    Russia Sends Warships to the Coast of Syria

    Russia is sending warships to the syrian coast, claiming its to help evacuate civilians. what do you think? it seems unwise since a miscommunication between russian and us warships could lead to a skirmish. why not just send civilian ships?

    Wouldn't it be more prudent to send different type of ships than *WAR SHIPS*?

    Warships(if by that they mean aircraft carriers or other such large ships) can hold much more people than even a shipping barge so this is probably the fastest way

    Russia wont do anything there. Maybe shoot down missiles, if they attacked US in them waters their ships are doomed and they know it.

    yeah i remember the royal navy doing the same thing before, can't remember where, maybe it was libya, don't really remember. but we sent some warships to rescue people. they hold a lot of people.

    i can see where unarmed vessels carrying refugees might be considered vulnerable to attach from one side or the other. do i think this is the reason for russian warships? not really. they could always prove me wrong be sailing away guarding the civilian transport ships i guess

    That seems extremely unlikely to me, 1 with the technology of US ships and theirs and 2 the standing ROE of US ships will probably be don't fire unless fired upon (or something to that effect)


    Awesome sig thanks to i4ni

    So you'd rather they send an unarmed ship to get civilians out of a war zone? What?
    Waaaaah this guy was mean to me! Waaaaaaaaah!

    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    I wouldn't mind if there was a stand off. Obama needs to see the shit he's getting us into.

    Stop making sense! People in here want their Russia/US war fantasy to be real...apparently.

    The US sends ships to protect its interests, Russia sends ships to do the exact same. Until either of them give us solid proof without any lies, they can both posture as much as they want, as neither will fire on Syria or each other.

    Wouldn't it be more prudent for Americans to send ships instead of missiles? Seems even if the Russians send warships they're being more humanitarian than us.

    The United States sent warships to evacuate South Vietnam during the Fall of Saigon. It makes sense.

    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community
