Russian submarine undetected while cruising along the U.S coasts

    In June-July the Akula-class Russian showed the U.S. its vulnerability. Unless the military did it on purpose to push the Congress for more military budget! However Vladimir Yevseyev, at the head of the center ofr social and political studies said : "This is a good lesson for the U.S, demonstrating that it should not pursue its foreign policy interests all over the rest of the world using force. Other states also have some military potential. If the US pursues its national interest by means of force a boomerang effect will take place. The US should realize that it is also vulnerable because the anti-missile system is not efficient when it comes to cruised missiles, that can fly at low altitudes. Nuclear submarines carry cruise missiles that can not be detected using conventional means designed for repelling ballistic missiles attacks. Cruise missiles create a breach in anti-missile defense. They show that an ideal anti-missile system does not exist. This destroys the image of the US' invicibility, which backs its policy of all permissiveness on the global arena."
    Any thoughts?

      Hello Max.  Nice to see you.

      The Akula-class Russian submarine is an anti-sub sub that always lurks near ports having heavy submarine traffic. Such encounters have been recorded for years. In the summer of 2010, the number of “contacts” in the North Atlantic off the coast of Europe reached the highest level since 1987. {1} It is not new and certainly not surprising. I would expect that US subs use a similar strategy.
