As I went through the news this morning to see what had to be discussed the important subjects were numerous. It just gets worse every single day! there are many overwhelming important subjects to discuss every day and today is no exception! However once again I have to digress and discuss the ugly fruit bush's war mongering is bearing for today and the future!
I wont go into great detail on Iraq the middle east and south West Asia not to speak of the rest of the world because I want to spend my time on our back yard as Bush arms whoever he wants and the remainder of the world is arming to take him on. this is sickening!
We see what is happening in Iraq and the middle east as Bush arms who he wants and Russia and China are arming those who are going to face him primarily but not exclusively Iran who we are told is arming Shiite we are fighting in Iraq. That success of Bush's that McCain wants to continue is increasingly being fought once again by Americans as it proves to be too much for Iraq. 20 dead and 52 wounded in clashes between the U.S. military and militiamen with the Mehdi Army
I know both Russia and China are arming many countries as they ally to take on Bush. I know build up has been occuring in South America but I was disturbed to see to what level this morning and just with Russia and Venezuela. Russia expects to sell at least three submarines to Venezuela in a deal to be inked when President Hugo Chavez visits next month, Russian news media reported Friday. The Interfax news agency and the daily Kommersant cited unnamed military-industrial officials as saying that the subs would be diesel-electric models, of the Varshavyanka class. "As of today, work to prepare the contract has practically been completed. The contract's signing will likely be timed with the visit of ... Chavez to Moscow, which is expected in May," the official was quoted as saying by Interfax.
A spokesman for state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport had no comment; no one answered the phones at the Venezuelan Embassy in Moscow. Meanwhile, the daily Kommersant said Venezuela was seeking four submarines in all at a cost of $1 billion. The newspaper also quoted Deputy Finance Minister Dmitry Pankin as confirming talks on a $800 million loan from Russia for the purchase were also under way. The paper said the deal would be signed when Chavez travels to Moscow for the inauguration of incoming President Dmitry Medvedev.
During a visit to Russia last year, Chavez said that his country needs submarines to protect itself against its enemies -- foremost among them the United States. At that time, a top Rosoboronexport official said discussions centered on as many as five so-called "Project 636" Varshavyanka submarines. The ships, known in NATO terms as Kilo-class, are Russia's most advanced non-nuclear submarine. China, India and Iran, among others, have all purchased the subs in recent years. Caracas already has purchased some $3 billion worth of arms from Russia, including military helicopters, Kalashnikov rifles and Sukhoi fighter jets. Kommersant said Venezuela also was negotiating to buy 12 Il-76 military transport. Russia arming Venezuela against us
