That can happen any time, even with a nuke boat. All they have to do is find an area that has a lot of magnetic signatures around, and lay in wait like the Chinese boat did. It's hardly a "rubber submarine". Diesel boats are actually as advanced as nuke boats, and much quieter at the same time. You used to have to snorkel every couple of days if you stretched it, now they can go much longer with an AIP engine.

Powerful post and I agree with your last line or there abouts.
Who would dare attack us?
Well when you are the world tyrant you better have a rear view mirror in my opinion.
Things are much more turbulent then during WW2 right now but I can't see the arrogance of parking 5 Carriers in one place as just the normal thing to do.
This is contrived and I believe it will tie into the financial and physical collapse of the US.
