Russian bombers making practice runs on AK’s Ft. Greely, Vandenberg AFB over last two weeks

Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast on Wednesday and were met by U.S. interceptor jets, defense officials told the Free Beacon.

It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks.


An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that a Russian military spokesman said included simulated attacks on “enemy” air defenses and strategic facilities.

A defense official said the Pacific coast intrusion came close to the U.S. coast but did not enter the 12-mile area that the U.S. military considers sovereign airspace.

The bomber flights near the Pacific and earlier flights near Alaska appear to be signs Moscow is practicing the targeting of its long-range air-launched cruise missiles on two strategic missile defense sites, one at Fort Greely, Alaska and a second site at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.

    You forrget Russia and China are not the ones running around the world starting wars and conflict.Sticking their noses where they do not belong. It is this country that runs U.N -NATO-.Much like “HITLER’S Germany this country imposes on sovereign countrys our “MARXIST FASCIST WILL”. That’s right! State controlled capitolism is “FASCISM”. The uneducatedsheeple don’t see this. And” THEY” buy the dribble they are fed by our state controlled “MEDIA”. But the rest of the world has had enough! Iam a cold war veteran, educated by our military to reconize this propaganda. Also i have visited Russia in the resent passed and found that all the propaganda spoon fed to me all my live about Russia & the Russian people was and is “PURE B.S.”! We are now offically a “MARXIST SOCIALIST COUNTRY” under the dictate of this “GAYBAMA REGIME”! My friends in Europe and Russia tell me , They look at America as “HITLER’s NAZI GERMANY with NUKES”. Can you imagine “HITLER” with “NUKES?” If this country is not “RESTORED ” TO -and by the CONSTITUTION all will be “LOST” . And like “NAZI GREMANY” the world will come together to “CRUSH” the “EVIL” that holds us “HOSTAGE”.

    • fish you must be having a bad dream wake up and smell the crap you are spewing out of your mouth.

      • Go on back to sleep jerry, we all know you have no comment worthy of report and have no brains left after smoking the bush admin crack for so long…

      Thank you fish! I am glad that I am not the only one that can see what Obama is doing to our country. He is another Hitler but worse.
      We need to get him out of office. The American people see Obama as a good leader, just like the people in Germany were fooled by Hitler. It took Hitler 12 years to put his people in office and take down Germany and attack the other European countries. GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY. The election is going to be one mess and the American people are going to have to make sure the voting is not another fraud. Acorn is bring in more Refugees and last time they were making sure the Muslims could vote. They made laws in IL so the illegals and Muslims could vote for Obama
      European countries have been under the Fascist regime of Hitler and others and now that Obama is in office they can see our government changing.

    • Fish, at least it’s a USA brand of Marxist propaganda and NOT a full-out Russian Marxist take…but that could happen as part of Obama’s “October Surprise”. Putin is suddenly eager to work with Obama after the elections when Obama has “more flexibility” ? I hardly think so…..I think there is an orchestrated effort going on between Putin and O’Liar to create the necessary atmosphere for a Coup ‘d Etat, Junta-controlled Amerika. Call me creative, or a conspiracy theorist…but I really do believe that Putin and his Bear H bombers are part and parcel of creating the required fear, fraud, and “trumped-up” national emergency O’Liar needs to suspend, by Executive Order”, the November elections. We had all better be ready to spill blood.

    • CONSERVATIVE TPP

      U R JUST ANOTHER PATHETIC EXAMPLE OF WHY IGNORANT HUMANS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE!!!!! THE SOCIALIST/MARXIST/COMMUNIST/PROGRESSICE/LEFTIST……IS IN THE WHITEHOUSE. UNFORTUNATE INDEED!!!!

    • cajink

      Amen to that Fish..Preppers awaken. Oath-Keepers stand strong.

    • fish how old are you Russia and china has always done done this if you remember russia was in Afghanistan before the U S you don’t remember those things do you just run the U S down but when the crap hits the fan everybody hollers for the U S to come running

  • CaptTurbo

    It’s certainly no comfort having the moron usurper in the White House as things heat up all around the globe.

    • daveveselenak

      It is also not comforting when the state-run press will not report such dangerous proceedings to the sheeple! The plan by the Muslim-Marxist to bring down America is being played out to the tee. America will be under communist rule for abandoning God, as Israel was subjected to invasion in the Old Testament. All the weather related extremes are just a warning to turn back to God! I don’t see that happening now a days! All I can say is be prepared for Hell on earth, it’s coming very soon.

  • get ready people it’s coming to a town near you and if we are fighting with each other it won’t be hard for them to just walk in and take over remember the movie red dawn think and be ready why do you think hillary and obama want the u.n. small arms treaty if we have to trough rocks and they shoot bullets who do you think will come out on top? And call me crazy but at least i will be ready to fight as long as i have breath in my body .

  • hey why are some of the names in red is it some way for the gov. to keep names of the people who speak out ?

    • BarrySuxx

      Jerry;
      Being ‘Powered by Disqus’ should be a BIG Hint. If it IS, then you can bet your caREAR that Big Bro ‘Lefty’ is Watch’n You. This is why I quit commenting on Joe’s stuff. Do be careful.

      • barry i have the same thinking and i will be as careful as they will let me.

  • Sovereign air space??? Are we sure that Barry has not eliminated our sovereign air space as he has our sovereign land boundaries – Arizona for one? Peace,

    • Nellie CA

      My concern is what is going on in Mexico!! What is Mexico allowing China and other countries to bring their illegals through Mexico to our borders. Are they building up Military in Mexico?
      A few more years of Mexican produce in CA and our farmers will be out of business. With our government regulations on our farmers and cheap Mexican produce! What does China have to do with this?
      Will Mexico allow China to have a air base in Mexico?
      Why do you think Obama wants to control the guns and airways?

  • Guns & Ammo! Stock up!

  • misleading headline. Probing outside the 12 mile airspace boundary is not a practice run on Fort Greely.
