    Russia Fires Warning Shots at British Warship in Black Sea

    Russia Fires Warning Shots at British Warship in Black Sea

    WW3 here we come.

    I guess war has always been a choice coming out of a depression. Gets the masses in line.

    Under the Montreux Convention, British warships should not be in the Black Sea.

      From the article:

      A Su-24 aircraft dropped four bombs in waters near the Royal Navy destroyer H.M.S. Defender and a border patrol ship fired its gun to divert it after the British vessel entered Russia’s territorial waters off Crimea and refused to heed radio warnings
      What would we have done if it had been our territorial waters?

      Why are we doing this?
      Whatever...

            A bit busy right now to read the news, so please tell me that British Warship followed standard procedure in such cases and destroyed whole of Soviet Black Sea Fleet.

              Not permanently, but there is allowed tonnage for a period of time, so they do rotation.

              Soon Turkey will dig new canal which will not be subject to the Montreux Convention.

                Fake news angle:

                According to Russia’s Ministry of Defense, the British naval ship entered the country's territorial waters at 11:52am local time and traveled 3km inside the frontier, near Cape Fiolent, in Crimea. The peninsula is not recognized by the United Kingdom as Russian land and London believes it to be illegally occupied Ukrainian territory.

                  According to R4 news report the British say nothing was directly fired at them. The Ruskies were doing manoevers and shots were fired as part of those rather than because we were infringing on their right to identify as owners of the area.

                    British Warship should have expected that and should have returned fire (and shoot down aircraft that was dropping bombs in its path), plus mass arrests of oligarch's money in London and all British dependencies where they hide their money.

                    Now that would have been appropriate, proportional response.
