There are times when Daddy America just has to remind everyone who runs this world. Some countries get a little too overconfident and we have to humble them back into place. Russia is one of those countries that recently has been trying to swing its dick around, but our dick is totally way bigger than their little frozen chode.
What did we do? Well, we paraded the stars and stripes on military vehicles just 300 yards from the Russian border yesterday — just close enough to let that semi-autistic Putin know that we’re here and we still run this shit.
From the Washington Post:
U.S. military combat vehicles paraded Wednesday through an Estonian city that juts into Russia, a symbolic act that highlighted the stakes for both sides amid the worst tensions between the West and Russia since the Cold War.
The armored personnel carriers and other U.S. Army vehicles that rolled through the streets of Narva, a border city separated by a narrow frontier from Russia, were a dramatic reminder of the new military confrontation in Eastern Europe.
The reason for the parade was to celebrate Estonia Independence Day. Narva just happens to be a very vulnerable target for Russia if it were to expand the conflict with the West into NATO territory. Nothing like a little American presence from the U.S. Army’s Second Cavalry Regiment to give them the hint to nip that idea in the bud.
This isn’t the first time we’ve done this, either. Back in November, we rolled through the streets of Riga, Latvia, for its Independence Day celebration. If Putin doesn’t realize it by now, he should know that America is the one with the big swinging dick in the world, and we’ll remind you of it..
