"Missile" Fired Off California Coast On Same Day That Chinese Sub Surprised US Carrier Group

The missile fired off of the California coast this week appeared on the same day that a Chinese sub surprised US officials when it appeared suddenly in a US carrier group back in 2007.

Back in 2007 a Chinese submarine surprised American military chiefs when it popped up close to the massive U.S.S. Kitty Hawk.
HotAir reported back in 2007:

American military chiefs have been left dumbstruck by an undetected Chinese submarine popping up at the heart of a recent Pacific exercise and close to the vast U.S.S. Kitty Hawk – a 1,000ft supercarrier with 4,500 personnel on board.

By the time it surfaced the 160ft Song Class diesel-electric attack submarine is understood to have sailed within viable range for launching torpedoes or missiles at the carrier.

According to senior Nato officials the incident caused consternation in the U.S. Navy.
The Americans had no idea China’s fast-growing submarine fleet had reached such a level of sophistication, or that it posed such a threat.

Now this week there was a mysterious “missile” in the sky over California?

Also, authorities have not yet disclosed what caused a cruise ship to lose its power. The event supposedly began at 6 AM roughly about 10-12 hours before the possible missile launch.
If nothing else, this is interesting.

    Missiles are not launched for no reason…..ever.

    Not for one minute do I believe any of the “official” explanations of this exhaust trail. Given TWA 800 in July 1996, my sense of things is that a coverup is going on.

    Never believe government officials. Never believe Democrats.

  • avery

    Their was someone on the net 30 min. after it was report that it was a plane.China is piss off at us for us destory our money so I wonder.

    which US Presidents sold /traded our secrets?

    are those in our government who sell or ‘trade’ US secrets —-TRAITORS?….

  • wolf t.

    Anyone recall the doomed flight of TWA flight 800 that exploded over Long Island Sound? There were reports of a missile launch at that time. They pooh-poohed the idea at the time. I still don’t accept the official explanation.

    And just for the record: I am no conspiracy theorist. Unless, of course, it involves ACORN and election losses by republicans.

    Could this have been a shoulder-fired SAM missile?

  • Rob Crawford

    It was a contrail.

  • StrangernFiction

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I’m just not ready to accept the word from on high that THIS is an airplane:


  • Redwine

    Wolf (5) – I don’t connect the downing of TWA 800 in 1996 to a Chinese missile, but rather to a similar shoulder-launched rocket by al-Qaeda that tried to down an Israeli commercial flight in 2002 in Mombasa, Kenya, which also included a simultaneous terrorist attack on an Israeli-owned resort in the same town.

  • Sasja

    That it is a contrail is evident. But from what? Airplane or missle? Perhaps it’s from space aliens who now live far below in the ocean. Actually saw a program about that years back that some idiots believed to be true.

  • Joanne

    If the missile was launched 35 miles off the coast, and it looks like it was in open water, according to the news report, then it would have had to have been launched from a watercraft of some sort, Navy or not.

  • Militant Conservative

    My thought is that CHINA is sending a warning shot due to QE2. We just screwed the chinese royaly by doing this. This was a direct warning to the WH. They posses the means and ability to strike us in our own backyard.
    Obama is going to start a war right here in America, another first for the first affirmative action president. Ain’t he special??!!
    powder is dry

  • arnonerik

    My guess is it was a warning shot across our bow letting us know our coastal cities are not safe. Who is capable of doing that and who would send us a warning like that and why? I’m guessing that our military knows the answers to those questions.

  • arnonerik

    Hey Militant Conservative, I was typing my post when yours came through so I didn’t see it. I obviously concur.

  • Mikey

    I live in L.A. and it was NOT an airplane. I live about 5 miles from LAX and see contrails ALL THE TIME. I have also seen missiles launched and the contrails that they make. To me, this looked like a missile contrail. Too big and wide to be a plane. Just saying. As for who? Anyone’s guess. Not feeling too comfortable right now, that’s for sure.

    It’s a contrail, not a missle. I’ve seen hundreds like it while growing up on the coast. The cruise ship in the sea of Cortez lost power due to a fire in engineering; no mystery there. If China wants to send a message they have more obvious and effective ways to send it, like messing with our debt to them. Let’s not get all Twilight Zone folks.

    Something smells fishy.

    Someone is lying.

    Interesting to say the least.

    MC #11, agreed.

    Obama’s weakness invites attack. I haven’t felt this under siege since Carter.

    Actually, it was Pelosi taking off on her broom. You know that woman does practice what she preaches on the environment.
