A BIPARTISAN STRIKE by Solomon Islands-based pirates and Australian fighter aircrafts on the Russian warships in the Coral Sea was executed this afternoon.

– German newspaper Die Spiegel was the first to report that Australia may be at a de-facto state of war with the Russian Federation.

– The Hawaii-based US Pacific fleet has been order to “crash sail” to the Coral Sea in an effort to prevent any conflict from starting.

– Two US Ohio-class submarines are believed to be already operation in the area and have shadowed the Russian fleet since they left port on October 23.

However, the Australian media has remained dormant on the crisis.

The RAAF F/A 18 Super Hornets opened fire with warning flares after two of the Russian boats crossed deliberately in to our sovereign waters.


Solomoni pirates have attacked a Russian supply vessel with the objective of capturing food and medical equipment after the current Abbott government cut their aid funding.

No Australian casualties have been record in the operation but it is confirmed that a great swathe of pirates have been killed in the first wave of the assault.

It’s understood by intelligence analysts that the pirates were ill-equipped to take on the Russian ship, which has lead to a significant amount of Solomoni deaths.

An aircraft charted by ABC News was also mistakenly fired upon by the pirates but it’s been confirmed they failed to hit the Beechcraft Baron.

Unconfirmed reports have also surfaced suggesting that the pirates were distracted by the ABC news crew, which led them to being slaughtered mercilessly by Russian sailors.

Three RAN Collins-class submarines set sail from HMAS Platypus in Sydney last night and are scheduled to arrive in the Coral Sea by the end of the week.

Minister for Defence, David Johnston is adamant that escalation is the right step to take.

“I’m a firm believer in matching aggression with aggression,” says Senator Johnston.

“The Russian navy has never been tested in modern warfare,”

“The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) has been at war with people smugglers and dope pedlars for decades,” says Senator Johnston.

“We’ve got the upper hand.”

Defence analysts have also outlined that the diesel-electric submarines still used by the RAN also have an edge over their Russian counterparts.

“The Collins-class has duped the US Navy many times in past war games,” says Captain Gary Housey of the US Naval College.

“They run super quiet but their range is pretty bad,”

“I’m expecting a few Russian cruisers to end up being part of that there great reef of theirs.”

PM Tony Abbott says everything will be OK as long as we keep a dialogue open with Moscow.

Prime minister Tony Abbott says his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin is still frosty, despite the two leaders having private talks this morning on the banks of the Brisbane River.

“We’re trying to find a peaceful end to the bloodshed in the Coral Sea,” says Mr Abbott.

“But it sure doesn’t help the situation when your only tangible ally in this whole thing jumps the gun and attacks a warship in tinny,”

The Russian president has refused to comment on the growing crisis and journalists who attempted to question Mr Putin are turning up face down in Moreton Bay.

Should diplomacy fail, the Australian and Russian fleets are expected to meet on the weekend, which would trigger the first all-out naval battle since 1982.

Not since the sinking of the ARA General Belgrano by HMS Conqueror during the Falklands War has there been a full-scale naval conflict.

“We’re trying to avoid that at all costs,” says Mr Abbott.

“The Minister for Defence is also trying to mentally shirt-front Mr Putin so don’t take anything he says with a grain of salt.”

    lol for starters Subs haven’t been based in Sydney since 1999 when HMAS Platypus was shut down. So why would subs sail from Sydney when they are based in Western Australia? lol get your facts together what a shambles

    Strange nothing of this matter of a face of with Aussie and Russian warships of the cost of Queensland other then Russian warships sailing into international waters close to Australia with 3 Australian warships monitoring them, Russia wouldn’t dare fire on Australian warships in Australian waters as Australia would have the upper hand having unlimited support from the ADF and allied countries, Russia is strong on Russian soil, in Asia and Australian region Russia wouldn’t stand a chance even if Russia sent their entire fleet, Japanese learnt this lesson during world war two.

      I agree and if the Russian fleet attacked, they would have Australia’s allies surrounding them completely, therefore initiating the ultimate surrender for Russia

    Hi, Leeroy and Nathan, it is NOT a 1. April, but fun can be any date.
    Russian sailors are on strict diet by Putin’s order, thats mean Melanesian canibal pirates did not profiting much from theirs action. Also RAN cannot use ancient russian warships, only use for them is scutling in the Barrier Reef for amateurs divers.
    No worries mate, everything will be all right !

    Pentagon scared modernization of military equipment Russia
    December 5, 2014

    Representatives of the US Air Force stated that the Pentagon fears the progress of military equipment in Russia. This writes the American edition of The Daily Beast. The article states that “The Pentagon is concerned that Russia is now able to shoot down the vaunted American fighters with the technology” stealth “.

    “Missiles used on the F-22 will not be able to hit the enemy plane, thanks to the new system for jamming enemy” – the author writes.

    Russia and China have improved system jamming technology of digital storage and playback frequency (DRFM). It receives the signal coming from the radar, and returns it to the sender, interfering with other means of detection.

    “We, the United States, for a number of years, not engaged in the development of appropriate techniques to counter attack by electronic means” – says a senior official US Air Force.

    The Americans may have significant difficulties in the confrontation with the Russian fighters, the author writes material, as much Russian progress in modernization and equipping of the Armed Forces of his technique. At the same time, the US has weapons of date and specialists call it the Achilles heel of the US Army.

    It is also known that Russia develops missile range and has extremely superior to any other of this parameter.

    “There is information that Russia was developing weapons with an extremely high range of hitting the target: missile air-to-air long-range K-100 are able to” shoot “any existing such missiles, including those armed with the multipurpose fighter of the fifth generation F-22″ Raptor ” the most advanced US military aircraft, “- said another interviewee The Daily Beast from the US military.

    I oppose Putin because he has stolen billions from the Russian people, lied consistently over the past year, caused death to thousands in Ukraine and misery to millions and has set in stone a gangster state in Russia. He opposes everything progressive in the world.
    I wish only good things for Russia. I just wish they would get a decent government for a change. With all Russia’s natural resources, there is no reason why ordinary people in Russia should not have some of the best standards of living in the world.
