If you’ve been watching the news over the course of the last 24-48 hours, you’ve no doubt seen the propaganda about Russian SU-24 attack planes buzzing the USS Donald Cook (DDG-75). This happened first on Monday, then again on Tuesday.
Russian planes flew EXTREMELY CLOSE to US navy destroyer who was EXTREMELY CLOSE to Russia’s borders … and the Russians are the aggressors here?
The US the media propaganda must want to start a war between the US and Russia? I can understand the desire to increase ad revenue and get more people to watch TV, but a global nuclear war is probably not the best way to achieve that.
The USS Donald Cook was just 38 Nautical miles off the coast of Russia, just 26 Nautical miles outside Russian waters. Sailors aboard the US ship described the Sukhoi Russian Su-24 as “wings clean,” meaning there were no visible bombs or armaments on the aircraft, the defense official said.
Imagine Russian warships conduct maneuvers 38 Nautical Miles miles from the coastline of the USA.
Here’s an idea. Maybe, umm I don’t know …Stop provoking Russia! USA builds up a presence right on the Russian doorstep and constantly vilify them for no reason at all especially when they seem to be the only ones who give a damn about destroying terrorists in the middle east. What if they did the same in the Gulf of Mexico?
Maybe if US warships weren’t 38 Nautical Miles from the Russian borders there would not be Russian jets flying near the bridge of US Navy ships?
Judging by the videos released by the US Navy, the sailors were nonplussed by the Russian aerobatic skills. They gathered on the top deck of the destroyer to watch the Russian pilots.
In Russia the local news sources describe this event a bit differently than the USA media: “Russian aircraft encounters aggressive U.S. Navy ship in Baltic Sea just kilometers from Russian shores”
