Tell you what, let's defuse this militaristic silliness and just assume it's a global warming thread: there are now more artic waters to patrol! Carry on, nothing to see here...

I think the whole entire world is trying to flex it's military muscle. None of these things tend to surprise me at all. I don't really blame Russia for wanting to secure it's country. The United States thinks it's the only country in the world that has the right to "secure" their country. Between the American missisle shield in Europe and having nut jobs in office, I would be showing some military presence if I was leading Russia. I mean, come on, you can't really blame the Russians for their military actions lately. They have one of the most powerful countries in the world breathing down their necks.

It's all about resources. Russia is trying to lay claim to the resource rights in the Arctic. As is the US, Canada, Denmark and Norway. Muscle flexing is all.

This is good news! Planet X comes in from the South, and the Russians strike from the North just under the radar. This is going to work out great! Shelter in place!

Considering how large the Arctic coastline with Russia is I'm not all that surprised that they'd want to up their naval presence. I think the real reasoning for this is that with Russia being able to afford to maintain their military now they're going to start paying for things they'd normally be doing. The break up of the Soviet Union didn't stop hostilities, it simply meant one nation couldn't afford it and the other nation didn't feel like paying for something the other wasn't.

This is so funny, now that bush is going to lift the off shore drilling the Russians are protecting the Arctic coast.

I guess we don't know how far the so call off shore drilling will extend


Perhaps all the way to the Arctic.

if you take a closer look you will find that the last piece of the world war 3 puzzle has been set in place.. if the USA or any other country sails into waters Russia says or theres because the left a flag on the sea bed and challenges them to leave or surrender . Russia is already angry over the missile shield so im afraid neither will back down....

I can not wait for the Arctic wars to start, this one is going to be very good, perhaps China will start patrolling along side the Russians very soon.


Can you imagine the US mobilizing and entire fleet to the arctic.

Well taking into consideration that China, India and Korea are the ones making clothing now for America they are the ones that will be making a killing actually.

Great minds think alike....

This is just another move to lay claims for resources an ice free zone will open up.
