As long as they keep it in their own back yards, I'm good.

Funnily enough, after Russia said it would shoot down / lock on to aircraft west of the Euphrates, the Australians were the first to announce they were suspending their air strikes on Syria.

Hey Chops! Good news! You can relax! Oz already had a change of heart and decided to bomb its backyard again.

So, USAF released pics of "the 5 feet intercept" over the Baltic on Monday ...

Using F-18a's? Silly buggers. Nothing like stirring up a hornets nest.

This morning the 13th Directorate of Moskva Tsentr used a car bomb in Kyiv to take out a top military intelligence officer who was just back from the front, third car bomb assassination in twelve months.



Then a multi-sector cyber attack was launched against Ukrainian:

- Banks (all ATMs with exception of one bank - card payments down across much of retail sector)
- Government (from public-facing offices up to cabinet office and ministers)
- Energy providers (for second time, but on this occassion both at national and regional levels)
- Transportation hubs (inc. Kyiv airport, no electronic payments possible on metro)

A vice prime minister helpfully shared a pic of his computer screen

Airport buggered up

Seems retaliation launched against Rosneft and Bashneft and a couple of others, or could be Ukraine attack is being used as cover for score-settling between Muscovite oligarchs.

Maersk global IT also taken down, probably unwise to piss off Qatar and its newer allies with not inconsiderable cyber attack capabilities. :roll:

Russia has dismissed the Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier as "just a convenient, large maritime target".

That was just a throw away comment made after Fallon ripped the pish out of the Russian carrier. ;)
