Russian Bombers Practice Nuclear Attacks on USA

It looks like conservatives aren’t the only ones to notice that a country that would tolerate the “leadership” of someone like Obama is losing the will to live and may no longer be fit to defend itself:

Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.

The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.

Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United States and NATO.

Yet Obama and his pet media guffawed when Romney identified Russia as a major threat to our security.

The Tu-95 is a nuclear-capable bomber that is outfitted with six AS-15 nuclear-armed cruise missiles. The missiles have a range of over 1,800 miles.

Google Earth analysis reveals that a Tu-95 launch box located in the Labrador Sea and firing AS-15 missiles would be in range of Ottawa, New York, Washington, and Chicago, and could reach as far south as the Norfolk Naval base.

This is far from an isolated incident.

Last month, at least 16 bomber incursions by the Russians took place within the northwestern U.S. and Canadian air defense zones over a period 10 days. It was the largest number of incursions since the end of the Cold War.

Other recent incidents include two Russian Bear bombers flying within 50 miles of California in June.

Don’t worry. I’m sure the Bitter Half will hold off Putin with another inspirational hashtag campaign while Obama plays golf or knocks Stonehenge off his bucket list.

A formerly dominant nation is a scary place to live during its self-imposed decline.
