At least 250 +/- 50 to the nearest point on the coast to float it.

Would have been interesting to see what the plan was for getting it there.

As a matter of fact, I would not have been too surprise if they would have.
Subs have showed up in a lot more questionable places then in the Colombian jungle :rolleyes:

Well look at it from the bright side. They only sold the papers this time. Not like to some other very questionable qountries for the past 50 years..

I know this is a very old thread, but its relevant to my question.
I saw a show the other day that followed two US DEA agents through a couple of operations in Columbia. Toward the end of the show they showed some footage of some subs that they have captured. The narator mentioned that these subs had a range of 3000 miles and could easily make it to coastal USA, carrying tons of drugs. He then went on to suggest that Al Quaida was beginning to integrate their oprerations into the Columbian cartels, for purposes of generating revenue, furthering their cause, etc. Imagine what a submarine or 10 full of explosives or chemical weapons could do. Is it realistic that the terrorist and the cartels could successfully work together in a symbiotic relationship or would the cartels sort of protect their money maker (us) from getting exploded.
Here's a link to the Wikipedia article on the subs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narco_submarine

Wikipedia is a starting point son. Anyone can post something there. Don't believe everything you read unless I write it

We need SEALs on underwater OPs, in underwater hide sites, manned 24/7, with limpet mines, ready to sink these subs. Fuck drug runners.
