Russian bathing beauties

Why is the Russian military all out of sorts? Well, this is who works at their version of Hooters - I guess.
The Russian Black Sea fleet is based in the Crimean port at Sevastopol -- as is the Ukrainian fleet. Tension between Russia and Ukraine is growing in the region. Here, Russian women welcome home warships returning from operations off the coast of Georgia during the brief August war.
The more I look at that photo, the more I think it says a lot about Russia right now.

Compare to this.

This post is unprofessional and embarrassing to me as a US Army Cold War vet.  McCain lost partly because he chose the wrong side in the Georgia War. The Ukraine voters just ousted Yushenko largely because he took the wrong side in that war as well. Sevastopol will always be the base of the Russian Navy. Don't think for a second that US Republicans are supposed to be anti-Russian Neocons.

Also, don't think for a second that dating websites that feature gorgeous young Russian women are engaged in any kind of "trafficking" (left wing feminist terminology). Sour grapes is what causes hatred of US males who marry Russian women.

Now most men and women do not age well - this is a sad fact of life. But the theory that slavic women age faster than Anglos and Germanics is mostly a rationalization that older US males make when they are unhappily married at home and know, because of US divorce laws, that they will never be financially qualified to go to the former Soviet Union and marry someone who is beautiful and who would age well. They can look at this photo and lie to themselves that they are happy with the woman next to them.

Also, who the Hell thinks living conditions are bad in Russia? Compared to Texas? You've got to be kidding. 15 years ago there was a lot of anthracite coal pollution in the air, but that is all ancient history. Moscow is now the 3rd most expensive city in the world and, no, beautiful young Russian women are NOT interested in dating or marrying those who don't bother learning the language and history and showing some respect.
