14 Russian Sailors died
IN July 14 Russian Sailors died in a fire in submarine.
these 14 Russian were an extraordinary crew of top elite captains
Losharik is among the most mysterious of the closely guarded fleet.
that it believed to be able to dive 20,000 feet under the sea.
Carried by a mother sub
What were they doing?!
Experts in the field want to know what happened when the fire started.
and in a few minutes I will tell you what they suspect they were doing.
And its not good for us.
This fascinates me – because we have performed for the crew of the USS Oklahoma City which is a los angles fast attack nuclear submarine. We have had dinner with the captain – and I have even gone underway. For that I would like to thank Pat McCoy who has connections with the Military and made that possible for us.
We got to climb up the tower as we were leaving the port Canaveral base where the captain is when they leave the port.
And the chief of the port suggested that I give the call to DIVE! And of course I wanted to sound powerful and authoritative when I gave the command for this Nuclear sub to dive. My voice cracked. It was embarrassing.
Subs are amazing.
Back in WW 2 And they were
6.5 Diesel powered subs!
Which doesn’t really work if you are trying not to be visible. Diesel requires oxygen to operate and its noisy which makes you visable to other subs. Why would they even try?
They have batteries – so when the subs are cruising on the surface the diesel motors charge the batteries and then they can dive and move around silently but they MUST SURFACE less than every three days. Visable on the surface and making noise.
But this is a problem and maybe that’s why
in WW2 the US lost 52 subs but the germans lost 784 subs.
So you can imagine when in 1954 the US got there first Nuclear sub it was a game changer.
Nuclear reactors on the sub don’t require oxygen to create unlimted power. Subs take salt water and used it to create Oxygen and drinking water so they can travel AROUND THE WORLD submerged and the only reason they need to surface would be? TO GET FRESH FOOD FOR THE CREW. Submariners are know for having THE BEST FOOD in the US NAVY. Great food is one of their only source of moral.
Lets go out and play Ball
And BTW guess what the name of the first Nuclear sub was – the Nautilus.
But Nuclear subs keep us all safe in ways most people don’t realize.
Nuclear missiles have been around for a long time – but thank god they never get used – because the US has 64 Nuclear submarines around the world and their location is unknown.
If KIM John Un – thinks that he has enough to wipe out the US – there are 64 Subs invisible around the world that will guarantee the last word. Its Called Mutually Assured Destruction – or MAD!
What were the Russians doing in the Losharik – when that fire kills that crew.
They were trying to tap into or ever some of the 550000 miles of underwater fiber optic cables that span the Atlantic and arctic sea lanes.
That cut could have had something to do with the outages that were experienced by tech giants like FB Google MS Apple and Verizon.
The internet is not in the cloud – its really in the ocean.
Our entire modern economy is dependent on these underwater cables. From internet to banking and how data centers communicate with each other all over the world.
China has made it clear that they are not going to take on the US super power militarily – but rather thru space, elections, cyberspace, and these data cables under the ocean are not protected they are in international waters.
And they are there for the Russian to go down and snip snip – and ad monitoring devices where they can intercept data from DC to Europe and possibly infiltrate systems thru these cables.
This could be Russia “trump” Card in that you have an incurring military presence or additional sanction – but then they can activate a “disruption” in the flow of data which could paralyze communications, finance, operations. This is real evil genius level tactics.
The Russians are now converting old missile submarines into these mischievous subs that can dive to great deaths and then they don’t fire torpedoes but rather they dispatch UNDERWATER DRONES – they will go out and cut these cables – install monitoring devices, etc.
This is a real power play that they Russians are doing – and we need to respond to it.
