    Surprised theirs not been a small thread on the forum about this, Been going on for a few days, Apparently there is not much oxygen left if it sunk, Stormy Seas hampering the search effort.

    EXPERTS HAVE RULED out the possibility that noise detected at sea could have come from an Argentine submarine missing with 44 people aboard, in the latest bad news to hit their relatives.

    “The sound footprint could not correspond to a sub’s… it may have been a noise from a living thing,” said navy spokesman Enrique Balbi.

    “The search continues,” he added, noting that there are 14 vessels and 10 aircraft scouring area 24 hours a day in the midst of a storm front in the South Atlantic that is expected to ease today.


    Worried relatives of 44 missing Argentine submariners were comforted Tuesday by banners and the support of countrymen who gathered outside a naval base here. For now, all they can do is wait, hope and pray the crew will be rescued.

    But time may not be on their side. In a worst-case scenario, the submarine ARA San Juan may run out of oxygen by Wednesday -- if it has been unable to garner a fresh supply of air at the surface.

    It's not good of course but what's there to say.

    Anything going wrong with a boat that is naturally underwater is much worse and gives little chance of survival.

    Most likely best case scenario is that at some point in the future it gets found and the relatives get closure.

    And now 2 politicians are calling the royal navy pirates when trying to help with the search. There' a time and place for that crap and it' not when one of the largest navies in the world is trying to help.
