NORAD: Fighter jets scrambled after Russian bombers spotted off California

Authorities say two F-22 fighter jets were scrambled after a pair of Russian bombers were spotted 50 miles off the coast of California earlier this week, Reuters reported, citing a NORAD spokesperson.
Major Beth Smith, of North American Aerospace Defense Command, said that the long-range Russian bombers never officially entered U.S. airspace when two NORAD fighter jets made visual contact with them.
The incident occurred about five hours after four Russian bombers and a refueling tanker were seen entering the so-called Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), airspace that extends about 200 miles from the U.S. coast. The Russian aircraft left the ADIZ after being identified by two fighters from the Alaskan NORAD region, Smith said.
Smith said the Russian planes' flight appeared to be part of a routine training mission, which Russian aircraft have carried out dozens of times in recent years in the ADIZ.

We told you asshats this would happen.

You believed Bush and his idiot VP that invading Iraq was a good idea for Iraq.

Far more Iraqi's have died due to American interference and war than Saddam ever killed.

And Saddam could control his nation from terrorists, he killed terrorists before they became a problem.

Compare that to the Gov't that Bush installed.

Now you will all whine that Obama didn't save Iraq.

We lost Iraq in 2003, when Bush invaded.

Okay...just stopped by to remind all you RWNJ's to just STFU about what's happening in Iraq. As we all told you....nationbuilding in the middle of a hotbed of hundreds of years of religious and ethnic warfare ain't gonna work.
You got no creds.
Wish saying I told you so made any of this easier to accept but it doesn't.
Very, very sad for lots of people and this once great nation.

U.S. weighs Iraq airstrikes, Obama says he won't send combat troops
By Barbara Starr and Tom Cohen, CNN
updated 12:19 PM EDT, Fri June 13, 2014
NEW: U.S. aircraft carrier heading to the Persian Gulf, source says
U.S. airstrikes could prove ineffective, planners say
ISIS lacks bona fide targets, could disperse fighters among civilians
[Adds breaking news update 12:11 p.m.]
President Barack Obama said Friday that the United States "will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq," but that he would be reviewing a range of other options to support the Iraqi government against a sweeping advance by militant fighters. Obama said unless Iraq fixes its internal political problems, short-term military help from the United States won't make much difference.
Obama added that any decision on U.S. military support for Iraq "is going to take several days," adding that "this is not going to happen overnight."
Obama also said the United States is not going to get involved militarily again in Iraq without assurances that the government there is working toward a political solution.
[Original story moved at 11:49 a.m.]
Momentum toward U.S. military support for Iraq's struggling government increased Friday, with Ses intended to slow the progress of militants and help the Iraqi military regain its equilibrium.
How can Obama counter ISIS threat? Iraq desperate for options against ISIS ISIS dividing Iraq along ethnic lines Obama: Not 'ruling out anything' on Iraq
"We have already taken some immediate steps, including providing enhanced aerial surveillance support to assist the Iraqis in this fight," Kerry said. "We have also ramped up shipments of military aid to Iraq since the beginning of the year."
Meanwhile, the United States plans to move the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush into the Persian Gulf in coming hours to provide Obama with options for possible airstrikes, a U.S. official told CNN on Friday, adding the move did not mean a final decision had been made.
No U.S. ground troops for now
While Obama said Thursday that his national security team was looking at "all options," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that ground troops weren't being contemplated for now.
ISIS fighters have seized Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, as part of an advance toward Baghdad that gave them control of large parts of the country's northern area.
Calls for American air strikes have increased in Washington, but U.S. military planners trying to find a way to help Iraq fend off the militant fighters are worried that such attacks could prove futile, several officials told CNN.
Among other complications, U.S. officials don't have good intelligence about where militants are. Even if they did, the militants don't have the type of targets -- command and control centers, air defense sites, military bases -- that lend themselves to aerial attacks, the officials said on condition of not being identified.
Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a war veteran and critic of Obama administration policy in Iraq, told CNN on Friday that air strikes "are certainly something that should be considered, but I would point out that air strikes are not easy."
You're the fool who said he shouldn't help Syrian rebels. Now you think he should help a corrupt Gov't in Iraq that obviously does not have the suppport of it's own military, which is running away and abandoning all the weapons America gave them.

The Iraqi Gov't is a failure. It's th eGov't that Bush lsft in place. DUH

This invasion of Iraq is a result of the Syrian rebellion.

All goes back to Bush's stupidity in 2003.

“[L]ooking out as I was speaking to [the illegal immigrants] and then shaking their hands, and giving them hugs and high-fives and all the things that kids do on a graduation, I thought to myself: How could we not want to invest in these kids?”

Translation: How can I not do everything in my power to turn them into left wing democrats?

Child Immigrant Facility Tour Won't Let Congressmen Take Pictures, Ask Questions

From: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Sent to members of Congress and staff by Rose Hacking, of the office of the assistant secretary of legislation at HHS, the invitation comes with the following commands:

No recording devices will be allowed (We may ask you to leave your cellphone in our vehicle)

No questions will be allowed during the tour, but questions will be addressed later

No interacting with staff and children at the shelter
We will provide photos of the facility after the tour

During the tour,”the tour guide will detail what goes on from room to room and the services youth are provided on a daily basis,” the email invitation reads.

But one congressional staffer invited to tour the facility called the planned tours “a dog and pony show.”

“Don’t talk to anyone, don’t record anything you might happen to see, but come visit us and we’ll give you a sanitized story with only the photos and accounts we want you to have,” said the staffer, who requested anonymity.
