I'm not worried at all. If they get closer, Biden will send Russia a strongly worded letter. Crisis resolved!

Trump wanted to improve relations with Russia, but the American left just wouldn't allow it with all their bullshit, "Russia interfered in our election and Trump is a Russian agent" bullshit.

And that's before we talk about the DNC's favorite dirty deeds folks, Glenn Simpson at FusionGPS arranging the "Russian lawyer at the Trump Tower meeting" set up. Curious how Glenn met with the woman before AND after that meeting, but the Russian agent is Trump. Curious how Hill-dawg paid for the Steele Piss Dossier accusing Trump of being a Russian agent, but yeah, Trump is the Russian agent, not Team Hill-dawg.

Calling it "rogue" is pretty irresponsible, especially for US Civil Defense News.
They fly 24/7 out of NAS Jax just down the road from my house and they are always looking for subs. This is nothing new and kind of a "blah" story for us locals.

As with ALL things, FLORIDA has this covered.

We probably have at least one of our subs nearby, we knew of the visit to cuba, good time to practice the training.

This story says nuclear sub, but not carrying nukes:

Frankie and Tiki are real-life versions of Matt Helm.

The interesting thing is, they are on our Atlantic Coast, not the much closer, Pacific coast. I feel certain they didn't transit through the Panama Canal, so they definitely took the long way around, proving up their blue water navy credentials.

They have boats that come down into the Atlantic.

Like is was stated above, outside the Continental Shelf, there are things lurking more often than you suspect. West coast as well, and near Hawaii.

Yup, a big nothingburger. We have deadly things lurking under the water all over the globe. Nothing newsworthy here.
