Media: Spanish boat tried to prevent the American submarine from approaching in Gibraltar


“The boat twice got in the way of the American submarine, preventing her from approaching the pier. In this regard, the Royal ship fleet Great Britain was forced to open warning shots from the rocket launcher towards the Spaniards and send a patrol ship to help the submarine. ”
writes a newspaper.

Another publication, “The Sun,” noted that “the incident outraged Gibraltar officials.”

An unnamed source told the British tabloid: “NATO ally should not treat the US Navy with such disrespect. The Spaniards are playing a very dangerous game. ”

Publications reported that the incident occurred in April, but it became known only now.

RIA "News"Recalls that" Gibraltar is the overseas territory of Great Britain disputed by Spain in the south of the Iberian Peninsula by the Straits of Gibraltar.

            Here is a striking example of how the United States treats its NATO allies. They are NOBODY for them, an empty place. Personally, I believe that the United States deliberately provoked an incident between the British and Spaniards. However, let them continue to do so. Anyone in Europe will get wiser.

            NATO, expanding in Eastern Europe, violates the agreement signed between Russia and the alliance in 1997. This opinion was expressed by well-known political scientist Hall Gardner.

            He noted that Curtis Scaparotti, the new NATO Commander-in-Chief in Europe, was in favor of permanently deploying the third battalion in Europe, although this initiative was not approved. Thus, according to Gardner, the North Atlantic Alliance is ready to violate the “founding act” signed by the United States and Russia as early as 1997, an agreement according to which commitments were made not to permanently deploy troops or nuclear weapons on the territory of the new members of NATO.

      In, I remembered on the occasion
      Actually recorded conversation between Spaniards and Americans on the frequency of "Extreme situations at sea" of the navigation channel 106 in the Strait of Finisterra (Galicia). 16 October 1997

      Spaniards: (background noise) ... says A-853, please turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision with us. You are moving directly at us, a distance of 25 nautical miles.

      Americans: (background noise) ... we advise you to turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision with us.

      Spaniards: The answer is no. Repeat, turn 15 degrees south into
      collision avoidance.

      Americans (other voice): The captain of the ship of the United States of America speaks to you. Turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision.

      Spaniards: We do not consider your proposal either possible or adequate; we advise you to turn south by 15 degrees so as not to crash into us.

      Americans (in elevated tones): CAPTAIN RICHARD JAMES HOWARD SAYS WITH YOU, COMMANDER OF THE USS LINCOLN AIRCRAFT, Navy OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SECOND LARGE OF THE SHIP. We are escorted by 2 cruisers, 6 destroyers, 4 submarines and numerous support ships. I DO NOT "ADVISE" YOU, I "ORDER" TO CHANGE YOUR COURSE FOR 15 DEGREES IN THE NORTH. OTHERWISE, WE WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR SHIP. PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REMOVE OUR COURSE !!!!

      Spaniards :: This is Juan Manuel Salas Alcantara speaking to you. We are 2 people. We are accompanied by our dog, dinner, 2 bottles of beer and a canary who is now asleep. We are supported by the radio station "Cadena Dial de La Coruna" and channel 106 "Extreme situations at sea". We are not going to turn anywhere, given that we are on land and are the A-853 lighthouse of the Finisterre strait on the Galician coast of Spain. We have not the slightest idea what place we occupy in size among the Spanish lighthouses. You can take whatever fucking steps you think are necessary and do whatever you want to ensure the safety of your fucking ship, which will crash to smithereens on the rocks. Therefore, once again we strongly recommend that you
      do the most meaningful thing: change your course to 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.

      Americans: Ok accepted, thanks

        There was no NATO in 1713. It was created a little later on 4.04.1949/XNUMX/XNUMX. The Gibraltar got into NATO at the request of Great Britain. And how he got to the Anglo-Saxons, see the link and the history of the war for the "Spanish Succession".

      What is the connection between joining NATO and the "kickback" of Gibraltar? The Spaniards lost Gibraltar in 1704, losing the war to England. And NATO was created in 1949. winked
      Moreover, the disputed territory is not Gibraltar itself, but the isthmus between it and mainland Spain.

        And this: - By joining NATO, Spain has lost even a purely theoretical chance of returning its land, for conflicts within the bloc are categorically not welcomed, and the Anglo-Saxons will definitely support the states. Being a non-NATO member of Spain, it would be easier to raise the issue of Gibraltar's return to the UN, although the possibility of his returning is minuscule, even if a positive decision, The West has been spitting on the decisions of the UN Security Council for a long time.

      In vain you are like this:
      2012-02-25 Spain has won all the courts in the USA against the American company Odyssey Marine Exploration, which is engaged in deep-sea searches, and now it will receive its treasures from the sunken Spanish ship.

      Antique gold and silver coins, which experts estimated at $ 500 million, have already gone on two military planes from Florida to Spain.

      Several tons of valuable coins were raised in 2007 from the Spanish frigate Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes, which sank in 1804 in the Strait of Gibraltar and since then, a fierce lawsuit has been going on between Spain and the American Odyssey companies.

      Only five years later, the court ruled that no matter who found the treasure, the property should be returned to the owner. And, although coins were minted in Peru, at that time Peru was a colony of Spain.

      The court also dismissed Odyssey’s lawsuit against the Spanish government for compensation of all costs.

      This treasure was the most valuable of all treasures found under water.

    We have been repeatedly pointed out that there is no such thing as a "sphere of influence", that it is an anachronism, that it is inherent in the 19th century. Excuse me, but to what century does the concept of "overseas territory" refer? And Spain and Argentina quite legitimately and justifiably demand the return of these quasi-colonies, held by cheating referendums and bribery of local elites.

    The USA has no allies, there are only countries occupied by the USA and not everyone likes the US occupation.

    The Spanish boat tried to prevent the American submarine from mooring in Gibraltar
    The Spanish Guard just went over a bit. Calvados was probably rocky. In the morning they didn’t remember which boat, which Gibraltar ... Nobody would have known anything if not for the vindictive sons of Misty Albion. smile

      Yes, everything is fine. The guys were fully adequate. The mustache belligerently bristled, in the right - the rapier, in the left - the dag)))

        Do you think it was an attempt to quietly take the American nuclear submarine aboard? winked

        The rapier is at the guard? Don't tell my slippers! In Spanish, ropera means "worn with civil suit (la ropa) ", and to uniform (even if the civil guard) relies espad aka epee!

          Yes exactly. In addition, a dag with rapier was not usually used.

        One of the legends inextricably links the appearance of Calvados with the death off the coast of Normandy of one of the ships of the "Invincible Armada" - the Spanish galleon "San Salvador". According to this legend, it was the Spanish sailors from the sunken galleon who thought of distilling cider.

      Kalvados is actually something to sing in Normandy. And sangria will not get so much nutrition. Probably they got Russian vodka for exploits and pulled ... laughing

    “The Sun” noted that “the incident has outraged Gibraltar officials.”
    An unnamed source told the British tabloid: “It is not appropriate for a NATO ally to treat the US Navy with such disrespect. The Spaniards are playing a very dangerous game. ”

    Don't confuse horseradish with a finger !!! The official faces of Gibraltar and the Spaniards are two completely different nationalities. And in general, has Spanish pride really awakened? Perhaps the "civil guard" on the way of the nuclear submarine is stronger than the march of the elderly servants of the amerskih air bases in the non-hamlet.

    There you have the unity in NATE, and the silly little psheks, tribals and banderlogs dream that Oyropa will go for them with machine guns. Yeah, right now, they’re already running, they are tripping over.

    That the Spaniards all the same probably remembered “But Pasaran” .. (Spanish. ¡No pasarán! - “They will not pass”) is a political slogan expressing a firm intention to defend their position.
    In the Russian language, this slogan came from Spanish. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), when the Franco troops approached Madrid, it was used by Dolores Ibarruri, making these words one of the symbols of the anti-fascist movement.
    Do not forget......

    “The boat twice got in the way of the American submarine, preventing her from approaching the pier. In this regard, the ship of the Royal Navy of Great Britain was forced to open warning fire from the rocket launcher in the direction of the Spaniards and send a patrol ship to help the submarine. ”

    The Spaniards got into a fuss, I can’t!
    Slow down the boat with a boat!
    Desperate guys.
    But the British are just as brave guys!
