The election is in November right?
The president (Obama) still is Commander in Chief until Janurary 20th. Literally, a LOT can happen within 99 days. He still has full power of the military until the next president takes the oath of office.

Merry Christmas to those that do not understand how the president is elected. https://www.usa.gov/election#item-211441
Thanks for clarifying. :)

I am not sure how to respond to that. Hey, I am not American yet I was the one who suggested that Putin had three months rather than one month (i.e. January). So maybe I don't have a right to be making comments or asking questions solely because I am interested in what is happening to our friends south of the 49th parallel. I was really enjoying this website. Perhaps not so much now.

Apologies that it is not in English but according to Google Translate:
"Russia completed the delivery to Iran of missile systems S-300"

Russia has completed the execution of the contract for the supply of anti-aircraft missile systems S-300 to Iran, RIA Novosti learned in the course of the exhibition of arms ArmHiTec-2016 Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin.

This is a bit of a concern if this is coming directly from Russia itself.

By the way, I wasn't sure if this was Sit.Rep. worthy, but if it isn't please move it.

I'd call that noteworthy, if anything.

Was this common during the first Cold War? I can't deny that were not in a new one anymore, we have been for s long time. I don't know how we've gotten this low though...

And according to CNN this isn't even a Cold War, it's something esle all together. I'd say it IS a Cold War but just more intense than last time.
I don't know.
Sorry for going off topic.

The West and the public better get it into their heads that Russia is psyching up its citizenry for war.

Your thoughts on the geopolitical atmosphere right now Tom?
