So I heard Russia, Iran, Syria, and China try their own hand at making an 80’s movies… erm.. wait, that’s not quite right : http://www.timesofisrael.com/iranian-news-agency-reports-joint-syria-iran-russia-and-china-wargames/
What they’re trying to do is a real war-games, with their militaries being involed in joint manuvers. This to me is Russia trying to put its hand in the world powers ‘cookie jar’ once again (I mean, c’mon, USSR and Russia is basically interchangable). After the USSR crumbled and those posers were shown the business end of America’s foot up their ass, Russia has always been at least second fiddle to the US. Well, they were when they were the USSR too, but now with China taking over the #2 position in the world, Russia is trying to go along for the ride. Why do I say that Russia is the smarter USSR? Because this right here is Russia knowing that if they’d go one-on-one with us they’d be crushed, but a joint union with China, and to a lesser extent Iran and Syria, they’re now in a better position to show their hand and have some say in the world affairs. Do I really think much will come out of this… no, not really, but it still is a cause of conecrn. We’ve mobilized some forces to The Gulf, so I’m hoping that’s just a show of strength rather than something to come.
Maybe something good will come out of this… Sly Stallone can make another movie and beat the shit out of some guy from Russia (Putin?) who’s using steroids while he trains in the snow carrying wood and running up mountains.
