Russia, US Tensions Rise As Moscow Sends Military Toward Alaska

There has been no shortage of trouble brewing between the United States and Russia over the course of the last few years, after Barack Obama unceremoniously sent a number of Kremlin diplomats packing.

That maneuver was in response to the alleged “election meddling” that the liberal left has been attempting to tie President Donald Trump to in both the media and in a wildly off course investigation being undertaken by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Defying the democratic assertion that he is some sort of Russian asset, the Commander in Chief is dealing with Russian aggression on a  near-daily basis, as evidenced by yet another aggressive military action being undertaken by Putin’s regime.

The Russian military says that two nuclear-capable strategic bombers have flown to the easternmost Chukotka Peninsula, near Alaska, as part of an air force exercise.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Tu-160 bombers flew about 7,000 kilometers (4,350 Miles) from their home base near Saratov in southwestern Russia to Anadyr, on Chukotka, before returning to their home base. The ministry said the mission was the first time the bombers had flown to Chukotka, which faces Alaska across the Bering Strait.

The ministry said the air force exercise also involved the Tu-95 strategic bombers and tanker planes.

No word yet on whether or not they were first spotted by Sarah Palin.

In all seriousness, however, the Russians aren’t known for their forthcoming nature when it comes to military operations, and the guise that this is merely a drill will certainly be challenged by the intelligence community and the Trump administration.
