6. They probably never could, they just can't sustain the cover-up anymore

I don't believe the official numbers out of China, Russia, Iran, and the other countries with authoritarian governments

4. Russian military training usually doesn't start until May,

with exercises later in summer.

Spring must have come early.

7. The utlimate readiness exercise - reality

Glad to see they're keeping *cough* right on top of this . . . .
