Russia

On Monday night, the U.S. Air Force scrambled two F-22 stealth fighters to intercept a pair of Russian nuclear-capable bombers which came as close as 100 miles from Alaska’s Kodiak Island.

This was the first time since President Trump took office that Moscow has sent bombers so close to the U.S.

Now it has happened again – and this time, the bombers came closer, reports Fox News:

For the second consecutive night, Russia flew two long-range bombers off the coast of Alaska on Tuesday, this time coming within 36 miles of the mainland while flying north of the Aleutian Islands, two U.S. officials told Fox News.

The two nuclear-capable Tu-95H bombers were spotted by U.S. military radar at 5 p.m. local time.

Unlike a similar incident Monday night, this time the U.S. Air Force did not scramble any fighter jets.

Instead, it launched a single E-3 Sentry early warning aircraft, known as AWACS, to make sure there were only the two Russian bombers flying near Alaska, and not other aircraft flying underneath the large bombers.

Before the incidents this week, the last time Russian bombers flew near the U.S. was July 4, 2015, when a pair of Russian bombers flew off the coasts of Alaska and California, coming as close as 40 miles to Mendocino, Calif. Russian President Vladimir Putin called then-President Barack Obama to wish him a happy Independence Day while the bombers cruised the California coastline.

    Alaska is very close to Russian air space so this is no big deal.

    Give me a break, this is just more Fear Porn for the uninformed Sheeple – “Russia sending nuclear delivery capable bombers into US air space” to stir/create/condition Americans to expect WW3. Who is guilty of propaganda and manipulation/false flag promotion NOW? (the writer of this article and The Daily Sheeple for posting such garbage).
    For all of you who do not know it, the Russians have been flying training attack profiles like this for DECADES, particularly when they have the fuel and operational aircraft to do so or when they want to flex their muscles at the US.

    Yep. Russia sends aircraft around US borders… US sends aircraft around Russia’s borders… been like that for a long time. Why is this even news? And if this is such a newsworthy event, why do we not hear about when the US does that?
