Wouldn’t matter where the servers are hosted, if such a scenario were to be realized the Internet would be toast.
I can see Russian planes from my house - wonder if the California sophisticates are laughing now.....
Is ‘freebeacon’ a legit site, or more like infowars?
They know they can get away with doing this. Unbelievable.
Isn’t it true that you can hear a TU-95 departing Russia all the way from Sarah Palin’s house in Alaska ?
Rumor has it that the Tu-95’s huge counterrotating propellers are so loud that it can be heard approaching long before it appears on radar. Urban myth. They’re loud, check out youtube, but not THAT loud.
Anyway, the Russians could be probing us with Swordfish biplanes & still present a threat. Our defenses have been thoroughly compromised by this administration.
You poke the bear, he pokes back. Very simple if you understand the Russian psyche. This is the bears response to deploying B2’s to England. Just letting you know, if those B2’s kill any Russians, the bear will kill Californians.
Oooooh. Another incident where obamass could draw another red line.
Yet, Americans will seriously consider a Democrat, likely the consistent failure Hillary, for President in 2016.
The nuclear triad. Subs, planes and ICBMs. Between the three enough warheads should be able to get through to cause severe damage.
Heck one nuke hitting a populated area will disrupt our lives for a few years.
They don’t have to get that close. The Russians have some long range cruise missiles. They can fire from distance. Our fighters might be able to get the missiles inbound but the launch platforms will be too far away to intercept.
I saw one in Charlotte NC once.
They shot down a Korean Air 747 that strayed over Soviet airspace in the 1980’s.
Jean Kirpatrick called them liars in front of the UN General Assembly.
Twice in the month of May, my wife and I were on Bodega Bay beaches in Northern California.
During both day trips, a hot Air Force jet was scrambled from probably Travis AFB, and went over us at a very low altitude and then out over the Pacific in a WSW direction until it went out sight.
We haven’t seen nor heard anything like that, since the months after 9/11. Friends, who were in that area at different times in the past two months, saw and heard one of our jets being scrambled over the area.
Go up and shoot them down. Period.
I doubt any urban dwellers in California even noticed, except of course, the Marines in the south.
Yeah - they mentioned cruise missiles in the article and that took me aback. I'm thinking “bombs” and “50 miles” - well, that might not be too terrible, but cruise missiles....
I wonder if we have the capability like in the movies where our fighters can say “they are arming the missiles, 15 seconds to launch”.
I imagine any “squashing like a baby seal” would be done after the missiles are launched?
