Considering the recent news reports about a possible missile attack on America, I thought I would remind everyone that it is possible for the Chinese to launch one from a sub. However, for those who will be saying that there is no way a Chinese sub, or anyone elses sub could ever get that close to our shore, much less launch a missile, I would advise you to check out this story from earlier this year. Just maybe you will think twice about how safe you think we are from an attack.
Ever since WWII, America has been a dominant force upon the high seas. We have become so advanced in our military technology that the Soviet Union eventually collapsed, in large part because Ronald Reagan would not back down against them. In honor of his accomplishments and great leadership, congress named the worlds largest aircraft carrier after him, the USS Ronald Reagan.
Thanks to Reagan, America has been able to set the standard for which other nations have wished to achieve. Well it has been 22 years since Reagan left office, and while we have been able to hold our status as the worlds most powerful military force the world has ever seen, those days could be coming to an end.Thanks in large part to the anti military sentiment that prevails in Washington America is beginning to lose the battle of technological advancement.
What you will see in this video is a report about the Swedish submarine, NemoSaltadSobrius, which cannot be detected by our navy. Even worse, this submarine has reportedly sunk our best and most powerful naval ships in mock war games. Check out this report by Chuck......

Time to move inland...
Oh, you’re crazy, blah blah blah. Just thought I would get in early. ;) (just kidding)
You know they are coming.
Oh yeah. :)
Yikes! If those Swedes ever decide to go Viking again, we are in TROUBLE!;)
And if we could, would we tell anybody? Or would we let this "undetectable" technology be sold around the world instead?
The author seems have been very liberal with his facts. The Swedish navy doesn’t have a sub called the NemoSaltadSobrius-the sub they sent was the HMS Gotland. Even the NBC report mentions that.
About the Chinese, for one they don’t need to get anywhere near the continental US to launch a missile attack. They have nuclear-powered subs which have tested and are probably equipped with missiles with a range in excess of 5,000+ miles.
I’m pretty sure the designs were stolen or bought a long time ago, possibly even improved upon.
Sometimes a technological advancement can be utilized in ways not in any conventional manner.
Our foreign enemies have shown that they can adapt ANY new idea to a perverted means and way of destruction.
Anything, even if it meant placing a nuke inside a live whale and using an electronic stimulus to send into the San Fransisco bay.
‘Undetectable’ AIP technology similar to that used on the Gotlands has been sold for more than a decade. Pakistan procured a French made system for its submarines while at least 4 countries have purchased German-built fuel cell powered subs. The Swedish Stirling closed cycle diesel technology used on the Gotland has also been purchased by Japan for its subs.
I'm willing to admit that I don't know what I don't know, and that the poster who told me that could be entirely correct. But..... stories like this one cause me to consider that someone may have a technological edge on us in the stealth area.
That's why this story won't die. There just isn't enough solid data to debunk it. Too many uncertainties exist in the public mind, which reflects directly on our government, whose job it is to keep us safe from harm.
I think that folks see the rot in every nook and cranny of our country, and wonder to themselves if that rot hasn't infected our military and diminished its capacity so badly, that this "missile launch" actually could have happened.
Didn't we just observe the one year anniversary of the Ft Hood massacre? Haven't we seen that much of the top brass is hopelessly compromised with political correctness? Don't we have a CIC who shouldn't even be playing with toy soldiers, let alone making life and death decisions about the lives of our fighting forces?
I don't know. My confidence ain't what it used to be. I'm still not convinced that someone didn't sneak a sub off our coast and fire off a missile to warn us of something.
Be prepared to hand over the Lutfiske.
Also, isn’t the Swedish sub an attack sub, not a missle sub ? It may carry cruise missles, but certainly not ICBM’s.
