By calling it an “attack sub” it is made to sound incendiary, but it isn’t.

Uh...a Sierra-2 IS an attack sub.

The Russians have figured out that they can cruise the U.S. coastline with impunity.

Two things:

1. The grammar of my sentence makes it seems like I am not aware that the sub is an attack sub due to the placement of “but it isn’t”. What I meant was that it was not incendiary because we are not in a state of conflict with Russia.

2. What would you suggest that the US do when those subs approach the US coast? Should we sink down some depth charges and start a war? Also, isn’t 200 miles the extended economic zone. Anything beyond it - and the article does not indicate that it was closer than this - would still be completely international waters.
