    This is no time for singularism, there is not one issue here, but many the primary being the commander in chief's understanding of the military consequences of screwing with a duly elected government within the Russian sphere of influence. FFS the Obama administration is on tape bragging about the CIA "gluing this thing together" as rioting and death spread across Kiyv.

    It is preposterous now that both the White House and the US military seemed shocked by the re-action; Putin warned Bush he would "tear her apart" if the Us messed with Ukaine, and now he has. What is so shocking to everyone about that? Or did Obamaland buy it's own hype that Obama had a clue.

    Now we have a general responsible for the security of the whole nation seemingly shocked, shocked I tell you, that Russian war planes would dare challenge the skies in other areas; not send a signal that said "Mr. Obama, the Kremlin is serious. We want our country back...stay out of it."

    The White House seemed to think Putin would close the Olympics without his cherished gold medal in men's hockey and ignore the "regime change" on his doorstep.

    One again, arrogance, only this time it brought us to the brink of all out warfare.

    Unless it's a probe, to see what they can get away with.

    The Japanese didn't engage the Enola Gay, because, "what's one lone airplane going to do?"

    You are aware of the Air Force drag queens performing on U.S. Air Force bases ? I **** you not.
    Sorry but I am not going to take your word on that, either you have proof in this case or you don't. Sounds like you just want to make **** up about this case and that's all I need to know.

    Seems to me they have standing orders for this sort of thing.

    That's your reason why we wouldn't shoot them down? Did you want to try again?

    The Russians aircraft are in international airspace. It's nothing more than Putin sending a message to Obama that he's a pantywaist while flipping Obama the bird and at the same time the Russian aircraft are gathering intelligence watching what our response is, what fighters are scrambled, what air defense radars are activated what frequencies are being used listening to what is being said. They do it we do it. It's a typical Cold War snoop and poop mission.

    If you remeber on the day of Obama's State of the Union address to Congress in 2013 Putin did the same thing when Russian bombers circled Guam three times. Putin picked that day when the entire American government would be sitting in the Capitol building as sending a message to Obama that while Obama is playing checkers, Putin is playing chess and the Russian bear is no longer in hibernation. That from now on Russia is a world power and don't for get it.

There's plenty of evidence to prove they've all done it in the past and in some cases long before the public (or our intelligence agencies) even knew they were their. What makes this recent Russian sortie interesting is they hadn't tried in over 20 years. So, Russia's starting to "stretch their legs". The question the Joint Chiefs need to start asking themselves is "how do we stop it before things get out of hand?" My :2cents: worth:

    1) increase surface/air surveillance in the Pacific and Atlantic.

    2) Send a couple of our fighter-bombers to zip right up to the edge of Russia's airspace...see how they like it.
    I agree. Increase our presence in the Pacific. No need to take our bombers on a joy ride up the side of Russia. Other than that, doesn't our military have enough stuff going on?
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
