In other News, Nasa's new, Obama-mandated, concentration on Muslem Outreach and Global Warming is working out well. For Russia.....
Russia’s deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin says Russia will not prolong use the International Space Station beyond 2020
MMM MMM MMM Barack Hussein Obama.........
That’s gonna leave a mark.
I am myself not familiar with “RT” as a news source.
What is this source please?
The US buying military related stuff from Russian doesn’t sound like a great idea.
Obambi is okay with this. He’s been on record wanting to reduce America’s ability to make war. He has opposed new weapons development, opposed the existence of a nuclear arsenal, and could be expected to be against a “militarization of space”.
So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?
Obama is a turd. The damage done to America is truly unimaginable.
This is a STRATEGIC move, that directly effects our ability to launch spy satellites over “trouble spots”. And they directly mention the GPS system, which is what many of our latest high-tech weapons, like drones, require for targeting.
Yeah, and he also instituted the historic "no Space Shuttle for US until Kenya and Botswana also have a Space Shuttle" policy.
Russia Today. Russian broadcasting in English.
Translation: Waiting until the 2016 Presidential elections.
All part of the plan. Obama wanted geopolitical parity and now he’s getting it. I’m guessing he has a WWI fetish.
Obama: That’s okay! We don’t need to go into space anymore anyway! Space is racist!
This is either Russian propaganda, or it’s not.
We shall see.
Pawn takes rook. Your move Obama.
Boy, you just knew that the world would be totally in love with us with a Nobel peace prize winner as pres(id)ent.
Interfax cites Russia deputy PM Rogozin as saying Russia will not meet US request to extend ISS operations past 2020.
You think our media is going to say anything that reflects badly on their King?
