article imageOp-Ed: Russian warplanes threaten American airspace

By Eliot Elwar
Jul 13, 2012 in World
In early July 2012, Russian warships conduct maneuvers near Syria while its Tu-95 BEAR H nuclear-capable bombers were intercepted near America's west coast region. This action was the second U.S. air defense zone intrusion in recent weeks.
The New York Times reports: Russia recently dispatched an 11 warship flotilla to the eastern Mediterranean. The warships began docking in Syria. The warships’ movement was the largest display of Russian military power in the region since the Syrian conflict began in early 2011. Nearly half of the warships were capable of carrying hundreds of marines.
The Washington Free Beacon reports: Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast in early July and the combat aircraft were met by U.S. interceptor warplanes. It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable warplanes into the 322 kilometer zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks. An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games exercise, according to a Russian military official. The Russian war-games included simulated attacks on American air defenses and strategic installations and facilities. The Pacific coast intrusion came close to the American coast, but did not enter the 20 kilometer region that the American military considers sovereign airspace.
According to defense analysts and press reports, the bomber flights near the Pacific and earlier flights near Alaska are indications that Moscow is targeting its long-range air-launched cruise missiles on two strategic missile defense sites, one at Fort Greely, Alaska, and a second site at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. This activity could be a clear sign that Russia is going to defend Syria. The entire world is now a time bomb and an all-out global war could start from many angles. The tension will build until something explodes.
Analysis
Russia is not playing games with the West and neither is Syria and Iran. The coming Mideast war could evolve into a global conflict where the Western powers will fight against Russia and the Mideast Muslim nations. The Russians sent their bombers on a training mission to attack American targets on the West Coast because the war in the Mideast is really beginning to develop soon and Russia is getting deeply involved in protecting Syria. The Western support for the rebels is growing. The event to watch for is when Assad launches missile attacks against Israel in an attempt to save his dying regime from death. Iran continues to prepare for war with Israel and America. The Mideast caliphate theocracy continues to form as the Mideast economy continues its downward spiral. There is no hope for the Mideast region. What awaits the Mideast is a nuclear Armageddon. If a global conflict commences, America, Russia, Israel, and many Mideast Muslim nations will be seriously damaged during the next world war.
