Chinese Sub Pops Up Undetected Near U.S.S. Kitty Hawk During Exercise

Quote:Hot Air posted this story earlier today and it should shake your sense of security at least a little.

An unexpected visit by a Chinese Submarine that went undetected in the middle of a Pacific Ocean Naval exercise and came extremely close to the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk, has American military chiefs looking for answers.

The sub was apparently able to slip past at least a dozen U.S. warships, two U.S. submarines and a vast array of advanced technology, which failed to detect it.

When the Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, they take the security of the aircraft carriers very seriously. At least a dozen warships are used to provide a physical guard, and using advanced technology they are able to detect and deter any potential intruders.

By the time the Chinese sub surfaced, the 160ft Song Class diesel-electric attack submarine sailed within viable range for launching torpedoes or missiles at the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk, a 1,000ft. super carrier with 4,500 military personnel on-board.

According to senior NATO officials, the incident caused a sense of sudden fear in the U.S. Navy, as officials realized the seriousness of the encounter. The U.S. apparently had no idea just how sophisticated China’s fast-growing submarine fleet had become, or that they even posed such a threat.

Analysts believe that China was sending a message to the United States and the West by demonstrating their rapidly growing military capability to threaten foreign powers that might try to interfere in their own “backyard.”

The U.S. Navy and Nato are now forced to re-think their strategy, and reconsider the level of threat posed from potentially hostile Chinese submarines.

But us and China were supposed to go hand-in-hand into a bright new future because of close trade relations.

*sarcasm*
Did you resell Red October?
It's an old story. Bottom line,those here who think our Navy is vastly superior are ivicitms of hubris. I shared that nonsense,so don't get offended.

When an Iranian jet flies over your ship so close you can see the Iranian flag on it and your radar didn't see it at all,you figure out you're not such hot stuff . That happened on my son's ship. I don't need to read of Chinese subs.
