    Ever notice you rarely hear anything about the "city busters"? Neither side likes to talk much about them since one sub alone has enough nukes to literally destroy most of the planet and god knows how many of these subs are parked around the world with orders to fire their payloads once orders are received. We all need to pray that a nuclear war never breaks out between the US and Russia/China; the human race could quite possibly become a minor species or even extinct.

    Today, as I write this--Wednesday, April 19--two more Russian bombers came close to US soil.

    This time, however, it was not just 100 miles away; but a mere 36 miles.

    I quoted you in this regard previously; but I will quote you again:

    "Trump and Tillerson have the ability to repair relations with Russia. Methinks they should stop whining about how bad it is, stop taking actions that make it worse, and then make it better."

    This certainly suggests, to me--and, I would imagine, to most other unbiased readers--that you believe that Donald Trump (plus the Secretary of State) have the ability to "tak[e] actions that make" our relationship with Russia "better"...

    Correct, they do.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."

    Perhaps you should reread his statement.

    Why does it matter how close the Russian aircraft came, as long as they didn't enter US airspace? Is there a law like there is with the sea?

    Of course not, neither should he be trusted to side with Russian interest. He will side with his own interests.
