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

All things considered China is threating global war, in relation to trying to control these islands. Again the cause of war is a matter of recourses. This could very well explain why the United States has begun moving its naval recourses into the pacific The current real threat to world peace is China. In its effort to expand in a world where all recourses have been indented and defined as belonging to a valid sovereign nation.
In this case Japan.

You comment produced in my mind the image of John Boehner in current US military combat outfit, fighting on the front lines as a officer. Technically that his name should actually be pronounced "Bainer", to me is hilarious.
The United States of America has its problems we are not perfect. In truth the idea that we want to wipe out this planet and are looking for an excuse is insane.
Any thoughts?edit on 15-1-2013 by Kashai because: Modified content
But what do they do about the passive sonars that are just listening with no pinging?
And actually there is no place to almost hide underwater with the newer sats in orbit that can effectively see through the water.
That is one of the most uninformed illknowledgeable hopeful replies I have ever read.
So China did it once and had to tell the world so what.
U.S. Satellite capability...it takes time to find the Subs over a wide area and such tech. is used when it is known approx. where a sub might be in a smaller area.
However U.S. Satellite Magnotometers as well as Gravometrics are tied into networked Supercomputers and can pinpoint enemy sub locations in real time. This tech. has just recently been refined.
Still the most reliable way to track enemy subs is using the U.S. Sea Floor Acoustic Net.

Another Gulf of Tonkin incident waiting to occur? I will not rule out a false flag from the Chinese this time around, for a full scale military grab for the islands. U.S. will join Japan, where Russia will back China. A world war in the making.
China would not start a war any time soon. My belief is that they are trying to intimidate the other Pacific nations. The US would back Japan with the full might of our military, and China would be in ruins within weeks. Russia would never back China, and if they did they too would be annihilated, it would take most likely a few months for both nations to surrender, with almost no US casualties. Both countries combined could not dent the US Navy, they would be blockaded, bombed, and become withering hulks. They would be forced to repay huge reparations, and would be a huge coup for the US and the US economy.
