Russian Bombers Fly Within 50 Miles Of California Coast

Four Russian strategic bombers triggered U.S. air defense systems while conducting practice bombing runs near Alaska this week, with two of the Tu-95 Bear H aircraft coming within 50 miles of the California coast, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad) confirmed Wednesday.

“The last time we saw anything similar was two years ago on the Fourth of July,” Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Norad spokesman, told the Free Beacon.

Davis said the latest Bear H incursions began Monday around 4:30 p.m. Pacific time when radar detected the four turbo-prop powered bombers approaching the U.S. air defense zone near the far western Aleutian Islands.

Two U.S. Air Force F-22 jets were scrambled and intercepted the bombers over the Aleutians.

After tracking the bombers as they flew eastward, two of the four Bears turned around and headed west toward the Russian Far East. The bombers are believed to be based at the Russian strategic base near Anadyr, Russia.

The remaining two nuclear-capable bombers then flew southeast and around 9:30 P.M. entered the U.S. northern air defense zone off the coast of Northern California.

..

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a former Alaska commander for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said he does not remember a case of Russian strategic bombers coming that close to the U.S. coast.

“Again we see the Obama administration through their covert—but overt to Mr. Putin—unilateral disarmament, inviting adventurism by the Russians,” McInerney said in an email.

“At the height of the Cold War I do not remember them getting this close. Mr. Putin had to approve this mission and he is just showing his personal contempt for President Obama right after meeting him in Normandy less than a week ago,” McInerney said.

McInerney said no American president has been treated with such disrespect in U.S. history.

“A sad day indeed and at the same time Mosul and Tikrit [iraq] fall to radical Islamists after the Obama administration’s failed Iraq policy,” he added. “He snatched defeat from the jaws of victory yet again.”

The failed Iraq policy isn't Obama's that was a massive feck up before he came on the scene.

Anyone on here recall Soviet bombers getting so close.

Good job that American military planes never ever go anywhere near other countries' airspace isn't it? It's a shame such a peace-loving nation has to suffer such unwarranted harrassment.

don't laugh.

those russian bear bombers pack a punch.

they aren't intended for primary strike at all though. they are "follow-up" vehicles, because the height of their electronic gadgetry inside still uses valve amplifiers(not even transistors)

..basically,the russians worked out long ago that emp/nuke stikes fry most solid state electronics, but these babies just keep on chugging along.

..so while uncle sam went the high tech route, the russians spotted an achilles heel.

putin is not stupid,he is trained in judo, his method of warfare will be similar if provoked.

zhirinovsky is the pub brawler....quite a bit less disciplined and unstable,but more likely to come out swinging.

You mean it's like Battlestar Galactica (remake).

Looks like Putin paid attention to the millennium challenge then.

A recent piece on King World News about Putin's KGB, chess master, strategic training and why he is streets ahead of the West.

http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/6/11_Former_Soros_Associate_Warns,_How_Would_They_Stop_Putin.html

Today a legendary trader and investor spoke with King World News about the comments made yesterday by Mark Mobius about Russian President Vladimir Putin. Victor Sperandeo has been in the business 45 years, and has worked with famous individuals such as Leon Cooperman and George Soros.

“I agree with him but I would go even further. When Putin was head of the KGB for 16 years, these guys at the head of the KGB are educated by master chess players as part of their regimen. And obviously that shows because this man is one, two, three moves ahead of anybody he deals with....

“You have to compliment Putin in terms of his mastery of strategies that he executes -- it’s outstanding. I’m not necessarily a pro-Putin guy, I’m just observing the facts, that’s all. Putin was head of the KGB for a long time, and he is opposed by a guy who knocked on doors and tried to recruit people as an organizer -- it’s no contest.

Let’s put it another way: Putin can do whatever he wants, and in my opinion he has acted in a very restrained manner, as Mark Mobius pointed out in his interview. The Russians have 8,500 nuclear warheads. That is roughly as many nuclear warheads as the entire rest of the world possesses combined.

Who is going to stop Putin? The man has more nuclear warheads than the rest the world put together. So, yes, Putin has acted with great restraint. I believe it was Lenin who said, ‘One man with a gun can control 100 without one.’ But without guns, how would they stop him? Most of the countries in the world no longer have guns. So how would they stop Putin?

Look at Ukraine: They used to have the third largest arsenal in the world, behind Russia and the United States. But the Ukrainian citizens gave up their guns in the 1990s at the behest of the United States. Now what do they have? They have nothing. They could be overrun by a few tanks. So Putin can do whatever he wants and there isn’t a soul that’s going to stop him because he has too many nuclear weapons and he will destroy anything he wishes if it comes to that.”

That turned out to be a myth; after the end of the cold War it was realised that the Russians used valve avionics because they were behind the West in technology, it was nothing to do with EMP or nuclear hardening.

i would expect the Bears have had avionics updates since then.

The AK means it is in the 90th Fighter Squadron.

the 47th surely?

easy meat for the two radar guided machine gun turrets and the standoff missiles on the Bear...
