Well, Duh!
For anyone who expected anything less than that--it is time to get out of a bubble of fluffy rhetoric and pompous statements and get down to reality.  I hate to say " I told you so ", but from the get go it was clear no matter what Israel does now, Russia h...

Some Fast Thoughts On IL-20.
And so it starts. Russia
must attack Israel, no—she must obliterate it, Putin is "soft", the
world is coming to an end, Zionists are in control of Kremlin, Russia turns
another cheek. And on, and on, and on. The chorus of noble warriors with the
evils of Zi...

Russia Loses Recce IL-20 In Syria...
Launches of the missiles from French Frigate Auvergne (FREMM-class) are detected while four IAF F-16 attacked Syria. These are red line news in Russia now (in Russian) and French better pray that it is just a coincidence. It is a fog of war now but if Auver...

Mark Galeotti Is Hurting.
Can we just agree that professional
auto mechanics do not make good gynecologists, nor stock brokers are known for
making good commercial airlines pilots, nor, in the end, most of heart surgeons

Why Bellingcat Is A Collection Of Amateurs, Just Like STRATFOR.
OK, we heard this story about those scary GRU "killers" such as their latest batch of Boshirov and Petrov and I don't really want to discuss an utter professional inadequacy of British "special" services who today are only good at killing own citizens and s...

That's The Knife...I mean The Parade.
Remember this?  Well, that's THE Parade. The conclusion of Vostok 2018 maneuvers: Russia, China, Mongolia. More than 300, 000 troops from Russia's Far Eastern Military District, PLAN and Mongolian Army.   The message is clear and requires no additional elab...

Another Piece Of The Puzzle.
