With Russia's $650 billion rearmament plan, the bear sharpens its teeth

Recommended Posts

It makes a whole lot of sense for Russia to make a grab at Crimea -- but their justification of doing so is tattered. They should have just said that they were harboring weapons of mass destruction.

These Ukranians have balls of steel. An unarmed march on a captured air base:

And how the EU deals with this sort of provocation:

I give reddit all credit.

Crimea is necessary to control the Black Sea. With the oil and gas reserves in the area, he will not give up control of Crimea. My guess is that Putin will make some claim about Crimea being a majority Russian and to protect the people, it will remain under Russian control.

So on the bright side, maybe we'll get to walk in the footsteps of our grandfathers and sleep with their women and drink their expensive wine as we liberate the French. Bonus points if we can liberate them before the Russians get there.

Today that is not acceptable as it perpetuates the 'War Against Women'. You should be thrown in jail for even suggesting such an act in a jokingly way.

I'll forgive you if you post some hot pics of Ukranian chicks...the less clothes the better.

I picked up this book after seeing this post, and have to say, it's pretty spot on much of what has happened. Haven't really read any other Tom Clancy, but I would recommend for a suspenseful read with good parallels between what we're actually seeing over in Crimea right now.

Relax boys and girls, we have shown our hands and NOT all options are on the table.

Obama: U.S. Won’t Take Military Action in Ukraine

“We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine,” the President told San Diego’s NBC affiliate KNSD. Instead, Obama said, the U.S. will offer economic support to the new government in Ukraine while leveraging diplomatic pressure, including sanctions, against Russia.

We can all go back to preparing for the upcoming BBQ competition.

*COUGH* The marathon CBT also known as Cyber Awareness Challenge

It says it right in the name...it's no longer "training" i.e. the T in CBT...it's a "challenge." It's the fraternity initiation of the CBT world if you will, only the very elite can complete the "challenge" with their sanity/dignity intact.

I'm curious do the Russians or Chinese even have CBTs?

They do...the only reason the 10,000 Russian troops haven't breached the Eastern border of Ukraine is because they aren't all CBT complete yet. But once they are....
