Guam & Bear.

This is coolbert:

NO WHERE else is this reported. It has now become SO ROUTINE is is not worth reporting?

"Russian Bombers Threaten Guam"

"Two Russian strategic bombers [Tu-95] circled the U.S. island of Guam last week in what U.S. defense officials say is the latest in a series of nuclear provocations by Moscow."

. . . .

"Friday’s flights [14 Nov.] were the second time in the past two years that Russia conducted unusual long-range bomber missions around the island. Two Tu-95s circled the island on Feb. 12, 2013 and were intercepted by F-15 jets."

. . . .

"The flights took place a day before President Obama arrived in Brisbane for the summit where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin."

NOT SO MUCH threaten as these planes on an intelligence and reconnaissance mission? Or more for intimidation sake this is all done?

IN this instance there was not even an intercept response on the part of American fighter aircraft.
