Myanmar suffers with China and Russia okay as Russia warns and throws military power parade!
Russia accuses NATO of attacking its Bombers while expanding, preparing for war with Georgia and parading military might Soviet style, war getting closer!
Amidst growing tensions between the US, NATO, and Russia, we have Russia expanding around the world most notably South America and the Arctic shelve. They are threatening war with Georgia and not only threatening most presumably Bush with their recent parade showing off their military might and latest hardware we are getting closer daily to WW3: Russia's air force chief has accused NATO fighters escorting Russian bombers on patrol flights over neutral waters of violating safety rules.
Col.-Gen. Alexander Zelin said on Saturday that NATO aircraft were approaching Russian bombers too closely and too often, creating risky situations."They approach our strategic bombers at unacceptable distances and at unacceptable intervals, conduct various maneuvers around them and violate flight safety rules in every way," Zelin was quoted by the Interfax news agency as telling reporters Saturday. No one answered the phone at the Air Force's press service Saturday.
An increasingly assertive Moscow is seeking to showcase its military might and clout in the international arena. During Friday's Victory Day parade, Russia displayed tanks and missile launchers on Red Square for the first time since the Soviet era, evoking the Cold War. Russia's military spending has increased eightfold to an annual $40 billion during the past eight years, thanks to the nation's oil bonanza. Analysts, however, say the armed forces still suffer from the problems that have dented its capability and prestige since the Soviet collapse.
Zelin complained that NATO F-15, F-16 and F-22 fighter jets regularly "attack" Russian bombers over the Arctic Ocean."It is not a misuse of the word 'attack' because our partners are training for combat actions, reaching the point of an attack," Zelin was quoted as saying. "I must confess that this is quite unpleasant and even dangerous. Naturally, we rehearse our counteractions." There was no immediate comment from NATO. Russia itself has been the subject of similar disputes. In February, Russian bombers flew over a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Pacific, prompting the U.S. to scramble fighters to escort the Russian aircraft. In September last year, Russian jets were accused of violating Finnish airspace. Russia said the jets were flying over neutral territory. Russia furious over NATO air attacks
You know I believe it is almost exclusively due to Bush's instigation around the world with his rapidly increasing cockiness and encroachment into others territory but as our economy increasingly fails we are getting rapidly closer to confrontation with Russia, China, and Iran, and the frightening scenario of ending our elections so Bush can head his instigated Forever Wars. I am dismayed that I was listening to the so called experts say Russia is not much of a threat! What the Hell is up here?
