THREATENS US AIRSPACE TWICE IN ONE MONTH
Within the past month, nuclear capable Russian bombers have encroached upon or entered American airspace – the most recent incident happened on America’s own birthday – Independence Day. It appears Vladimir Putin has once again decided to thumb his nose at Barack Obama.
NO MORE BOWING PRESIDENTS – AMERICA NEEDS A STRONG LEADER; FIRE OBAMA!
This is what happens when America has a President that would rather bow to foreign leaders than “walk quietly and carry a big stick”. And if we are not careful, this weak and feckless President of our will lead us right back into the Cold War.
“Incursions into our airspace, along with their threats to attack our missile defense systems, show President Putin’s aggression in the face of President Obama’s ‘flexibility,’” and “These latest reported actions show what the Russian Federation thinks of the ‘reset’ the Obama administration desperately continues to push” said Rep. Michael Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommitte.
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a former Alaska commander for the North American Aerospace Defense Command of NORAD, said the latest bomber intrusion appears to be Russian military testing.
McInerney told the Free Beacon in a recent interview “It’s becoming very obvious that Putin is testing Obama and his national security team, these long-range aviation excursions are duplicating exercises I experienced during the height of the Cold War when I commanded the Alaska NORAD region.”
“Actions by Russia in Syria and Iran demonstrate that Cold War strategy may be resurrected,” McInernery continued, “These are not good indications of future U.S. Russian relations.”
WE NEED A STRONG AMERICA – NOT A RETURN TO CARTER-LIKE APPEASEMENT – FIRE OBAMA!
America, we worked hard to end the Cold War. But Obama’s weakness is tempting our enemies into a rematch. And if Obama wins re-election, the chances of Russia winning that rematch are good.
The chief of the Russian General Staff, Nikolai Makarov, said during a Moscow conference that because missile defense systems are destabilizing, “A decision on pre-emptive use of the attack weapons available will be made when the situation worsens.”
The comments highlighted Russian opposition to planned deployments of U.S. missile defense interceptors and sensors in Europe. Russian Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Vladimir Deryabin, told reporters in Moscow last month that the arctic strategic war games “practice destruction of enemy air defenses and strategic facilities.”
Frankly, this is akin to the bully on the block standing outside your house and calling you out to fight. If you fail to confront the bully, not only is your credibility is gone….. the rest of the bullies will begin to attack you as well.
Remember a few months ago when an open microphone caught Obama and Russian President Medvedev in unguarded conversation?
“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,” said Obama to Medvedev.
Let’s hold Obama to his word…let’s make absolutely sure this is his last election – and let’s make sure he has LOTS of flexible free time to play golf after 2012.
