Interesting background. With the stint as Head of F-22P project in China and the Masters from Beijing it seems he has a strong connection with Chinese military and industry. Be interesting to find out the reason for the Chevalier award from France.

He should have ordered the IN sub blown out of water or at the very least surface and surrunder.

For the simple fact that it was let go puts a question mark on his decision making.
Indians blew our Atlantic just for flying close to the border.

I think hindsight is great thing. If one is not in possession of all the facts and input it really is hard to stand in judgment of someone who had to make on the spit, split second decisions within the rules that have been handed down to him by the civil leadership. In fact we do not even know if permission for a kill was asked for and denied.

I am glad you have the confidence to stand in judgment. I never could....
