The Tu-160's cannot make a long range round trip on a Lo-Lo-Lo profile, not enough fuel. Engles air base is within radar range of friendly or NATO countries, not to mention satellites, SIGINT etc... Soon as we know one is airborne the US usually launches an AWACS along with fighters, and that's the end of that.

They've never classified intercepts. They used to release pictures all the time of them intercepting Russian planes. You can find them all over the place, because it happened constantly for years.

Yes, but people behind the Western "iron curtain" are trained to see Russians as an eternal evil force, like in "1984". When you mention "russian bomber" reaction is automatic...never fails. Thousands (probably millions) of soldiers (from all countries) in WW II have died with this illusion in their brains..."fighting the enemy".

.....I was born under the dictatorial grip of the Communist Iron curtain, and sorry to tell you that you are wrong... People in Communist countries are indoctrinated since they are children not only to hate Capitalism/Imperialism, but to hate anyone who loves and wants to live in a free Capitalist nation...and of course they are told that all the problems of the world are caused by Capitalism/Imperialism, which many groups infiltrated in western nations, which have been increasing in members from western nations and these people without knowing embrace such ideologies which root are Communism, or True Socialism as some call it.

The United States has been responding to wars that were started by Communist regimes trying to expand Communism worldwide by force, and by brainwashing the ignorant masses... This was never a delusion as some less informed, and less experienced are claiming.

Every single person who has escaped the iron curtain, from any Communist country, and who is not a sleeper cell, which there are quite a few, will tell you the same thing...

Russian officials who left Communist regimes have been talking about a master plan that is coming to fruition...

These former Russian officials, and officials from other Communist regimes who were able to leave those dictatorial regimes have been able to foretell the future simply because the Russian regime, as well as the Chinese came to a conclusion decades ago to unite to take care of Capitalism once and for all, but of course later on they will fight to see who gets control of everything.

The Russians, and the Chinese are supposedly allies, yet not too long ago the Russians sank a Chinese ship they say had "Russian" nuclear armaments and was heading towards the U.S...

The Chinese regime would love for such a Russian bomb to be detonated on U.S. soil, then there would be chaos, the U.S. administration would point the finger to Russia, meanwhile Americans are even more divided as more people claim "it was done by the U.S. government, meanwhile the Chinese government reaps the rewards from such confrontation and further division in the U.S. Hey, what better way to take care of two birds with one stone?

If Russian defectors were wrong, their predictions on the future would have been wrong, yet that is not the case.

I have to chuckle when some people claim there is nothing to these Russian bombers getting so close to Canadian, and U.S. borders, and at times even flying over Canadian and/or U.S. land...

These are not regular exercise, both the Russians, and the Chinese see a war in the future with the U.S. which they say is "inevitable".

Now the Chinese, and the Russians, alongside some other countries have not only been calling for a new world economy, and a new world government of their own, but have been preparing and have been moving their chess pieces for decades, and the King is right now on check, and almost on checkmate. And believe you me, the new Chinese/Russian economy/world power is going to be hell compared to the times when the U.S. was the main world power.

Thats a scary thought Electric Universe! I myself have been following Russian and Chinease military devlopments over the last few years, and I have seen a pattern emerging, and it scares the heck out of me.

Thanks for the note about the Tu 160s and their range. But I may note that one does not have to fly lo lo lo to intercept in a country. One can fly in full observance by air at a high altitude on regular air lanes. Then as they approach their target they do a lo fly and pop up when needed to let loose their payloads.

If you are on the defensive side...this time Canadians probably at a forward would be one a yellow alert as a regular flight takes place that may be a hostile...then it dissapears from radar and you launch first as a search and rescue mindset...then as you approach the target and get on and off telemetry then you approach with hostile intent.

Only then when the target turns away do you move to a calmer perspective.

There would only be minutes between the target going off radar and the possibilty of hostile intent. Hence the rush in the video.

Remember how a blackjack suddenly showed up in Venezuela a few months ago.

All open information and out there...

The Russians are not only testing Canada's and the U.S. response for their bombers flying over Canadian and U.S. airspace. This time they might not have been over anyone's airspace, but several times since 2007 they have done so.

This, together with the fact that the Russians used their old satellite to crash against a new U.S. satellite, should be telling people the Russians are not our friends.

Russia, China, and some other countries have been calling for a new economy not based on the U.S. dollar since at least 2007 also.

Didn't anyone find it a bit strange that after the Iranian government signed contracts with the Russians, and the Chinese for their military defense programs, that the Iranian president was telling everyone the U.S. was soon to fall for about two years before the whole economic crisis?

The economic crisis is in great part to be blamed on bankers, and even on us U.S. civilians for gettings loans people could not pay for houses etc, but in order to make the problem global there must have been other things happening.

The Russians, the Chinese, and the Iranian president among other very far left countries/leaders have been calling for a new world order, and a new economy controlled by the Chinese, the Russian, and some others.

The Chinese own most of the debt of the U.S., they could very well make economic deals to devalue the dollar, which has been happening, and this in turn helps not only the Chinese, but other countries whose main goal is to at first destroy the U.S. economic power, so that they will become the new world powers.

It is too much of a coincidence for all of this to be happening at the same time.

Is it possible that the Iranian president was told by other world powers, such as Russia, and China, that the rule of the U.S. would come to an end soon?

Yes, yes, and yes. Again thanks for outlining the hard realities that have been obscured by so much planted disinformation in the MSM as well as the alternative news sources like this one.

There are tens of thousands of people around here who seriously believe anything and everything except the political confrontation that has been going on non-stop since the early 20th Century.

They realize how their exotic non-issue conspiracy notions, be it Zionist control or UFO hidden technologies, just further deflect from the truth that should be so apparent.

China is a position to request repayment of trillions invested in the American Treasury. When that happens, and it could in a matter of months, the US, Europe, Japan, and dozens of interdependent progressive Westerne conomies collapse.

This is has been coming for decades, as you been pointing out.

But it is too frightening and too close to home to even think about for most people.
