#2 It was also unclear whether he meant plus seven degrees or minus seven,

Permit me to venture a guess. Since 7 C is about 45 F, a chilly fall day, I'm gonna go with -7 (19 F). Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be journalists.

#3 We changed our mind, we ain't paying that much, 500 million euro, that's it.

#4 Now the French can play the 'ever increasing costs and delays' game the Russians played on the Indians for the ex-Admiral Gorshkov now INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier. Karma.

#6 I guess they'll just have to assign them to the Black Sea Fleet, it's not good enough for the weather anywhere else.

#7  saying the deal had inflicted harm on the Russian shipbuilding industry

RIA Novosti could have published that one sentence and saved a lot of typing.

#8 This thing about the cold temperatures is complete bogus. The Russians want to cut back on the deal because of internal protests and because they won't get the full amount of technology transfer they were hoping to. Two additional ships were going to be built under French guidance in Russia and the military couldn't handle it.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
