The news services relted photogrpahs of the turbo prop bombers. It looks alike a wheelchair flying over the Pacific, you could shoot it down in no time. They can't be serious about frightening the U.S. with that giant mosquito. Someone is suffering demntia in the Kremlin.

“The last time we saw anything similar was two years ago on the Fourth of July,” Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Norad spokesman, told the Free Beacon.

LOL

Davis said the aircraft “acted professionally” and the bombers appeared to be conducting a training mission.

“They typically do long range aviation training in the summer and it is not unusual for them to be more active during this time,” he said.“We assess this was part of training. And they did not enter territorial airspace.”

The incident began much further north when four Russian Tu-95 Bear bomber planes and a refueling tanker enter the outer Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) near Alaska. The ADIZ extends for 200 miles and is considered international airspace, but if military aircraft enter the ADIZ, then the U.S. NORAD sends fighter jets to get a visual identification, NORAD spokesperson Capt. Jennifer Stadnyk said.

That’s what happened Monday afternoon when two American F-22 Raptor fighter jets went up to keep an eye on the Russian aircraft.

Stadnyk said that the last five years there have been 50 intercepts of Russian military aircraft entering North American ADIZs. One of the new stealth F-22 Raptors’ first missions reportedly was such an interception back in 2007.

The last time the Russian bombers came close to the California coast was July 4, 2012.

Umm... I am probably one of the biggest Russia supporters on here but I would never, ever ask them to nuke Washington DC. Not even as a joke.

Besides, I already put in my request years ago!

Maybe you're right but I didn't say nuke ALL of Canada. All of New Jersey should be bombed. They'd be doing us a favor.
