    China, Russia, and Iran pose regional and strategic submarine threats and are building up undersea warfare capabilities as the Navy is cutting its submarine force by 30 percent, the admiral in charge of Pentagon submarine programs told Congress on Thursday.

    Rear Adm. Richard Breckenridge, director of Navy undersea warfare programs, said the decline of U.S. submarines is placing a key U.S. military advantage at risk.

    "Our adversaries are not standing still, and so even though we have an advantage and we have a lead, we can't sit on our lead," Breckenridge told a hearing of the House Armed Services seapower subcommittee.

    Our current corrupt and dishonest administration is determined to make the United States a secondary power, and are succeeding at their mission quite effectively. They think the world will join hands and sing "Kumbaya" if the U.S. will "stop being the aggressor and lay down our arms" when the reality is, when we lay down our arms -- as this pretentious fool occupying the White House is doing as we speak -- we will be overrun by the barbarian hordes.
