    The comments on the video are just as good as the fireball that occurred when the ship's mag storage blew.

    Putin is telling friends he's willing to negotiate a cease fire.

    Those two are easily the most expensive and hardest to replace aircraft in the Russkie inventory...Not to mention the crewmen who lost their lives over Putin's mad dream of being hailed as the conqueror......Ben

    I highly doubt the crew of the Ivanovets were ardent fans of Putin. Yet, as soldiers do, they died while serving their country.

    I was willing to do the same when I was young. Yet, now that I'm older, I think perhaps us Oldsters should take our Youngster's place. We've lived our lives, and our families are established. We will perish regardless, why not do so for a cause?
