    France has postponed a deal to deliver two advanced warships to Russia. French President Francois Hollande said Wednesday that Russia's intervention in eastern Ukraine meant conditions were not right to complete the delivery. France faces a huge bill for halting the contract. And as Henry Ridgwell reports from the Saint-Nazaire shipyard, where the vessels are under construction, there is local anger at the potential fallout.

    You have to feel sorry for the folks losing there jobs. That being said NATO countries under no circumstances can they aid what most certainly appears to be the enemy.
    We can continue to whistle past the graveyard until the real war breaks out, our we can resist with all our power to stop the attempt to rebuild the Soviet Union.
    This is not a game to Putin. This is a "strategy" that so far seems to be working.
    What will be our strategy seems to be know only by a very few if anyone at all.

    Will France have the wear withal to stop the potentially lucrative deal? Knowing their past I doubt it, but still I have my hopes!

    France....does anyone really take them in a serious fashion? Are they part of Texas or Mexico? I hear they sell military fire arms... never shot... only dropped once. Hmmm....

    When you go to the polls in November, remember that Obama, the DACA crowd, La Raza, and the pro illegal lobby are:

    • Offering a repeat of failed policies (definition of insanity)
    • Valuing illegals above lawful immigrants and US citizens.
    • Taking your hard earned tax dollars and social security contributions and using them for illegals.
    • Undermining the middle class by allowing illegals to undercut their wages and steal their jobs.
    • Rewarding criminals, who knowingly lied and cheated.
    • Destroying your kids’ financial futures.
    • Blatantly discriminating against prospective lawful immigrants by blocking and displacing them from entry and jobs.
    • Undermining our laws and border security.
    • Bringing in hazardous diseases risking your health.
    • Encouraging a wide open southern border with a continual invasion of illegals, dragging the US economy down to that of their native countries.

    It's your choice - you know what is right and wrong.
    Vote all pro illegal candidates out of office in Nov.
