(NBC News)   Russian bombers probed U.S. defenses around Guam at the same time as the president gave his State of the Union Speech. Military officials refused to speculate about the timing, but Russians don't take a dump, son, without a plan   (worldnews.nbcnews.com) divider line 121

Misdirection.  I wonder where the Ruskies were really snooping around.

Russians can't even keep a meteor from exploding over their skies. You know what Russia is? It's a sitting duck, a road apple. Russia is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on Russia.

Dear Russia,

Please stop trying to make Guam happen.

Sincerely,
America

Slow your roll, Russia! What's that? You're flying Bears? My bad. Can't get much slower than that.

Guam has been looking for a fight for years. It's why we shouldn't cut defense.

I am from Russia. What you say Russia weak?

I'm assuming this is why we shot an asteroid at them and Cuba.
 
2013-02-16 09:36:23 AM
In retaliation, Obama fired up the meteor machine. Take that, you dirty Russkies.
 
2013-02-16 09:36:43 AM
This is just to distract the Japanese from the murderous rampage a few days prior.

Oh well, back to the hurricane generator.

I swear the Russians are going to be still using those bombers for 25 years after we finally retire the B-52, simply because they can.

I want to warn the Russians, if they tip over Guam, it will be considered an act of war.

Guam!?

What is this? 1945?
Are they going to disrupt our oil shipments from Australia that don't exist?

Call em and tell em they can fly all over the motherfarker for all we care. It's farking Guam.
 
2013-02-16 09:44:51 AM
I wonder how many American planes were probing Russian defenses at around the same time.  Or Chinese defenses.  Or North Korean defenses.  Etc. etc.

Non-story.

We must not allow a probing gap.

Pretty sure if not serious, but the proper demonym is "Guamanian."  Or "Chamorro," if you're talking about Guam's indigenous people or something specific thereto.

Russians over Guam, a 'vacation' by himself in Hawaii. Something is up.

Would you say it is a rotten structure which only needs a kick in the door to be brought down?

Save states for Final Fantasy don't go back to '85.

Not really. They are completely useless in the winter.

I can't believe they would stop stealing from each other long enough to plan a military action like this.

I hear Russian bombers probed your mom.

Or we could close a military base in a region where we can just as easily use an allies territory and facilities. Like we do when we don't have the option of building stupidly expensive bases just for the sake of it.  In fact we could even encourage other nations to step up to the plate since apparently we are all in this together. (the whole reason everyone loves us doing it, we pay and they don't)

Fark, that would be terrible. The globe would run red and we would rue the day.

GUAM IS VITAL
and my ass is a corn muffin.

Do the Russians have the right to bear bombers?

Is Guam a scandal yet?
 
2013-02-16 10:13:36 AM
Since Vladimir Putin reclaimed the Russian presidency, U.S. officials said the number of such flights in the vicinity of the Aleutian Islands and Alaska have increased, but encounters with U.S. aircraft have remained "generally very professional."

How would the encounters end up less than professional without setting them off? Cutting them off in their air traffic lane? If their Russian road rage videos speak for the masses, then it seems like something even that little could spark a war.

/Yea I know their pilots fark around with us by buzzing our territorial waters, we launch our fighters and escort them back.
 
2013-02-16 10:14:00 AM
If we lose Guam then we will only have 56 more states left.

Yep. I keep forgetting that a lot of Farkers were born after the Cold War. If something like this is making them wet their pants, they would've been nervous wrecks in the '60s, '70s and '80s.

You do know our bases in Guam have been there since just after WWII don't you? They aren't exactly new. One of the reasons there is a continued presence is so that we don't have to build stupidly expensive bases in other countries. Last I knew, we were about to close our expensive base in Okinawa and move that operation to Guam.

Aside from all of that, Guam is a US territory, so we're pretty much obligated to defend it. Or do they not count because brown people live over there?

This is a tactic of pick pockets called misdirection. You wave your hand off in some other direction, on the opposite side of the thing you are stealing. So with russian bombers just flying around guam, the thing being robbed would be washington DC...funny, on the same day the president is giving speeches.

texdent: Is Guam even that vital to us?




It's a military strong point with a harbor and a few airfields that is within support distance of many of our Pacific allies.

Guam.

Without it, it would be more difficult to support any major military operations in the Pacific.
