Russia’s New Dolphin Navy Is No Match for Our Dolphin Navy


If you are concerned that Russia’s acquisition of the Ukrainian military’s elite dolphin attack squad could spell the end of America’s reign as the most powerful country on Earth, fear not: Not only are we the home of jazz, blue jeans, and the greatest basketball team ever assembled, we also have been training dolphins to fight our wars find and detect sea mines since 1960.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
