    Vladimir Putin stations Russian warships off Australia's coast ahead of G20

    Vladimir Putin stations Russian warships off Australia's coast ahead of G20
    Nov 14, 2014

    Vladimir Putin is underlining his presence at a major summit of world leaders in Australia by stationing warships in waters off the country's northeastern coast, prompting the Australian prime minister to angrily accuse Russia of trying to reclaim the "lost glories" of the Soviet Union. In recent days, four Russian warships have entered international waters off the northeast Australian coast to coincide with Putin's visit to Australia for the summit that brings together the leaders of the world's 20 biggest industrialized and developing economies. Australia, in turn, sent three warships of its own to monitor them.

    Obama out showed Putin when the Obama's went on their African vacation with a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier and an entire carrier air wing with FA-18 Super Hornets. That's class.

    Are you saying if something happens to the president whilst in Africa he should go unprotected to a local hospital?

    Obama should use the same hospital that G.W. Bush or Bill Clinton would have used when they visited Africa without a freaking aircraft carrier, a carrier air wing, 56 vehicles, and over a hundred Secret Service agents looking for prostitutes.

    Come on, we are talking about Obama, the the worst President in the past hundred years.

    But the Ruskies have submarines that our Navy can't find. And our carriers are scared of the Ruskies Slava class cruisers.

    Nato made a mistake, when it did not sink his fleet in Georgia, when it would have been safe. Putin learned and is upping the ante.

    I believe that if WWIII ever happens we'll kill more Russkis than they'll kill Americans.

    Lets wait and see how it turns out.

    Kruschchev backed down over Cuba, that should tell you something.

    The USA was prepared to obliterate the USSR.

    I was 5 k's from the Czech border ready to go to war at that time.

    I remember it like it was yesterday.

    Y'know, I can't find any information about the cost of Bush's visit, or details about how Clinton traveled (although his cost 48,000,000 in 1998, which is 61,000,000 in today's dollars). It seems the press was more interested in the actual diplomacy than what they were taking with them when they travel.

    If the USA can station troops,ships and planes all over this planet (And it does.), I guess that Russia can send a few ships to international waters off Australia, eh?

    Who's going to stop them?
