Re: US sends bombers to Europe in message to Putin

The article on the backfires it said they were in response to the Ageis ashore being deployed to Poland and Romania.
I thought the Ageis ashore had been deployed to Eastern Europe pre Trump.
Did they change their minds or rotate them out or EE?

Re: Pakistan/India - March 2, 2019

Am I incorrect in understanding this to be a greater escalation than anything thus seen in recent standoff. It seems interesting how when scenarios were played out with a potential US launch especially during the Cold War that it would most likely be a Dr Strangeglove event. However when we watch ot...

Re: Trump suggests Brazil could join NATO

Not sure. Why use B-52s to send a message? In any modern Russia/NATO nuclear scenario, the B-52s would be sent to their positive-control points, not into Russia. They'd never make it through Russian air defenses. Their mission would be mopping up any tertiary targets left over after the missiles ha...

Re: Trump suggests Brazil could join NATO

Note in Airborn of current B-52 flights in Europe specifically Kalengrad. There were multiple flights of B-52 over Eastern Europe. Six Buffaloes have been relocated to England. Also B-52 flights in east by Japan. Is this message for Merkel, NATO, or Putin. Not sure. Why use B-52s to send a message?...

Re: Air intel 18 march

Is this many signet aircraft up all over unusual? As well as two B-52 patrols up on each of Russia’s frontier.
I do not follow Air open source enough to know if this is unusual. However from what I remember from previous post this seems heavy.

Re: Pakistan/India - March 2, 2019

Seems it might have been more serious as speculated than in past flare ups.

Re: Venezuala - The Next Steps

China says it is ready to help Venezuela to restore its power grid. If Venezuela officially accepts the help, and China provides it, it will be interesting. Potentially, it is much more than small skirmishes in the South China sea. China ain't going to do it for free. Venezuela will have to sell it...
