Uh oh, Putin is tearing his head!
 
2017-04-18 02:25:32 PM  
So this is a repeat from every single year since like 1950.
 
2017-04-18 02:27:44 PM  
Rears his head.
 
2017-04-18 02:42:26 PM  
The American pilots then flew upside down over the Russian plane and flipped them off. Highway to the Danger Zone played and then war.

And as usual, our feckless commender in chief will do nothing. The man has no fecks. SAD.

Honestly, the man is seventy.  It's hard to feck at that age.

We shall send 100 red balloons in response.

/Oh darn, 1 popped

The suction when Bristol spreads her legs will suck those jets right out of the sky.

Maybe they wanted to see that beautiful cake Trump promoted so much.  He made it sound delicious.
 
2017-04-18 03:24:34 PM  
They were just checking out their property. I don't know what the big deal is.
 
2017-04-18 03:26:23 PM  
Oh noes, Ruskies came within 82 miles of US airspace! (Big Yawn). Also, it's Fox News trying to stir up viewers (second yawn).

The bombers in question. Contemporary of the B-52, but not as high tech. Run in fear, citizens.

I was going to joke about Diomede or the Aleutians or some other Alaskan fringe, but 100 miles from Kodiak is really damn central.

Note that Kodiak itself is about 99 miles across at its longest point.

Meh. They talk up their nukes all the time because they understand we will crush them in a conventional war.
 
2017-04-18 03:27:59 PM  
Very symetric response to airport bombing
 
2017-04-18 03:28:14 PM  
This happens all the time. How is this scary?
 
2017-04-18 03:28:23 PM  
And so our little game begins anew.

Putey still your best bud, Donnie?

  I just saw a plane that looked like that following the ridge line here in middle of  Washington state.

dittybopper: So this is a repeat from every single year since like 1950.


Year?

This happens about every other week. (with a couple-year hiatus in the 90's)  Russians probe our airspace, Air Force scrambles some jets.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

My office overlooks JBER.  It's easy to tell when the fighters are up there doing training and when they are lighting up to go chase someone off.

It is louder, though.

I wonder why the media would report, with such alarm, something that is a routine activity on virtually all levels? I wonder why they would do that?

Putin and Trump are obviously buddies.
Why else would the Russians do this but to say 'Hello!' to Trump?

Troll the old man.
Russia will play this card all day, Trump won't say a word.

This isn't as common as it was during the cold war, but Russia has continued to do it off and on since.

Why is this being reported? Why OMFG! Fox News, of course. Their viewers eat this stuff with a spoon. They're doing everything they can to get Trumps approval rating up. So we need a lot of enemies for him to keep us safe from. And they must do their bit to help deflect from the Trump-Russia investigations.

No I'm not, for 3 separate reasons:

1.  I served my time already.
2.  I'm to old now, over the 45 year cutoff
3.  Not much use for my specialty right now anyway.
 
2017-04-18 03:48:35 PM  
Remember when things like this were a clear-cut demonstration of the weakness of the president?

Dear Vladimir;

Thank you for your help in getting my defense budget increases.

Well the F-14 has twin stabilizers and the 'Mig' a single, so...things might have a bit cozy?
