I guess standards have slipped around here recently.

American military chiefs have been left dumbstruck by an undetected Chinese submarine popping up at the heart of a recent Pacific exercise and close to the vast U.S.S. Kitty Hawk - a 1,000ft supercarrier with 4,500 personnel on board.

By the time it surfaced the 160ft Song Class diesel-electric attack submarine is understood to have sailed within viable range for launching torpedoes or missiles at the carrier.


What decade do you think this is? You're not fighting rice farmers for your penny-shining masters anymore. You're up against the Sunburn missile and skilled submariners. A carrier battle group is of zero value any longer.

If there is a shooting war in the Middle East, you will lose. Each of those ships will be sunk within thirty minutes. And then we'll not only be out an army, but half the Pacific Fleet will be at the bottom of the ocean.

Now I know that Admirals don't come too bright these days. You apparently believe your own Global War on Terror(R) marketing. So before you get bait-and-switched yet again, let me tell you that USG LLC and Israel are setting you up. They will sacrifice one or more of your expensive, obsolete carrier battle groups in order to prime the waterworks pump for a strike on Iran and/or Syria.

Not to mention that while all you war heroes were off playing tough guys, the United States has ceased to exist.

So either you're too stupid to realize who has attacked the nation, or the War on Globa' Terra business on the Pacific Fleet website indicates that you're in on it.

Which is worse?

...Completely fuckin' useless...
