A few days ago an American warship was engaged in training exercises with our NATO allies.
Russian fighter jets from airbases in the Kaliningrad Oblast flew extremely close
to our naval vessel, a very dangerous maneuver.
Serious business, these Russians.
What is next?
Russian submarines passing through our naval patrols, our sonar nets, laying off our largest cities, listening to our rock and roll while they conduct missile drills?
Dangerous times we live in.
Increase your stash of oil and filters soon for the doom and gloom.
And happy Valentine's Day!

Sounds a lot like what they did in the 80s.

Doesn’t really worry me...

If you only knew how low and fast I flew by a Russian “fishing trawler” that was shadowing our carrier off the East Coast, you wouldn’t find what they’re doin now so objectionable.

Media wants to make a big deal out of it, so you’ll watch their show, or click on their story, but the Russian behavior is nothing new at all.

February 10 -- the US bombed a convoy of ISIS Hunters group in Syria, killed around 100 Russian soldiers.
February 14 -- a US drone bombed a T-72 tank in Syria killing the three crew members.

Dangerous times indeed.

How's that supposed to help during the doom?

This is nothing compared to the cold war and the fallout shelters of the 50's/60's.

Particularly dangerous when folks are willing to repeat absolute lies.

Got a credible source for your “killed around 100 Russian soldiers” story?

The US did bomb pro-regime forces. They did estimate casualties at about 100. Those forces were using Russian equipment.

But that is NOT the same as Russian Soldiers.

We don't advertise our own maneuvers.

That all being said I think its good practice to keep military on their toes as long as no lives lost. Many successful suprise attack seems to be someone asleep at he wheel historically.

Russia vs. the USA...

It's all a side show created by business partners.

"Old Americans" fall the BIG BAD RUSSIAN stuff with surprising uniformity.

Unfortunately, not where it counts.

Use it to barter for food, ammo, fresh water, safe passage out of the wastelands.
For some, oil and filters are their life, they will trade for anything you need.

We call them "private contractors", they call them "volunteer fighters".

Today must be a day for seeing how long it takes to get a thread locked by the moderators.

Or deleted.

Have you ever ----
lived in Russia, or a country of the former Soviet Union?
visited one of the above?
known anyone that lived through the horror of Soviet occupied countries?
If not, go, see for yourself, experience the evil empire first hand, and then tell us it is only a sideshow.

I see it is one of your favorite movies too!
I was wondering how long it would take for someone to know the script!
Well done!
