Citizen warriors are not chum. Brain washed blowhards and their lust for blood beg to be the fools in battle.

Lis ten to the Keiser Report's last 10 episodes. Herbert and he write their own material and choose their own guests.

Unc le Sam (that is you, I & we the people) is flat on his face with Daddy Warbucks and his five large bank thugs pinning arms and legs while the big dog Saud of all Sauds pushes his boot into Uncle Sam's neck (need for oil to keep big industry alive) to force instability so the Sauds will have complete control of mid-east oil. Bahrain had a little taste of dog boot on its neck and still does.

all it needs, is one small glitch to trigger chaos, this world needs one, especially with the dirty politics and insinuating agenda the world elites are trying to accomplish. Russia is the only country who does not agree to imperialism and detrimental politicizing bullying techniques in the name of 'freedom',,,,,

  


Tr ue--it only agrees with RUSSIAN imperialism.

Looks like it means business. Might knock down a wailing wall while it's at it.

FALSE, I was stationed on the USS Roosevelt (A US carrier) ...

  

OK, you are experienced guy.
Tell me pls, why NATO is so troubled about Moskva cruiser?
I'll answer you - this type of warships ("Slava" class) WAS DESIGNED for sinking carriers. With all it's capabilities about "12 direct hits" (hits of what? 500kg of hexogen, accelerated up to 2M speed - SS-N-27?... Hmmmm...) and with "the flight deck alone can keep her afloat".
I wish to US Navy not to test these possibilities of SPECIALLY DESIGNED carrier killing warship Moskva (Moscow)
If you wish - OK..

Historically Russian equipment has been overrated

 

CaosSalam 15.09.2013 19:07

hope they,russia and usa and if possible,england,fra nce,israel and whoever more has these killing machines make a good use of them killing each other,so leaving the world in Peace.

FALSE, I was stationed on the USS Roosevelt (A US carrier) and our carrier group goes into the Mediterranean every deployment! Plus good luck trying to hit one of our carriers with those missiles with all of the anti-missiles tech that each carrier has. Not to mention the fact that our carriers can take over 12 DIRECT hits and will STILL not sink, the flight deck alone can keep her afloat. So tell me again how this "carrier killer" is going to get pass a US carrier group AND sink the carrier? Or even get the US to give it 2 thoughts?

Moskva was completely overhauled and renewed in 1999 and P700 Bazalt missiles were substituted by P1000 Volcano missiles with the range up to 1000km.
so both carriers Truman and Nimitz have to stay away from Mediterranean as in this pretty small sea they will be sitting ducks inside Moskva's missile range. Therefore (because of Russian subs too) they are still in the Red sea and there are no US navy carrier groups in Mediterranean

They know the us navy & military are the best , they know the us could easily sink every Russian ship & submarines an wipe out their military easily , the u s needs to escort their ships back to their home , they don't want to confront the u s navy or military and that goes for any chinese military too

 

roberta allen 14.09.2013 06:26

They know the us navy & military is the best , they should know us would every ship & submarines they have easily , and knock their military out

The Russians are just "saber rattling"...the y won't risk a World War 3 scenario over Syria when they know that such a war would mean the total destruction of their country..Putin knows that..nothing will happen from the Russian side.

Most importantly don't tease a sleeping bear

Ok so everyone is waiting to see who blinks first, does Dan think there isn't at least one sub tailing the flatops? I do, even though I live in the west believe without doubt a lot of reliance & basis of capabilities is derived from Hollywood. I do truly believe this is probably the most dangerous time far greater than the cuban crisis. We in the west would do well to reflect on the recent proxy war the US fought through Georgia. It only took the Russians 6 days not 6 years to put a lid on the conflict. This war won't be fought looking for enemy hiding in caves-the war will come to you, even your shores.

Half of these comments are like playground arguements over who's dad is the toughest, simply put two adavanced navies are bolstering assets in the med, either for defence of allies or to attack enemies so all we have at the moment is a dangerous standoff. There is one other thing that bugs me is all the people on here who seem to be itching for a fight, go back to playing COD as any person who ha seen death in conflict is either stupid or insane to want more.
