There is not going to be a war.
There never was going to be a war.
Vladimir Vladimirovich got everything he wanted within the first 48 hours.
He secured Russia’s Crimean base.
He scared the shit out of the new Ukrainian leaders.
He got John Kerry to look like a pompous ass.
And he taught Obama the value of learning how to play a balalaika.
St. Petersburg rules.
This is a photograph of the “Third Army Band” (61st AGF Band) passing in review upon the occasion of the return of General George S. Patton, Jr. from his triumphal tour of the United States in 1945.
The bandleader, Chief Warrant Officer Gregorio A. Diaz, wrote a march honoring Gen. Patton and the soldiers of the Third Army earlier in 1945. The march was filed away for 70 years, was recently rediscovered, and has been recorded by the United States Army Band.
