Coffee Thinking’s: Black Sea The Volatile Washtub…

hot-cup-of-coffeeI know you heard about this. It was propaganda at its best and Russia just posts what the U.S. is whining about. Russia has learned that western media makes itself look like an ignorant buffoon, because the western press has a very low level of intelligence to deal with, in its stories. Americans as a rule are not that well educated and reading is a byproduct of that situation. So post the dribble from the west and the west looks less and less intelligent everyday…

The Pentagon said a Russian fighter jet made multiple close-range passes near an American navy destroyer. The warship was deployed in the Black Sea as Russian military monitored NATO’s systematic build-up of naval forces in the region. “This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with their national protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries,” said Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman. “I have difficulty believing that two Russian pilots on their own would choose to take such an action.”

First lets understand where this happened. This did not happen in the Gulf of Mexico or somewhere near the U.S., it happened near Russia and Ukraine and it was in the Black Sea.  Now the Black Sea is about as big as a old time washtub when it comes to putting tons and tons of warships in it…

Right now the Black Sea is way too crowded. As of today there are 5 non-black sea warships operating on limited time: USS Truxtun DDG-103 Displacement 9,200 tons, USS Donald Cook DDG-75 Displacement 8,900 tons, FR Dupleix D-641 Displacement 4,500 tons, FR Alize A-645 Displacement 1,600 tons and FR Dupuy de Lome A-759 Displacement 3,100 tons = Total 27,300 tons and the Montreax Convention has a limit for such vessels at a total of 30,000 tons. Looks like we are pushing the limits and that is a stupid game to play…

The issue, is that any US/western Naval Vessel in the Black Sea would be a sitting duck in a real military conflict.  Russia has the Black Sea well covered and we are like a duck in a shooting gallery. It’s so embarrassing to see what we (U.S./west) is doing and acting like…

Point is that the Black Sea is a Russian controlled washtub and the western warships really need to leave before they set off a situation that they can not control. It would be like Russia and China sending warships to the Gulf of Mexico and floating right up to the shore of the gulf. The Black Sea is not that big people…

It isn’t that large an area.  If you’re travelling at 800 KPH then you might cross the Black Sea in 25 minutes. The plane was probably doing take-off and landing runs from a Russia base in Sebastopol. Yes there are Russian bases there and we have our ships too close to them, not the other way around…

Just imagine we have a washtub with 10 destroyers (5 of them non-Black-Sea) and 10 Russian planes in the air over the Black Sea doing normal training and recon and we want a 50 mile radius buffer zone? Then throw in automatic defense systems. Its like a old time pinball machine out on the Black Sea and everyone is hot and lit up. Any boat that the U.S. stupidly puts in the Black Sea can be sunk easily and quickly…

That means we screw up and we cause World War Three, because we are where we should not be in the first place…

Lets look at it this way: What if the Russian Navy was the same distance from the US? Say, “humanitarian” efforts in Cuba?

Now that would be (In western media and peoples eyes) a completely different and/but exactly the same situation, as we have in the Black Sea. Why is this? This is because we are hypocritical about 99% of everything in our life and we live life with a “Do as we say, not as we do” existence…

This is all for western public consumption, in order to give us a boogie man. It helps keep us distracted and the Military Industrial Complex gets it’s funding. But actually, it was possibly a recon aircraft getting the ships tracking radar signatures for jamming purposes later on. Then who cares? Because the jet was in its home and uninvited guest were around. The guest should leave and quit trying to stir trouble…

I’m not thinking that there’s a lot of mental calculating here so much as it’s just a Barnum and Baily big show.  Russia pretty much has all the cards and will deal them as she see fit.  The US only has its military, backed by massive debt.  When you’re (Russia) able to operate out of your own backyard it’s a bit easier… (supply lines)

A big issue is that, we (U.S.) like always, assume that we can do anything we want and get away with it. Now we are sitting in a washtub full of weapons and want to complain about the locals doing what ever they do, on a daily bases…

So once again the west shows her ignorance and it is being done to placate the dumbed-down masses of people, who occasionally look away from what the movie stars are doing to notice who we hate on this planet today…

Now it is hate Russia time…
