    The way I see it during the cold war when the USSR and the US did the interceptions and close fly bys and the testing of response and radar/detection systems it was two fairly equal rivals playing with each other. The Iranians are a stinking little mouse who is annoying a full grown Tiger.

    What do you think the Russians would do to them?

    The Iranians do it for the same reason you cry about it: they want to use the military to stroke their manly little egos. Iran's nuclear ambitions are actually of consequence, flying a plane around is irrelevant BS.

    Pssh I've flown over an aircraft carrier in a Cessna. It's one thing to do it in a fast fighter with your own armament, try doing it in something defenseless and slow!

    The USSR would have blasted them out of the sky, period.
