Russia jets make ‘simulated attack’ passes near U.S. destroyer: U.S.

April 14, 2016

Two Russian warplanes flew simulated attack passes near a U.S. guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday, the U.S. military said, with one official describing them as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.

The repeated flights by the Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes, which also flew near the ship a day earlier, were so close they created wake in the water, with 11 passes, the official said on Wednesday. The planes carried no visible weaponry, the official said.

A Russian KA-27 Helix helicopter also made seven passes around the USS Donald Cook, taking pictures. The nearest Russian territory was about 70 nautical miles away in its enclave of Kaliningrad, which sits between Lithuania and Poland.

“They tried to raise them (the Russian aircraft) on the radio but they did not answer,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding the U.S. ship was in international waters.

    …On Tuesday, two Russian warplanes flew simulated attack passes past the USS Donald Cook?


    If the Jet wanted to attack he would do it at a safe stand off distance, NOT 30 feet away.

    Did all the poor Navy Snowflakes change there shorts OK!

    ….”The jets flew as close to the ship as 30 feet away, precipitating wakes around the ship.” OhhhhNo! Did dat rock da little boat? Anyone get seasick?

    Awww, Poor babies, did da big bad SCARY jets splash water on the US Navy? Did you get WET? Did you all CRY and call your MOMMY?

    ……..Well Snowflakes, get even and lets start WWIII. ….YeaHaaaaa!

    After all the US Navy was obviously near enough to the Russian base at Kaliningrad to spark the understandable yet very predictable, paranoid Russian reaction. They do have tactical nukes there.

    WRT Kaliningrad and Poland. Any Polish helicopter the USS Donald Cook was in contact with is a very short range craft.

    That is akin to Windsor, Ontario having tactical nukes next door to Detroit.

    Kaliningrad is to Russia what Guantanamo Bay is to the USA.

    WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED under OUR LAST PRESIDENT…BUT the Baracky pussywillow has been discovered as being Balls free and has them Laughing at the KREMLIN…

  • The pilots’ refusal to identify themselves and the apparent attack mode with which the planes buzzed the vessel are sufficient reasons for defensive action, including the shooting down of the planes.

  • Barrustio says:

    Why wait for a real attack…the rationale would be “I was in fear for the safety of my crew, their lives and mine, so I blew their asses away”…ANYBODY can understand that.

  • Mark Tercsak says:

    I understand we have a Pussy-cat President, but the commanding officer should have shot down both planes . Screw the Sons of Bitches.
