This is a warning folks, Russia is not our friend and they are a grave threat to YOU. How soon will it be before these 'training' missions turn into real world attacks. The USA has HAARP in Alaska and that seems to be where the Russian bombers are flying. HAARP is an electromagnetic weapon and it's capabilities are very secretive, due to the power of this weapon. Russia and China have their own version called Scalar.
Russian "Bear" bombers led NORAD crews to scramble U.S. fighter jets 46 times last year, according to records provided by military officials.
In one incident last month, a Russian Tu-142 bomber buzzed about 2,000 feet over the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier off Japan. U.S. fighters intercepted it south of the battleship.
In another, U.S. F-22s tracked two Russian Bear-H bombers lumbering over Alaska's Aleutian Islands on Nov. 22.
The Russian bombers "are not on any flight plan. They are not complying with the internationally accepted rules of operation. In the post-9/11 environment, it is difficult to have unidentified aircraft flying toward your airspace if you don't know who they are or what their plans are," Air Force Gen. Victor Renuart, commander of NORAD and Northern Command, said in an interview.
