    Romney is living in another time, damn.

    Medvedev Calls Out Romney For Russia Comment - Forbes

    Mitt Romney cannot possibly be serious. To call Russia “our number one foe” this week was a step back in time. But that’s one time machine Russian leadership doesn’t want to travel in.

    People in their 30s and early 40s probably remember Flavor Flav from the rap group Public Enemy. He wore a clock around his neck because he knew what time it was. Someone has to get the former Massachusetts governor one of those.

    Romney told Wolf Blitzer on Monday that, “Russia, this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They fight every cause for the world’s worst actors.”

    Romney was referring to the fact that Russia has been against U.N. sanctions on Libya, Iran, and Syria. And joined with China (and others) against the war in Iraq.

    But to say Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical foe was a stretch. And not how Washington sees it. On Monday, President Barack Obama met with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, who said that the two countries have never been closer.

    So after hearing Romney’s comment, Medvedev said from Seoul, “This ‘number one foe’ type of phrase smacks of Hollywood.” Then he issued a warning to Washington White House contenders: “I would advise all pretenders to the U.S. presidency…to use their heads. This is not a bad thing for a presidential candidate.”

    Medeved just got an underhanded deal from obama to sell out the US and eastern Europe. I hardly think he'd agree with Romney.

    Where does China get the military jet engines?

    List of Chinese Aircraft Engines

    ^ From the OP given link (at the bottom)

    Jet engines are seriously missing.

    Jet Engines - China - Yes, this is a dead link, the same as on the OP link at the bottom of the page.

    First China-made jet engine to debut in 2016

    China is unable to design a decent civilian jet engine yet and their 'war machine'? Russia is clearly more of a threat than a China that has a hard time keeping the jet engines they purchase in good working order. Then Russian experience in foreign war, global intelligence gathering and manipulating, etc. etc. China builds no military jet engines that are in use.

    China's getting better, but nowhere near as capable as Russia and so I agree with Mitt.

    I dont know that Romney is wrong here. Maybe China is a bigger geopolitical foe. But then they also fund our government.

    What unmitigated bullshit. Just like the rw's to side with Mittens who has said he wants to take money from infrastructure in order to build our military even larger. Doesn't matter that ours is bigger than the next 13 militarizes. Do you people ever bother to THINK??

    Even your hero, the worst speaker in our history, couldn't get behind Mittens on this terrible and possibly damaging statement.

    The cold war is over. We need Russia as much as Russia needs us. Idiot GObP/R's need to stop playing kuh-boy and injuns.
