Sailors of the Pacific Ocean Fleet Paid Homage to the Heroes of Tsushima

Sinking of the Battleship Borodino

______________________________

During their passage of the Korea Strait near Tsushima islands, ships of the Pacific Ocean Fleet (TOF-MF), the destroyer Admiral Vinogradov, replenishment tanker Ilim, and ocean tug MB-37, honoured the sacrifice of the sailors who fell in the bloody battle in May 1905 of the 2nd Pacific Squadron of Vice-Admiral Z P Rozhdestvensky with a Japanese fleet under Marshal-Admiral Tōgō Heihachirō. The Russian ships stopped at the site of ​​the tragic battle. On all ships, the crews held patriotic rallies and memorial services. Then, sailors lowered a wreath into the ocean from the Admiral Vinogradov. Transiting the Sea of ​​Japan, the ships’ crews practised manoeuvring as part of a task force. Besides this, the Admiral Vinogradov held unit exercises for its antiterrorist unit. The crews also carried out damage control exercises. At present, the ships are in the East China Sea, continuing their exercises and patrols.

NB:

“Rozhdestvensky” (вице-адмирала Зиновия Рождественского) is the spelling used by the Minoborony… some other sources use “Rozhestvensky”. You pays your money and takes your choice, I guess…

The drippy-nosed Anglo American toddlers are forever telling us how strong that they are. However, the US DoD plans to have enough forces to conduct one major war and one minor war at a time… gee, they’ve already reached the limit, haven’t they? There are fewer brigades in the US Army than there are in the Russian Army. There are fewer brigades in the US Army than there are DIVISIONS in the PLA. How, then, can it have “overwhelming conventional superiority?” Don’t listen to the asshats at Stratfor… they have no technical means (that is, no SIGINT or ELINT assets)… they don’t have enough analysts (they only have 75 to 200 employees total)… they don’t have actual and vetted HUMINT assets at all (they do have personal contacts with some middle-level flunkies, but no one of importance). They’re crapitalist bullshitters… used-car salesmen of the worst sort. They don’t have any more cred than I do. They do have an ex-Navy SEAL as an exec… which gets them into some DoD circles, but by no means at the highest level. It shows you the level of intelligence of those who buy their crank services (it does tell you much about the level of brains of the rightwing clowns who take them at face value). “Shadow CIA”… anyone who believes that belongs in a rubber room with no access to sharps.

The images… they’re the Russian Naval Infantry… the “Black Death”… the SEALs had best watch their step around them. Pride goeth before a fall, I hear tell…

Argentina OKs Russian Bases

00 A los heroes de Malvinas. 06.12

______________________________

Argentina, the second-largest country in South America, agreed to allow Russian military bases on its territory. Whilst the USA and the whole world were fixated on the events taking place in the Ukraine, Russia stepped up its diplomatic efforts in the Western Hemisphere. President Putin discussed the idea of ​​military bases in South America with Defence Minister S K Shoigu in February. Russia is considering establishing military bases in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Argentina. In recent years, all these countries were active Russian allies. Argentina’s OK to Russian military bases seriously strengthens Moscow’s position in South America. According to the publication Guardian Liberty Voice, the USA actually slept through the appearance of Russian military bases. A Russian military presence in the Western Hemisphere confronts the USA with a difficult task and marks a reduction in Washington’s influence. The USA has never had sufficient funds for missile defence along its southern borders.

“NATO Can Deploy Wherever It Wants”: NATO Admits that it’s an Instrument of Aggression, Not a Defensive Bloc

00 StopNATONow! 01.09.14

******

00 Adams. NATO Rools! 2014

______________________________

New NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg boasted, “Next year, at the ministerial meeting, we’ll take decisions regarding the so-called spearhead but, even before we establish it, NATO has a strong army after all. These capabilities already exist. We have them, and we can deploy them in individual regions. This is only an add-on to what the alliance already has”. Sounds impressive, huh… don’t get excited… it’s only a matter of several thousand troops, equal to a single brigade. Stoltenberg, a former Norwegian Prime Minister (a rather bellicose rightwing Labour Party member… an equal of Chilly Hilly in the USA) is blowing smoke out of his ass, no doubt to please the American neocon bosses of NATO. Reuters trumpeted last month that the USA transferred 20 M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks and about 700 soldiers (with Bradley MICVs and Stryker light AFVs… the latter are lightly-armoured POS jokes that one can cut to pieces with a light autocannon or even an old WW-II-vintage anti-tank rifle) to the Baltic States. Again, this is bullshit. 20 tanks is only 2 tank companies (10 tanks per company, 3 per platoon)… although Bradleys are fully capable MICVs, Strykers are lightly-armoured crapola AFVs only fit to fight in low-level COIN operations in the Third World. This is a force equal to an understrength battalion task force (there was no talk of artillery or helicopter support units). Russia’s supposed to be scared of such a deployment?!? It’s nothing but a tripwire force… if the Russians attacked, the USA would respond with tactical nukes. NATO admits that it’s an aggressor… it no longer serves a defensive purpose (if it ever did), a notional purpose that lapsed with the fall of the USSR in 1991. Remember what US Secretary of State James Baker said to Gorbachyov… that if the Soviets allowed the DDR and BRD to unify as a single state, NATO wouldn’t move “one inch” further east. Furthermore, Jack Matlock, the US ambassador to the USSR at the time, went on record as stating that the USA gave Moscow a “clear commitment” on NATO’s pledge not to expand further in Russia’s direction.

There are liars afoot… they’re NOT in Moscow…
