Ever since President Trump did an airstrike on Syria, Russia and North Korea have been absolutely losing their minds. Threats of nuclear war and historic shows of force have been prevalent over the past month, as these two countries continue to rattle their sabers and spout off with threats of war. Now a disturbing report breaking from FOX News reveals that Russia has no intentions of backing down, as they continue to test President Trump’s temperament as they try desperately to measure their penis against ours.
Our military forces are on high alert after intercepting a formation of Russian Bear bombers who entered our airspace via the Alaska Air Defense zone late Wednesday night, U.S. officials just confirmed to FOX News. Our Air Force immediately intercepted the bombers with several F-22 stealth fighter jets who just so happened to be patrolling the area, about 50 miles southwest of Chariot, Alaska. A spokesperson for NORAD told the media that our forces made the interception around at 9 p.m. ET, but disturbingly, the same thing happened again sometime on Thursday as well.
While some might try and dismiss this as just routine activity, it is not. This is the first time that the U.S. Air Force has seen Russian Su-35 fighter jets escort Russian bomber planes near Alaska, as they entered international airspace. The Russians did however flex their muscles last month flying near Alaska over the course of four consecutive days, marking the first time since 2014.
This latest show of force on behalf of the Russians comes just on the heels of President Trump’s phone call with Vladimir Putin several days ago, where the White House revealed that their conversation was centered around the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and North Korea.
This is extremely concerning considering that President Trump admitted that our relations with Russia at the moment is at an “all time low,” with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson echoing those sentiments.
It looks like we are definitely on the brink of World War III and now the question becomes: is America ready? While we do have competent military leaders advising President Trump, Barack Hussein Obama completely gutted our military forces while in office, taking us back to pre-World War II capabilities. Compound that with the fact that U.S. Admiral Harry Harrison revealed several days ago that our military is running out of bombs after a series of continual airstrikes on ISIS over the past several months, and it is a huge cause for alarm.
“Critical munitions shortfalls are my top war-fighting concern,” U.S. Admiral Harry Harrison stated in front of the Joint House Committee earlier this week. “We must maintain our capability to operate in contested environments. Additionally, we must continue to expand cross domain fires capabilities and focus on joint integration to strengthen deterrence and enable joint combined manoeuvre. Priorities include long-range and stand-off strike weapons, anti-ship weapons, advanced air to air munitions, theatre ballistic/cruise missile defense, torpedoes, naval mines, and a Cluster Munitions replacement.”
Building our military forces and capabilities up should no doubt be President Trump’s number one priority if the political atmosphere with Russia and North Korea does not improve.
Here’s the full story from FOX News:
Two Russian Bear bombers — escorted for the first time by a pair of Su-35 “Flanker” fighter jets — entered Alaska’s Air Defense Zone on Wednesday night, U.S. officials told Fox News.
The Russian formation was intercepted by a pair of U.S. Air Force F-22 stealth fighter jets that were already flying a patrol about 50 miles southwest of Chariot, Alaska. A NORAD spokesperson told Fox News the intercept began at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday and a defense source said it also occurred into Thursday.
It was the first time the U.S. Air Force has seen advanced Russian Su-35 fighter jets escort Russian Cold War-era bombers near Alaska.
The Russian fighter jets were unarmed and remained in international airspace, officials said.
Late last month, Russian bombers flew near Alaska over four consecutive days for the first time since 2014.
This week’s latest episode comes one day after President Trump spoke over the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The White House said the conversation focused on crises in the Middle East and North Korea, with no mention of recent Russian provocations.
The conversation was described in a readout as “a very good one.”
Trump in April said U.S. relations with Russia were at an “all-time low,” and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also described the relationship between the countries as being at a “low point.”
National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was not as pessimistic, however, telling “Fox News Sunday” that “I don’t think they have gotten either better or worse.”
