An American submarine operating off the coast of Alaska was REPORTEDLY torpedoed and SUNK during a firefight with a Russian submarine, after the American sub allegedly intercepted the Russian sub in American waters.
The Russian submarine allegedly sustained heavy damage in the fight, with upwards of 14 crew killed, but it made it back to its base in Russia.
I have calls into the Pentagon and to my Intel Sources seeking to confirm (or deny) this information.
No word on US casualties.
Emergency meetings have been taking place at the White House this afternoon, with Vice President Pence being called back to the White House and having to cancel his scheduled trip to New Hampshire.
As Pence was being called back, word broke in Russian media that Russian President Vladimir Putin cancelled a public event he had long scheduled, and diverted immediately for a meeting with his Defense Minister.
At that meeting, both Putin and the Defense Minister SUMMONED the General Secretary of the Russian Armed Forces to the meeting.
While that was taking place, the European Union headquarters in Brussels Belgium called an Emergency meeting of the EU National Security Council and, separately, the British Government called a COBRA meeting for its government.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
UPDATE 5:45 PM EDT --
Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the country’s defense chief to travel to a northern naval base to conduct a probe after a fire on a deep-sea research submersible killed 14 crew members.
(Hal Turner Remark: A fire huh? Hmmmmm. Caused by what? A firefight with a US Submarine, perhaps?)
Putin on July 2 called the incident a “terrific loss” and told Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to “personally hear reports” and direct the Investigative Committee to “definitely establish the causes behind this tragedy."
Putin’s meeting with Shoigu came after the Defense Ministry said earlier in the day that 14 sailors were killed when a fire broke out on July 1 aboard a submersible carrying out research work in Russian territorial waters.
(Hal Turner Remark: "In Russian territorial waters???" Why the need to say THAT? Something's fishy already with the public statements from Russia. And US/EU/UK governments do not have "emergency meetings" over a "fire" inside a Russian submarine. Nope. I don't buy this one bit. This sounds like a cover story to me. Still digging via my intel contacts.)

UPDATE 7:36 PM EDT --
I will give this Intel to you exactly how I just got it. Make of it what you will:
"An unnatural mobilization at US and Western military bases in the Persian Gulf and in the Gulf states"
UPDATE 7:45 PM EDT --
Gold Bullion spiked up by $40 per ounce in the final hours of trading today. The money people are running to Gold for safety.
UPDATE 1:55 AM EDT (WEDNESDAY)--
It is worth noting that a few U.S. wars have started because of a sunken ship.
1. The sinking of the Battleship Maine in Cuba for the Spanish-American war.
2. Sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-Boat and we go into World War I.
3. The sinking of a whole bunch of ships at a Naval Base named Pearl Harbor and World War II starts.
4. A naval battle in the South China Sea Gulf of Tonkin starts the Viet-Nam war.
5. I guess we could also include the American Revolution due to the Boston Tea Party where Colonial Masons robbed and burned British Ships -AND-
The Civil War starts with an attack on Fort Sumter which is located in Charleston Harbor was essentially a naval battle
I guess the War of 1812 deserves an honorable mention because the Star Spangled Banner was written during a naval bombardment of Fort McHenry.
While Russian Television (RT) has put out a story claiming the research submarine suffered a fire causing the deaths of 14 crew, the article (HERE) again claims the sub was "in Russian Territorial waters."
Strangely, FOX NEWS has also published a weird story on what the United States specific actions would be in case of a Russian NUCLEAR ATTACK upon America (HERE). The timing of this particular story is . . . interesting . . . to say the least.
UPDATE 12:00 NOON WEDNESDAY --
Kremlin says details of a fire that killed 14 crew on a deep-water submersible will not be made public because they include classified information
