What the heck is wrong with those Russians
Are they nuts?
Pootie needs a spankie.
Russians can't be trusted - they will take handouts and stab America in the back at the same time.
I can't believe Russia would do this.
well....we should just go ahead and take on Iran now
before it gets any tougher .
Get it over with .
Let's do it
Personally I think we should quietly take out their submarines in deep water. Leave no time for any reports back home. They simply disappear never to be heard from again. Old Russian subs and all...
Gore Alleged to Have Violated Law He Authored
Senate to Probe Vice President's
Secret Deals on Russian Arms to Iran
On Wednesday, October 25, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations will begin hearings to probe recent press reports that Vice President Al Gore and then Russian Prime Minister Victor Chernomyrdin made a secret agreement five years ago in which the Vice President promised that the Clinton Administration would not enforce a U.S. law requiring sanctions for Russian weapons sales to Iran.
The law referenced above is the 1992 Iran-Iraq Non-Proliferation Act (P.L. 102-484), sponsored by then Senator Al Gore, along with Senator John McCain. This law requires the President to impose sanctions on countries that sell advanced weaponry or assist in nuclear weapons programs in countries sponsoring terrorism. Russian cooperation with Iran's nuclear program was a major concern behind enactment of that legislation.
Russia = friends of the terrorists
Russian KILO-class diesel submarine
CLUB (KLUB, KLAB) [SS-NX-27]
The Club system is a family of anti-ship, anti-submarine and land attack missiles with variants for delivery from surface ships and submarines. The version intended for the Russian Navy is reportedly designated Kalibr. Designed by OKB Novator in Yekaterinburg, the Club system was publicly displayed at the Ural Expo-2000. The Club system design is based on technology from Novator's earlier 3M10/RK-55 Granat [NATO designation SS-N-21 'Sampson'] cruise missile and RPK-2 Vyuga [NATO designation SS-N-15] ASW missile. The direct predecessor of the 3M54E cruise missile (the anti-ship component of the Club system), the 3M51 Alfa, was first displayed in 1993 at arms conventions in Abu-Dhabi and Zhukovskiy (MAKS-93).
As of April 2002 India was the only customer of the Club system, which is being installed on the Indian Navy's Russian-built frigates and submarines. China and Iran have also expressed interest in purchasing the Club system as part of potential upgrade programs for their Russian-built submarines.
The term "iranian bubbleheads" comes to mind...
But then again I was always fond of keeping my head above water while we were on deployment anyway...
Those subs look like targets to me though...
These subs are not all they are cracked up to be...They can be dealt with very quickly and efficiently
Those "missles" may be capable, but they are not in capable hands to be a "real" threat...
Echhh, but whata I know??? Right??? hehehe
Thanks a lot, Russia.
The US will likely equip them with improvised water intakes.
And, if they don't sink on their own, we can help.
this is gonna come back and bite Russia in the fanny
Russia is an enemy of the US, straight and simple. It's too bad that no one in the State Department has the 'nads to call it like it is.
Russia needs a good ass kicking.
