Omen of oncoming obsequies...

From Marcus at Harry's Place: "In the Navy". "Have a look at this clipping from January 2009.
"Russia has decided to establish naval bases in Libya, Syria and Yemen within a few years, a Russian military official was quoted as saying on Friday by Itar-Tass news agency...“It is difficult to say how much time it will take to create the bases for our fleet in these countries, but within a few years this will be done without question"
Gives a new twist to the Arab Spring; not so close to home it may also be getting Hugo a bit nervous what with a strategic bomber base, joint manoeuvres plus gold and uranium...what say 2012, mi pana primavera?

Update:...and loans to buy weapons.

P.S. I know that last bit isn't grammatically correct!
