Trump tells Duterte of two U.S. nuclear subs in Korean waters: NYT

Source: Reuters



Wed May 24, 2017 | 8:32am EDT

U.S. President Donald Trump told his Philippine counterpart that Washington has sent two nuclear submarines to waters off the Korean peninsula, the New York Times said, comments likely to raise questions about his handling of sensitive information.

Trump has said "a major, major conflict" with North Korea is possible because of its nuclear and missile programs and that all options are on the table but that he wants to resolve the crisis diplomatically.

North Korea has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the program is necessary to counter U.S. aggression.

Trump told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Washington had "a lot of firepower over there", according to the New York Times, which quoted a transcript of an April 29 call between the two. "We have two submarines the best in the world. We have two nuclear submarines, not that we want to use them at all," the newspaper quoted Trump as telling Duterte, based on the transcript.

3. why would this ameriKKKan fool

 

called a potus even say that type of information where it could be publicly disseminated? He might be trying to intimidate, yet I think his stupid administration people are really afraid because the idiot-maniac-fool in n. korea IS NOT afraid of our threats much. He knows he can devastate the Korean peninsula at his will.. With millions of casualties and he damn sure ain't worried about his casualties.

4. I was under the impression that the whole idea of our sub program was to allow them to...

... gather intel in secret.


Kind of makes it difficult when someone blabs about where they are.

8. Are those subs there

to insert Special Forces?

I assume they are attack subs. Are we expecting to attack N. Korean shipping? Launch Tomahawks? (don't we have other platforms for that). Tangle with Chinese subs?

Why would he share this?

28. A gag for his big mouth, too!

He just can't stop himself. He has to run his mouth about what he knows, in spite of the fact that he has been told the information is top secret or sensitive. Seems like he has a need to brag to make him look like the one who knows. The BIG SHOT. They need to stop telling him anything of a sensitive nature or just make up stuff. Like the sun revolves around earth and gravity is a hoax.

Or maybe just use big words so Trump doesn't understand them.

37. There's a very good fucking reason it's called the silent service.

During WWII, submarine actions were notably off the table for journalists, hence "The silent service". Subs work best by stealth and secrecy. They hide!

Ask Richard O'Kane about his missions in the SS Tang, the most successful WWII US sub. Sadly, he's now dead, but his memoirs of his voyages in both the SS Wahoo under the notable Captain "Mushmouth" Morton, and as skipper of the SS Tang, are legendary in submarine history.

O'Kane's first rule was: We announce our presence first by our torpedoes. Surprise was his first and prominent strategy. Being undetected was primary to a successful patrol.

Drumpf is a fucking idiot!

Morton and O'Kane:

Will he blame Obama?

If I was in the Navy I would be outraged over him telling this to Duarte who is aligning himself with China and Russia. He knows Chump is an idiot and pulling away from America. i can see Duarte turning over Subic Bay to Russia or China now.

42. I could have told you that...

....there are 2 US carrier groups in the area, they usually travel with nuclear attack subs.

Also the USS Michigan just recently docked there.
