  1. Kerch strait has also reportedly been closed to traffic, ostensibly due to an 'exercise'.
  2. I'm not so sure. There was the war scare in the 30s when it looked possible the US would go to war with the British Empire, apparently to get US access to dominion markets to help the US recover from the great recession. That they were working on War Plan Red as early as 1927, the year after the Wall Street Crash, tells it's own story. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Plan_Red So you are left with a possible war for economic advantage, probably defended in the language of an anti imperial struggle.Ok, so it never happened, but there was a clear intent to break the status quo.

  10. This was interesting, the E4B is the 'Doomsday' plane. Presumably over here to support the US Secretary of Defense as he visits NATO. I guess somebody is taking it seriously.
  11. I cant believe the yanks have actually been bullied into staying out the Black Sea. Thats completely contrary to what freedom of navigation patrols are all about.
  12. Yeah, those pesky Cossacks might take Moscow this time.
  13. Russians reportedly painting invasion stripes on their vehicles. Russia's tanks painted with 'invasion stripes' as 100,000 soldiers mass at European border (msn.com)
  14. We have discussed this in a few threads before, and this chap seems to have a new book out based on the British Archives on how to do it. http://ww2podcast.com/ww2-podcast/140-how-to-kill-a-panther-tank/
