    "The submarine patrol also exposed what U.S. officials said were deficiencies in U.S. anti-submarine warfare capabilities—forces that are facing cuts under the Obama administration’s plan to reduce defense spending by $487 billion over the next 10 years."

    Between this and the guy climbing over the NY airport fence undetected we're really on our toes when it comes to security.

    That was a pretty gutsy move by the Russkie. There are basically only two ways in or out of the gulf and easy to bottle up.

    Maybe it was Russia that launched the missile off the coast of California?

    Ron Paul kinda said we should get more subs. One more thing, Ron Paul is right on one thing we cannot exchange our liberty for a security.

    That is a gross mischaracterization of what Paul said. He said we could defend the nation with submarines. And a few other odd defense statements.

    Subs are only one tool in anti submarine warfare.

    I'm sure that he won't object to order more subs and P-8s.

  9. I believe it was under Clinton with his “Peace Dividend” they got rid of some of the sub hunting aircraft capabilities. Not sure which aircraft was eliminated but it was one whole category.

    Don't think his support or lack of it will be much an issue as a private citizen. Other people will be making those decisions.

    I'm also doubting that nobody in the USN knew that boat was there.

    More likely, they shadowed it the whole time and its the Russkies that got fooled into thinking they were alone. :supergrin:
