Russia: Apparent U.S. sub driven from Barents Sea

MOSCOW — Russian state news agencies say the country's navy claims to have driven away a submarine believed to be American that entered Russia's northern waters.

The reports Saturday cited an unnamed representative of the navy's general staff as saying the incident occurred Thursday in the Barents Sea. The Barents Sea lies off northwest Russia and the Russian navy's Northern Fleet is based on its shores.

The reports said the fleet sent several vessels and an anti-submarine Il-38 aircraft to drive the submarine away.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

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.
