The United States and Russia came within 20 feet of war on Tuesday. Isn’t this the same Russia who loved Trump and Trump loved in return. Don’t worry about it, the liberals and the media never let facts get in the way of a good ideological story. The incident occurred on Tuesday as a US jet was in international waters and flying over the Black Sea, when they were intercepted by a Russian jet, that stayed within an arm’s reach of out jet. Within 20 feet to be exact.
Although we are told that this particular incident didn’t have a tragic ending, anytime you are traveling that close together, the possibility of an imminent disaster are very good. Since President Trump bombed Syria, Putin has tried to intimidate him. It’s hard to intimidate a man that has General Mattis at his disposal.
A Russian fighter jet flew alarmingly close to a U.S. Navy reconnaissance aircraft flying in the Black Sea on Tuesday — just one day before Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Washington.
The Russian jet came as close as 20 feet to the American aircraft and remained that close for five minutes, a U.S. defense official told Fox News.
“While this one was considered by the flight crew to be safe and professional, this sort of close encounter certainly has the possibility to become dangerous in a hurry,” the defense official said.
An Su-27 Russian jet made the close approach to the P-8A Poseidon while the Navy plane was in international airspace.
That’s an incredibly dangerous maneuver.
It would be an international incident if two planes were to collide in a situation like that.
Russia knows that and they do it anyway.
