We spent all those Cold War years fighting the Russkies. Under Reagan we whipped the Russkies. Now under Obama, we might be taking lessons from the Russkies.

Here's an interesting video how Russkies deal with political correctness.

I'm not one much for Marxism. I sure am not in favor of Obama's Marxist theories. But I've got to hand it to the Russkies for knowing when political correctness just gets in the way of getting a good job done.

Watch for yourselves. Make your own conclusions.


This videotape shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. The Euro Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties.

All explanations are in Russian with a single exception of when a wounded pirate says in English. All conversations between the commandos are in Russian. If you don't understand Russian, the pictures speak for themselves.

The soldiers freed their compatriots, moved all the pirates to their own (pirate) ship, searched the pirate ship for weapons and explosives, (many were found) and then they left the ship and exploded it with all remaining pirates on it.

The commandos sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. That is, they used the anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. Usually, they were hung.

I would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somalian Pirates

Russkies? I didn't know there were Russkies in this world. Sarcasm aside Russia is a democratic society now. President Obama is not a Marxest and never well me. Awesome video though!

Yeah, not only is the video awesome......the video leaves to the imagination whether the Russkies took the Somali Pirates off the boat before they blew it out of the water.

So Hitchcockian........

While I watched the Russkie Navy (and can you imagine how bad arse the Russkie Marines must be) stack up those Somali confiscated Kalashnikovs....I got to thinking about this little ditty on Manswers I saw the other night.

Kind of informative in this Age of Unreason in America....

What is the world's smallest handgun you can buy?

What Is the World's Biggest Handgun?

Guns. You can never get enough conversation about guns.

Hey, check out the Kalashnikov the Russkie over to the side is holding while the other Russkie frisks the guy...
