I can't help, but look at some of these and think of The great inventor Wile E. Coyote.

Better than some of the so call works of art I've see standing in front of many public buildings!

What?!

King Zero hasn't sent cruise missiles, smart bombs, and drones to his Syrian MB "rebel" brothers?

Or is Rooters (for Obama) just trying to cover for their selected boy-king wannabe?

I have decided that the only criteria for selecting “works of art” in publicly owned buildings is that everyone in the selection process has to hate it. At Middle Tennessee State University they had this horrible “sculpture” that consisted of several pieces of channel steel of various sizes welded to another piece of steel.

I know somebody has about 200 missiles they stole from Obama & Hillary in Benghazi.

ATTORNEY FOR WHISTLEBLOWER: 400 U.S. MISSILES STOLEN IN BENGHAZI

On August 4, Breitbart News covered a report in The Telegraph that said 35 CIA operatives were working in Benghazi when the attack against the consulate took place. The Telegraph claimed these operatives were allegedly in an "annex near the consulate [working] on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armories to Syrian Rebels."

Laugh all you want, but these people will do what ever it takes to win a war.

They defeated the Soviet Union, it’s a stalemate in Ashghanastan (due to our unwillingness to destroy the enemy).

These people are ruthless and understand war is an ugly business, we want to fight it as if there are laws in warfare.

With todays policies, we couldn’t win a simple street fight where there are no rules.

Sad....I'm all for poking fun at these 7th Century cave dwellers but will to win can be just as important as weaponry.

Currently the only Russian ship at their base in Tartus, Syria is the Amur-class floating workshop (similar to a US Navy destroyer tender) PM-138, which is stationed there to support the ships currently assigned to the Med.
Right now there are two destroyers, three medium-sized amphibs, seven support ships, and an unknown number of submarines operating in the area. If things start to get really troublesome, they might deploy their Black Sea Fleet, which has two cruisers, one destroyer, two frigates, and thirteen corvettes. A number of these ships are armed with the SS-N-22 Sunburn ramjet anti-ship missile. A wave-hugger with a speed in excess of Mach-3, this missile was designed to cripple US carriers and kill just about anything else.

If you can’t even piss on their corpse you certainly can’t eliminate them.

They probably used the launcher shown in comment #18.
