Russian President Vladimir Putin is deploying nuclear-armed submarines "dangerously close" to the United States and European allies, a Senate Democrat said following a trip to the Arctic Circle.

"No one is suggesting that Putin is contemplating a nuclear launch against a NATO country, but it's not clear how tethered to reality Putin is," Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy told reporters Monday. "And it should make us nervous that many of his submarines are starting to get dangerously close to the U.S. and our allies."

Murphy made the comments while arguing that the Navy needs to pursue an aggressive plan to replace aging American submarines, which can thwart rival countries from gathering intelligence andmaintain the security of global shipping lanes.

In recent years, Putin's navy has pursued a more aggressive strategy even than during the Cold War, according to Murphy. "Russian submarines have been pushing out to the very precipice of NATO-ally waters," he said. "We have seen Russian boats coming closer to the U.S. and to our European partner ports than ever before, in immensely provocative ways — in ways that were rare even during the days of the Cold War."

This article is such "Gaslighting" of the American Public. They are playing the public and congress for funding with articles such as these.

 

The Average American stuck on a steady  diet of the Kardashians, ESPN....Home and Garden Channel or whatever pabulum they are want to feed us has no idea how much or often we spy on everyone out here...even close up and at times right into their harbors and rivers with our submarine fleet.

We have been doing this for over 40 years now. And I mean here spying on our friends as well as our enemies.

 

The Russians are doing the same within their capabilities.

 

Recommend reading these two books for a start.

 

"Blind Mans Bluff"...by Sherry Sontag and Christopher Drew

 

Also

 

"Submarine" by Tom Clancy.

 

Tom Clancy's book has certain misinformation's in it due to the classified nature of what he is writing or covering but it is definitely interesting ..including the photos of a 688 class boat.

 

Submarines can gather certain information's that satellites cannot which is why they are still used in the information gathering capacity as well as for other traits/abilities.
