Sarah Palin is probably having a stroke right about now. (we could only hope)

But I'm not too worried about this...Russia has to flex it's muscles to us and the world...they're no better than North Korea.

I wouldn't mind taking a 60 ton tank around and empty desert let alone a city street!!! That would be a dream come true! But without hurting anyone of course!!!

Ofcourse you don't want to hurt anyone and you don't want it to end like it did for this guy.

Hay,when and if the SHTF here in the U.S. would be the prime opportunity to forfill a few crazy fantasy,s.I've never had a problem turning a bad situation into fun.Just got to keep your head.

From a wiki entry, this does seem to happen a lot. I had assumed the Russian's would be showing off a newer bomber.
Yes I know we still fly the B-52.

Tupolev Tu-95



* 27 January 2009 — Two Tu-95 flew patrol over the Arctic Ocean and near Alaska. They were accompanied by four USAF F-15 fighters for about 10 minutes.[35]

* 4 February 2009 — Two Tu-95MS were intercepted by two RDAF F-16 fighters when approaching Danish airspace.[36]
