Bravo! The emperor has no clothes (and no shame).

Just curious about other folks thoughts re:

Now I am not saying the Emperor has no clothes, I wish merely to point out that the tailors and seamstresses quality of craftsmanship is severely lacking. Leaves that poor old Emperor vulnerable to a cold or worse.

I doubt Trump has changed his personal opinions on NATO and he hasn't moderated his intentions to make up with the Kremlin so there is hope.

When I see British generals quoted they are so fond of NATO and seem to forget an alliance is means not an end. Our nation's security is not based on NATO, it is based on our geography as Shakespeare well knew.

This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,

My spidey senses are tingling after reading that one. Here's another article I found on that topic that is a tad less sensational...

Russian defense minister purges Baltic Fleet command
Russia's defense minister has purged the commander of the Baltic Fleet and his senior officers following a sweeping inspection http://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2016-06-30/russian-defense-minister-purges-baltic-fleet-command

Here's an article by John Helmer on the Australian borg and Russia... great headline!

Trump still doesn't know what the nuclear triad is and why it is!

Alexey

From what I've read in different Russian sources US News is basically right. With key words "military construction". Plus systemic misreporting of situation in Baltic fleet hence the scope of purge.

Get rid of the dross while there is still time. In the US, the incompetents would have been promoted.
