Argentina's navy searches for missing submarine with 44 crew on board
Argentina?s navy has launched a huge search-and-rescue operation for a military submarine with 44 crew members that has been missing off the coast of Patagonia for more than two days. The last radio contact with the San Juan submarine was on Wednesday, when it was 430km off the coast of the southern province of Chubut, in the area of San Jorge bay, a naval spokesman said on Friday.
Hope for missing Argentine submarine as possible calls detected
A Royal Navy patrol ship has begun scouring the the South Atlantic for a missing Argentine submarine after failed satellite calls thought to be from the vessel raised hopes the crew were still alive. Argentine officials said naval bases had detected seven incomplete satellite calls over the weekend attributed to the sub and were now trying to use them to pinpoint its location. The communication attempts "indicate that the crew is trying to re-establish contact, so we are working to locate the source of the emissions," the Argentine Navy said on its Twitter account, adding that the calls lasted between four and 36 seconds. HMS Protector joined an international team of ships and aircraft braving heavy seas and high winds to search for the German-built ARA San Juan which has been lost since last week. The vessel and its 44 crew last made contact on Wednesday when she was 267 miles off the coast in the Gulf of San Jorge.

Claudio Rodriguez, whose brother Hernan is aboard the submarine, told a local television channel: "They've got to be afloat. Thank God. That gives us hope, because we knew that if they were down below, they would be screwed.? HMS Protector, the Royal Navy?s 5,000 ton ice patrol and survey ship, was diverted from a routine mission in the area and can bring its high definition sonar to bear on the search. The hunt also includes help from Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and the United States. America on Sunday said it was sending a second P-8 Poseidon submarine hunting navy patrol plane to join the search. The US Navy has also dispatched two submarine rescue chambers that can dock onto stricken boats and ferry crew to the surface from hundreds of feet underwater.

Among those on board is Argentina's first female submarine officer, 35-year-old weapons officer Eliana Krawczyk. Rescuers are focusing on an ocean patch about 190 miles in diameter located about 270 miles from the coast of the southern province of Chubut.
How North Korean Weapons Could Start a War (in the Middle East)
On November 4, a ballistic missile exploded above King Khalid Airport near Riyadh after being intercepted by Saudi Patriot missiles. The attack, launched by Houthi rebels in Yemen, led the Saudi government to blame Iran for supporting the rebels, escalating tensions across the Middle East. Curiously, however, many of Yemen?s ballistic missiles came from North Korea?a design that North Korea, in turn, had acquired from Egypt.
