MOSCOW A Russian warship carrying "special cargo" will be dispatched toward Syria, a navy source said on Friday, as the Kremlin beefs up its presence in the region ahead of possible US strikes against the Damascus regime.
The large landing ship Nikolai Filchenkov will on Friday leave the Ukrainian port city of Sevastopol for the Russian Black Sea port of Novorossiisk, from where it will head to Syria's coast, the Interfax news agency quoted a source from the Saint Petersburg-based central naval command as saying.
"The ship will make call in Novorossiisk, where it will take on board special cargo and set off for the designated area of its combat duty in the eastern Mediterranean," the source said.
The source did not specify the nature of the cargo.

Now there’s a ship that needs to hit an advanced Chinese naval mine.
Either Obama blinks, or he starts WWIII.
I expect him to find a way to blink while pretending that he didn’t.
Special cargo. Dash cam, super size.
Is that the one that can light up our stealth technology?
No. THe stealth one is the S400 Triumf
I think it’s claiming it can kill ballistic, cruise, and stealth. If so, and if that’s what they’re bringing to the party, then they are serious.
While Putin probably want’s everybody to think there’s something particularly big and bad aboard, it’s probably just a boat load of popcorn to resupply dwindling stocks. While he’s at it, it’d help if he would send a boat load to the U.S. as well.
“MOSCOW A Russian warship carrying “special cargo” will be dispatched toward Syria, a navy source said on Friday, as the Kremlin beefs up its presence in the region ahead of possible US strikes against the Damascus regime.”
I guess it isn’t bacon?
Obama is an idiot. This whole thing is retarded.
Not good. Not good at all. Too many ships in the Med from multiple countries watching the Syrian civil war makes for itchy trigger fingers. Unintended actions could start WWIII.
From an anti American perspective he really can’t go wrong here. Either he starts a serious conflict by assisting known terrorists, getting American kids killed and spending a lot of money and equipment our military really doesn’t have OR he blinks and our prestige is wrecked in the world’s eyes.
I haven’t felt like this since I was a kid in the 80’s when we worried about Russia 24/7.
Thanks; thought it might be.
Two movie clips come to mind:
This business will get out of control..
If he fires one, I’ll fire one.
Excellent clips. Very appropriate.
I bet you’re right.
Thank you American voters for giving us BHO. Here’s hoping the planet doesn’t heat up for ya too much in the near future and you get that free birth control, although you may not need it.
My spider sense is on high alert also....
I remember the “duck and cover” drills in the mid ‘60s...
