Russian bomber buzzes U.S. aircraft carrier within 2,000 ft.

Russian bomber buzzes U.S. aircraft carrier within 2,000 ft.

I thought the Cold War was over? FYI, 2,000 feet is about .38 miles.

It says south of Tokyo, I did not see any mention of Hawaii or California or...USA for that matter

Not sure why this is news. I'd wager my left nut that a bomber didn't just "sneak up and buzz" a CVN. I'm sure things were a little tense for a bit, though...

I'd rather consider the Russian or Chinese governments to be the enemy before I gave my own government that treatment. You are a renegade.

Good for you...that is where we are today as compared 15 years ago and where they are today if you look 15 years back....
We're below where we were then, they are 50 years ahead...

Scott, what is Russia doing wrong lately? They didn't invade any country since Afganistan and that was in the early 80s. Aren't they entitled to some areas of influence or does everything in the world have to belong to the U.S. aka liberated (for American trade)? What threat is coming from Russia? That they don't allow pornography to be broadcasted over public TV networks doesn't mean that they supress freedom of speech. I watch Russian TV frequently and there is plenty of serious and humorous critique of the government and Putin. So, I'm missing the point with American politcal fussing over Russia.

And as to "repressions" against Oligarchs like Berezovsky, Khodorkovsky, etc.: would you like people like Ken Lay and Andrew Fastow to have unlimited freedom in not paying taxes, screwing consumers, and disregarding laws and regulations? That was happenning in Russia during the Yeltsin era when large businesses behaved as if they were the ultimate law.

"One of them twice flew about 2,000 feet over the deck of the USS Nimitz Saturday"

It sounds provocative to me. Too many dangerous acts could be expected this year while we have a lame-duck president. The U.S. must be ready with any response that is necessary to repel attacks and dissuade probes of our military, airspace, and borders.

2,000 feet is VERY close. Maybe people here don't realize how close that is at 500mph.
