    Nice timing. Looks like even Russia wants "flexible" Obama to go.

    Ah! Putin! The X factor which was missing from Russian power projection for last 4 years has finally returned. This is great news. I hope the Americans respond with some subs near Vladivostok sub base and things get warm, really warm.

    Mild confrontations with the US is needed. But major confrontations with the West is not good for Russia. It has too many problems of its own and must concentrate on it's military and on bettering its position in C. Asia and E. Europe.

    Such incidents happen more often but are rarely reported.

    Sometimes Russian bombers are also found flying over western Atlantic airspace & then F16s try to trail them.

    ^^^ Before people demonize Russia. Let it be known that America has violated Russian (USSR) airspace and territorial waters more than Russia ever will, of the US.
    Just saying. :)

    I dont think we are sinking Russian Subs just because they get close to the USA now days.

    That picture is not Georgia or Florida, and why would a submarine need shelter.

    Here is an RT article.

    Russian nuclear sub given shelter near Florida during Sandy — RT

    Nothing about the story makes sense, but Obama said he can be flexible with Russia. If it is an indicator that the US president is a traitor, I would not be surprised.

    Why does a submarine needs a safe harbor during hurricane? I think a submarine is pretty safe sailing under water during a hurricane or this is an implied admission that that Russian submarine is fickle and cannot stand submerged when there's a hurricane above water... one of these scenarios must be correct.

    Neither article cited in this thread is a credible source.

    Then that explains it, although I think Russians or the Soviets before them routinely patrolled the areas near American territorial waters, that is, outside the 12NM boundary where there's absolute freedom of navigation (foreign including warships).
