    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.

    How on Earth could a few 50 year old Bear's be a problem? Like they are going to attack.


    This should be obvious.

    The Americans are trying to hurt the Russians so the Russians try and look tough.

    It's just an international urinating contest...nothing more.

    Big deal.
    I wonder if Sarah Palin saw the bombers from her front porch?
