This is coolbert:
Finally from WIZARD through Harry at Sharkhunters:
1. "SPAIN vs ENGLAND - - In today's saber rattling between the USA, Russia, North Korea and the Middle East, who could imagine that these two nations would be involved in various face-offs."
NOT MERELY SPAIN VS. ENGLAND. NATO VS. NATO!
"Royal Navy's Gibraltar-based fast patrol boat HMS SCIMITAR was forced to respond to a Spanish warship incursion into Gibraltar waters for the second time in a month. The UK Ministry of Defense confirmed that the Spanish Navy corvette INFANTA CRISTINA was escorted out of Gibraltar waters on Thursday morning."
. . . .
"This is the latest in a row of stand offs between Spain and Great Britain in Gibraltar waters . . . This territory has remained a point of contention between the two countries as Spain never relinquished its claims to the territory."
Also from WIZARD:
2. "BEAR ON THE MOVE - - the Russian Navy is moving some assets out of the Baltic and into the North Atlantic"
"A group of Russia's Baltic Fleet warships comprising the corvettes BOIKIY and SOOBRAZITELNY, the tugboat MB-123 and the tanker KOLA has left for the North Atlantic."
"The group of warships . . . successfully passed through the Kattegat and the Skagerrak straits in adverse weather conditions and entered the North Atlantic."
STRICTLY A TRAINING MISSION AND NOTHING MORE!! WORRY NOT!
Pundonor - - from the Spanish point of honor!
