Syria, Obama, global sentiment, military implications


quote:

"Looks like Putin had enough of Obama pounding his chest. Today the Slava class Heavy Missile cruiser Moskova joined four other ships in position to shoot down Cruise missiles lofted from the USN task force. And her very modern SA-N-6 Grumble (S-300) missiles could surely destroy a goodly percentage of the Tomahawks launched.

 The surprising development could expand further should no deal be reached at the G-20. Further Russian options include recalling the Admiral Kuznetsov task force to join them. Sending the extra Naval Aviation Mig-31's with their cruise missile killer systems (There are 35-40 operational); or deploying Russian staffed S-300 systems to bolster air defenses.

 Wake up Democrats and war wishing Republicans. There is little to be gained by a gratuitous missile attack and far more to lose. In fact, talk in Iran was that Obama's game of red lines was all the reason Iran needed to justify going full nuke. Which would pretty much destroy the weird claim it's all a matter of American credibility. Credibility crumbles when countries ignore our threats and assert their own destiny." Dannytoro

The problem is that the real American "exceptionalism" is the fact that we're such slow learners. emoticon

Hello crogin,
Welcome to Nr BU.

You're right. The reason we're so good at blundering is because we get so much practice.

Thanks for joining us here crogin.

Visit often. Post a lot. And please visit us @Yuku too.
