That missile might as well be a middle finger extending upward from the KGB Colonel’s clenched fist.

LOL! Meanwhile, they’re having Senate hearings on approving the appointment of a “disarmament adviser” (some raving leftist loony female friend of Obama).

Talk about not living in the real world.

You do realize, don’t you kitty, that your tired snot is quite often the only pro-Putin comment on the threads where you post it?

Please give it a rest. It just gets in the way and doesn’t add a damn thing to the intelligence on the thread.

Is there any proof within the Russian leadership itself, more than just circumstantial, that Putin timed this Ukraine thing after hosting the Olympics for maximum international leeway?

Too much of that, and Vlad-boy might be inciting a “coup” in the USA which won’t go the way he wishes. Pride continues to go before destruction. (It could be worse, though. In the old cold war days they once shot off a whole bunch of ICBMs that represented salvos on US cities, except shifted in longitude so they actually fell in the ocean.)

As a matter of fact, Svoboda (6 ministers in the new Kiev regime) and its foot soldier Right Sector are neo-Nazis.

That’s what Nazi symbols, “Kill the Yid” tshirts, straight-arm salutes and torchlight night parades mean.

The Russian-backed regime, or the one Russia is forcing out?

It’s weird because Russia had no love lost of the Nazis.

Comparing the two pictures it looks like the model makers shorted you the cute little fire extinguishers *and* an axle.

19:51:BREAKING NEWS The Russian military says it has launched a Topol RS-12M missile from its Kapustin Yar test range near the Caspian Sea to the Sary Shagan range in Kazakhstan.
