Posted on 05/13/2014 6:56:45 AM PDT by tcrlaf
Moscow is banning Washington from using Russian-made rocket engines, which the US has used to deliver its military satellites into orbit, said Russias Deputy PM, Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of space and defense industries.
According to Rogozin, Russia is also halting the operation of all American GPS stations on its territory from June 1.
DETAILS TO FOLLOW
The next step is to ban American Astronauts from Russian Spacecraft.
In other News, Nasa's new, Obama-mandated, concentration on Muslem Outreach and Global Warming is working out well. For Russia.....
Russia’s deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin says Russia will not prolong use the International Space Station beyond 2020
MMM MMM MMM Barack Hussein Obama.........
That’s gonna leave a mark.
I am myself not familiar with “RT” as a news source.
What is this source please?
The US buying military related stuff from Russian doesn’t sound like a great idea.
Obambi is okay with this. He’s been on record wanting to reduce America’s ability to make war. He has opposed new weapons development, opposed the existence of a nuclear arsenal, and could be expected to be against a “militarization of space”.
So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?
Obama is a turd. The damage done to America is truly unimaginable.
This is a STRATEGIC move, that directly effects our ability to launch spy satellites over “trouble spots”. And they directly mention the GPS system, which is what many of our latest high-tech weapons, like drones, require for targeting.
Yeah, and he also instituted the historic "no Space Shuttle for US until Kenya and Botswana also have a Space Shuttle" policy.
Russia Today. Russian broadcasting in English.
Translation: Waiting until the 2016 Presidential elections.
All part of the plan. Obama wanted geopolitical parity and now he’s getting it. I’m guessing he has a WWI fetish.
Obama: That’s okay! We don’t need to go into space anymore anyway! Space is racist!
This is either Russian propaganda, or it’s not.
We shall see.
Pawn takes rook. Your move Obama.
Boy, you just knew that the world would be totally in love with us with a Nobel peace prize winner as pres(id)ent.
Interfax cites Russia deputy PM Rogozin as saying Russia will not meet US request to extend ISS operations past 2020.
You think our media is going to say anything that reflects badly on their King?
Russian state-owned media.
Obama Killed NASA shuttle program with no replacement in the near future!
~So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?~
These are more efficient and reliable but I think it won’t take long to replace with American technology.
As for GPS it is huge. It would reduce an accuracy of the system beyond required for military use.
That was an honest question, and I will give a 100% honest answer.
I do not trust our media, and I likewise do not trust Russia’s media.
They are both propaganda elements, of their respective governments.
It is really sad, but we can not trust anyone it seems.
I would however like to see another source for this news, before I decide about this news.
Good. We need our own way to space so the Russians can go F#ck themselves.
Barack the Destroyer.
IMO, Russia is preparing for a full-blown economic war against the United States and Europe.
They know Europe is vunerable, Obama and the Minions are incompetent, and that we can’t support Europe forever. The gas/oil deal with China to be signed next week gives Russia TONS of breathing room from sanctions.
News Headlines frommthe last 24 hours:
-Russia Will Cut All Gas Supplies to Ukraine On June 3rd, If No Payment Made
-Russia bans police, emergency and military employees from traveling abroad
Yeah, but you can safely say that RT reflects the position of its boss, Putin.
Another headline that backs up my suspicion about Economic War.
-Russias third largest bank moves money from Europe to Moscow for safe keeping
Gazprombank transferred client funds from Belgium and Luxembourg back to home turf, to protect against any future sanctions.
The securities were moved from Euroclear Bank (Brussels) and Clearstream Banking (Luxembourg) to the Russian Central Depository at the end of April.
The move is intended to protect customers from any forthcoming sanctions and prevent a situation where clients funds are frozen, the statement on the website said.
The transfer was done to prevent possible restrictions on transactions of customers assets that are kept in international deposits and settlement systems, it stated. In preparation for sanctions, in March, the bank moved nearly $7 billion to Russias Central Bank for safe keeping.

“Pawn takes rook. Your move Obama.”
Obama is still playing Checkers....
We have front row seats to the collapse of the greatest nation the world has ever known.
If the Russians and Chinese suppliers cut off our military equipment, the USA will have to surrender. That’s what happens when pacifist Democrats and globalist Republicans screw around with the country’s defense. We are doomed.
Obama is still playing Tiddly-Winks.
The same reason that we shut down the Shuttle program and are now paying the Russians to send OUR astronauts up - Agenda 21.
Agenda 21- put thousands of Americans out of work and send billions of $$ to other countries = the A21 goal of re-distribution of wealth.
Shut down the American fishing industry, import over 90% of our seafood, export over $12 billion in the trade deficit.
Put the American cattleman out of business, import meat.
Shut down or severely restrict domestic energy production.
(they are getting ready to close off another 165 million acres to protect the Sage Grouse http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/West-sage-grouse-endangered-BLM/2014/05/12/id/570777/
And NAFTA is part of it also. Read the Preamble.
Vlad has taken full measure of the man
Vlad is a good strategist. He knows a jug eared loser f____t when he sees one. Obamas rap fools stooopid Americans but not world leaders who came up the hard way. They see him as a 5 year old throwing a tantrum in the sandbox
Along with all of Western Civilization...Although ironically, the Russians may wind up saving it in the end.
From being a super power to a super joke. Well the left got what they wanted by electing this dud.
It doesn’t have to be a collapse but we do have to ride out the rest of the damage this administration does.
“We have front row seats to the collapse of the greatest nation the world has ever known.”
Our children and grandchildren are going to curse us in eternity for it.
We were “too busy” to get involved politically in stopping it.
Obama: he cares about Libya (Quaddafi was on his way to nationalizing all oil reserves) and Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood!)
An alternative to U.S. Obama-owned media.
"Нравится вам или нет, но история на нашей стороне. Мы вас закопаем" ("Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you.")
Or as I like to say “KGB Colonel vs community organizer” Who do you think is going to win that one?
