    Russia I am sure will build many more of these valuable and potent systems to deter the NATO warmongers.
    I hope so anyway :)

      I hope it was used on a MOSSAD/CIA DEEP STATE MERCENARIES, COMAND POST.

      • FlorianGeyer

        I concur 100% :)

        I wonder if the HMS Queen Elizabeth is in fact a cunning new weapon and tat the ‘leak’ is part of a grand design for an Under water Aircraft Carrier ?

        A completely new weapon concept in the spirit of the past.

          Haha, do you think they were trying to save money on the Dreadnought Submarine programme? Turn HMS Queen Elizabeth into a submersible aircraft carrier.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Schhhhhh, walls have ears. That is an Official Military Secret and to disclose it is punishable by a fate worse that death. A night outwith Theresa may and Boris Johnson in Brussels with a mystery Eurocrat.

            Lets just hope that this cunning British plan has not been ‘hacked’ by the Russians as thy look and listen to everything in the universe :) Even here !

          • FlorianGeyer

            Its just a natural progression in a Topsy Turvey and Orwellian world. :)

            God only knows what will happen in 2018 if the Libard/NeoCon’s get their wish of a world war.

            They are trying their hardest. Happy Christmas and good luck in 2018.

            And you as well. We may well need it in any forthcoming ‘nuclear winter’. :)

          The HMS Queen Elizabeth is another out of date white elephant that Chinese missiles will sink in 30 minutes of hostilities opening, if she’s unfortunate enough to be within range.

        They have got more money than America. Who had to beg Congress, to allow them to pay the Government bills and workers, for Christmas. As the money has run out. What is going to happen after 18th January, if they cannot achieve a war between then and now?

        • Solomon Krupacek

        • Solomon Krupacek

          • AM Hants

            Hahaha, are please explain what a dictatorship is? Does it include the leader holding regular 3-4 hour, question and answer, marathon sessions with your people. Where they hold your Government to account or with the hostile and friendly national and international media?

            Or is it a Presidential Campaigner, who cannot handle losing and over a year later is still whinging, whining and a moaning, plus not forgetting how the nation, behind so many regime change scripts is still holding an investigation. That has turned up nothing more than a politician meeting a foreign ambassador at a public function.

        Russia has forex reserves 3.5 that of the U.S. and a debt <5% of the $20+ trillion U.S. debt.

        • Solomon Krupacek

      • FlorianGeyer

            Reality has a habit of proving many wrong and the History of Money supports this.

  • HowsItWorkingOutForYa

    It is with deep sorrow I find myself rooting for the “other guys”. In reading the posts it seems I am not alone. Shame on those that have turned this country into a pariah on the world. I had hoped the “new” guy was honest when he said he was anti-war. ‘New boss same as the old boss’ seems to be the case.

    • John Mason

      When was the last time you had an ‘honest’ POTUS? You should have known better. Slow learner?

    • AM Hants

      You are not the only one. Same, from the UK, what our Governments wish to do in our name.

    Iskander is the first hypersonic missile ever produced and used in combat.
