Russia is throwing the kitchen sink in order to commit further war crimes in Syria - the fleet will likely have battlefield nuclear weapons etc

Russia taunts US with biggest military offensive since the Cold War 
Russia has begun its biggest surface deployment since the end of the Cold War as it aims to effectively end the war in Syria on the eve of the US election, Nato officials warned last night.

The Kremlin is sending the full might of its Northern Fleet and part of the Baltic Fleet to reinforce a final assault on the city of Aleppo in a fortnight, according to Western intelligence.

These vessels have a long journey from bases of the Russian Northern Fleet. Their exact route is unclear, but they will either pass through the English Channel or to the west of Ireland.
What will Enda Kenny do ? Will he send our navy to monitor ? If the US/UK wanted to interdict the fleet would he aid ?

My bet is ...he will try to sell them cups of tea ...only question is...will he send out MMOC on her own...or will it be a double act ?

Probably has something to do with the moditariat's decision to start their own thread on tonight's debate, despite their being an existing one for several days.

Enda times, I tell ya.

WTF are you on about?

The PANA types have no problem with how many the Russians kill. Vlad could nuke a country and they would celebrate.

We should give the Russians a seaport on the Western seaboard in exchange for cheap gas.
Regarding the fleet, I'd like to say "Thank you very much" for saving minorities in the Middle East and preventing the genocide of millions as our Govts funded the death squads.

Send some boats out loaded to the gunwales with Aran jerseys and little plastic leprechaun key fobs and stuff.

No fianna failers. The cash box would go missing along with the boats and we'd be into years of extradition capers with the Spanish legal system.

Ah - I meant of course allowing the UK be in our waters, ports etc ...

To do what?
Prevent Russians protecting victims of Daesh?
To allow the British to continue their policy of arming and fast-tracking Jihadists to Syria?.
Stick to the tittilation threads. Thats your forte.

I'd Imagine the November weather would do more damage than the Irish Navy.

Which is not a slight on the Irish Navy by the way.

I suspect this fleet will set course south along the UK eastern shoreline and through the English Channel as opposed to Irish western shorelines.
There is added value gained by Putin having media broadcast footage of a Russian naval battle fleet sail within close proximity of the UK capital. What will be deliberately provocative and dangerous, if Migs began air combat readiness exercises from the carrier deck when in close proximity to London. The RAF Typhoon's will be scrambled as per usual and suspect the Astute class subs will be leaving the Clyde to shadow the fleet, making their presence known.

Send out the navy.



If any of their sailors fall overboard we can rescue them.


We are the world's best. Simply awesome.

the Russian navy are aware Claire Daly might get her baps out for the passing sailors, and they don't have reflective goggles that strong.

Remarkably silly thread.

Russian Navy have right of navigation in international waters and right of innocent passage in coastal waters (English Channel).

So?
