should have come ashore. Pretty sure someone would have shown them a good time.

Really, man. No need to be sneaky about it.

The sub was discovered about 275 miles off the southern East Coast in international waters about two weeks ago and has been followed by the Navy since, defense officials said

Oh no, our surveillance systems worked!

Scary? Really subs?

You do realize that they were in INTERNATIONAL waters, right?

Naval powers do this shiat all the time in INTERNATIONAL waters.

I'm sure I could find at least one or two on a ship full of Russian dudes who would suit my tastes.

I have to say, the Russian accent isn't the sexiest of accents. But I guess it's exotic enough..

There are real beauties in their late teens but they wear badly. Poor diet, bad hygiene and alcohol. At 25 they look forty. At forty-five they're ready to cash in.

I think the point is that we would never dream of doing the same and sending one of our subs to within 275 miles of their territory, because we're better than that.

I can't stress this enough but this is really cause to panic. I would contact the media and congress and demand they take action.

/the above is completely unrelated to my job working for a defense contractor making submarine parts.
 
2012-11-08 09:53:48 AM  
Submarines should be non issue for Americans.The only countries with submarines that have much hope of remaining undetected by American submarines are allied with the Americans, and even then it's a slim hope.
 
2012-11-08 09:54:02 AM  
This was just a case of the Russians trying to be sneaky and the US Navy not just pointing out that, yes, we 'can' hear you guys out there in your very loud, very obvious boats...But, also pointing it out to the world.

This was a very direct pointed reminder that our 'listening' tech is better than their 'sneaking' tech and we showed it to the world. It was a simple and polite humiliating of their sub Navy.

The captain of that sub boat is likely to spend the short remainder of his career submitting reports about the number of pigeons on the dock he's been reassigned to guarding.

Wow, some fast boat crew got to do something interesting for a while on a routine underway, that's for damn sure. You just can't buy training opportunities like that one.
 
2012-11-08 09:54:58 AM  
The public announcement is the US Navy's polite way of telling the Russians "New submarine class? Yeah, we found you. Try harder next time"

So.. An attack sub (not a ballistic missile sub) comes close to u.s. waters but remains in international waters, and this is something Russia even told us it was going to do... And were supposed to panic?

We will pass through the American patrols, past their sonar nets, and lay off their largest city, and listen to their rock and roll... while we conduct missile drills.

Exactly. They let them dream on for a while and this is just showing them that they were pwned all along.

I disagree--it's not his fault that his equipment wasn't up to the job. I think his superiors sent him out to find out of it could be done and they just got their answer.

Bingo. This isn't "scary". The job of an attack sub is to not get detected. That it did means it didn't do its job very well. A missile sub getting near the country, that could be worrying as there isn't a good reason for that, other than as provocation or a real attack. However an attack sub is only useful if it can silently track ships and thus be ready to attack. This one obviously couldn't.

We like sensationalism. Just like how the media loses their shiat every time a Russian bomber says hi to a carrier battle group, a Russian sub in international waters makes for a good story for people who have no sense of perspective and like to get excited about things.
 
2012-11-08 10:01:38 AM  
Let me know when they use a diesel sub.

/Or a motorboat.
 
2012-11-08 10:02:17 AM  
I wouldn't be too worried about this. We do this to other nations and other nations do it to us. It's just been a long time since someone's had the ability as well as the will to do this. We are actively patrolling with our SURTASS ships outside of China's FBM sub ports complete with guided missile destroyer escort. It's all just military d1ck waving.   Link

The Russian system couldn't possibly be more different than our own. We can, and have, sent our men out knowing that they would fail. We plan for it.

The Russians, on the other hand, do not think like this. He was not only beaten, but publicly humiliated and humiliated the Russian people, government and Putin in the process.

If this was the Soviet days, he'd be arrested, his family arrested, with him getting shot and his family sent to a lumber camp in Siberia.

As it is, he'll be 'reassigned' to a career-ending position counting trees out in the wilderness and some other Russian captain will take his slot.

Russian leaders do not look upon failure kindly.
