This is coolbert:
As it was not so long ago in the Black Sea as it is now in the Baltic!
The USS Donald Cook, operating in the Baltic during joint operations with Polish military assets having the ship "buzzed" by Russian Su-24.
"Russia 'does not understand' US reaction to plane flyby"
"Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday the U.S. Navy ship that was buzzed by two Russian warplanes in the Baltic Sea this week could have opened fire under U.S. military rules of engagement."
"The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) was conducting flight operations with a Polish helicopter Monday when two Russian Su-24 attack aircraft came within 1,000 yards of the destroyer, flying just 100 feet off the ground. The following day, a Russian jet came within 30 feet of the destroyer."
. . . .
"The U.S. believes the Russian actions may have violated a 1970s agreement meant to prevent unsafe incidents at sea. The agreement was between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union but remains in force with Russia."
"Russian jets buzzed the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea in similarly provocative fashion in April 2014."
NOT MERELY THE DESTROYER BEING "BUZZED" BUT THE ACTION OCCURRING DURING FLIGHT OPERATIONS A TAKE OFF AND LANDING BY THE POLISH HELICOPTER EITHER IN PROGRESS OR IMMINENT.
Exactly the type of "incidents" that were common during the era of the Cold War. American aircraft carriers during routine take off and landing operations or organic warplanes having their path [the American carrier] blocked or impeded by the ubiquitous Soviet trawler.
DANGER EXCEEDINGLY WITH DELIBERATE INTENTION!
