Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

My guess is that they will have plenty of time to study the frozen north - in Siberia.

Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

This story has all the key elements for maximum trolling. Environmentalists, guns, communists, climate change, big oil, "do gooders" violating "laws", etc.

So much potential. So much.

Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

Particularly if they were anchored at the time, or the Russian are making them anchor...

Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

Freaking hilarious Target... is there an award here for that?
David... well they can at least get a personal concert from Pussy Riot.
Mad, Ol' Putin , skunk that he is, is in the process of bringing back the gulag. I have been busted here in the U.S. for this kind of thing and that really amounts to just a PITA but...

Those who have been arrested must be terrified. I appreciate GPs role as a countervailing force but there are so many potential targets. On the other hand, just how does light get shed on the bad-actors in the drilling game. Noble sacrifice for a cause or foolishness? Always a fine line...

Just though I'd do some trolling of my own...

Perhaps the town of Oriental needs to switch to the Russian coast guard

"Earlier this morning, the Russian Coast Guard announced the creation of a 4 nautical mile ‘exclusion zone’ around the Geolog Dmitry Nalivkin, preventing the activists from obtaining clear images of the vessel."

Anyway its only an " inspection" mind you its only " Russia"

Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

Detaining and threatening to shoot Green Peace Activists who were just out for a walk and ended up on a Russian Oil Platform.

I bet they were snow blind and had no idea they were on a Oil Rig... They probably thought they had just climbed an iceberg...

And of course the Green Peace Ship they had taken a walk-about from didn't realize it had actually entered Russian Territorial Waters because no one had put up a floating sign indicating they were in Russia.

Why would Russian get excited over that

I hear that John McCain is enroute to intervene. Seems he likes his face appearing in Pravda.

Re: Russians board Arctic Sunrise!

Typical multilevel joke, published in russian media

(St.Petersburg is long rivalry of Moscow, they change Capitol status, depending on the epoch)
(Dog looks like Putin)
