Russia Flexes Air Power Against West
Russia is ramping up its military might against the West by flying long-range Russian bombers on regular patrols in the Arctic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. The Associated Press reports, “Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, declined to call this a Russian provocation. He said the Russians have a right, like any other nation, to operate in international airspace and in international waters. The important thing, Warren said, is for such exercises to be carried out safely and in accordance with international standards.” But combined with the Great Bear’s aggression in Ukraine, it’s another sign – in the words of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev – “The world is on the brink of a new Cold War.” Cold War? We thought the real threat was global warming.
