US fighter jets intercept Russian bombers near Alaska
« on: April 18, 2017, 05:13:00 PM »
The U.S. military dispatched two F-22 stealth fighters late Monday to intercept a pair of Russian bombers near Alaska, according to a Pentagon official.

The official told The Washington Examiner Tuesday the Air Force's jets visually identified the Russian vehicles as TU-95 "Bear" long-range bombers.

The American jets briefly flew alongside the Russian bombers before the bombers changed course and flew away from the U.S.

Russia has been doing this for years, testing the US defences. The US does the same to Russia as well.  IMO, nothing really sinister, it's just each side doing it's job to test the other side.

Sorta, but things seem to be heating up.     Let's hope Trump doesn't decide to send a message with a bomb  to N.K.

Trump is erratic enough to just do this..

He's erratic, egotistical, but not stupid, nor are those who work behind the scenes. A war with NK is all bluster and a big game of global poker. It would be bad for everyone, so other ways of controlling KImJ, are in the works.
