Thoughts on the Submarine Rescue

1)
This sort of thing is dramatic (high stakes, not much time) and inspiring (highly-skilled individuals and diverse government agencies cooperating to meet the challenge). It's one of the better examples of what humans can accomplish when we work together.

2)
If they do survive, it will be because the sailors on the Kursk did not.

If it were not for the Kursk disaster/tragedy, Putin would not have been so quick to ask for foreign help, especially given the sensitive nature of the underwater detection equipment involved.
