I think it's only a matter of time before WW3 starts.


WW3 started in 1947... it is only becoming more obvious now.

naw, id say it was more like 9/11/2001. But in the current context in relation to the previous world wars, more likely it was 2011 considering the parties involved and the circumstances.

I think the Chinese may look on a Russian presence in Vietnam as a helpful counterpoint to the US naval presence in the region. The PRC has had a very strained relationship with the Vietnamese government, and the PRChina may see the Russian presence there as the helpful presence of an ally rather than an act of provocation.

Although the possibility may be slim at the moment, I think it is not outside the realm of possibility that Duterte will kick out the USA's military and intelligence operations in the Philippines, and initiate a relationship with the Russians. So the Russians could stand to gain a presence in The Philippines regardless of what transpires in Vietnam.

Are you saying that Russia is not attacking civilian targets? That would be a change from their policy in Chechniya, wouldn't it?


Instead of making up assumptions and making # up, why don't you actually read my post instead of asking dumb questions with the intention of misleading people.

FYI, no I didn't say what the above troll claims.

I did read your post. It included a long list of alleged war crimes on the part of the United States, but failed to mention the ongoing war crimes on the part of Russia.


FYI, no I didn't say what the above troll claims.


Then let's clear up this little misunderstanding: you do agree that Russian and Syrian forces have been deliberately attacking civilian targets, including hospitals and humanitarian aid convoys?

I don't agree with it. They may have accidentally hit a hospital the way the USA has accidentally hit a Hospital. They may accidentally kill civilians when attacking rebels in civilian neighborhoods the way the USA sometimes kills civilians when attack threats in civilian neighborhoods. I don't believe either one intends to hit civilians. Problem is if they cannot evacuate the war zone, they may become casualties of war by ANY side.

I do agree that Western coalition forces intentionally attacked Syrian forces which allowed ISIS to regain some ground outside an airbase. And once they were pushed back, they intentionally hit several bridges to stop any Eastern coalition forces from advancing on Raqqa shortly after.

Some media are reporting that the Russian Navy aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov has left the Kola Peninsula.


TARTOUS, SYRIA (6:40 A.M.) - Yesterday, the Russian Aircraft Carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, began its long journey to the Syrian port-city of Tartous, carrying dozens of attack helicopters and fighter jets.

False alarm on the earlier media reporting of the Russian aircraft carrier task force leaving Severomorsk port.

The carrier and support vessels were all still in Severomorsk as of the morning of the 14th October.

14th October- Carrier Kuznetsov plus cruiser Peter Velikiy and destroyer Severomorsk. Tanker could be Osipov?

15th October

The Task Force has left Severomorsk port during the morning of 15th October.

All gone as of this morning 15th October from the Severomorsk webcams. You can see the smoke from the task force as they power up and leave port.

Cruiser Peter Veliky is heading out with tugs escorting. Kuznetsov in the background.



Later webcam views shows that the complete carrier task force has left the port.

In addition there has been Morse Code noted on some of the Russian Navy High Frequencies. One of the identified call signs is the support tug Nikolay Chiker. The call sign is RAL48 and was noted in a communication check this morning.

Image from 14th October shows MiG-29Ks Fulcrum D and Su-33s Flanker D on deck of Kuznetsov. Possibly they will also deploy Russian Navy Ka-52K attack helos?

Looks like this will the first combat deployment of Kuznetsov. The Su-33s have apparently been updated to give them more of a ground attack role.


Russia is outfitting its carrier-based Sukhoi Su-33 fighter aircraft with the SVP-24 air-to-ground targeting system, according to Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) sources cited by the newspaper Izvestia. The SVP-24 is a specialised navigation and targeting system produced by Russian avionics developer Gefest and T. It enables combat aircraft to deliver conventional ordnance with accuracy approaching guided munitions, Russian sources claim. Historically the Su-33 had only a basic air-to-ground capability.

That's what happens when you don't cut Putin in. What this sweep means is that, contrary to what some people claimed, there is rampant corruption in Russia.

Russia's Non-Participation in ICC Rome Statute Explained by National Interests

Russia’s decision to not take part in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is explained by national interests, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

MOSCOW(Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order on Russia’s non-participation in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. "This is a position which the country assumed being guided by national interests," Peskov told reporters.


sputniknews.com...

Yes, being found guilty of war crimes for murdering civilians would not be in Russia's national interest.

So does that cut both ways, or is only Russia culpable ?? I thought supporting terrorism was also a war crime, but clearly our government calls it spreading peace and Democracy??
