  1. I don’t understand the strategy here. Can someone explain it?

    To me i’d think you’re risking a lot because if things escalate these are two countries that have mutually assured destruction no? What does Russia gain with this for such a risk?

  2. “Other navy’s ship or aircraft acted kinda rude and boisterous, please send more money!”

    This happens like 1000 times a year.

  3. Time for Trump to check with us boss about where can US navy operate

  4. Russia don’t want this smoke.

  5. Very common behavior in the militaries, especially in the Navy and Air Force. If the ships or planes collide, it’s simply attributed to human error even though the behavior is deliberate.

    There’s been several USN submarines come back from patrol with huge dents in their bows. That didn’t happen from ramming Wally the Whale!

    The US government retrieved a section of a Russian submarine that sunk in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Even the Russians had no idea where to find it, but the Americans did! Someone blinked and the Russian sub got sunk without the benefit of Amatol.

    It’s a rough world out there. The idea is to shake your opponents confidence in peacetime so you’ve got some marginal advantage in wartime.

  6. Yet more proof that trump is Putin’s bitch.

  7. Did the ship then stall and catch fire? Im amazed we use russian rockets and they work, do we completely rebuild them? Their planes are like the 737 max.

  8. Insert Jojo meme, “Your approaching me?”

  9. The game of chicken, hoping the other will blink (or make a mistake and cause an incident) happens all the time.
