Sure, we'll all get up in arms about Miley Cyrus, but about something that actually matters?
You know, I had a strange sense of deja vu when I read that. Can anyone else from remember from the top of your head what all the past silly celebrity distractions were?
Anyone know what Missile system they just imported from Russia as I've heard the system is capable of striking back at warships ?

As far as I know there aren't many in Syria to begin with. The "naval base" there consists of a pier and four or five sailors there. There may be some to advise for the new weapons systems but I don't think many Russian troops are normally stationed there.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia currently has no Defence Ministry personnel in Syria, the Vedomosti newspaper reported on Wednesday, indicating Moscow has withdrawn staff from its naval facility in the Mediterranean port of Tartous and may have stopped using it.
If accurate, the report could indicate Russia was concerned about the danger to its workers posed by the rebellion against Moscow's ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, analysts said.

Yeah, I feel for those guys that fly them. Fighter jocks have the same problem on cross country missions. They get a plastic bag with a sponge in it. They raise the seat all the way up and back, and lock the rudder pedals and go for it. There have been a few incidents of instrument panel strikes though.
I really don't think we have black triangles, but I know a few of what is in the dark, and I wanna see them come out into the light. What I do know is amazing.

Well folks, looks like this could be it. We are about to start what, IMHO, will be WW III.
I look for any attack to happen tonight or tomorrow night. This world has gone to sh*t, and I'm afraid it's about to get a hell of a lot worse.

For crying out loud ... it's looking like I should go make a run to Target and pick up dry goods, canned goods, etc. Just in case. Heck .. time to change the water in the water barrels too. This thing really looks like it could explode pretty soon. UGH. Better to be safe and over stocked ....
Israel is deploying all of its missile defenses as a precaution against possible Syrian retaliatory attacks should Western powers carry out threatened strikes on Syria, Army Radio said on Wednesday.
It did not say how many interceptor batteries were mobilized by Israel's air defence corps. The missile defenses include the short-range Iron Dome, the mid-range Patriot and the long-range Arrow II.
