I agree. Of course they are preparing, just like everyone else is and has been for several years. On occasion I think to test the equipment you have
is a wise move. With the ever growing US war machine marching on and invading countries at will, it is a good idea to be on the ready.
Don't agree on this assessment. While I do agree on that the aircraft are not a direct threat ... it is however a puzzle in the game, because if you
wanted to test others "equipment". You'd do that, by sending in "observers" onto the battlefield, where the US is doing some fighting. This is what
both sides did, during conflicts, in the cold war. Each picked a side, then sent observers to observe how their equipment did and how the
countermeasures were with the other side.
The only use of letting fighter bombers fly over US soil, is not to test equipment ... but to test reaction. Not military reaction, because you
already knew that part. But to test "official" and "public" reactions.
The US did the same with N-Korea. They sent US bombers over Korea, nuclear capable, and Kim Il Jung, peed in his pants and the reaction was enormous.
It's "this" reaction, they are monitoring ... the message is "you wanna go this far?" ... "wanna play chicken?". And the reaction on the public
scene, is what gives them the answer. Scrambling of fighter jets is assumed, and their flying time to the target is irrelevant.
