What's your take on this Deltaboy?
Doesn't it strike you as somewhat...unusual?
A Russian owned, cargo vessel, laden with Timber, sails from Finland, having previously been docked at Kaliningrad, Russia, (where nuclear warheads
It is then boarded by "Swedish" Anti-Drugs police, (that the Swedish government knows nothing about). They tie up the crew for 12 hours, damage the
communications? then leave in inflatables.
The ship then manages to contact the authorities 4 days later, only to later disappear, completely without trace.
AND as quoted in one of the source articles;
"On Monday, President Dmitry Medvedev submitted a draft law to the State Duma that would entitle the Kremlin, for the first time, to deploy
Russian military forces overseas at its discretion “to protect Russian citizens” and to “combat piracy.” The very next day, Mr. Medvedev
ordered Russian forces into action to “find, and if need be, free the ship Arctic Sea.”
In other words, when he found out that the vessel was "missing", the Russian President rushed through a law which allowed him to deploy the Russian
Navy, to combat piracy?
The Russians now have at least FIVE warships hunting for the vessel, and it's cargo of.... timber???
Yeah, there's definitely nothing to see here. Move along please, nothing to see here, everything is in order.
