“Unsinkable” American Aircraft Carriers: Five Nonsensical Statements

Source: http://rusvesna.su/news/1509906530 Translated by Eugenia Recently, the American journal The National Interest published an article with a telling title: “5 Reasons Russia and China Might Not Be Able to Sink a U.S. Aircraft Carrier”(http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/5-reasons-russia-china-might-not-be-able-sink-us-aircraft-22471?page=2).

While we watched the fake American civil war

On September 1st, the scary Antifa groups and the Black Blocs that burned American flags, toppled monuments, screamed and beat other crisis actors with long sticks, all had vanished without a trace.
