So much belligerence from the US, so little real solutions!

One more of US euphemisms: "There are many reasons for exercises with allies, it allows us an opportunity to assure our NATO allies that we support them"... That is of course even truer the other way round: to make sure their NATO allies can support the US wars or better yet: act as proxy force to fight the US wars.

There isn't really any war in sight in need of naval support, is there? In other words - just showing that the US has better or bigger or more advanced ships than Russia! Assuming all the gadgetry functions when needed - which it doesn't always do.

The West is present in the Black sea, where it must not be, and they shouldn't push it.


The Black Sea shores belong to 3 NATO states, 2 which don't formally belong to any military alliance and Russia.

I don't dispute the concern Russia has to keep its naval base and the freedom to exit Black Sea's waters unhindered. I understand the logic of limiting the amount, type and duration for vessels belonging to other countries. But it's obvious you think Black Sea is a Russian sea which is strange coming from one irked by a comparison he took out of context.

Who do they think they're kidding?

They are there to drop off arms for their patsy's and US/UK troublemakers and murderers.

Too many boys spouting off on the internet think that someone else is going to do their fighting for them. This might have worked in the past when shooting at women, children, and feeble old men, but taking on Russia will be an entirely different scenario.

American morons are world-famous for not knowing any geography.

Russia should install signals all over the Black sea, or the Americans may end up trying to dock their garbarge at Sevastopol or Novorrosiya.


And the history too.
Coz, theirs history is only less than 500 years old after the wealthy fled from the mainland europe, followed by the others.
missed in history, obselete in future

When war starts, there are two options. Nuclear, or the draft. Either way, I'd be very uncomfortable right now if I were an American male under the age of thirty.

American superiority complex is now becoming financially costly and comical!


Mark 19.03.2014 16:32

I am sure the American ships cannot dock on Odessa because the locals will chase them out!!!!!!
