    Their relationship was eroding towards the end. Bush the 2nd was not happy about vladimir's invasion of georgia and called him "cold blooded."

    South Ossetia, a country that was grafted forcibly into Georgia by the Supreme Soviet Leader of Georgian Ancestry, Ioseb Besarionis Dze Jugashvili, AKA Josef Stalin, is now free.

    Although CNN tried to spin it as a Russian invasion, everybody - even the Europeans - agree Georgia tried to annex South Ossetia by invasion (apparently annexation and breaking apart countries is okay when a formerly prospective NATO member does so like Kosovo).

    Russia has never been known as "tolerant." This goes back centuries, at least early 1600s. They never had a true european enlightment, more like total fucking darkness rooted in slavophile superstition (at least as far as majority of population and social institutions was concerned).

    Russia has a shitload of ethnicities. Most Russians themselves describe themselves as Eurasian rather than European.

    Do you want to compare the Russian record with Siberians and Central Asians with the history of Britain, Spain, with Wogs, Native Americans, Incas, Indians, Burmese, Filipinos, etc.?

    The #1 export of Venice and Genoa were Russian, Polish, and Lithuanian Slav(e)s, taken by Tatars and Mongolians and sold in Azov and Kaffa for export to the Arabs in Alexandria. No racism there, though, the Venetians happily sold the Children's Crusade into slavery in Alexandria as well when the Pope couldn't pay for transportation and housing.

    Of course there's a rise in incidents against immigrants.
    That's because for the first time in a long time, the #2 top destination for immigrants worldwide is....?

    Russia.
    http://www.gks.ru/free_doc/new_site/population/demo/migr1.xls

    When did the incidents increase? In 2009. When did Russia start experiencing strong immigration? 2009.

    Even Neoliberal Heartthrob and Putin-critic Navalny has been sounding the alarm bells about Central Asian immigration:
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/markadomanis/2014/08/04/3-things-barack-obama-got-wrong-about-russia/

    So for the first time in a long time, there is a massive influx of immigrants to Russia from Central Asia. UKIP is also picking up seats in the UK. Anti-immigrant parties do better with each passing year in Europe. Criticism of the benefits of mass, almost unchecked immigration relative to the number of jobs created picks up a majority of Republican Voters and a plurality of Democrats in the USA.

    As for the source:
    Institute of Modern Russia
    Is wholly funded by Mikhail Khordorkovsky, an Oligarch-Mafioso who hates Putin because Putin made him the first target of his anti-Oligarch campaign. Khodorkovsky is one of those Glasnost-era Communist Functionaries who used their smuggling revenue, bribery, and influence to buy up Government Properties and especially Oil Reserves and Mines for a fraction of their (proven reserve) value.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Khodorkovsky

    Khordorkovsky & Yukos Assassination Group

    He's also connected to the Murder of a Russian Mayor when the latter complained that Yukos did not pay local taxes, among other things. Many ex-KGB agents were employed by the like of Khordorkovsky to bribe and assassinate troublesome officials - something Russophobes and Putin-haters like to gloss over. A helluva lot more Russian dogoodniks and reporters disappeared in the 90s than in the 2000s, especially ones that chased after Lebedev or Khordorkovsky and their ilk. Oligarchs in turn hate Putin, because they expected him to be Yeltsin Part 2, and help continue their unofficial overlordship of Russia.

    Meet Alexey Pichyugin, Convicted serial murderer and former Security Official of Yukos Oil.

    Victims include:
    * Sergei and Olga Kostina (founder of Bank Menatep, major Yukos shareholder, former advisor to Khodorkovsky, former Yukos Public Relations Chief). Their mutual deaths were very convenient for Khodorkovsky.
    * Valentina Korneyeva (a Moscow business owner who had refused to sell her property to Bank Menatep)
    * Vladimir Petukhov, mayor of Nefteyugansk (who had insisted that Yukos pay local taxes in full) and
    * Nikolai Fedotov, a chauffeur (killed during an assassination attempt on Evgeny Rybin). A previous attempt had been made upon Mr. Rybin's life as he left a birthday party for a Menatep top manager while he was suing the company in Stockholm Arbitration court.
    and two failed attempts at murder.

    It's even worse than the article states.

    In most jurisdictions, Thug Unions have made governments agree that cops have 48-72 hours to review allegations before being interviewed (to 'reduce stress' on officers), cannot be interviewed without a union rep and/or union lawyer present unless they actively agree to be interviewed without one.

    In short, far more leeway than any citizen would get - they have time to concoct a story after seeing the evidence against them.

    Bad tactics aren't the same as a bad plane. Look at wwII. The british p40 pilots in burma were slaughtered by the zero, yet chennaults pilots in the same p40s had a field day against the same zero. Different tactics. Look at the P39. Everyone hated them except the russians who loved them. The difference is the russians used them for busting tanks not dogfighting. Ground support was exactly what the P39 was designed for in the first place.

    Agreed, however, the "Flying Tiger" P-40s in Burma/China fought the rather "average" Ki-27 Army Fighter until around 1942 and not the more agile and deadly Zero, which was flown by the IJN and not introduced until 1940, or the Ki-43 that didn't really appear in numbers until 42-43.

    I agree that the P-40 had a bad reputation it didn't really deserve.

    The F-105 was a plane designed to nuclear bomb airfields, concentration of enemy forces, etc. To get in and out fast and toss the bomb like the Voodoo was modified to do after the USAF decided it didn't need an escort fighter. It was the wrong plane used for the wrong mission. Like the JSF, it's too thin skinned and sluggish for conventional bombing.

    bob2356 says

    Used as intended the 105 did a fine job and was well regarded.

    Used as intended the F-105 was made mincemeat of by Ground based Air Defence, since air-tossing a nuke that only has to be roughly on target while flying at high speed and dropping a bomb on the center of a bridge and having to slow down to aim properly (or make multiple passes) are two different things. The moment the F-105 slowed to attack speed, it got turned into swiss cheese since it was too heavy and sluggish to maneuver (hence, "Thud" for Speed but "Lead Sled" for agility). A tactical bomber that can't jink and dodge is not a good airframe.

    When MiGs evaded escorts and got near F-105s, they also got torn to shreds. Vietnamese Aces made their bones on F-105s - against MiG-17s it wasn't even able to defend itself or evade.

    Even as a SEAD aircraft, it wasn't effective, because of the reasons above.

    The first operational F-105 jet in service was in 1958. In 1964 it was considered a spanking brand-new model. And 2nd Generation (first generation would be MiG-17, F-86, Meteor - 40s era designs).

    The F-4 Phantom first was operational in 1960, so they're peer aircraft. The USAF adopted the Navy's F-4 Phantom - not a USAF led design or project. The F-4 in Wild Weasel configuration even replaced the last niche the USAF tried to find for the F-105, Air Defence Suppression.

    In fact, Wild Weasel Phantoms stayed in the USAF until 1996. That's 36 years in service for the F-4, and going on 40 years for the F-15. Shit, Germany, Spain, and Turkey flew F-4s until just a few years ago.

    Edit: Turkey is still flying the F-4 and will until at least 2020.

    bob2356 says

    They had something like 22,000 missions from 1964 to 1972, mostly over heavily defended "thud ridge" leading to hanoi .

    Impossible because the last F-105 squadron was hastened out of the Vietnam theatre in 1970; most left before that.

    Missions != Success. B-17s flew plenty of missions over Germany, didn't have much of an effect - German production increased every year of the war, and the bombing of cities didn't break German will. Meanwhile, the USAAF suffered massive causalty rates. The Luftwaffe flew plenty of missions over England in August-September 1940, too, to no avail.

    After 1968-69 it was relegated only to SEAD duties. It was then completely out of USAF active service everywhere by the mid 70s. You bet after it's mediocre performance in Vietnam, the USAF didn't want to depend on them in Germany! Yet the F-4 continued into the 90s (and in other air forces well beyond that).

    To reiterate, the F-105 lasted a whole 3-4 years as the primary bomber in Vietnam as an airframe (less) than a decade old. That is not a succesful design, especially considering the F-4 was utilized in an even more dangerous electronic warfare and AD environment in the 90s and even 2000s.

    The last of the Air Guard units that had them foistered on them dumped them ASAP at the start of the 80s.

    The F-105 was such a bad airframe, the USAF Thunderbirds Demo Team went back to F-100 Super Sabres after a fatal incident and numerous problems flying the F-105. This happened prior to 1964, so the USAF should have known they had a lemon.

    I have never read a Vietnam history or any article on the F-105 that did not consider the aircraft a disappointment.

    The F-105 shares several things in common with the JSF - too much wingload, making it sluggish and unable to evade effectively at bombing altitudes, heavy as hell, fat fuselage, single engine, and single seat.

    Because rents aren't going up fast enough.

    Because wages for unskilled workers are going up too fast, strangling the economy, plus we have less than 3% unemployment and many crucial jobs aren't being filled because of lack of workers.

    Also, full employment among rural whites, urban blacks, and native Americans.

    Russia - Chechnya Islamic problem.

    Not anymore! The Russians saved the urban Chechens from their hillbilly redneck cousins funded by Saudi Arabia.

    Putie took care of 'em all, despite Saudi Arabia asking US Politicians ordering it's employees to complain and bitch the whole time he was doing it.

    You see, when Chechen hillbillies bombed Russia, Russia utterly eradicated them from the Earth down to the last man. Even the final holdout gang was tracked down in the Caucasus and ambushed by Spetznaz.

    When Saudi Arabians hit the WTC, US Politicians attacked Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Lybia and Syria, but not the homeland of the criminals.

    Once upon a time a Russian diplomat was kidnapped by an Islamic Terror Group. The KGB grabbed some Wahabi clerics and sent some fingers every day their diplomat remained in their custody. He was handed back untouched on the 3rd day.

    Nevermind the reason they are here is because welfare addict right-wing state Big Agra destroyed Mexican Farmers with Fugitive Traitors/Free Trade.

    Last thing big agra and meatpackers want is less illegal immigration. It might allow wages to rise or unions to re-assert themselves. Caesar Chavez himself was aware that illegal immigration and guest workers made unionization almost impossible to sustain in the longterm.

    The Russians are just fine with us messing around in Kiev, the same way we wouldn't mind if the Russians screwed around in Mexico City or Ottawa, started sending Spetznaz to train the Mexican Army and Federales, and talked about building Airbases in Baja California and the Yucatan.

    Frankly, I don't know why Putin hasn't marched into Kiev yet. Nothing we can do about it. Don't think the Russians won't. This is an existential issue for them.

    Our shitty, moronic leaders are maintaining and improving alliances - fuck, they're the stooges - of the Wahabi Lobby in the Middle East.

    We should be partnering with Russians to smash the Wahabis together. Russia not only has a long history of advancing against Islam successfully, but moderating and/or converting Muslims into moderates, even Christians. Few other countries can boast of that success record. The offer has been made over and over again.

    Let's risk nuclear war over a handful 19th Century "We're really Vikings" bullshit of Galician Nazi Symp Pole-lynching, Jew-killing Redneck Peasant Mullet-heads (er, Khokhol heads).

    China and Russia are getting closer and closer as a result of Neocon/Neoliberal policies.

    There's probably a Sino-Russia pact mutual defense pact coming soon. Their worst weapon, other than ICBMs, is Economic. The US is heavily, heavily dependent on Chinese goods, not just in Retail, but everything from Drywall to Wafer Boards. Our entire supply chain that runs through China ain't gonna be replaced in a few days.
