The U.S. Air Force considered it dangerous to intercept the B-52 by the Russian Su-27 over the Black Sea. “We fly where the Russians have been hosting for centuries. I’m not a big fan of the Russians, but it’s us on their doorstep, not the other way around,” FOX News reported. The U.S. Air Force Command in Europe and Africa called the actions of Russian Su-27 fighter jets intercepting the U.S. B-52H strategic bomber over the Black Sea “unsafe and unprofessional” and “incompatible with international rules,” FOX News reported. The news has garnered more than 4,500 comments from American readers.
“Oh, like we don’t do that ourselves. I’m not going to do that. Let’s just admire the great technique.”
“No more than one war at a time.” We fly where the Russians have been hosting for centuries. I’m not a big fan of Russians, but we’re on their doorstep, not the other way around. It’s time to give the Russian bear a descent and deal with China and the internal enemy – the Democrats. That’s where the real enemy of the American people is.”
“Yes, Russia as a country is only a quarter of a century old. We have been in Europe four times longer than Putin’s state exists. The fact that they have Soviet weapons does not make them old-timers.”
Everett Robinson argues with him.
“How much money we spend on defense, and we can’t cope with planes”
“There are a lot of neocons (new conservatives) who can’t wait to start the Big Deal. Not very wise. John McCain’s ghost is proud of you!”
“Many people are dreaming of war with Russia. We may win, but we’ll suffer big losses. Both military and civilian. This is not World War II, where all the fights are going on on another continent. American cities will be destroyed and millions will perish.”
Robbie points out.
Recall that we are talking about a video published by the Russian Ministry of Defense. It shows Russian fighter pilots driving away from a huge American bomber, approaching it at a very close distance.
