    The U.S. Coast Guard stopped a submarine carrying 16,000 pounds of cocaine off the coast of South America, part of a $569 million drug bust, officials said Thursday.

    A semi-submersible was navigating through the waters when a member of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro leaped onto the partially submerged vessel as it was moving and broke open the hatch

    The CG should have raked that boat with machine gun fire until it stopped then board it. The driver could have opened the hatch and shot that soldier right off the deck.

    Possible, and glad that did not happen. I would have dropped flash bang in the boat, removed the bad guys and scuttled the boat.

    The driver of that sub must have been thinking that he had the entire ocean to himself and nobody around. Bet he crapped his underoos when he heard someone knocking on the door!!

    That's kind of my thinking also, very risky move banging on the hatch. Should have just created a few openings below the waterline and waited.

    When I was in we'd have tore the hatch off and installed a toilet seat.

    I do not know how to define courage, but I know when I see it. Those CG fellows have guts.

    These guys have been catching semi submersible drug vessels for decades now. I trust them to know what they're doing.

    Is there anything in the rules of engagement where they couldn't fire on it?

    A very illustrious history:

    MUNRO HISTORY
    The United States Coast Guard Cutter MUNRO was commissioned on September 27, 1971, at Avondale Shipyard in New Orleans, Louisiana. The tenth of twelve 378-foot cutters, MUNRO was the first to be named after a Coast Guard hero - Signalman First Class Douglas Munro. The ship's original compliment included 17 officers and 143 enlisted men, under the ship's first Commanding Officer, Captain John T. Rouse.

    The dedication of the ship took place on April 15, 1972, at MUNRO's first homeport of Boston, Massachusetts. Secretary of Transportation John A. Volpe was on hand, retelling the story of Douglas Munro and reminding the crew of the honor they had as namesake of the Coast Guard's only Medal of Honor recipient. While operating out of Boston, the ship's original missions included ocean station patrols and search and rescue.
