Interesting theory, nice factual base for your thoughts. I do however think you are far off the mark. The United Kingdom prime minister is visiting China for trade agreements. I don't think the representative for America's strongest ally would be visiting China if there were a state of de-facto war in place.
SUBROC could be launched from a 21 inch submarine torpedo tube. After launch, the solid fuel rocket motor fires and SUBROC rises to the surface. The launch angle then changes and SUBROC flies to its destination following a predetermined ballistic trajectory. At a predetermined time in the trajectory, the reentry vehicle (containing the warhead) separates from the solid fuel motor. The warhead, a W55 5 kiloton nuclear depth bomb, drops into the water, sinking rapidly before exploding in proximity to its target. A direct hit was not necessary.

You mention an EMP attack on the Carnival Splendor to disable her. Do you know what an EMP attack would have done to all electronics on the ship if this was the case?
It has been mentioned in some news articles, that as they were approaching San Diego under tow, passengers were starting to get cell phone comms again. |This indicates that their cellphones were not fried hence no EMP attack took place).

what the USA leadership today is trying to create is a China-American schism, 'we' are the ones
initiating the financial war not them... China is just pointing out the duplicity of the USA...
the USA is trying to rationalize to the G-20 that the inadvertant debasing of the USD
is the only way to help the world economy recover....
