A Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks and its travel in strategic U.S. waters was only confirmed after it left the region, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

this announcement could mean so many things,
- they are trying to justify amping up military spending?
- they knew it was there the whole time and were testing the tracking capabilities as well as the moving patterns and speed etc
- they knew it was there but want Russians to believe they didn't know
- they really didnt know
- there was no russian sub at all and they are building a boogie man for a false flag
my initial reaction is that if it was really undetected they wouldnt tell the public about it.

Russia is talking again about using Cuba as a naval base...
To be honest who cares... So long as they did not breech US territorial waters they are free to exercise freedom of navigation. We do the same things directed towards them...
While both sides have impressive technology, its just that - technology. Its made by humans who are not perfect, operated by humans who are not perfect, maintained by humans who are not perfect.
Technology only gets us so far. The rest is up to the human x factor.
