Israel knows Russia is weak, I doubt Iraq, Saudia Arabia etc are too worried. Chinese ..I could give a sht. Africa..I could give a sht..Australia .....etc..

I am wondering if the Russian destroyer went down, what percentage of their entire surface combat navy that would be ?

Thanks but it's not until August! We just launched a new platform in the last 2 weeks in our healthcare company and I'm working on my new hobby, as well. It's been kinda crazy!

How are you doing?

Thanks for asking!
Been well; except for my little best buddy dog of 14 years being diagnosed with melanoma. We're are in the last stages and this guy has been the best friend ever. He sits with me all day while working and I'm not quite sure how I will get along without my pal.
I guess its part of life but when loves so much, it hurts more.

Bill, I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope he's comfortable and you are getting to enjoy each other as much as possible. Our little guy is getting up in age as well and slowing down. It's sad but it makes us appreciate him more.

Good luck to you and your buddy.

Cheers-mk

Silly me thought that was Putin providing Trump with Hillary's emails like two wealthy guys sharing a jar of Grey Poupon.

I would like to see overhead video actually. I saw both still pictures, the one with the starboard turning wake of the Udaloy and the one where they are both going straight.

Per international "rules of the road" the Tico should have given the Udaloy right of way so I'm on the fence about this one.

I obviously don't know the whole story and there is an exception to this right of way rule if the Tico was doing flight operations, which they appear to have been. I just hope everyone didn't start shouting "those Russians!" too soon or we will have been caught with our pants down.

Yes, an overhead view would better illustrate the course of both vessels. Was the Russian ship the aggressor or just holding its course? It was not too difficult to see what the Russian fighter was doing in Alaska. At what point do the servicemen respond accordingly?

Really? The guy that says Russia didn't influence our election process (and still is) all the while our intelligence tells him otherwise. That is an incredibly dangerous thing to us, the US, and democracy.

All I was meaning is that he is a wild card and he doesn’t even know what he will do minute to minute. Putin is one insult from being bros with Trump to mortal enemies like anyone else.

You’re right.
The US Destroyer was conducting flight ops and would be flying a flag indicating that she would be maintaining course and speed and other vessels should alter course in case of CBDR( collusion imminent). Also, the US ship would be trying to communicate with the Russians via civilian bridge to bridge radio net which all warships monitor 24/7.

I never said any of those themes anywhere nor will I ever. Putin is doing the reverse of this though in Russia to help him maintain his image/control over you and your fellow Russians. He is trying very very hard to get a bunch of your fellow countryman killed in one of these stunts. Have you ever asked for what?

I/we do freely here in the US of our military and leaders all the time.

And yes, Putin is not a nice guy to say the least. That should be pretty obvious to any critical thinking person at this point.
