brainwashing propaganda so brainwashed. Quote from source of info

 

Business Life (Delovaya Zhizn) reports on markets, finance, entrepreneurship, finance, and leisure, scarcely an outlet for sensational information. Its innocuously entitled “Increases in Pay for Military in 2015,” however, reveals what appear to be official figures on the number of Russian soldiers killed or made invalids “in eastern Ukraine.”

While Murika try find imaginary Russian troops in Ukraine... Russian expeditionary corps suddenly appeared in Syria!

 

http://spioenkop.blo...n-military.html

 

 

A translation from 2:03 to 2:30 of the video is provided below:

2:03: ''Давай!'' - Give me/Come on!

2:06: ''Бросай!'' - Throw!

2:10: "Ещё раз! Ещё давай!'' - Once again! Do it again!

2:30: "Павлин, павлин, мы выходим" - Pea****, Pea**** [callsign], we are moving out.

Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.
According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base.
In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.

 

Best news evar. Many pro-west terrorists flee from Russia into ISIS for saving their lives .... and Evil Empire came for them now.  Just imagine how hot butthurt they must have from this.  Russia so much trollolo.

The jet pictured is probably a MiG-29, not a Su-34. Impossible to be sure from a low res photo, but Syria actually has MiG 29s and has had them for a long time so logic dictates they're Mig 29s unless there's compelling evidence otherwise, which a low res image sourced from Al Qaeda really isn't. Indeed, from that picture alone it could be an F-15 about as much as a Su34 or a Mig29.

 

It also seems unlikely on several other levels as there are very few Su34s, full stop. Their existing planes can carry out highly effective precision strikes when give the opportunity to, such as when they hit an Ahrar ash Sham ('Al Nusra lite') leadership meeting and killed most of their leaders last year.

 

Drones seem pretty likely though, and general military supplies are pretty much a given.

SSN-21 USS Seawolf breaks the ice in the North Pole.

Not the first time a boat of her class has done this. Probably the most famous incident was when her sister ship, SSN-22 USS Connecticut surfaced to find that a polar bear tried to take a bite off of her rudder, to no avail:

Russia is constructing a military base in the Syrian port city of Latakia, U.S. intelligence officials said last week, raising alarm about the country’s increasing support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
The Telegraph reports:
The anonymous officials say Russia has set up an air traffic control tower and transported prefabricated housing units for up to 1,000 personnel to an airfield serving the Syrian port city of Latakia.

God damn Russia, intervening in other nations. Would be funny if they committed ground forces, even if they'd leave Syria in ruins.

NATO is brainless clay footed Giant.
http://www.defenseon...nseone_today_nl

“Are we keeping up with threats?…Absolutely not,” said U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Brett Heimbigner Thursday. “The demands for intelligence… to accurately deal with some of these crises is clearly insufficient.”
Heimbigner’s latest frustration: “From an alliance perspective, what Russia is doing and the ability of Russia to surprise us on a very consistent basis.”
“We were able to get some warning, but did not see from a strategic perspective that one, necessarily, coming until just a couple days ago,” he said

“In fact, we are now in a situation where, as an alliance, we can’t even come up with a coordinated threat assessment overall”


Firstly Georgia and Crimea, Syria now - foolishness of Western HQ is obvious to anyone. Roles are changed - West is nothing more than our prey now.

Not really a fan of Putin's, but I fail to see trying to stabilize at least parts of Syria could make matters worse?

Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a pickle and I desperately need your help. Do you have any idea where you can find a pair of British cavalry field boots from circa 1900-1950? I could go with US boots as well, as long as the model is similar enough (many are). To be specific, I need the ones with three buckles, like these. In fact I just lost that auction and have been gnashing my teeth ever since because I need a pair of boots exactly like those, and £79 is a steal.

 

Do you have any tips?

Are there Fora dedicated to the re-enactment of first and second world war campaigns? If so one would think that would be quite the spot to gain the inside track on any such accoutrements, re-enactors are notoriously anal in observance of their uniforms so might have tips on acquiring such. I once heard two pseudo Redcoats arguing heatedly over buttons for a solid hour, they did look magnificent however.
