The "con" is, the Cold war ended prematurely, the Soviet Union was never destroyed. It evolved. Now it feels it can reveal more of itself.
Especially since the media nas convinced all the sheeple that America is the only true enemy. After all, the USSR *never* used propaganda to
manipulate opinion, so obviously they wouldn't have been resorting to it now...
The "new" missile system has been introduced, rumored, and tested for years. It was referred to as "Squall". The supercavitating torpedo. An
underwater cruise missle capable of travelling underwater at over Mach 1 (at sea level ) before popping up and heading to shore. The Airborne Laser,
SDI, and any air based interceptor system like the Patriot is totally ineffective. Just like Putin describes.
What do you think really happened to the Kursk? Why do you think the Russians were so extremely adamant about keeping *all* nations' rescue teams at
bay? But not for long, just long enough for everyone to be dead, and cleanup to be handled. Squall prototypes were rumored to be powered by a solid
rocket booster, and reach obscene speeds by travelling through a self-generated air bubble. If Squall's booster fired but the bubble did not form, or
failed the torpedo would hit a wall of water that would be as harder than steel. The compressed bubble supply and fuel would have detonated violently.
Enough to take such a nice, clean bite out of the forward bay of the Kursk.
They've had plenty of time to work out the bugs. Radar (travelling at lightspeed) cannot detect them underwater. Sonar can hear them coming, but only
at the speed sound propogates through water. If the device can exceed that, then it will be past a sonobuoy before it registers. When the device
breaches the surface, it's in DC, New York, LA, Seattle, in *seconds*. We couldn't respond to anything that fast.
