Welcome To My Secret Underground Lair

A satellite inadvertently captured a Chinese submarine entering an underground base in the South China Sea.

Military watchers across the internet were provided with a rare sight after photos circulated this week that appear to show a Chinese submarine using an underground base on Hainan Island on the South China Sea.

The satellite image from American imaging company Planet Labs, first posted on the social media accounts of Radio Free Asia, shows what appears to be a Type 093 nuclear-powered attack submarine entering a tunnel to an underground berth on Yulin Naval Base.

Drew Thompson, a former United States Defense Department official now at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, says the shot of the submarine is a rare occurrence.

Let’s hope they dug the underground base too deeply, so the entire installation can be surrounded – and destroyed – by liquid hot magma.

    MelP – “Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done. Ah, would you remind me what I pay you people for, honestly?”

    Cathy – Or at least kill off the Wuhan Virus.
