    The US keeps poking the bear on its own backyard.
    I wonder what they would be saying had the Russian surface naval expansion not flopped so much because of the trade sanctions.

    They aren't mongoloids but they learned from the mongols. You can't allow foreign powers to push you on your own turf.
    Imagine if the Russians stationed a permanent fleet next to the US in Cuba or something like that. Six destroyers and a carrier.

    The Russians have a different perspective. For them modern Ukraine is just an historical artifact of something which is in the Russian Empire's cultural, economic, and political sphere. I don't necessarily agree with them but I can understand their point of view.

    Quite an interesting choice of words on China-oriented forum. Very europeoid one.

    It should you tell you everything that the Baltic States and other Eastern Europe countries are siding with the West and not Russia.

    One of the reasons is that people like you calling sovereign states the backyard of Russia. It's the pure fear that the Russians are coming back.

    Yet I bet they support Maduro's overthrow. Quite cynical and two-faced of them.

    Poor Russia I guess. Time for them to save the Russian minority in the Baltic!

    What does this word have anything to do with political debate? The debate certainly has nothing to do with the science of Anthropology or Human evolution.
    By definition mongoloid refers to all east Asian population as a sub group of human. I must therefor ask you, what is the specific behaviour (act) of east Asian humans that should be stopped?

    Your act is racist in nature, pretty much the reason that ethnic Russian minority in your country (11% of the population) or your neighbouring country are made stateless which constitutes racial discrimination and severe human right violation.

    What here is done is a combination of strawman arguments after getting called out that sovereign states in Eastern Europe are not Russian backyard.

    You can talk so much about Mudoro or racism it will not change the fact that pretty much all of Europe decided to go with the West and joining an alliance to defend themselves so they will never ever suffer Russian dictation and violence.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has endorsed the idea of a joint European aircraft carrier...

    [​IMG]

    The idea was suggested by her party’s leader, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer.

    Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the politician that succeeded Merkel last year as leader of the governing Christian Democratic Union in Germany, made the proposal in a weekend response to the French President’s proposals for European reform.

    Germany and France are already working together on a future European combat aircraft.

    “The next step could be to start on the symbolic project of building a common European aircraft carrier” to underline what the EU calls its global security role.

    Merkel said Monday, according to Reuters, that “it’s right and good that we have such equipment on the European side, and I’m happy to work on it”.

    It is currently unclear if this is a proposal for a jointly operated vessel or a common class, the latter however appears the least likely due to the cost.

    In October 2018, the French Ministry of Defence launched an 18-month study for €40 million for the eventual future replacement of the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle beyond 2030.

    A decision for the new carrier is scheduled to take place beyond 2025, and the future carrier is to remain in service until beyond 2080 and one of the proposals is pictured above.
