That's a fair retort, Andrew - I for one wouldn't exactly expect the USN
*not* to think about this. But the "old news" is the USN thinking about

Has that changed from the WW2 stance of "let's hope like hell that we don't
tackle really quiet subs in waters where we have a frigging tough time
locating stuff?" Maybe it's just me, but I'm guessing it hasn't.

submersed units that also don't know where the f**k the enemy is. Replying
