ANSWERS to 25 NOV 14 Submarine Q.O.T.W.
2. Why was Mike Robinson certain those COs were assigned to boomer subs? In Robinson's own words: "I was told that I would be met by a young lieutenant in the Protocol Department, who would act as my translator and cultural guide. She was magnificently beautiful, about 25, flawlessly uniformed in a dark blue skirt and tunic, and she spoke perfect English with a slight Russian accent." ANS: Translation error, at best; believing the translator without verifying.
3. What glaring clue, if any, might lead a qualified submariner to question Mr. Robinson's claim as to "boomer submarines"? ANS: The caption (see below) accompanying the photo of the submarine in his article (7th paragraph) reads, "The elite boomer submarines were based in Murmansk". The submarine shown, however. is not a "boomer", by any definition.
4. Might a glaring error concerning strategic missile subs published by Mr. Robinson lend doubt to the care he takes in his "thoughtful" (liberal) opinions about other strategic topics, such as his: Climate deniers hard to digest? ANSWER: What do you think?!
