    Former Canadian Defence Dept., USSR/Russia analyst and diplomat, Patrick Armstrong, posts his latest Russian Fed Sitrep below.

    His section on the recent Ukraine Sea of Azov incident is well worth reading.

    But I particularly like his section "Nuggets From the Stupidity Mine" detailing the Royal Navy's HMS Duncan recent deployment to the Black Sea where they were buzzed by Russian aircraft. An event that resulted in this bollocks by one matelot:

    "They had 17 aircraft, we have 48 missiles - I think we're going to win that one," to which Armstrong responds: "In the real world, just before they noticed anything, the first Kinzhal would have slammed in at Mach 10."

    Yup, in the real world this is so true. But military propaganda and the prevailing BS we are fed by the media today are separated from the real world. Sadly. Playing with people's brains is what is in vogue.

    Not exactly on topic but also relevant is the recent post by a former US Army Special Forces officer (TTG) taken from Col. Patrick Laing's blog.

    TTG has focused on the recent bollocks of James Jeffrey, the US Envoy to Syria, wherein he announced that Washington is seeking a no-fly zone across all of Syria.

    Do these people ever understand reality one asks? Obviously not. As TTG reveals when he cites the new Russian-Syrian integrated air defence system that is now active across Syria and describes Jeffrey'a and his Neocon chums as the "Coalition of the Clueless because to do as he suggests means all out war.

    https://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic...-no-fly-zone-over-syria-all-of-syria-ttg.html

    Reading both the foregoing posts one gets the impression of an over the hill, punch-drunk heavily bruised heavyweight boxer in the last rounds of a title fight flailing wildly at his opponent to avoid certain defeat. He's drained and tired and his once mighty knockout punch is slow and ponderous and easy to avoid... :love:

    And below the final part of the triple nonsense; this one from Mike Whitney at Mint Press.

    There's nothing left of the Syrian Army, the Syrian army is Iran/Hezbollah... remove them and you have anarchy and ISIL 2.0...unless of course that is exactly your aim.

    How is it that the US can so openly promote anarchy in Syria and everyone just nod their heads?

    Re this incident ^^^ I remember seeing it in the news... afterwards a Nato commander spoke of the enormous bravery of the crew.... staring down the 17 Russian aircraft.... I'm thinking, what an idiot. What were they doing there in the first place and why should they fear for their lives... unless of course provoking Russia is their aim and they are now praising these men for bravely provoking the Russians. A bit like hiding behind a big wall then occasionally throwing a pebble to see if the giant stirs.... these men obviously being the pebble

    Americans are brainwashed by the medias, and only know what they are being told. The MSM are owned by the same corporations that financially support our candidates for office - so they are one and the same. To understand the extent of censorship towards any alternative news sources, Fortruss which is very informative and which I had mentioned on the forum quite a few times suddenly froze. It has the same headlines and stories that it had a week ago on the home page.

    Other alternative news sources that didn't follow the Washington propaganda line, have also complained about problems over the years. Reminds me of the USSR. It's Big Brother all over again! :oldman:

    Very true and obvious, I think - to all but the majority of Americans who have become so astonishingly myopic that I still shake my head about it.
