Is this a PLAN submarine thread ? Sub don't work in caves, it best served under water.

On the subject of the Tora Bora fiasco, whoever decided that some raggedy Northern Alliance tribesmen were a cheaper way to do the job of setting up a decent blocking position and cutting of ol' Osama's escape route than the Rangers was very very dumb. That was arguably our last best chance to get him as far is publically known for sure.
Battles are won by slaughter and maneuver. The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver, the less he demands in slaughter.

Thank you for posting this video, I find it very informative. I think there are still many people here who can understand Chinese.in the future, can you provide some real summary rather than just posting these videos? A lot of people here don't understand mandarin.
And I especially don't like the idea of placing my SLBM assets in a cave; if I was a smart enemy, I would target the entrances to the cave with my weapons, and trap anyone and anything inside the cave.
Putting big noise maker inside chinese sub during peacetime.
During war time, take them out.
Just as USN figured it has collected all noise signature of chinese sub during peacetime, but my friend, those are false reading.
Or we could be like America and send them out to hide under the sea.
And in the great game of nuclear chicken, being forewarned about a war is a luxury. Those subs would be dead after their shadows fire their torpedoes at a easy to find target before they would have a chance to return to port. And to remove something large from a submarine would require a few weeks worth of dry dock. Not worth it.
