Romney is so out of touch with America! You want this man to be Commander In Chief of our military and he can't even tell the difference between American and Russian ships? Herrrrrrrr! Derrrrrrrrrrp!

Oh wait...it was the DNC?

Nevermind then. Honest mistake.

hasty ambush: Arkanaut: Maybe they didn't think they could be Russian ships because they weren't rusting in their docks.

That would be their subs

quatchi: So it was picture of American jet fighter trainers flying over the Black Sea Fleet 6+ years ago?

Perhaps it wasn't a mistake and honoring the Americans in the pic was the point.

/Yeah, not likely to occur to a Navy guy, just sayin'.

What if the person making the video montage just didn't know the difference?


Bush's fault.

Heh heh, poopdeck.

MFAWG: You_Really_Like_Me: redundantman: The lesson is simple: the Democrats need to stick with what they are good at and stop trying to pander to national defense hawks.

Exactly. Reminds me of the image of McGovern riding around in the tank - wearing battle gear.

/I'm a democrat and wondering what we are good at right now.

George McGovern flew 35 missions over Germany as a bomber pilot, winning a DFC in the process.

So what? Veteran is a starndard that you should have to live up to not a shield that says you can do no wrong or that your sins or overlooked. I am a veteran and just because a politician claims to be one does not hold any sway with me.

Bendicted Arnold was decorated American hero wounded in battle became a traitor

Duke Cunningham was a Vietnam Fighter Ace later corrupt poltician convicted criminal

John Murtha decorated Marine Vietnam vet, corrupt poltician, unconvicted criminal (Abscam and many others)

John Glenn WWII and Korea War vet, astronaut, corrupt politican, unconvicted criminal (Keating 5, Lincoln S&L)

John McCain (another John maybe it' s the name) Vietnam vet, corrupt politician, unconvicted criminal (Keatng 5, Lincoln S&L)

In fact I am suspicious of any career military personnel (outside of George Washington) who goes into politics. They are opposites. One is a professionof honor, standards and codes the other is politics.

ObeliskToucher: . the fighters look like some model of Flanker, though, not American -- notice the forward projects at the wingtips.

They are F-5s.

Considering The original source of the picture. (scroll down) I think it's hilarious. DNC stole from the common man... Well, the Russian variety of such.

Similarly, the third ship has a MR-310 "Head Net" air search radar, shaped like two off-set bananas, at its masthead and is mostly likely the guided missile destroyer Smetlivyy.
