Russia has unveiled its new  Pantsir-ME,  a ship-borne version of the Pantsir-S  missile system  which could be installed on Russia’s next generation warships.

The semi-autonomous,  smart system can operate in foul weather,  firing missiles with independently targeted warheads which explode,  destroying their target with a “cloud” of razor-sharp steel rods.

Meanwhile,  thanks to His Oneness and the Democrats,  our own military is plagued by aging equipment,  plus  over a billion  dollars of items which have mysteriously gone missing.

I could go on forever about the Russia nothing-burger that so absorbs the media and the Democrats, but this digitally  altered cartoon  from TerrellAftermath sums up my feelings on the subject perfectly.

How humiliating….

How embarrassing must it be that your  spy ship  has collided with another nation’s livestock transport vessel and then sinks?   And the Turkish coast guard has  to rescue  the Russian sailors from their sinking ship?

Do you worry that your military and intelligence services are  falling down on the job?

Russia goes whole hog…

At least one sector of the Russian economy is doing well.   Since Putin has instituted a ban on the importation of pork,  hog farming   has exploded to such a point that pork is being exported.

Capitalism works when it’s allowed to,  even in Russia,  that bastion of bully communism,  though I can’t imagine why Putin imagines any nation in the West would have the balls to cut off Russia’s food supply.

Who knew the State Department possessed  a sense  of humor?   Too bad they are led by a second political hack in the Obama Administration…

Russia harassing Poland…

Thousands of Polish soldiers have been receiving  strange calls  from a Russian phone number.   It’s worrying,  because Poland is definitely a target of Russia,  but given Russia’s actions in the Ukraine,  this can scarcely be surprisin

Our lying leader…

His Oneness claims the GOP is  more dangerous  to the USA than Russia or China.   If you want to know why his foreign policy is so screwed up and why he has no strategy for much of anything in the field of foreign endeavors before telephone calls and speeches,  that should help explain it.
