    How do the Russians sit in our backyard for a month?

    Red October redux? John Cornyn demands answers from Pentagon on Russian sub in Gulf of Mexico (UPDATED) | Texas on the Potomac | a Chron.com blog

    With them entering our airspace on a couple of different occasions and now this it appears Putin wants to test the waters a little bit.

    Why do we let them sit in our backyard for a month?

    Something tells me we've been in their backyard a time or two...

    I don't know how reputable the source is, but I've heard rumors that our milkshake brings all the countries to the yard.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    This plus flying bombers right in to our airspace near Alaska. They are testing us. The cold war is not over.

    This seems to be the crux of the matter: "“This is especially troubling given the drastic defense cuts sought by President Obama, which include reductions in funding for antisubmarine defense systems.”"

    Obama's defense cuts are by no means drastic, and I believe the defense department will be the ones to decide where the cuts come from. The only thing out of their hands is where and how we use our military, and that could and should be dramatically scaled back, and if we did that, there would be plenty of money to go around, even with real "drastic" cuts.

    The Louisiana Navy ain't worth a ****.

    I would imagine it would cost less to have more of our subs and naval vessels patrolling our borders rather than out at sea across the world.

    Yep, we are there too. Been going on a long time. It would be incredibly cool if we could see what is really going on with the attack subs under the ocean and track their current positions - probably a little scary too.

    I'd expect us to be in their backyard. I would think we would have better technology to not let something like this happen to us. Seems like kind of a slap in the face. Hopefully this will wake us up.

    Re: How do the Russians sit in our backyard for a month?

    It seems rather surprising that the Russian navy has improved so dramatically in technology, as their Cold War era subs were about as hard to find as a lawnmower in a bath tub.

    Maybe this is just a start of the promotions for the remake of Red Dawn coming out soon!
