Putin Sends Nuclear Bombers Over English Channel: “Transponders Turned Off… Invisible to Air Traffic Control”

russian-tupelovSHTF Plan – by Mac Slavo

Russian President Vladimir Putin hasn’t been one to back down in response to sanctions against his country and attacks on his economy. Rather, he has stepped up not only his rhetoric, but his military activities as well.

His latest move is yet another show of force to let the West know Russia is prepared to do whatever is necessary to protect its interests.  

The U.K.’s Royal Air Force scrambled fighter jets on Thursday after a pair of nuclear-capable Russian bombers flew across a busy civilian air traffic corridor above the English Channel. The bombers had their transponders turned off, British officials said, making them invisible to many air traffic control systems. The incident disrupted multiple flights – and ended with the U.K. government demanding the Russian ambassador appear at the Foreign Office to explain the actions.

This latest incident comes on the heels of similar flyovers by nuclear bombers along the west coast of the United States from Alaska all the way down to California. It has even been speculated that Russia may have tested a new weapon last year leading to a shut down of Los Angeles commercial air traffic control systems.

Earlier this morning former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said that the U.S. and Russia are engaged in another cold war but warned that it could well go hot should tensions between the two nations continue to escalate.

Late last year Vladimir Putin made similar remarks:

He accused Barack Obama of adopting a “hostile” approach in naming Russia as a threat to the world in the U.S. president’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 24.

“We hope that our partners will realize the futility of attempts to blackmail Russia and remember what consequences discord between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability.” 

Putin said that Obama had identified Russian aggression in Europe as one of the three “major threats facing humanity,” alongside the Ebola virus and Islamic State.

“Together with the sanctions against entire sectors of our economy, this approach can be called nothing but hostile,” Putin said.

Russia’s ally against the West, China, also seems to be making some bold moves. According to a new satellite photo taken over the Nanji Islands they are building a refueling complex, the design and location of which indicate they are positioning military assets in anticipation of a war with Japan. In 2010 a missile launch off the coast of California was attributed to China by some observers who believe that they, too, are signaling their willingness to engage in a global conflict should it become necessary.

With the economies on both sides of the pond unraveling, Russian influence in former East Bloc regions growing, and U.S. boots already on the ground across Europe, it may only be a matter of time before the relatively innocuous poking and prodding goes critical.

That nuclear weapons are even on the table is frightening. What’s even scarier are the psychopaths who have their fingers on the buttons.

  1. Most sizable communist nation’s leaders have one thing in common: balls.

    Øsurper lacks the same. Sure, he sticks it to the pussified US populous w/ regularity. Yet he does so w/ confidence they will do not much more than bitch and, at the most, write some ‘angry’ letters to Congress retards.

    Would be nice to think that this is working in the favor of the US citizenry as they will eventually be fed up with tyranny and do the thing for which Americans were infamized -> overthrowing tyranny & oppression.

    Well, MLK had a dream (as did JFK) and look where they ended up.

    In truth, the vast number of Americans don’t know, don’t care to know or don’t care.

  2. Anyone who’s been in Russia lately will know that that country is not a Soviet Union Communist dictatorship anymore. In fact in many ways Russia is more free than what we are so pleased to call our country the USA.

    Russia is marching briskly to liberty whey the USA is descending into a tyrannical police state with a high tech overlay. That is the ugly truth.

    Look at what Antony Sutton says about the bankers not wanting Russia to be a free enterprise economy continue after the murder of the Csar by the communists.
