Should the US respond with a closer flight or would that simply be poking a bear that seems very much awake once again?

What should we make of this?
How about, Stay the # away from the Russian Coast.
You would be spewing flaming tar if a Russian reconnaissance Jet was flying anywhere near the US. International waters, or not both aircraft have a right to be there. Both Aircraft are an implied threat, and yes a reconnaissance aircraft is a threat. That aircraft is a key step into a larger scale attack, the interceptor is a defensive aircraft, protecting it's airspace, and home land.
The US is pushing Russia, pretty damn hard as of late.
