    WTF???


    From Barbara Starr, CNN Pentagon Correspondent
    updated 10:56 AM EDT, Sun August 3, 2014


    The U.S. plane had been flying in international airspace, conducting an electronic eavesdropping mission on the Russian military, when the Russians took the unusual action of beginning to track it with land-based radar.

    So now we tuck tail and run when we are in IA??? Puti must be LHAO...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    In the plane's defense...you're talking about a Boeing 707...not exactly the most nimble aircraft in the world.

    IIRC their standard operating procedure when painted by a radar is to either hide in the nearest cloud bank or tuck tail and run.

    Ok, I was not aware of that SOP but the pilot should still have
    told the Russki to fuck off.

    The pilots are smart enough to know who our CINC is right now...they know if they do that and get shot down he'd do nothing to rescue them or avenge their deaths.

    No cold war huh?

    Russian subs are trolling our coast, plans on building naval bases in Cuba and Venezuela breaking treaties on nuclear testing, etc.

    Nope, no cold war there....
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    Should have been escorted by an F-16CJ and an F-22 ... let them do any necessary talking.

    With Obama demonstrating weakness and indecisiveness all over the globe, it's pretty natural for Vlad to see how far he can push our people and allies around.

    Just like he's done nothing for that Sgt down in the Mexican jail. O has selective compassion and it sure isn't for the military.

    IMO the only one he has any compassion for is himself.

    I'm not sure he knows the word 'compassion' or has any idea what it might mean.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
