    Russia

    Need a thread on Russia too, like the China thread.

    The Russians are trying to blockade the Black Sea

    ‘Unprovoked escalation’: US slams Russian plan to block Black Sea (msn.com)

    T
    he British have just dispatched a task force of frigates and a light cruiser to enter the Black Sea. They are over a week away from reaching the critical entry point at Istanbul. It's not clear what will happen if the Russians refuse to allow the British ships to enter.

    Meanwhile, the Russians have now massed 120,000 troops on the border with Ukraine threatening an invasion.

    Re: Russia

    Interesting that Russia is massing divisions, marking tanks, setting up field hospitals on Ukraine border, yet Biden admin is doing nothing, allows Russia full control of Black Sea. Democrats impeached Trump on stupid made up charges of delaying aid to Ukraine for 2 weeks.. Goosey supported this.. and yet stays quiet on this, and will stay quiet when Russia takes back Ukraine.

    Their hypocrisy and lies are so open they don't even care about it anymore when they are called out on it.

    When Trump was POTUS.. there was no Aggression by Russia, China, N Korea, or Iran.. There was historic peace deals in Middle East.. All FACTS

    Now, the whole world knows Biden is a weak president and they don't fear retaliation

    Re: Russia

    Putin has ordered over 100,000 Russian troops to return to their bases and vacate the border region with Ukraine and Crimea. About 20,000 troops remain to guard and maintain the equipment still there. Some international sources hail this as a show of restraint by Putin/the Russians, but experts point out that by leaving behind the tanks, artillery and other heavy equipment, those 100,000 troops could easily and quickly return.

    Meanwhile, tension builds in the Black Sea as a squadron of British ships continue to sail toward the disputed waters.

    Re: Russia

    One of rootin' tootin' Putin's missiles nearly sunk another Russian ship! We won't have to fight the Russkies at sea, they'll just sink themselves!

    Actually, the "just missed" frigate wouldn't have been sunk since the warhead on the erratic missile was not armed. Would have done some damage though, and possibly some casualties as well. Seems Putin's boys were testing a new anti-ship cruise missile fired from a light cruiser when the not-so-guided missile went out of control. Since the warhead was not armed the signal to self-destruct didn't do anything, so the crew of the cruiser could just watch in horror as the 12-foot long missile careened out of control toward other ships in the fleet. Traveling at nearly 600 mph by the time it had gotten 3 miles down range, at a varying altitude between 15 and 250 feet up, and leaving a marked vapor trail behind, it honed in on a Russian frigate. Not sure if they had been painted by the missile's on-board guidance system the frigate used microwaves to "distract" the runaway rocket. Whether that had any effect or not is unknown, but the missile cruised by the frigate, a mere 20 feet overhead and crashed into the sea shortly thereafter.

    Gotta love our Russkie rivals, never a dull moment!

    Re: Russia

    Less than 100 miles from one of Putin's vacation houses...

    Flying non-stop from Fort Bragg, 750 US paratroopers hit the ground in Estonia, near the Russian border, and were joined by 400 British troopers, in a quick-deploy training exercise. Demonstrating the US's capability to deploy troops anywhere in the world sent a message to those who needed to be listening, that only the US possesses such international capacity. Some question if the chosen landing zone was done to send Putin a personal message, but a US Army spokesman said it had more to do with an invitation from Estonian military planners to participate in a joint training exercise.

    Whether on purpose, or by accident, surely Putin got a message of some sort. Officials say there were only isolated border guard posts on the Russian border, and had they wanted to, the troopers could have landed on Putin's compound without any resistance.

    The three nations that compose the Baltic States have long feared a Russian invasion and have asked NATO to maintain a strong presence on the ground. But, the Baltic nations have successfully repelled a Russian invasion before. The day after the end of WWI (November 11, 1918), Russian forces (commie bastards) stormed across the border. Western leaders, ironically, okayed Germany to respond as it had an army in the region. Together with the armies of the three nations...although Latvia had at first sided with the commies, out of fear of being destroyed...the Russians were forcibly evicted.

    Months later, the Germans turned on the Baltic nations, and they themselves had to be defeated and driven out.

    Rumor mill says Colonial pipeline paid the Russian hackers a ransom to get back control of the pipeline. This is wrong, and stupid, on so many levels.

    Re: Russia

    Could it be true? Darkside hackers have themselves been hacked. Stories swirling that maybe after Colonial pipeline paid the ransom, the money was removed from their account and is poof! gone. It could have been the US guvmint, the FBI or Dept of Treasury, that snatched the $5 million back. That would be awesome if true. Others say it was more likely a rival hacking gang that nailed them and took the money. And still one pundit says he is hearing the money was not yet paid, not transferred yet, but the hackers released control of the pipeline and now they end up with nada!
