Fourteen Russian Navy seamen lost their lives aboard a Russian submarine last week, but the hush hush tone from both Washington, DC and the Kremlin have spared theories ranging from the sub was sent to “kill the internet” to it had engaged a US sub off the coast of Alaska. Reports also indicate that the submarine may have been carrying a cobalt thermo-nuclear bomb. Now, strange comments that were uttered at a funeral for the sailors spark even more interest in what actually took place.
On Monday, eulogies that were given during the funeral for the sailors there were some strange comments made.
According to Business Insider:
A top Russian naval officer said that the 14 Russian sailors who died in a fire aboard a secretive Russian submarine last week sacrificed themselves to prevent a “catastrophe” on a planetary scale, Bloomberg reported Monday, citing Russian media reports.
“With their lives,” the unnamed Russian officer said at a funeral in St. Petersburg, “they saved the lives of their colleagues, saved the vessel and prevented a planetary catastrophe.” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who said he was unaware of the officer’s comments, denied that there was any risk of a broader threat.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said last week that the submarine’s nuclear reactor survived the fire because the crew took “necessary measures” to protect it, the Independent reported.
So, I pointed out the use of the phrase “planetary catastrophe” on Monday in my report which mentioned these comments.
However, we’ve been told that there was nothing to worry about and that even the fact that Vice President Mike Pence canceled his event in New Hampshire that day and that President Donald Trump didn’t even appear for one press conference or make a statement on the day of the event yet, the message was basically nothing was an “emergency” seems to suggest it was an emergency.
We’re not told exactly what the “planetary catastrophe” was, which would be helpful here.
However, there are two possibilities.
The first is that the submarine was actually carrying a cobalt thermo-nuclear bomb.
The second, and possibly the most probable, is that the submarine’s nuclear reactor was somehow compromised.
However, in that scenario, the question must be asked, how was it compromised? Did it, in fact, engage a US sub off the coast of Alaska or was there something else that may have created some sort of leak.
If that is the case, did it affect the waters in which it was maneuvering?
I’m guessing that we will know more as the days unfold.
