A US nuclear submarine crosses into Strait of Hormuz


www.debka.com

Tehran reports that an Iranian naval patrol Thursday, May 27, detected a US nuclear submarine sailing through the strategic Strait of Hormuz, through which most of the oil produced by Persian Gulf states passes on its way to world markets. debkafile's Iranian sources report Tehran has placed its navy and army on high alert.
Western intelligence and naval sources confirm that a nuclear-armed American submarine has in fact entered the Persian Gulf.

Well-not sure what else to say. This is just yet another report of things that are going on in the middle east. With the US now approving and conducting overflights of Iran, to the additional aircraft carrier heading there right now, to Israel training with Greece again next week to simulate the journey to Iran to now this report, things continue to get hotter.

Im thinking the two may be related in some way. Kind of like "okay Russia and China, we've got things in play and something is gonna go down. You want it to be North Korea or Iran? Take your pick. One of them will get left alone but one of them wont. Which one you want it to be?"

Russia says attack NK!! China says no way not on our doorstep-attack Iran (we'll get the oil regardless)!! Hmmmm........

How exactly did they 'detect' the US nuclear submarine? I can't believe the US would be as stupid to surface Unless they wanted to be detected?? So what's the deal?

Yes i suspect the US surely wanted it to be detected. If the worlds most advanced military cannot hide a submarine from a patrol boat then we have problems... Its a message to Iran basically.

This is not new-they have already trained with Greece back in 2007. Israel flew 100 planes there to simulate the distance needed to fly to Iran (and to practice mid-air refueling) and they also got to practice attacking against Greece's S-300 defense system. Im sure Turkey isnt pleased though!!!

the straight is less the 50m deep in some areas. not hard to detect a missle sub in such shallow waters.

The Straight of Hormuz is actually really shallow. It works great for shipping, but subs cannot submerge there, or they will most likely crash. I think the actual depth is 70-100 meters, I highly doubt that is enough to effectively hide a sub, especially with the limited shipping lanes and what not.

Here is a really good site for you to check out more info -

There is a device called sonar that can detect objects at any depth.
This sub doesn't have to be surfaced to be found. It is a great technology
that has been around for eons. And if they are in international waters,
the US or whoever can go anywhere they please.

Well said endtimer.



I wish people would stop believing all the US propaganda regarding having the greatest this, the greatest that, it really makes the US people delusional in general.

As a result it is common place to hear Americans think that everyone apart from them live in the stone age.

Iran will not be a push over if this comes to blows and North Korea is a completely different challenge alltogether.

Iraq was a military exercise in comparison.

Sure, until it's you who is tortured, starved or watching your family butchered before you. Tell me then how much you "Love" war.

I guess it's fine when it's other people because it's not you right... not yet.

I would be surprised if it was a missile sub (boomer). There would be no need for a boomer to be so close, they are way to valuable to risk and probably too big to safely operate in the strait.

If there was a US sub in the strait I would guess it was a Los Angeles class attack sub. One of those babies could really cause problems for other forces in the area. Even so, the shallow water would make it much more vulnerable so it might be like others have said - just a quick show of force.
