    Projection of power. Russia is trying to return to a bipolar world order.

    Probably dropping off a shipment of beef that the government bought to store at the FEMA death camps. We would have used our own ships to transport it but our navy is busy helping NASA fake another moon landing.

    Also, I know the article says that is a Russian sub, but honestly, it looks more like a water moccasin to me.

    I blame Hollywood. They just miss making movies & shows where a Russian spy/soldier/pilot befriends an American spy/soldier/pilot & they team up for a common good until the last 5 minutes when the Russian either betrays the American or is mortally wounded and says "Komrad, please make sure I'm buried in the Motherland."

    Or something like that.

    I'd like to think a US Navy sub had him locked up the whole time, and the Russian didn't know it. We just let them think we didn't know. :cool:

    Maybe on vacation scoping out the chicks on the beach? Don't ask why the parascope is sticky.

    I'd say Russia is still a player.....the problem is we have an apologizer in the White House!

    Probably the sub sailors got tired of sharing and ogling over the calendar photos of Ms. Russia January, February, March,..... December. So they decided to go somewhere where there are miles of beaches filled with curvy, glistening with oil, tanned, shapely female bodies.

    After all, they're sailors who've been at sea for months!

    I heard they're looking for a good seafood joint in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

    Seriously, I think their subs have been doing this pretty much since the fifties, and so have ours. I sleep better at night knowing we can nuke them to smithereens, and they can do the same to us. That's how detente and pax atomica works. What scares me more than Russian subs in the Gulf are the nameless terrorist groups who know that no matter what they do, we have nobody to retaliate against.
