Oh…oh no! LOL!

But don’t worry, America still has the biggest d*ck on the block and can whoop China’s, Russia’s and Iran’s collective asses with one hand tied behind its back just by swinging it around with the other hand. I wonder if the delusional “just nuke 'em” warmongers have gotten the memo yet.

A different kind of problem for the Boeing 787 – which is a nice plane, by the way; seemingly profitable too. Apparently it has fallen victim to the US/NATO proxy war against Russia.
Sanctions on Russia adding to Boeing’s woes – WSJ — RT World News

"Boeing is experiencing problems with the production of its 787 Dreamliner wide-body airliners due to the lack of a key component caused by US sanctions on Russia, the Wall Street Journal has reported.
