    Just wish we Europeans were more united with the States on this. I really hope there are more than just the one French warship out there with the Americans.
    I second this.

    Do not worry. Fallen may come and offer alternative explanations to these military movements also. He may come saying "These 60 ships were always there and are just going home. They have to stay there until they get refueled" or so .

    Then Thriller could second that and would tell us that the dolphins that he telepathically speaks in the Black Sea have long known the steps of Obama and have put the ships prior to Crimea's invasion. Putin communicates to both aliens and Gods according to him and would explain the extreme intelligence to call on 60 ships being there just in case prior to Crimea and these allied movements.

    Ironic too. For you see invading other countries is against international law also.

    Heya HB.....I am willing to bet that Putin knows about that weakness.

    Ever since Russian armed forces invaded and annexed the Ukrainian province of Crimea last month, the U.S. government has struggled to find an appropriate response. Trade sanctions and visa freezes on Russian government officials could punish Russia for what it's done in Crimea. But what could the U.S. do to deter further aggression?

    This week, it appears the Obama administration hit upon its solution. It took the USS Donald Cook and sent it to Russia. Armed with new Standard Missile-3 IB weaponry from Raytheon (NYSE: RTN ) , the Cook boasts a robust version of Lockheed Martin's (NYSE: LMT ) Aegis ballistic missile defense system capable of shooting down supersonic, high-trajectory missiles such as Russia uses to carry its nuclear warheads. The warship was modified for ballistic missile defense (BMD) duty as part of a $22 billion project to build shipborne and land-based missile defense stations to protect Europe from Iranian long-range missiles. But just as President Putin predicted, it appears to have use in countering Russian threats as well.



    Departing its new base in Spain, the Cook is now en route to the Black Sea, where it will "show the flag" off the Ukrainian and Russian coasts -- a concrete demonstration to President Putin of how aggression in Crimea could bring about the very thing he fears: U.S. ballistic missile defenses set up right next to the Russian border.

    What this move does show us, though, is that the $22 billion ballistic missile defense system has wider application than it was initially planned for. It can help to contain the threat of a future Iranian nuclear missile and it can help to disarm Russia's nuclear arsenal as well.....snip~

    America Sends Missile-Destroying Warship Into Russian Waters. President Putin Presumably Not Pleased.


    Our ship arrived there yesterday. Now it will sit off the Coast of the Ukraine. Think we have Putin's attention now? What say ye?
    We were to have a missle base in poland but one of the first things the chump in chief did was cancel it. He did the same to our missle base in AK, and then resumed construction after North Korea got bold with him.

    Weakness, does not indicate strength. I dont think Obama knows this.

    Heya USC. I hear what you are saying.....and while it has come late. This was the type of move that should have been made from the beginning.

    I agree, but at the same time this is nothing definitive. And as the hours go by its looking like Russia may be about to invade Ukraine yet again. In the end, Putin knows Obama isn't going to do anything.

    Well if he is going to do it.....he better do it before Biden gets there. Not while Biden is there. Otherwise we will be hearing from the War Hawks on the matter. Not to mention.....Obama gave Putin another warning. How many does this make so far?
