The pic of a Russian soldier with his finger on the trigger of a belt-fed machine gun is a million laughs.

RT has exceeded itself with its propaganda. The latest is that the Ukrainians are neo-nazis who fight with the Chechens and that they will soon have nuclear weapons, blah, blah

The third photo is pretty compelling. Little does the boy know that Crimea might be a war zone in a few hours.

If we see this on a sign:

импичмент Обамы

it means: impeach Obama

(at least according to Google translate)

Why would the Russians want to impeach Obama? He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

Agree with your premise, I just thought it would be snarky fun for somebody to display that in a pic seen around the world.

Some are Neo Nazis including the Chief Prosecutor. Some have fought with the Chechens including one of the instigators Aleksandr Muzychko who is also a Nazi.

Going Nuclear...probably propaganda but not without the realm of possibility.

My first thought. Maybe there is a use for homosexuals in the military so they won't be distracted by the hot Ukrainian camauflage... other than her faaaaabulous boots.

Yes. Reminds me of common Asspress and Yahoo slop about the Obama’s with people throwing flowers and admiring Moochelle’s hips and gowns.

Far right,.. let’s see, the UN said Putin must withdraw Saturday evening DC time, and Nato said Putin must withdraw Sunday afternoon DC time, David Gregory on Meet the de-Press-ed, was jumping out of his seat excoriating Jon F’n Kerry for doing nothing, Fareed “whatever his name is” on CNN Denounced Putins aggression....All leftist or self described left of center leaning. So how it that the Far Right?

Those bullets in that machine gun sure look like soft points.

Aren't they illegal under the Geneva Conventions?
