Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones over the past 10 days, an unusually sharp increase in aerial penetrations, according to U.S. defense officials.

There has been some Twitter buzz about this, but nothing "confirmed", until now.
Are they afraid it could make Obama look bad (and cost them their jobs), yet again?
Until they start strafing the golf course, no action will be taken...
I thought I heard a couple of F/A-18’s take off a couple days ago.. Under Obama, I’m shocked we even respond to border incursions anymore. Uhhh, given that Obama doesn’t believe in borders.
Obama “kept the lights on” and the borders open.
The EXEMPT remain unconcerned.
Meanwhile, Ebola, MS13, the Iranians, ISIS,
and even the Russians take foothold from sea to shining sea.
And what has our do-nothing president done about it?
They woulnd’t try it if Cruz was in the White House.
Borders are racist.
“Until they start strafing the golf course, no action will be taken...”
Best FR comment of the day! Thanks for the chuckle...
An ADIZ extends well beyond what the general public would consider “US Airspace”
Time for a rebel BUK missile to take out a Russian bomber.
The 1980’s keep calling, asking if he wants their foreign policy back.
Romney was totally correct, but the TV told the sheeple to laugh at him, and praise Obama’s weakness. And they did....
Best chuckler so far today.........
I don’t know what models of planes are presently based here, but the ANG has been doing a lot of take-offs with full afterburner lately. I have an idea this will continue until we get complacent, whereupon those “Bears” will be orbiting over Seattle and Portland. I can hardly wait! /s
Considering that the CONUS air defense posture is based on 9-11, it would be pretty funny if we shot one of these bombers down, claiming we mistook it for a rogue airliner ...
“Russian bombers penetrated U.S. airspace at least 16 times in past 10 Days”
As the article said: “Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones”
The ADIZ is not US airspace.
It is airspace that requires we identify who’s there.
All part of the destructive ‘change’ he promised, and swallowed whole by his supporters.
Well the only thing to do is resurrect The Strategic Air Command and put the planes back on 24 Hour Alert.
The thing is do we even have the ability or the planes to do that?
Lord where is General Curtis Lemay when we need him??????????
