Raptors Intercept Bears

Post by Rob Lister » Sat May 12, 2018 3:21 pm

First, I gotta say, this shit probably happens everyday. But that it is reported has meaning.
Giddyup, those are Russians: American F-22s flew out to monitor two Russian TU-95 "Bear" bombers flying close to Alaska on Friday, CNN reports.
Giddyup? Really? You wrote that? You need smacking.

The F-22s stayed close until the Russians left a stretch of mostly international airspace along Alaska's coastline, per Fox News. The nuclear-capable bombers didn't enter US airspace, but not everyone took it kindly: "Putin's Russia is in the nuclear intimidation business and is willing to burn to lot unnecessary bomber fuel," a former Pentagon weapons expert tells the Washington Free Beacon, which broke the story. "Threatening people with nuclear weapons is Russia's national sport." Russian bombers haven't flown that close to Alaska since F-22s intercepted TU-95sthere last April.

So, this also happened last month? How about everyday last month. Why are you just now reporting it?

A Russian TU-95 is an impressive machine. In 1960 their capability scared the bejesus out of every real 'merican. In 1980 we saw them regularly as they did their flybys of our carriers. But today I find it impressive they can find enough fuel to fly it.

As to the Raptor

A machine so responsive that it can kill a pilot with too heavy a hand.

Wait, I thought Putin was our friend?
It's "pea-can", man.

It is the result of collusion at the highest levels.

It's also a massive heap of bullshit. If either side intimidates the other enough, someone pushes the button. The other side follows suit. World of Humans ends.

That is all.

And, need I point out, it's not terribly difficult.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

I think most people would pick Toronto to beat Chicago even if it is at Soldier's Field.

Well our top pick already had his playbook stolen, so maybe a basketball team could beat them.

I am sad that "Fitzy's" NFL Fan Therapy series has not done "Da Bears!"

I think even he has gotten over the Epic Ass-Rapage of Tony "My Pussy Hurts!" Eason.

Apparently, nearly all of the actors he gets are actual fans of the respective teams, so maybe he does not know any Bears fans?

Remember . . . it could be worse . . . you could be a Jets fan:



love the "bitchy" Gnats fan.
