I'm pretty sure there were already U boats were parked within sight of land up and down the US eastern coast to try and hit shipping as they left port. Doesn't seem like much of a stretch to send them into the gulf as well. If only to launch the occasional torpedo at a coastal town in texas, it would divert US navy ships to the region.

Inside the mind of the Red Baron (ok it's a ww1 story)

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/military/m ... baron.html

Interesting how one of the worlds greatest military aviators, had such respect for his flying enemy, and in the end, looked like he despised the war and what he had become...

It actually reminds me of Rick and Max in Robotech
