I read the story and all the comments. Some of the people are wondering just how dangerous subs really are. I wonder if their opinion would change if they knew about that scary incident with the Chinese sub that was a re-upholstered Russian sub, coated with some sort of rubber to prevent sonar from working effectively.
I was most affected by the comment that knowing George Bush had spoken up for the Navy caused them to wonder whether Haliburton or the oil industry was somehow involved in all this.
I just hope the whales are taken care of. That is my priority.
