There is quite enough turmoil right here on US soil as of late, with a number of coordinated efforts to dethrone Donald Trump emerging just before the 2018 midterm elections.
Our heads are spinning, if we’re being honest, and it’s hard to keep track of even the most basic comings and goings on Capitol Hill, let alone in the remainder of this grand and diverse nation. Our President is under attack, first and foremost, by in-denial fascists who have moved their book-burning online. Then, if these radicalized resistance rats don’t succeed, the left has given Robert Mueller carte blanche to prosecute anything that he finds while trying to dig up dirt about Donald Trump’s “secret Kremlin connections”, (or whatever the hell he’s looking for now).
Now, to top it all off, far from the antics of Congress and the Deep State, Russia has once again poked their nose where it doesn’t belong, sending American fighter pilots scrambling.
U.S. military officials confirmed on Wednesday that Air Force F-22 stealth fighter jets intercepted two Russian nuclear-capable bombers near Alaska on Tuesday.
According to a statement from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Wednesday, two Russian Tu-95 “Bear” bombers and two Su-35 “Flanker” fighter jets crossed into the Alaska Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on Tuesday. The incident reportedly took place at 22:00 (10 p.m.) Eastern Time.
Russian state media said that American jets escorted their aircraft for approximately 40 minutes but never approached closer than 100 meters. Although the Alaska ADIZ is not over American territory, the zone is regularly monitored in the interests of national security. All nations have the right under international law to establish an ADIZ over land or maritime territory.
The news comes as massive war-games are being conducted by Russia, in a joint effort with China, that many have criticized as being practice for a possible foreign invasion.
