"s/b to build a Navy base in Cyprus."

This seems to be a popular viewpoint, but what would they base there? At one of the last exercises in the Black Sea most of the ships couldn't even get out of port! I could understand this if they were shipbuilding at a phenomenal rate, trying to make a comeback in the world, etc.,, but their armed forces are but a shadow of their former selves.
