What's with all these in-close defense systems we hear about...1,000 yards and they gave the dood a pass...maybe if it had been Iranian or another weakling nation it might have been toast. Oh well.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.


In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.


The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of coming in contact with the ship, said the official, who was not authorized to talk publicly by name about the encounter so spoke on condition of anonymity. The passes, which occurred in the early evening there, ended without incident.

Putin has Rock Star popularity in Russia, many people like his stance on making Russia a more powerful country and expanding back to it's old glory days...

But he states that there is no such thing as American Exceptionalism (external - login to view).

What other country in the world has the massive infrastructure (Interstate System), and care for it's people who are without..

I think Putin should start building more Infrastructure, fight corruption and most importantly keep care of their poor..

With that said... PU$$Y RIOT!!!!

I wonder if the Russians were trying to provoke the Americans into firing on the Russian aircraft in order to create an international incident?

Putin will take a page from US strategy book and stage a false flag terrorist act on Moscow and blame Ukrainians.
