Two Russian TU-95 Bear bombers were intercepted in international airspace off the coast of Alaska by two US F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft on Monday, the Pentagon confirmed to CNN.
The intercept, which was described by a US military official as safe and professional, took place about 100 miles from Kodiak Island after the Russian aircraft flew into the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone.
Russian state television has no doubt who is unpredictable enough to bring the world to war in the North Korean crisis, and it’s not the reclusive communist dictator Kim Jong-Un.
According to Dmitry Kiselyov, the Kremlin’s top TV mouthpiece, the riskiest is Donald Trump, the man Russian officials and propagandists hailed just a few weeks ago as just the kind of leader the world needed.
In the latest sign of the Kremlin’s abrupt about-face on its erstwhile American hero, Kiselyov pronounced Trump “more dangerous” than his North Korean counterpart.
One thing I had noticed was that the US began a severe decline into hyper rabbitry when the Soviet Union collapsed. When the US had an enemy – an “Evil Empire” looming over our nation, it seemed to provide some deeply needed subconscious stimulus. It stimulated the amygdala with deep reverberations of ominous threat. I think men need some enemy that threatens their groups, almost to give their lives meaning.
Such a threat motivates, unites, focuses, and gives purpose. It is an amygdala exercise which triggers all the positive behaviors we associate with K-selection.
President Trump opened a back channel communications pathway to President Putin through Erik Prince. It would be funny if President Trump, master of psychology and cognitive neuroscience, made a deal with President Putin to play the roles of enemies on the world stage. We will bomb allies of Russia (after warning them so they can pull their people and nobody gets hurt), and probably at some point Russia will attack an ally of ours (after covertly warning us so we can get our people out). Soon the world will once again appear as a chessboard, as the two global superpowers face off for world domination.
As President Putin and Trump restart the Cold War, both Russians and Americans would re-ingroup around their nations, become driven to see their side win, and begin to focus on the important things that hold nations together – adherence to group-norms, adherence to morality, and a drive to contribute and make our nations great again. Differences between Americans would fade, as we joined together in the face of a common enemy, and Russians would become even more united as a people and more K as they sought to defeat the aggressive Americans.
I have no idea if this is what we are seeing, but I would not be surprised if in eight years the Russians are pointing to America as a global bully, and Americans are pointing to Russia as the evil empire again. It would be brilliant persuasion, as President Trump and President Putin secretly congratulate each other on their brilliant leadership of their people, and how each has made their nation even greater than it has ever been.
Hopefully if they do follow this path, they will take measures to make sure that if some neocon cucks or similar leftist psychopaths get in office someday in the future, they cannot exploit the situation to create the global war the cucks want to use to kill all our warriors and eliminate the K-strategy in America. We just dodged that bullet with Hillary, and we have heard the Establishment Cucks whine, so we know the DC establishment is looking for that.
It is a brilliant strategy, but not without risk.
