    I don't know anything about that source. But if it's true, looks like CWII, here we come.

    From the article..........

    "It is only the second time since 2009 that a Russian attack submarine has patrolled so close to U.S. shores."

    That they know of.

    And how does he know that the USN didn't know where it was?

    yea i don't know anything about the source either. and i honestly don't see an incentive for provocative actions like this on russia's part. but i thought it was worth noting.

    We do the same thing - only difference is, they are aware of it.

    No they aren't at least not specifically... Tromso Norway was an awesome and beautiful liberty port by the way, oh sorry that has nothing to do with this thread, I was just reminising of my submarine days in my head.

    I would also like to note that if a US Submarine does (really)not want to be tracked or detected, there is NO vessel in any navy that can track her including ours...trust me on this.

    Let's suppose for a minute that a Russian sub did actually patrol in the Gulf of Mexico.
    So?
    The Gulf of Mexico is not Lake Michigan. We don't own it. What is part of the mission of the U.S. Navy? Ensuring freedom of the seas?
    Just because an un-named source says that we did not detect it does not mean it is so.
