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.

Scary? Really subs?

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

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

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.

Russia and its ally China are just gearing up for the next world war.

They're recruiting useful idiots now, including on internet sites like Fark

To be a true useful idiot, you need to talk a lot about how it's unfair for the USA to be such a bully and defend its own interests, and how we should just be friends with the people who want to destroy us so we can feel all enlightened and stuff.

Biness: Cybernetic: They're just reminding Obama that he's supposed to be more flexible now that the election is over.

This sub story is just a scare tactic spoon feed to CNN to try and keep us wasting massive amounts of money on the military. If we were worried about the Russians would we let a US Frigate dock and have shore leave in Russia? The Captain and crew went out drinking and are now fired.... This country can't seem to function without a Boogieman to keep everyone scared.

GAT_00: 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!


They should've just tracked it secretly, without announcing anything or giving themselves away. Then, a few months from now, just quietly send Russia a complete and detailed map of every move their sub made.

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?

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"

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.

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