    America has reported a huge rise in Russian sub activity in the seas around Scotland, amid growing tension between the West and Vladimir Putin’s regime as experts warn of a new Cold War.

    American cash will go towards a refurbishment of the runway at the Moray base, including more hangars and accommodation for US navy personnel, to establish Lossiemouth as a major NATO base.

    Here's how the propaganda machine works. The U.K. media can't just accept the fact that the U.S. is helping to spruce up a Scottish NATO air base, they have to project a cold war era conspiracy into the mix. When you consider that Obama gave 1.7 billion in U.S. dollars and euros to Iran and got nothing for it but a lame promise, repaving runways in a NATO air base seems like a pretty good investment.

    More evidence of Russian collusion.

    Satellite technology has done the work of tracking submarines for the last couple of decades but the stodgy old U.K. "experts" prefer to live in the good old days of the Cold War. No wonder we had to save them from speaking German.
