    I'd love to go there myself and deal with those pirates too.
    Unfortunately that cowardly lot of scum will be in hiding, I'm sure.
    At least the Russians should enjoy some warmer weather.

    Actually, maybe it would be better if there were a joint Russian-American exercise; a few drinking parties, a few soccer games, football, basketball, baseball, a few dances, some limbo with the island girlies, exchanges of hats and shirts and night vision goggles.

    Talk about detaunt.

    I'm not surprised that Russia is sending a ship or two towards Somalia, who's pirates recently took control of a Ukrainian ship with many T72's + spares aboard.

    As for Red exercises in Hugo's play-ground, who honestly cares.
    Every major power needs a few lap dogs to play with, Hugo is Russia's lap dog...a very old story...ref your world history books.

    No. Hugo is Russia's client. He just got a one billion dollar credit for military purchases.

    You know, just like those other banana republics that buy from the US.

    Unless you're sayin' that there are only two kinds of countries on this planet:

    World Powers or Lap Dogs?

    Exactly, his one mad little Indian in one small little country trying his best, although rather limited in his abilities to right some social injustices, real or just perceived.

    He goes to extremes to get some attention but most of the South American government leaders are letting him know when he goes overboard.

    He is no great threat to anyone.
