When speaking about subs...have the Canadian sailors learned to close the hatches of their subs during rough seas?
So ... if it happened a year ago that means it didn't happen right?
The fact is that it is peace time and they were not looking for subs. Anyone who knows anything about a peace time Navy would know that you don't go pinging the oceans when there is no threat. As excited as you all got today over this incident that happened a year ago the Chinese Navy is not a threat.
Oh it happened I was just laughing at how slow you folks are to the point. It must be getting cold up there.
Another thing after further research it was not during any ASW practice. Even if it was and they were discovered there would not be much we could do about it. We are not at war and there is a thing called freedom of the seas. When I was a Marine onboard a Navy ship the Soviets used to follow us all through the Mediterranean...even during war games. They would be right off our starboard quarter. Soviet Bears would fly over our ships. You can't shoot them down.
We're slow? We're just people on a forum. Slow is the folks with the dumb looks when a sub popped to the surface in the midst of a high seas boating party. Doesn't really matter if it wasn't during any ASW drill ... or is Be Prepared only applicable to Boy Scouts?
The in and out holes aren't called hatches in the Canadian Royal Imperial Navy, there known as plugs.
Well it was your arrogance that ran you into a topic that you know very little about. Your post proves that.
Magnetic anomality and "bow bulge" (on those calm days) are completely passive and don't require a lot of brainpower. Even a Marine could do it....
That is why simpletons like you cannot grasp the concept and when you are exposed you resort to name calling and constant trolling.
You can always tell when you have lost a debate because you drop yourself to DB Level. I pity you at times.
ES,Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
This event happened during a military exercise. The point of military exercises is to prove battle readiness. An undetected Chinese sub in the middle of an military exercise was a major coup for the Chinese. Another way of looking at this is that the Chinese sub did the US Navy a favor. Its far better that the US navy learned that Chinese subs can sneak up on their aircraft carriers during a peacetime exercise than during the war.
Why is it so hard for Americans to give credit to other nations? Your comments make you look arrogant and wilfully ignorant. So your pride was wounded. Get over it.
I doubt many Canadians wish harm to American servicemen. I know I certainly don't. Americans should realize that Canada is a close friend. No we don't go along with everything the US does. That's our perogative as a sovereign nation. Canada did not join the US in Iraq because our leaders decided that Iraq was not a threat the US, despite pre-war propaganda to the contrary. Turned out our leaders were right and I am proud of that. Canada didn't help the US in Vietnam either for the same reason. Given our track record of picking our wars wisely, maybe Americans should pay closer attention to which wars Canada supports and which ones we don't. That way you might have avoided Vietnam and now Iraq.
BTW, Canada has never lost a war, including ones we fought against the US...
