(AFP)—A Russian warship was docked in Havana Wednesday, without explanation from Communist Cuba or its state media.

The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 boat, measuring 91.5 meters (300 feet) long and 14.5 meters wide, was docked at the port of Havana's cruise ship area, near the Russian Orthodox Cathedral.

The ship is reportedly armed with 30mm guns and anti-aircraft missiles.

Gorbachev would never have tried this with Reagan.

In fact, Brezhnev would never have tried this with CARTER!

Provoking Ivan in his neighborhood and taking out the elected government next door and putting neo-Nazis in charge there wasn’t very bright.

There’s a secret Iranian cruise missile base located on a Venezuelan peninsula jutting out into the Caribbean —maybe this has something to do with it?

Probably not, though.

Cuba would make a great stop for American cruise ships! Just think if Cuba was an American territory. No need for passports. They would use the dollar. Great source of cheap labor only 90 miles away!

I’m flabbergasted that the Satanic monster Castro allowed a Russian Orthodox Cathedral to stand in the people’s shithole Republic of Cuba. I’m sure that Harvey Weinstein and Oliver Stone would object.

I’m going to check this out.

How can you take anyone serious that uses crayons to put the markings on their ships? Look at it. The painter had too much vodka.

“Obama’s a punk.”

That’s a bigger problem than we can possibly imagine.
Because he’s a punk we, as a nation, can be easily taken advantage of. The fact that this ship made it to Havana without anyone picking up on it while it was en route is disturbing to me. How many Iranian ships have landed there to date, and, how many more are on the way?

This is a very serious situation indeed.

I see lots of radar and comms equipment. Spy ship for intercepting communications? Or a means to direct an EMP attack over the North American continent?

If the Iranians intend on military actions in the Caribbean, Vlad has need for care. The Russians have been using the Cubans to conduct military adventures in the Western Hemisphere for better than a half-century, and it appears that they are using the Iranians for the same.

Havana is home to a lot of active Roman Catholic parishes. I used to hang out around the dock area and don’t remember seeing any Russian Orthodox churches anywhere in Havana. The Russian embassy was about six blocks west of me on 1st Avanue. It’s the tallest building around. We Americans from the US Interests Section all lived in the same area. Castro’s goons were on us like Holy on the Pope but we all knew it. Everyone of our houses were bugged. We were very visible, but I can’t remember seeing any Russians out in our hood. The hierarchy of the Church in Havana were often guests at our mission diplomatic functions.

Soviet ships were known for never having the same pennant number. Pennant numbers were even changed while at sea or underway. A somewhat cheap way (at least in the past) of making tracking of ship movements difficult.

Yeah, I used to work in SIGINT for the Navy Security Group back in the 80s as a crypto-linguist. I don’t use the acronyms because too many people on FR don’t know what they mean.

Wow. Thanks for your input. The fact that you said that “Havana is home to a lot of active Roman Catholic parishes” is also surprising to me. I had the impression that the mass-murdering commie monster Che killed all Catholic priests.

“The hierarchy of the Church in Havana were often guests at our mission diplomatic functions.”

That’s good to hear.

Why isn’t Casrto dead yet? I want to see torrents of tears by Hollywood pukes so I can show up and laugh at them. I want to be present at a memorial for Castro with Sean Penn there and punch his squeaky mouse-face in.

Take care, FRiend.

Directing an EMP to its target does not require any more "mean electronic looking thingies" on top of your boat than for guiding any other bomb.
