"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

My sister-in-law's brother flew P-3s and said you won't find one of our subs if it doesn't want you to.  Maybe it was Chinese or Iranian and they just claim it was American.

Coulda' been British, Swedish or Norwegian too.  No way they could positively ID an American sub, and of course the US will neither confirm or deny.

I highly doubt they chased one of our subs anywhere. This is the Russians making claims nobody will ever refute, nor will they ever prove.

Could be Canadian, too. Canada, Russia and Denmark are currently in a fair old fight about ownership of the North Pole.
