The media is abuzz with reports of a Russian spy ship off the northeast coast of the
are demanding action and expressing outrage.
You’d think we were being invaded.
Good grief, this is exactly what we do to countries around the
world. The Russians have every right to
be there and I have no problem with that. US
Having said that, if I were the Navy/Military I’d give some thought to scheduling our pilots for some low level flying training in that area. If some pilot happened to make a closer than “safe” pass, well, that happens during training, doesn’t it?
I’d also consider having some Navy ships conduct close quarter maneuvering drills in the area. If they happened to inadvertently cross paths with the Russian ship and violate some rules of the road, well, again, those things happen during training.
Finally, I’d send some ships and electronic warfare aircraft to conduct training in the area. If that training happened to interfere with the Russian ship’s communications and whatnot, well, that happens during training, right?
Seriously, this is a golden opportunity for the
to send a message to US in response to all the Russian actions that are
aimed at sending messages to us. Russia
