1. The US Navy on Thursday sacked the commanding officer, executive officer and top enlisted sailor of a nuclear-powered submarine that crashed into an underwater mountain, saying the October 2 accident was preventable.

Commander Cameron Aljilani and two others were removed from their positions following an investigation into the crash in the disputed South China Sea.

The USS Connecticut was forced to sail on the surface for a week to reach Guam....


2. Never-before-seen viruses have been discovered hidden deep in the ocean.

Almost 200,000 of the infectious pathogens were found during a global marine life expedition, which took over 10 years to complete.....


3. The recent mysterious accident of the US nuclear submarine in the South China Sea is a real slap in the face for America's Indo-Pacific strategy and its claim of rights for its forces to "routinely conduct freedom of navigation assertions throughout the world". The US navy said its investigation showed that the submarine struck an uncharted "seamount" while patrolling below the surface. Perhaps the so-called "seamount" is the palace of Ao Qin, the Chinese legendary Dragon King of the South Sea.

Due to zero visibility, extremely cold temperatures, and crushing amounts of pressure, the Deep Unknown is out-of-bounds to all mortal intruders from the Earth's surface. As in the Chinese idiom 不自量力 (which literally means "overestimating one’s capabilities"), the US could find no nine-dash line but a nine-trillion-dash line in the Deep Unknown. The US could swagger around the world with its arbitrary laws and values, but its damaged submarine had to limp back to Guam after being taught a lesson by the Deep Unknown for intruding into forbidden territory. :)

As a parting shot, just hope that the damaged submarine did not bring back any of the "nearly 200,000 viruses" from the deep, otherwise humanity might perish at lightning speed in the next round of global pandemic as in one blow at a candle on "Happy Death Day".
