    Ok. Sorry that's all you got from that.

    But yeah...they're challenging the borders and have been since the tanks rolled into Crimea and Harper hit back.
    Perhaps Canada should buy some US weapons or something?

    Or are you saying we should come in for Canada?

    They're on their own. Maybe Harper should have thought about repercussions to injecting himself in Eastern European and Russian affairs.

    I didn't say that, either. Just because I don't go into a lengthy answer doesn't necessarily mean I couldn't. I choose not to at this point - have to get ready to travel. Both China and Russia have precipitated trading and currency issues themselves - much of it preceding and provoking the current situation, and you are aware of it. Ignoring such things to follow a particular view or a prescribed ideology doesn't alter that reality.

    Again, I'm sorry that's all you got out of all that documentation I provided you.

    Should nothing. It is a statement

    Again, I'm sorry you're repeating the same error time after time after time. Repeating it doesn't make it true.

    Denying the fact that US policies are pushing Russia and China together, as documented, is your error.

    Crap Monte, that's been happening for over a generation. It's not new. Where have you been hiding?

    I never have, but that is the museum I want to visit more then any other in the world.
    Monino was closed when I visited Moscow but both the aforementioned Red Army Museum and the Museum of the Great Patriotic war (WW2 to me and you) are both superb and crammed to the rafters with interesting stuff and not just Aircraft either. Moscow is a great city to visit if you are any kind of military buff at all just go.

    I already went to the SAC museum in Omaha...that was really cool too.
    USS Intrepid museum in New York is well worth a look too especially now they have one of the space shuttles there . I must be one of the few people to have seen both the Soviet Buran shuttle and the US shuttle Atlantis in Florida too.

    I've always had a soft spot for the B58 too. Its an aircraft that looks dramatic from every angle but it was so dangerous to operate that it was the only major US type not deployed to Vietnam even though it could be configured for carrying conventional ordinance
