Those subs only have a 500 mile shooting range. Russia has the posiden torpedo which is nuclear powered -so infinite range- and carries autonomous nuclear drones that can be deployed sitting off a countries coastline.
The U.S. Ohio-class submarine can carry 24 Trident II submarine-launched ballistic missiles. They can have up to a 7,000 mile range, depending on payload.
Each can re-enter the atmosphere at Mach 24, can divide into numerous individual nuclear payloads ranging from 100-475 kiloton nuclear warheads.
A single Ohio-class sub, launching its full payload, could throw up to 192 nuclear warheads between 4 and 7K miles away.

At any time, we have 12 of these subs in the water, with 2 in overhaul. Each with 20 missiles. That's a total world-wide nuclear arsenal of up to 1,090 warheads from our subs alone.

Though I don't want to learn the hard way, I'll bet Russian technology works quite well; After all, aren't modern weapons more effective than ground troops? One missile or cyber attack can accomplish more than any huge number of boots on the ground.

Wre already had martial law and they didn't tell you... It was called Social Distancing for Covid-19
I don't recall all law being suspended, military troops policing the streets, and the US Army being in charge of all state and local governments.

Let me help you then...
Why Sheriffs won't enforce Corona Virus Restrictions
Constitutional Powers & Issues during a Quarantine
Basically, what I am saying is this... We didn't have a federal martial law but, each state government has the authority to declare martial law on their own. My state does every year during blizzards and floods, though they call it a "state of emergency" and they restrict rights or normally lawful actions because of it.

No they didn't declare a suspension of the US Constitution but, several states did implement all the same restrictions under their own local authority.

My thoughts...

Those Emergency actions are NOT Martial Law. The are actions authorized under State Constitution for the safety of the citizens.

You're right, no one would ever dare to attack the US.
Except a bunch of crazy goat banging jihadis... I don't think they have to beat us militarily, if they collapse our economy and the Socialists on the left seem bent on doing.

Under which state constitution?

From: Martial Law Explained
Can states declare martial law?
The Supreme Court has held that individual states have the power to declare martial law — and such a declaration is valid simply if it is authorized by the constitution or laws of the state. States have declared martial law far more frequently than the federal government. However, even under martial law, state officials are bound both by the U.S. Constitution and by valid federal laws. Additionally, individuals can challenge a state declaration of martial law by seeking injunctive relief in federal court — and if they are detained, they can petition for the writ of habeas corpus.

From:
The United States Constitution implicitly provides some emergency powers in the article about the executive power :
  • Congress may authorize the government to call forth the militia to execute the laws, suppress an insurrection or repel an invasion.
  • Congress may authorize the government to suspend consideration of writs of habeas corpus "when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."
  • Felony charges may be brought without presentment or grand jury indictment in cases arising "in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger."
  • A state government may engage in war without Congress's approval if "actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay."
Aside from these, many provisions of law exist in various jurisdictions, which take effect only upon an executive declaration of emergency; some 500 federal laws take effect upon a presidential declaration of emergency. The National Emergencies Act regulates this process at the federal level. It requires the President to specifically identify the provisions activated and to renew the declaration annually so as to prevent an arbitrarily broad or open-ended emergency. Presidents have occasionally taken action justified as necessary or prudent because of a state of emergency, only to have the action struck down in court as unconstitutional.[137]
A state governor or local mayor may declare a state of emergency within his or her jurisdiction. This is common at the state level in response to natural disasters. The Federal Emergency Management Agency maintains a system of assets, personnel and training to respond to such incidents. For example, on 10 December 2015, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency due to flooding and landslides caused by heavy rains.

So, yes... They are a form of martial law.

We are under attack right now! Southern border, economy, falling dollar, food facilities, farm land, drought, democrats, FBI outing conservatives, we will be going into lockdown again pretty soon along with riots. It's election season. Not to mention they have been chipping away at the 2nd for a long time now. These school shootings will help them with that. That's really for the uninformed American. Does anyone else see where this can go? Welfare state. With national police. Remind you of a period of time? History always repeats itself. 😆

That was sarcasm on my part. Just FYI.

Both China and Russia have heavy influence south of us. It wouldn't take much for them to stage a lot of troops and equipment there. The original Red Dawn comes to mind.

But before they invade, we will be at war with each other. That is being set up right now. We are getting close to that edge. One big step was when they deemed anyone who disagrees with the current admin a domestic terrorist. That's why they are establishing the ministry of truth. Some say they have put that on hold. Actually they haven't, they are just replacing the loudmouth, flamboyant director with someone who can work quietly behind the scenes and still get the job done.

You are absolutely correct. And it's funny how they always tell us what they are doing or are going to do. That is if you can read between the lines.
