The Russian Navy maintains a fleet of about 60 nuclear-powered and diesel-electric submarines, a senior Navy official said on Thursday.

"These 60 vessels include 10 nuclear-powered strategic submarines, over 30 nuclear-powered attack submarines, diesel-electric submarines and special-purpose subs," the source said.

Delta-IV and Delta-III class subs form the backbone of Russia's strategic submarine fleet. They each carry 16 ballistic missiles with multiple warheads, and feature advanced electronics and noise reduction.

1848
Ground breaking begins for the Washington Monument. An Obelisk stemming from Egypt in origen to worship the Sun Demon Sorath.

add "66' years and World War 1, 1914. H.G. Well coined it,'the war to end all wars' in order to get the youth involved. Mass carnage, the beast feeds upon.

1913 The illegal Federal reserve is founded. Add 66 years and?
1979 the Iranian Hostage situation.
Add "66" years to 1914? President Reagan wins the Presidency and during the innaguration becomes the First US President to 'face' the Washington Monument while being sworn in.( a sign that the Jesuit/Illuminati have taken over the White House)

3 X 666 is 1998. subtract "66' years and? 1932 Adolph Hitler wins the election in Germany.

PDD 51 hasnt been repealed. Nor has the Brentenwoods 2 meeting been made public......... So the ultimate jail sentence belongs to have first resident George Bush Evil reside there.

And the dismantling of the John Warner appropriationa act and the security and prosperity agreement.

Ten years eh? A wasted decade so scoundrels in Washington , Wall Street and Oversea's bankers can rip off America? All they are going to jail is players, not those who fixed the game and the game is still afoot..... Madoff made a plea deal, why? Because of 'national security' said the SEC before congress. What does that mean? It means the white house is dirty. And who was in that dirty white house? The President who should be in jail. And where is that money missing? Nothing has been done in the jailing of Madoff unless the money is recovered. Nothing. The money went to black ops, and cloak and dagger funding. Blackmail and buying propoganda.

Irans supreme Ayotollah just told Obama to go stuff it to. LOL. One thing Iran is not lacking , is education and how to read between the lines.

You may not like what you see in America in ten years, if in fact in 20 its not Road warriors.

Nope. That's reserved for their subs. Where it's necessary for defence purposes and the expense becomes justified. LOL.

So, in the US provision of toilet and plumbing is expense of the State?
Is this socialism?

I think not. This is personal expenditure.

The world applauds the long overdue counterbalance to American reckless fraud, theft, murder and criminality.

Considering Russians pay far less tax than Americans- then it is logical to also assert the government does not owe them very much and instead respects the intelligence and resourcefulness of its' highly educated populace.

Furthermore, much good quality Soviet infrastructure remains. The rubbish has long since rotted or collapsed.

Yes indeed there is poverty, but life is improving year to year. Employment and economic growth figures are very healthy.
Health and safety are improving too.

Russia indeed has some way to fully modernise its' society, but considering it has only been recently open society and considering how much poverty exists in the "land of dreams America" where poor people eat from garbage can, airline pilots are on food stamps and many issues of severe social decay are rife- it is doing quite well.

Russians are very resilient and resourceful people. It take more than leaky toilet pipe to scuttle them. Perhaps vodka and borsch/pelmeni shortage- but I jest

So, the less taxes, the more the government respects its citizens? Come on! Health is NOT improving in Russia. The average Russia still lives ten years less that the average Westerner. Your economy is falling faster than the rest of the West. The average "poor" person in the USA makes more per year than the average Russian. And as for fraud, theft, murder and criminality, our numbers are accurate and open. Can you say Russia is accurate and open about its crime numbers? Come visit.

Do you lie for purpose or just use outdated data? Perhaps you read too much bullshit in your papers, that are mostly anti-Russian. Your cliches haven't changed for decades so no wonder you blether rubbish.

I'll take that as a "no" answer to my question.

Here is a where I got the "lie" about life expectancies: United Nations World Population Prospects report, for the period 2005-2010
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie...

It shows Russian males can expect to live 65.5 years while German males live 78.95 years. So, I was wrong when I said Westerners live ten years longer. This reference says that difference is more like 14 years.

Next time you want to comment in reply to something I post, try doing it without calling someone a liar, and try to provide evidence to the contrary. Otherwise you just look the fool.

What is wrong with you cry-baby Western.
It is the last worst years of your life you live longest.
The time when you get impotence, bad prostate, poor eyesight, poor hearing.
I prefer to go out while I am still in possession of faculties like a Russian.
Westerns are children- you fear death to much Death is the child of Father Time or have you forgotten your own mythologies?

My point about Russia.
Yes- some issue of poverty- but IMPROVING and much stories of success, improvement and good news.
There are many civic and charity minded Russians who care very much about their communities and are dong amazing work with minimal resources.

Look at America- many are falling into poverty. This is terrible- and I hope the USA's taste of butter poverty will remind them of the suffering their Government and Corporation impose on the world.

And I think here- no one in reality here gloat about poverty or suffering of others.
It is horrible and we all hope and pray for everyone's people to have a good life even the American.

.
Do you think that life expectancy for Russian males will increase by 10 years, if Putin cancels the submarines?

Maybe if he scraps the Russian fleet altogether, the same people will have another extra 5 years to live?

And to match countries where longivity is almost 80 years old, to do think Russia will have to forfeit its air force too?

I fail to see the link between defence expenditure and life expectancy. This model is no transferable everywhere. Russia defence budget is a fraction of what some countries spend.

Life expectancy in Russia has declined just as defence budget have come down, and social problems shot up; all brought down by the collapse of communism, mass unenployement, breakdown of families, etc...

The reply by me addressed whether or not the Russian government respected its population. The difference in life expectancies reflects all kinds of variables, but alcoholism and bad quality of medicine are the major causes in Russia. Those you list are more like symptoms, not causes. Let's hope Russia spends some bucks to get their medical system up to standards and install some programs to reduce alcoholism...and therein is the connection, spend less on defense and more on social programs. I agree Russia spends a smaller amount than many on defense, but reliving the glory days of its now-gone military might won't solve its problems, will it?

Well, last time I planned to visit Russia, it was to be in a tank. It is nice to know I can go there as a tourist now. I too have been with an embassy and had done a grip and grin or two in my day. I wonder how you define the "top 5%" of your citizens.
