Russia decided to take Hillary at her word and they've hit the Reset button:
Russia could use bases for its strategic bombers on the doorstep of the United States in Cuba and Venezuela to underpin long-distance patrols in the region, a senior air force officer said Saturday. Knowing full well that Obama has no intention of building up our military, and knowing full well that Obama pretty much defines pacificist leanings, Russia has no fear of American repercussions from these intentions.
"This is possible in Cuba," General Anatoly Zhikharev, chief of the Russian air force's strategic aviation staff, told the Interfax-AVN military news agency.
The comments were the latest signal that Moscow intends to project its military capability in far-flung corners of the globe despite a tight defence budget and hardware that experts consider in many respects outdated.
That, and Obama and Putin share
leftist Marxist similar political philosophies. Birds of a feather!
The extra bonus in this little play is that if the Russians do park their military 90 miles off our southern shore, Obama's relaxation of travel restrictions to the island nation means that tourists can go there and take pictures of the buildup. Sweet!
Don't you love the smell of HopenchangeTM in the air? The world just loves our president. So much so that they want to get closer to him.
The last time that Russia tried this, our president had actually served in and respected our military...
