Nice. It looks so new that this might be its maiden voyage.

Just waiting to hear the news of foreign warships parked off of the east and west coasts of America.

WWI was started over something just as stupid as this.


Yes. It's frightening.

I remember helping "plot dots" during war games in the 90s. The Med is always stupid crowded. It was kind of like trying to have a laser tag fight in a mall at Christmas time.

Wonder if anyone is using underwater drones that mimic Russian subs.

Imagine being in command of a US Destroyer and getting false readings of Ivan surrounding you.

The homo moslem CIC is pathetic.

Saab — yes, Saab — has built an amphibious drone meant to keep submarine crews on their toes.

The Saab AUV62 is a highly sophisticated autonomous underwater vehicle that mimics a submarine, allowing navies to train for anti-submarine warfare as realistically as possible without blowing up expensive submarines.

Though it’s an unmanned vehicle, the AUV62′s unique acoustic payload means it will show up on sonar screens as an enemy sub. It’s essentially the underwater equivalent of skeet shooting, except with torpedoes.

According to Saab, the battery-powered AUV62 can either be preprogrammed to follow a particular underwater route, using collision detection to avoid other vessels, or a remote operator can control it using either a radio or acoustic link. It can travel at speeds as fast as 20 knots, and it can descend to more than 1,640 feet below the surface. It’s possible to launch the AUV62 from the shore, from a submarine, or from a ship — as shown above.

Though several military customers have already ordered AUV62s for anti-submarine target practice, the undersea Saab has abilities other than getting blasted out of the water during training missions. Depending on how it’s configured, it can be used for minesweeping and reconnaissance. The Swedish military has already deployed the AUV62 for such purposes

Maybe Obama can start World War III?

That would take everyone's mind off Benghazi and the other scandals.

Chinese Army sends warships to Syria

Does the Chinese navy know? (^_^)

Actually I think all of the armed forces of the PRC are considered part of the "Peoples' Liberation Army", so bizarre as it seems, the description of the action given in the article is correct.

I suppose something was lost in translation but wouldn’t that be the Chinese NAVY? Don’t want to put too fine a point on it but where would the Chicoms land an amphibian in the ME? Another story that probably requires the BS flag be thrown, wiped, and stuffed in the appropriate orifice of the writer.

If the Homo starts WWIII, the left would find a way to blame W and Cheney.

Paraphrasing another leftist idiot: “The only way to find out what’s in a war is to start one.”

I’d imagine that the Chinese have filled the hold with as many different kinds of surveillance equipment as they could find. If Obama gets his way, the Chinese could get info about not only US systems, but NATO, Russian, Israeli, and Iranian ones because everyone will light up when those missiles get launched.

Their navy, the ‘People Liberation Army Navy’, has a name that makes you go, “Huh?”

Kinda like a major political party in Canada (federally from 1942 - 2003 and still named that way in the provinces) called the ‘Progressive Conservative Party’... “Huh?”

Now that they have a ‘blue water’ navy, if they separated the navy from the army and created a group like the Marines, would that group be called the’People Liberation Navy Army’?

“Not in any way involved with the potential conflict”

Uhh, ok. Given there are so many ships in the area, who is to say an unfortunate accident won’t occur? I guess the Chinese would be less than amused should one of their ships end up struck.

Is this our next war? A shooting war in the Med with China and the Soviets?? America is going to be in deep trouble. Our only defense against both of them are nukes.

PS to my above post. This is an excerpt from an article I read earlier this week. Interesting stuff:

If humanitarian reasons were enough to intervene in a sovereign nation’s affairs, why aren’t we attacking North Korea or China? You know the answer. The Russians and Chinese possess formidable weapons technology and the willingness to use them. The Chinese have an overwhelming cyber-attack capability. So too, they possess cutting edge satellite-killing orbital weapons and space-based weapons platforms. Of interest, some Chinese satellites have altered orbits recently amazing and concerning US defense experts.

The Chinese have also perfected super-sonic, ship-killing missiles that even US aircraft carriers can’t evade or defend against. The Russians have similar anti-ship missile capability, top-notch anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems combined with the most advanced military aircraft in the world. They’ve also developed a super-cavitating torpedo that creates a gas bubble in front of the fired torpedo, which allows for much greater speed than a conventional torpedo. Notice a pattern here? Speed kills in the combat environment.

The US currently has no known defense against these weapons. Our current anti-missile systems can’t lock onto and destroy these Russian and Chinese missiles. They’re too fast. We have had some success with prototype laser missile interceptors but nothing’s ready to be deployed. Thus, the US Navy is extraordinarily vulnerable to such attacks.

I don’t have to remind you of the respective Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilites. Let me make a bold statement here. I don’t think Obama would authorize a nuclear counter-strike in the event of a nuclear attack on the US. (Just my opinion.) We’d absorb the strike without a response. I have no information to suggest this, it’s just a gut feeling I have.

Yet one way or the other, the US is determined to attack Syria. By the way, any attack on Syria will precipitate an attack on Israel by Syria, Iran and Hezbollah. Israel will respond, possibly bringing the destruction of Damascus as described in Isaiah 17. Don’t worry about Israel. They will be okay. Once Israel realizes that God is their true security, and beseech Him, He will answer.

Russia too, is reported to be ready to attack Saudi Arabia in retaliation. The US and world economy will be destroyed, no matter what else happens.

That’s the plan. That’s what this is all about. Obama cares nothing about this country. His job is to destroy it. I can’t say it more clearly.

You might be thinking that we’re the US, we’re the world superpower, and somehow we’ll prevail. Realize that a nation’s greatness depends on the providence of God. We are an arrogant, proud people who defy God with our wickedness. Do you think God will grant victory to a military and nation that openly praises homosexuality? To a President who pushes Islam and attacks Christianity at every chance? To a formerly Christian nation that relies solely on its own perceived might?

Does this madness make any sense? It does to Satan and those who further his agenda. The ultimate goal is subjugation of the entire world under one man: the Antichrist. Syria is the linchpin. It’s where the escalating conflict starts. The rest of this year will be very interesting.

An individual that I know, a person (in the know), is particularly concerned about an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. An EMP would destroy such things as computers, utilities, communications and transportation. We would effectively be pushed on a technological level back to the 1890s. A blue ribbon panel appointed by Congress came to the conclusion that such an attack would see 90% casualty rate in the US within 18 months after the event.

If my friend is concerned, it’s something to consider. Read up on EMP effects.

Some would like to believe these sold-out deceivers, as they come on television and plead with us to believe their lies just one more time. The same people that lie about Benghazi, the IRS targeting Obama’s enemies, the NSA spying on every American, and the Justice Department tapping reporters phones and computers. How about operation Fast and Furious selling guns to Mexican drug cartels so that the Obama Administration could point to gun violence in Mexico to justify gun control in the US?

This administration has amply proven that they’ll lie, cover-up and shed blood to further their plans. To them, dead bodies are only useful props.

Beware another false flag event. If they don’t get the desired public opinion turnaround to go ahead with attacking Syria, they might just pull off another, more spectacular provocation. Of course those who perpetrate such things are also in charge of the ensuing investigation. How convenient.

As example, this past week Secretary of State John Kerry was caught using a photo from 2003 Iraq, claiming it pictured the victims of the chemical attack last month. That photo was identified for what it was and promptly removed from Kerry’s “evidence.”

Bungling incompetence or another willful lie? As Hillary would say, what does it matter? We know the character of these people. I believe nothing they say. Absolutely nothing.
