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.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

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.
