A Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine cruised within 200 miles of the East Coast recently in the latest sign Russia is continuing to flex its naval and aerial power against the United States, defense officials said.

The submarine was identified by its NATO designation as a Russian Seirra-2 class submarine believed to be based with Russia’s Northern Fleet. It was the first time that class of Russian submarine had been detected near a U.S. coast, said officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of anti-submarine warfare efforts.

One defense official said the submarine was believed to have been conducting anti-submarine warfare efforts against U.S. ballistic and cruise missile submarines based at Kings Bay, Georgia.

If the report was 200 miles, it means they were 2 miles

If the report says 200 miles, you better believe they were 2 miles off the US shore. There is no telling how many times Russia has bird dogged the US.

Maybe we need to worry about this Country a little more and leave the rest of the World alone.

US has 900 military bases in

US has 900 military bases in 130 countries.

We get closer than that with our ships and subs, to every other country all the time.

Why can WE do and THEY can't do it?

200 Miles?

That is very close and very provocative imo.

The Russian leadership should be confronted about this.

I have heard the Chinese and Russians are building lots of subs along with India.
