Question by Jack P: Do US Navy torpedoes have the speed to sink this ship?
Should the need arise?

It travels from China to the west coast of the US carrying cargo in four days. Goes back to China deadhead [empty] to pick up another load of rubber monster toys for US consumers.

The time might come when the US Navy is charged with sinking ships such as this one. Will they need to use aircraft, cruise missiles, or will our submarines be capable of catching it?
