« NATO Expansion Causing Conflicts | Main | The True History Of Putin And Bush »



I suspect Russian missiles will soon be parked in Cuba and Venezuela for the same reasons they are being parked in Poland. These countries might even request for them as protection against the U.S. The beginning of Bizarro world on Earth?


You might want to watch this video of an American girl thanking Russian troops for saving her from Georgians. she is 12 years old. Watch it at: http://www.russiatoday.com/news/news/29075

You haven't mentioned the lack of Sunspots, now there is talk of a mini ice-age!


The section about Russia easily handling US-trained troops was very interesting to me.

This is because another pundit, the obviously biased Ret. US Col. Sam Gardiner, has popped up with comments that Russia is absolutely afraid of US "Shock-and-Awe".

He states that, because of this fear, the Russians regard tactical nuclear war as the only answer to mass US conventional forces. He also goes on to state that the Russians moved tac nukes into the Georgian theater this past week. I have not been able to find any other sources that can confirm or deny this.

Personally, I am glad to see that Mother Russia is still able to take care of business. As an American who grew up in the 80s and 90s, I am fully aware of the irony in cheering her on.

The Russians also make some gorgeous planes these days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXgSjPgiSAU

«Most of the MIG-25 elements are copied by the US in F-14 and F-15. This is one of the reasons I don't like F-family. Su-30MKI, MKK (3 and 4-th upgrade for India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, simply the Pacific region will fly this wonder machine), Su-27SM for Russian air force has got such avionic, that is simply another wonder, it is the perfect jet. And now somebody talks about copying of B-2 by the Russians, B-2 is a flying misunderstanding, the Big Brother of the biggest misunderstanding F-117, the so called "Stealth", haha. Look at the results of Indo-American Joint Flights in India and US. Su-30MKI versus F-15, Su-30MKI versus F-16, nine of ten battles won by the Sukhoi and most interesting: MIG-21 (upgraded version) won more than half of the battles against F-16 and even F-15. This is fantastic! I wish Bulgarian politics weren't stupid and didn't buy F-16 second hand. Only Su-27 family or MIG-29. Everything else is dust in the wind.»

The U.S.'s F-22 is claimed to be great and stealthy, and Mach 2, but it's absurdly expensive. It has been said that "stealth" aircraft can now be detected, so they are now probably relegated to low-altitude operation. Possibly a huge waste of money!

Tu-160 "Blackjack" is twice as fast as the B1-B, and twice as stealthy. See:




Thanks for the great reply!

I too wonder if the Raptor is for real as the costs keep going up and the number of units planned keeps going down.

The Cope India exercises are extremely interesting since Indian pilots with "inferior" training and Russian planes match or best frontline US squadrons.

I will close with a link to a blogger that quotes an American Top Gun pilot as saying "Most of us here would give ANYTHING to fly a [Sukhoi] Flanker!":


I could not believe what I read here,
what about all the other citizens of the conflict!


"Well the US just lost to Cuba the baseball Olympics."

Well, yeah... many of the best major-league ballplayers come from South America, the Carribean, etc.

On the other hand... the US men's team owns the swimming pool.

"I am glad to see that Mother Russia is still able to take care of business."

So Russia prevailed over Georgia. Outstanding performance!

Those who go all gooey over Mother Russia's ability to take care of business should like this book a lot (3-line URL):
