Russian Bombers "honing their skills"....over the Arctic, right off our borders. Why?

We should just go ahead and knock one of these down and get it over with. We had a perfect oppurtunity not long ago when one of them buzzed one of our carriers 2000' off the deck.

This type of sabre rattling is only going to escelate. Sooner or later, some 26 year old gung-ho F-15 pilot will go Postal.

Hahahaha man, man, man that is a seriously funny post. I like your sense of post-ironic humour, that doesn't just reflect the idiocy of the gung-ho attitude of people who you are imitating, but also goes to show how far people would go to promote such alarming and retarded foolishness.

Very good post.

But i doubt, unlike you, some people REALLY want the things you have just mentioned.

As I say hahahahahahaha VERY amusing post.

Not going to happen. Military pilots do not decide when to engage. They are told by ground controllers when they can engage.

I agree the flights occur, but not as frequently as they are lately. Only in the last few months have they escelated, and mostly have gone unnoticed. However, what I've seen happen over the past few weeks, is the attention the Russian Government is giving themselves.

Even this headline is disturbing, and this was this morning:

english.pravda.ru...

Several of the leading Russian news sites have recently shifted their reporting to a 'muscle flexing' attitude.

I personally think bragging about your own capabilities is like picking a fight in the school yard with the litte guy. He's probably going to suprise you one day.

I actually think it's comical that they brag, at least they're showing their hand.

My biggest fear, at the moment, would be understanding why the Iranian VP is visiting N. Korea this week....

Yet it's no big deal when the US hosts massive naval war games off their coast?

Give me a break

One word: Routine

They have been doing it for as long as I can remember. So do we.

The "Bear" is older than most people on this sites parents.

Have fun being scared over nothing. I'm going back to the grown-ups table now...

PEACE
