It has been coming together fast since Paul and those many years before him prophesied. I remember in the 80’s those who thought Gorbachev was the Anti-Christ because of the mark on his forehead and his leadership of the Soviet Union, America’s foremost enemy at the time. Won’t be long now!
Back in the 1980’s, the IDF found tunnels in Lebanon dug by the Russians.
They also found documents, plans, supplies for a full scale invasion of teh middle east by Russia.
One object of note that the IDF found: Coffee beans.
Fresh coffee beans.
Coffee beans go bad within three months.
That meant that the Russians had plans to begin their operation at least within three months.
The Israelis going into Lebanon to kick the PLO in the butt derailed that plan.
I’d say Gaza is their backup plan.
Say, do you ever say anything about any articles you post?

Thanks for posting this regardless of others questioning why you didn’t comment.
I’d have missed it otherwise.
Yep. It’s pretty disconcerting.
Civilian rescue ship, lolz
Unless they sent a cruise ship defended by the flotilla this was a military mission

I saw her in Sevastopol a couple of years ago. Looking shabby. The Russian Black Sea Fleet is in pretty tough shape. Some of their smaller auxilieries look all right but most of the bigger stuff is laid up. Just not enough money for the required maintenance.
I do believe the Russian Navy mixed it up with the Turkish fleet in the pre-dreadnought days and did very well. Outside of that...
Apparently there is also a MOSKVA CLASS helo-carrying cruisers. Sending one of those might make some sense for rescue, maybe the reporter is just stupid?
Looks high-tech and futuristic to me.... *cough*
