• OBAMA NORMAL: Russian Fighters Buzz US Destroyer In Simulated Attack

    On April 11th, Russian fighters came within feet of the US Destroyer Donald Cook. This “Buzz” of an American vessel breaks numerous rules of engagement, international treaties and a Russian/American Agreement that “specifically” forbids this behavior.

    It is a brazen display of power as the planes simulated an attack run on the US ship. This is yet another show of force from the Russians as they continue to enlarge themselves again as a world power at the expense of the US.

    President Obama is reportedly very upset about this. He actually delayed a “Tee-time” for an hour while he fumed about it.

    All kidding aside, the Obama Administration has become a laughing stock to the world. Putin only continues to show that we have no backbone and that he is the real power in the world.

    Iran is visiting Moscow next week to discuss weapons purchases and friendship. Of course, that breaks the Iran Deal that Obama negotiated, but the Russian Fly By is only more proof that we will do nothing.

    From Liberty Unyielding:

    The danger implied by the 11 April incident in which Russian Su-24 Fencer attack aircraft buzzed USSDonald Cook (DDG-75) is twofold.

    One aspect of it is essentially political.  What the Russians did constituted an egregious violation of the longstanding Incidents at Sea Agreement (INCSEA), which the U.S. and the Soviet Union signed in 1972.

    And I mean egregious.  The Russians violated theexact language of INCSEA, as if that was their intention.  Here is the summary of the 11 April incident in the Baltic Sea from the U.S. Naval Institute blog, quoting a release from the U.S. European Command:

    “On April 11, Donald Cook was conducting deck landing drills with an Allied military helicopter when two Russian SU-24 jets made numerous, close-range and low altitude passes at approximately 3 p.m. local,” read a release from U.S. European Command provided to USNI News.

    “One of the passes, which occurred while the allied helicopter was refueling on the deck of Donald Cook, was deemed unsafe by the ship’s commanding officer. As a safety precaution, flight operations were suspended until the SU-24s departed the area.”

    Press reports indicated the allied helicopter was Polish. …

    One thing is obvious, the Russians literally have no fear of President Obama and doing whatever they want in the world.
