Subject: The Rise and Fall of JL-2

According to latest report from Chinese sources, the rumor says that one 094 sub was severely damaged while test launching JL-2 missile from under water. The missile failed to ignite and fell back onto the sub, damaged the hull and almost sank it. Unfortunately, the 094 crew did a bad job saving the boat and managed to steer it back to the port. This is the fourth time JL-2 underwater launch test failed.

Now we should expect any and all companies associated with submarine missile systems in the UK, France, Russia, the US, Oz, etc to get hammered with hack attacks.
Maybe attempted theft of maintenance materials as well?
S. Africa used to have 1-2 boomers, they would be a ripe, easily bribed target.
Once China can launched a submarine based missile, they'll feel even bolder, until then, hot air.
Oh, had lunch with someone from the Indian Chamber of Commerce, they estimate a land based, blitzkrieg attack in early 2012.
