RE: Syria and Turkey.
Recently there was intelligence that a Russian transport ship was taking refurbished attack helicopters and air defense systems to syria....... somehow (logistically wise I dont see how) the ship came close to the UK and it had its insurance removed and had to stop.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnew...yria.html#

What is known is that turkey give refuge to the syrian rebels on the border of the two countries....... turkey have now said that anything military near the borders will be seen as a threat. I would imagine this has given a morale boost to the rebels as they now to a certain degree have backup on the border. Consider

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

"A Russian ship believed to be carrying helicopters and missiles for Syria has
been effectively stopped in its tracks off the coast of Scotland"

*looks at map*

WTF!?

Completely off topic but can I just say that that ship is exactly the type I want to own. A small Feeder with the cranes and everything (doesn't have to have the cranes but they usually come with cranes), can hold like 500 containers. Not as much as the New Panamax or Ultra Large classes with their 12,000ish and 14,000+ish respectfully container limit. But hey, I can't afford one of those (well, not that I can even afford the $5million for a Feeder but still) and you gotta start somewhere right.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
