For the second night in a row the radar screens of the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command lit up with the signatures of what turned out to be Russian long-range, nuclear capable bombers. The incident by itself is unnerving but not uncommon. Since the days of Obama, Putin has ordered such close fly-bys as a show of force.
Unfortunately, the times have gotten much more dangerous.
According to Right Scoop, the second incident involved “two nuclear-capable Tu-95H bombers” that flew within 36 miles of the Alaskan coast. This follows the previous nights’ intrusion by the same type of aircraft.
With so many potentially explosive geo-political pawns in motion, the risk of a massive war increases exponentially. President Trump confessed that the global situation was becoming more dangerous.
Last week Trump said that relations with Russia “may be at an all-time low” and concluded by saying, “Right now we’re not getting along with Russia at all.”
Thankfully, President Trump is an astute student of negotiations and an excellent reader of character. With the aid of the deft Rex Tillerson, America is in good hands and will do what is right by the country.
