Russian subs on the prowl

According to reports from Great Britain Russian subs have been attempting to follow British Trident
carrying subs. Britain's navy reports that Russian subs have increased activity to levels during the
Cold War.

It is almost certain that the Russian subs are also following US and other NATO members subs and surface ships.

Russia is on a ship and sub building and missile testing course that makes one wonder how far and for
how long will this continue.

As we all know Russia has also returned to long range bomber flights across the frozen north and into
the Pacific flying near US Navy ships. And with the Russian fleet visiting South America and off the coast of the US, questions arise. Will Putin continue on this course? Will he run for president again?
