Crazed Russia Once Again Menaces UK with Nuclear Attack

The BBC reports that Russia has once again menaced it with nuclear attack in the manner of a crude thug, a rogue nation like Iran:

Two new RAF Typhoon jets shadowed a Russian bomber heading for Britain, the Ministry of Defence has said. The jets were scrambled on Friday 17 August to identify the Russian aircraft, which turned back before it reached UK skies. The MoD said: "RAF Typhoons from Numbers 3(F) and XI Squadrons launched to shadow a Russian Bear-H aircraft over the North Atlantic Ocean." The BBC's Gordon Corera said the incident was not a security threat. He said a similar incident occurred in July, but that this represented a new, more provocative Russian foreign policy. Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, has recently resumed the Soviet-era practice of sending bomber aircraft on long-range flights.

At least these morons could send one of their more modern planes up against the 4th Gen Euro-fighter. The Bear bomber looks like something straight out of WWII era. Kind of sad really.

True enough, but can you imagine how the old folks who remember the blitz feel? It makes you shudder.

Antiquated it may be, but some Bears are now requipped to carry cruise missiles.

It adds a significant threat and another 1500 miles on to their potential range.

No nice...
