Rogozin the Ridiculous Runs Away From His Outrageous Boast

Filed under: Military,Politics,Russia — The Professor @ 8:16 pm

Rogozin the Ridiculous has backed off on his claim that Russia will build an aircraft carrier a year.  Given my early mockery of his outlandish claim (and the fact that the mocking post is the highest Google ranked* and earliest critical analysis) I am totally taking credit for this.  Totally.

Prove me wrong!

* Yes, I understand–it’s the highest English-language analysis. I would be interested to learn what was said on the Russian web about Rogozin’s boast, and when it was said.

  1. Rogozin is presedential material.

  3. Ahem, ’twas in jest. It seems that making promises, not delivering, and instead making even more grandiose promises is what it takes these days in Erefia. New Vasyuki 21st century edition.

  4. Actually, I can see it as a last desperate move of the Putin regime. But bringing him into the fold now was a mistake, IMHO.

  5. Dmitry is outraged that the liberal politicians have claimed fair elections as their issue. He is outraged since everyone wants fair elections.

    Hmmm…if everyone wants fair elections then why aren’t the elections fair. Dima will find out. Whether space plasma, HAARP, or foreign interference Dima will root out the cause.
