Zionist tanks closing in on Moscow

I don't know what will people like Mearsheimer and Walt make of it, but this time it's more serious than some Israeli lobby and its tentacles. We are talking about (almost) suburbs of the Russian capital. Oryol is a city about 360 km from Moscow, which in Russian terms is a stone throwing distance.

But first of all, this shot:

It depicts the Israeli tank Merkava.

And now a shot of a street scene in Oryol:

The poster in the picture meant to congratulate the Russians with the Army day (February 23) and is contributed by the regional branch of United Russia (the ruling Russian party).

So there.

P.S. The story checks out in many Russian sources, like this one, which adds some details:
... the tank depicted on the banner is indeed the Israeli Merkava Mark 2, and the soldiers belong to the legendary 7th brigade that took part in all Israeli wars.
So we can be reasonably sure it's not a Photoshop job. And another hilarious detail from the same link:
We can thank the party [United Russia] that the banner doesn't show a fascist "Tiger". This is what happened in Kaliningrad.

Go 7th! All the way to Bejing!

So the Russians are now buying the Merkava and hiring the 7th? They are THAT desperate? Who knew?

Congratulations on the IDF's successful campaign to conquer Russia, Snoop. It would have nice if you'd let the rest of us know the invasion was on, though. We could have bought ringside tickets.

Then Russians will have to show a token resistance, there could be victims etc. This way it went quiet, to the point when not a single Russian general was disturbed from his sleep.

Another triumph for the 7th Armored Brigade. I echo Dick, first Moscow and then on to Bejing!

You see us Russians do have the world's best tanks, even if we have to barrow them from Israel! (joke)

We all knew that the IDF was the best small army in the world, but this good! Wow. Never mind Beijing, at this rate, "today Beijing, tomorrow Pyongyang".

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Pyongyang? But why?

SnoopyTheGoon said...

It's a progression, Snoopy: Israeli tanks closing in on Moscow; so, obviously, next stop, Beijing, then...?

Actually, it comes from a line in Brecht's play "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui", where Ui is Hitler played as a small-time crook in Cicero (a small town south of Chicago). Having taken over Cicero, Ui's line is "Today Cicero, tomorrow, Chicago".

This is meant to echo an alleged Hitler quote: "Today, Berlin, tomorrow the world" (or possibly "Today Germany...").

The play was written during Brecht's sojourn in the US during the Nazi period.

Got it, thanks.
