Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast on Wednesday and were met by U.S. interceptor jets, defense officials told the Free Beacon.
It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks.
An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that a Russian military spokesman said included simulated attacks on “enemy” air defenses and strategic facilities.

So what is the point?
Mutual assured destruction
Did you watch the video? The russian planes were making mock runs against anti ballistic missile sites. I assume that sense the sites can shoot down missiles they would need to bomb them. They did say it has happen three times.
But I do have to agree, that it is not really big news. The U.S and Russians have made thousands of pratice runs with strategic bombers since the 1950's.

So the Guam thing is old, or happened again. Or happens often?
The info page on the second video is dated March 4, 2013.
Medvedev (?sp) sounded to me like the threat of war was only there if Obama continues to override other countries' sovereignty. Like he was telling the US government to stay out of other country's conflicts, and to stop creating conflict in other countries.

That movie is one of my all time favorites. Have you ever seen it?edit on 4-3-2013 by rockymcgilicutty because: (no reason given)
Tests involving command systems and all three components of the nuclear "triad" - land and sea-launched long-range nuclear missiles and strategic bombers - were conducted "under the personal leadership of Vladimir Putin", the Kremlin said.
An RS-12M Topol Intercontinental Ballistic Missile was launched from the Plesetsk site in northern Russia, and a submarine test-launched another ICBM from the Sea of Okhotsk, the Defence Ministry said.
Long-range Tu-95 and Tu-160 bombers fired four guided missiles that hit their targets on a testing range in the northwestern Komi region, it said.

Medvedev was quoted as saying just after the meteor strike that we should be stop fighting among
ourselves over petty differences and come together to fight the Asteroid menace.
Now Fox are claiming he's threatening the US with nuclear attack,
Honestly FOX should be closed down.

Sorry if i didnt make myself clear, an end can mean many different things, it can be an end physically of this world and its creatures like it has before with the extinction of the dinosaurs and other plant life, or it could also be an end of a thought processes that trigger these destructive tendencies. Either way there will be an end just as there was before....time itself is cyclical and we are just one small beacon in an infinite sea of light. You must think universally as opposed to globally cause if there are gods, angels or beings that wish us well and want whats best for us who is to say we aren't just one of their creations in a giant universe of other life forms that deserve attention too?
King James Version (KJV)
16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
[C10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
