300 U.S. Subs In The Sea Of Japan (!)
I know I shouldn't make fun of random commenters on random blogs, but this one cracked me up. Over at New Hounds (motto: "We watch FOX so you don't have to") they have a report about a FOX anchor interviewing former SecNav John Dalton. The segment was apparently about what kind of threat the North Korean sub fleet poses, and Dalton apparently, and correctly, said that it didn't pose much of a threat at all.
The first commenter to respond to the post had this to say about the U.S. sub fleet:
"And of course, the foxy ones said not one word about OUR fleet of trident submarines based in japan and armed with nuclear enough nukes to take out china and nk. i think i read, and i may be wrong, that the us has 300 subs over there constantly rotating and patroling the sea of japan. what a joke fox is."
Yes, "big johnny", you are, in fact, wrong -- we have no Tridents based in Japan, and we only have about 70 total submarines. You are kind of right, though, that the Tridents we have are armed with "nuclear enough nukes" to take out China and North Korea... and then some. North Korea should remember that if they decide they want to play with the big boys again...
