All the Russians have is huff and puff......Really they have little else to bring to the table. If we do enter cold war 2.0 they will go bankrupt in short order and break up even further. And before any pro-Russia poster say......Well the west is having huge economic issues also.....YES we are.



Problem is Russia is on the edge when it comes to cost of living when the cost of food reaches 40% of disposable income revolutions tend to happen. Russia is at 35% and still rising fast. The US is at 15% and also rising but slowly as this huge amount of wealth is sucked out into bankers pocket.



Bottom line is you do not need to run faster than the bear......Just the other guy.

It's interesting to see the disparity in the stories.

The US claims they got extremely close, the Russians say they didn't, and the SU-27 made multiple passes.

Russia claims that it flew towards their border with no transponder, FR24 tweeted it had transponder on, including identifier, tail number, and call sign, although they didn't say whether it was on the entire mission.

The multiple passes is interesting, because when two aircraft are capable of flying the same speed there is no reason for multiple passes. The fighter can move up from the rear, get the tail number and any other identifying marks and stay bedside them in one pass.

Claiming it had the transponder off, if it did, is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Russian aircraft have raised concerns flying near other borders without a transponder, making them almost impossible to be tracked by ATC.

Russians are crazy bastards (just watch some youtube videos of their trucks crossing rivers )...and yes I think vodka has something to do with it. But can we really blame them for telling us to get the hell outa there. I understand it was international airspace...but if we have the technology to gather info on them from there and pass it along...then I don't blame them for being pissed. As we all know "All is fair in love and war".


It might be the zom polite with a pistol to their head that makes them drink a lot of vodka and act crazy. BTW, they gather intel by flying down our coast as well but we still observe the law.

What we need to do is have a F-22 lurking near by that the Su-27 can't see and just watch the Russian pilot's a**hole fall out when he is locked up by the F-22. Then we'll see how crazy the Russian gets with the RC-135.

I understand that a B-52 going to Guam, while China wanting to expand it's airspace, was challenged and was threatened with intercept and shoot down. The pilot replied that he was a flight of five. A B-52 and four F-22s...the frequency went silent.
