Putin on notice: Two U.S. stealth bombers head to Europe for first time amid tension
The Washington Times ^ | June 10, 2014 | Douglas Ernst

Two U.S. B-2 Spirit stealth bombers are being deployed to Europe for the first time. The deployment of the advanced aircraft will be used for “short term deployment” at Fairford, a Royal Air Force base in England — just three hours from Russia.

“This deployment of strategic bombers provides an invaluable opportunity to strengthen and improve interoperability with our allies and partners,” said Adm. Cecil Haney, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, CNN reported Tuesday.

Posturing and pure BS.

Obama ain’t got the heart, mid, desire nor means for a real power demonstration.

The “need” for one? Oh absolutely! he NEEDS a victory someplace somehow over somebody.

But will Obama ever succeed in putting anything over Putin?
(Well, maybe kitchen drapes and an umbrella.)

To me the willingness and eagerness of some to shed the blood of others is amazing.

What happened in France last week?

This POS will get us all in deep crap over his jive smack talking ego.

Two B-2s? In England? Just as stupid as I would expect from the idiot in the white hut.

Outrage of the week? It is going to get innocent people killed. Potentially a lot of innocent people and a lot of them indiscriminately.

“The ultimate distraction: Blunder into WW 3.”

Yep. Obama, McCain and the other warmongers are bent on starting it. Red line or no.

Putin is quaking in his boots I’m sure. He has to know what the mood in America is.

Putin will probably return the gesture and send a couple of bombers to Cuba and see how the teleprompter responds.

Watch as Putin puts bombers in Cuba now. What good are b-2 bombers if you do not have the will to use them? Obama as a commander is like putting the jester in charge of the kingdom. Pee Wee Herman might not do too bad as manager of the Yankees- Obama would be worse than putting Howard Stearn in the White House.

Deployed???

As I recall, B-2s were not deployed in previous uses, but flown from the US to the target and back.

They are SECRET, and a deployment would require lots of special maintenance equipment, personnel, and special security.

So this is bo pumping iron to impress Putin.

Or a planned loss of an aircraft and/or its secrets.

I'll call that a tie. I wonder if Hagel told Barry that he made this move yet? O will be mad as hell when he finds out,

stealth bombers can perform a mission just fine from the U.S. there is absolutely no need to put 2 of them in europe.

we have got to close down this circus in the white hut ASAP.

Couldn't send one quietly to bomb those good Boko Muzzies but he's just itching to bomb Christians.

If Ukraine calms down he'll probably threaten to bomb Spain unless they give most of the country back to Iz Lame.
