Re: Russia to hold major test of its strategic missile forces

I know the narrative says this was announced last year but the particulars of October drills are always open to change ...it appears to be focused on the Arctic and northern borders... I'm sure Norway and Finland are very happy to have such a pleasant neighbour.

Re: Syria Arab Army and Kurd cooperation

The @nytimes reports that the US is finally "reviewing plans" to flush the WS3 nuclear weapons storage vault at Incirlik Air Base in #Turkey. The B61 nuclear gravity bombs are still there. https://t.co/Hga2eMrAFR I'd like some follow-up on this. This is the danger of your nuclear weapons being clos...

Well, my question was answered. What a messed up situation!
Most decisions leading to situations such as these are simulated and probable effects known well before hand... The outcomes in the upcoming days/weeks/months will be indicative of what is happening and why.

Re: Possible Russian special operation in Norway

Svalbard, being a part of Norway, is NATO territory. (Although Russia does have a small outpost on the opposite end of the Island from the main town Longyearbyen) If Russia tried to procure Svalbard, article 5 would no doubt be invoked. The laws on Svalbard forbids anyone from dying, so there certa...

Re: Possible Russian special operation in Norway

Svalbard being an island with huge tactical value. In a similar vein to Crimea...I do not believe it is a premature evaluation in suggesting Russia will attempt to procure this land mass in the very near future...something is happening here, the Norwegians suggested this threat about this time last ...

Re: Russia threatens Kyiv with war if Ukrainian ships attempt to pass through the Kerch Strait

Not much muscle if it's in the West Atlantic instead of the Med. Will pass the straights of Gibraltar and be in Spanish waters by Monday. Pretty sure the "Ferrying" distance for the Super Hornets is over 3,000KM... a couple of airfields in Ukraine where they can land to refuel so about 100 jets wit...
