The U.S. Air Force scrambled intercept planes to respond to two separate incidents involving Russian bombers on July 4, according to reports.

Two pairs of Russian Tupolev Tu-95 bombers approached the U.S. west coast, Fox News reported. The first incident occurred at roughly 9:30 a.m. off the coast of Alaska; the second  happened at 10 a.m. off the coast of central California. In both cases, a pair of F-22s scrambled to intercept the bombers.

It is not known if the Russian planes were armed but the Tu-95 are capable of carrying nuclear weapons.

The Russian bombers were intercepted before they entered U.S. sovereign air space, which extends 12 miles out from the coast.


What the hell, Vladimir?

We'll be fighting the Russians an Chinese in the near future. Russia will invade Texas because their flag is offensive. Get back to me in October.

The TU-95, nicknamed the Bear, has been the staple of the Russian strategic bomber force for 40 years or longer. It's the Russian version of our B-52 bomber.

The TU-95 is pretty cool in that it has twin props on each engine. We used to scramble our F-14s to escort these big bastards away from the carrier I was on back in the Cold War years. We saw them daily when we were sailing around in the Caribbean.

Back in '12 Romney might've had a chance had he bothered to warn America about the growing Russian threat, rather than laugh it off during the Presidential debates. Thankfully mass media was there, lest we forget his only political goal was to wage war on women.

Putin knows that our "leader" won't do a damn thing about it, so he's going to push the envelope as far as he can.

At least we stand a chance of winning. Invade California and its victory in a day for the Russians.
