The uninvited guest: Chinese sub pops up in middle of U.S. Navy exercise, leaving military chiefs red-faced

When the U.S. Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, it takes the security of its aircraft carriers very seriously indeed.
At least a dozen warships provide a physical guard while the technical wizardry of the world\'s only military superpower offers an invisible shield to detect and deter any intruders.
That is the theory. Or, rather, was the theory.

the chinese SURELY knew of the presence of an American battle FLEET when they surfaced. IMHO, it was the Chinese saying "you can't see us".
What good is an aircraft carrier with massive escort if it can easily be sunk?

yeah man, that would of been so funny to see. I think we were just given a message. They were showing us how they can come right up on top of us without our knowledge.
None the less don't look good for the US.
