Exercise!


This is coolbert:

"From Russia With Love" - - Again.

Remember that recent blog entry about the Tu-95 flight? Missions from Russian territory toward Guam?

Here is more about Russian military aviation activity of an alarming nature.

From the web site http://www.homelandsecurityus.com/

"as you are reading this, Russian strategic bombers are conducting a series of long-range training flights, complete with aerial refueling, simulating a full-fledged nuclear cruise missile strike on the Continental United States."

"Russian strategic bombers Tu-160, Tu-95 and Tu-22M3, and Il-78 aerial tankers are engaged in this exercise"

"In September 2006 Russian strategic aviation conducted simulated nuclear strikes within the contiguous territory of the Russian Federation. That exercise reportedly involved 60 long-range bombers of the same variants seen airborne in the exercise currently in progress. The difference is that in the exercise of 3 and 4 September, as well as the current 18-21 September exercise, the targets of the nuclear cruise missiles are not within Russian territory but are in fact once again real-world locations within the continental United States."

"an updated analysis of the current Russian strategic long-range aviation nuclear exercise is scheduled to conclude on Friday, 21 September"

"The recent landing of a U.S. B-52H with live nuclear warheads at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana is a prime indicator that the United States is pro-actively countering the Russian exercises with our own strategic aviation deterrent, known in days gone by as 'oil burner' runs."

Those live warheads on the cruise missiles! A terrible mistake and a gross violation of protocol? For which persons have been dismissed from their duties and others having had their certification taken away, is all part of a "demonstration" directed at the Russians? Under the pretext of a "mistake" having been committed, a MESSAGE is being sent??!!

Consider, if you are a conspiracy advocate, where the "nuclear mistake" was first reported??

"In a story first reported by Military Times newspapers, at ArmyTimes.com"

If there were a covert intent to demonstrate capability to fly nuclear armed, wouldn't it be a sacrifice of those involved, with a lot invested in those airmen? Unless they were mostly about to be transferred to some secretive units where they would have new identities or something?
