US Navy: East Coast of America is no longer a safe haven due to Russians


The US military acknowledged that the territorial isolation of the United States is no longer a strategic advantage and a guarantee of the country's security.


According to The Drive, speaking at a meeting of the US Naval Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Vice Admiral Andrew Woody Lewis said the east coast of the country was no longer a “safe haven” for warships in the US Navy.

According to him, the reason for this is the increased activity of Russian submarines:

But these submarines today are capable of much - they can be in the sea for more time and have more deadly weapons on board.

He also noted that outside the base of Norfolk, which is the main naval base of the Atlantic fleet of the US Navy, American ships immediately fall into an insecure zone and crossing them across the Atlantic becomes a risky event.

I would not want to disappoint the American vice admiral, but after the appearance of the “apocalypse torpedo” - the Poseidon unmanned aerial vehicle designed to attack coastal objects, the safety of the US Navy in Norfolk also becomes a very conventional concept.

    Pay attention, recognizing and declaring the threat, the US military does not offer to negotiate with Russia, let alone sign something! They simply do not believe that Russia is capable of using these weapons. And all these conversations in order to give them more money!

    That's right, leave all graduates to the institute for the second year, for their safety!
    And the Chinese submarines, apparently, are the most invisible ... they don’t talk about them, so that applicants do not run away?

    Come on. Empty chatter, so as not to relax. What, before ours did not boast about the penetration of our super-submarines, super-airplanes, super-mercy off the coast of Amers? Show off!

    Cartoons about Poseidon did not show? Showed!

    Aircraft / ships all sides heroically drove away (just flying somewhere close)? They drove away!

    So there will be many more such announcements from all sides oh-oh-a-lot .... and cartoons.
