Obama Ignores Russian Plans for Naval Base in Cuba


If things go as planned, Russia could soon have a naval base just over 90 miles away from the continental U.S. Our former Cold War foe has been in talks with Cuba for some time, and is now making it known that a deal between the two nations is closer to happening.

Russian Vice Admiral Viktor Chirkov says Russia is “studying the creation of points for assistance and technical maintenance” not only in Cuba, but in “the Republic of Seychelles and Vietnam” as well. In short, this means that while Obama continues to dismiss Russia as any real threat to American interests or American security, Russia is looking for ways to expand its Navy’s global reach.

It’s worth noting that if the base in Cuba does come to fruition, ships armed with Russian cruise missiles and more could sitting less than a hundred miles from our shore. Yet neither the Obama administration nor the Pentagon have expressed concern over the potential naval base. Instead, they’ve issued statements that sound somewhat supportive of Russia in this endeavor.

Whether the base is built or not, this whole issue brings Gov. Romney’s comment from April back into focus: “[Russia is] our number one geopolitical foe.”

  1. I saw the article on this; and a couple of days before I read this, I read that while the Russians were here in a mock military thing with out people… it came out that Russia gave US a list of why Obama must go. They also mention the Military Coup. They do NOT trust him and they want him replaced; or at least that’s the way I read it.

    A shocking Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (MTC) report red-lined to President Putin this morning warns that “various elements” within the US Military establishment are “actively planning” for the overthrow of President Barack Obama before the November elections.

    According to this report, Russian Naval Infantry Forces commanders participating in Rim of the Pacific-2012 (RIMPAC) international naval war games off Hawaii (the world’s largest multi-national maritime exercise) this week were told by their US counterparts aboard the USS Port Royal (CG-73) that Obama had to be overthrown as he posed the most dangerous threat to the United States since the founding of their nation. US Military commanders, this report continues, stated that American officers and soldiers, along with elected and appointed Federal government officials, all take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, of which they claim Obama is one due to his overturning of established law and constitutional precedents
    bringing their country to the brink of all-out civil war.
