WW4/Middle East Files: Russian DM Shoigu says Rostov-on-Don submarine deployed to Syrian coast, fired unspecified number of 3M-54 Kalibr (“Club”) land-attack cruise missiles at ISIS targets: “[The missiles] targeted two major terrorist positions in the territory of Raqqa. We can say with absolute confidence that significant damage has been inflicted upon ammunition warehouses and a mine production plant, as well as the oil infrastructure”; NATO dubs Improved Kilo-class (Project 636) diesel-electric sub “black hole” for super-silent capability, Rostov-on-Don launched in Jan. 2015, commissioned by Black Sea Fleet; Shoigu also reports on punishing air campaign against anti-Assad rebels, entering 10th week: “In the past three days, the operation involved Tu-22[M3, “Backfire”] planes as well as warplanes from the Khmeimim airbase [near Assad stronghold of Latakia]. In total we [Russian Air Force] carried out 300 sorties and hit 600 various targets”; Soviet/Russian military setting historical precedents in Syrian civil war, i.e., first-ever use of ship-launched cruise missiles in warfare (from Caspian Flotilla), first-ever deployment of Tu-160, Tu-95 strategic bombers in overseas combat, first-ever use of LACMs in warfare

    Here’s an interesting twist to the San Bernardino shootings, apparently the shooter’s brother is married to a Russian national….kind of like Lee Harvey Oswald’s Russian wife….

    It looks like US intelligence is waking up about Russia influencing the political process in Europe….also Russia has been doing this in the USA as well. After all former President George W. Bush once stated he looked into the man’s soul and saw a friend, likewise our Soviet mole Barack Obama stated he’d have more “flexibility” in surrendering the USA to Russia after winning the 2012 elections and now with Donald Trump being the “smart” man that he is.
