Next President of the United Fates of America

Quote:Hillary REALLY will use NUKEs FIRST

That is probably true, and Putin knows that,
which is one reason he would rather deal with Trump.

The Russians have their fleet closing in on Syria.
A good chance that they will make their big move on Aleppo as this election here approaches.
A message from Putin.
He had better hope that his Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier doesn't break down,
run out of fuel Lol

It will be interesting to see Trump deal with Putin,
because at some point Putin has to let Trump {as president} know who's in charge,
and Trump isn't going to like that.
Russian warships, likely headed to Syria, withdraw refueling request in Spain

Quote:Russia has withdrawn a request for a flotilla of warships, 
including its flagship aircraft carrier the Admiral Kuznetsov, 
to refuel in the Spanish port of Ceuta 
as the ships head toward Syria, Spain's foreign affairs ministry said Wednesday.

In a statement, the Spanish ministry said it asked the Russian Embassy in Madrid 
to clarify reports that the flotilla might participate 
in the military operation against the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.

"The Spanish government follows with deep concern the airstrikes against Aleppo 
and the humanitarian tragedy there," the statement said. 
"Spain has requested in different occasions a ceasefire to allow humanitarian aid (into the city)."

The Russian embassy responded by withdrawing the request to refuel in the north African port city, 
the statement said. Spain had originally approved the stop -- from Friday through November 2 -- 
as it has done on previous occasions.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday acknowledged Russia's right 
to operate on international waters but reiterated concern 
"about the possibility that the Kuznetsov carrier group can be used as a platform 
for more attacks against Aleppo and Syria, 
and thereby exacerbating the humanitarian catastrophe."

"NATO does not seek a confrontation with Russia," he told reporters. 
"We don't want a new Cold War and we don't want a a new arms race."

Spanish authorities would not confirm the exact current location of the flotilla.

The warships left Russia October 15 on what the Russian navy said 
was a mission "to ensure naval presence in the important areas of the World Ocean.

"Special focus will be made on safeguarding security of maritime traffic 
and other types of Russian maritime economic activity 
and also responding to new kinds of modern threats such as piracy and international terrorism," 
the Russian statement said.

The movement of the Russian warships to Syria 
could also give Russia a chance to test its only aircraft carrier to make sure it's working properly, 
and will also give Western powers the opportunity to examine it at close range, Felstead said Friday.

Launching aircraft from a carrier like the Admiral Kuznetsov, 
which uses a fixed, ramp-assisted takeoff, 
is a difficult and risky operation that requires a lot of practice.

The Russian fleet also includes a nuclear-powered battle cruiser, Pyotr Velikiy, 
and two Udaloy Class Destroyers. 
The Admiral Kuznetsov itself is capable of carrying 50 war planes.
The Russian fleet is believed to be sailing to the Syrian port of Tartus. 

Russia's defense ministry said on October 10 
it was poised to transform its naval facility there into a permanent base.
