Russian Bombers Conduct Over 16 Incursions Into US Air Defense Zones in 10 Days


What happens when you show the world you’re an empty suit willing to be “flexible?”

This:

Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones over the past 10 days, an unusually sharp increase in aerial penetrations, according to U.S. defense officials.

The numerous flight encounters by Tu-95 Russian Bear H bombers prompted the scrambling of U.S. jet fighters on several occasions, and come amid heightened U.S.-Russia tensions over Ukraine.

Also, during one bomber incursion near Alaska, a Russian intelligence-gathering jet was detected along with the bombers.

What’s Obama going to do about it?

Seriously. The whole world knows he’s the modern day version of Neville Chamberlain, just with less testosterone or willingness to act.

I suppose he could warn Putin about the incursions.

But maybe this is normal. Kind of a “nothing to see here” kind of thing:

A defense official disagreed with the spokeswoman on the increased bomber forays. Russian strategic nuclear forces appear to be “trying to test our air defense reactions, or our command and control systems,” said an official familiar with reports of the incursions.

“These are not just training missions,” the official added.

Perfect.

Great time for him to go on vacation for a couple weeks, huh?
