Why not 'question more' with regards to your own Kremlin and their corruption


Except it is not "my Kremlin" as you put it or my state. So therefore there is no need for me to question Russian domestic politics. There is however a need for me to question my own gov't and its no1 ally the US because their decisions directly affect domestic polictics in my country, which is the UK. I suggest you do the same. I presume therefore you are American. Forgive me if i'm wrong but you seem to share their blinkered view of the world and of history.

America is renowned worldwide as the most technically advanced in the world


I think a better choice of words would be: America is notorious worldwide, in the mis-use of advanced technology all over the world.

we must need all these super pricey super duper weapons to defend "this system" from the aliens who might come save the rest of us. in the mean time, we'll create more jobs to get more people dependent on the gov/war machine.

Any weapon is very efficient when used against civilians.
If American weapons are so advanced, why didn't they win a single war?
Just turn the page in your manual, you are getting boring :)

Viv a you previously stated in another article you were 'from a EU country' yourself.You have just destroyed that cover,again proving how pathetic your nation has become.Where shall I start with this article?America is renowned worldwide as the most technically advanced in the world no matter how much you hate to hear it.They test their weapons in many wars to help further advancements more than any other nation.If they haven't got experience I don't know who will

. ..not only broken and faulty, packed with spy-ware calling home and dead-switches too. That´s not the Russian way, the Russian way is advanced, cheap and reliable in all conditions.


We ll said.

How could other nations be intrested in buying US made broken, faulty military stuff? And why does even US wanna sell this junk to their "allies"? Maybe they dont care about thier "allies".. .
