Powerless Demonstration: US military on Russian aircraft maneuvers


Last week, the US Navy reported a dangerous incident in the air when the Russian Su-35 Flanker-E approached the P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine ship at a dangerous distance of 25 feet (about 750 cm) above the Mediterranean Sea. A few days later, another Flanker carried out similar maneuvers with respect to the P-8, writes the American military portal Military.com.


Some senior US military officials said that the actions of Russian Air Force pilots are unprofessional and unsafe, and one of the goals of such behavior is to demonstrate the power of Russia to everyone. It is especially important to do this during the coronavirus pandemic to show that the country's authorities are not inactive.

The retired General Frank Gorenk, the former commander of the US Air Force in Europe, said that the actions of the Russian air forces as if inform the whole world, that Russia, as a military power, still plays a large role on the world stage. Due to falling oil prices and rampant new virus economy country is experiencing blow after blow. Such actions become a "demonstration of powerlessness." This is a fictitious demonstration that it is too early to dismiss Russia.

If earlier, during the Cold War, such incidents did not have any continuation, now, in the era of social networks, videos of such maneuvers can have a viral effect. The Su-35 is a good aircraft, and demonstrating its fighting qualities is a good way to show it to the whole world.

US Air Force General Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy, in turn, expressed the view that NATO rivals such as Russia would continue to try to find the weaknesses of the US military and its allies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The American general is not aware that the crisis is also in the USA and the number of unemployed in the USA will soon exceed the “hellish" 1929 year of the Great Depression?

      The American general is aware that the minimum unemployment benefit in the United States is significantly higher than the salaries of those Russians whom Putin calls the middle class.

        648 dollars. Multiply by 75 to get less than 50. Do you earn so little? (I will teach you how to work - do you want to?) No, rather you are many ... hang noodles on your ears. Well, you get the point ...

          How much I earn is not your concern. And before you teach anyone, you should yourself learn the basic rules of communication - not to get personal, otherwise someone can hang on your ears instead of noodles on your whole body. Well, you get the point ...

        Bendyuzhnik Miron, before writing different nonsense, you need to at least have an idea about it. This area of ​​unemployment legislation and the amount of benefits is only outlined at the federal level, the execution and refinement of the document is left to the municipalities, which is why the conditions for providing social unemployment benefits vary from state to state, as well as the amount of payments.

        State of New York - $ 268 - the highest allowance
        Mississippi -163 dollars.,
        South Dakota - $ 190.,
        Idaho - 238,
        Puerto Rico -94,
        Alabama - 164 dollars.
        California - $ 172
        etc. over 50 states.

        It makes no sense to write completely. Therefore, before scratching your tongue, first checkmate. part
        learn. There was no lie to the team, judging by your comments, you should be familiar with the expression.
        Good luck to you.

          You, a good citizen, conscientiously rewrote some of the numbers from the table of allowance sizes in decomp. states of the United States, but I don’t know, knowingly or absent-mindedly, forgot to mention that the amounts given in the table are weekly, not monthly, so in the USA it has long been customary to calculate wages. Therefore, in terms of the month, these amounts should be multiplied by the number of weeks, and it turns out that the average monthly unemployment benefit in the United States in 2019. amounted to $ 1050. In the words of my great fellow countryman M.M.Zhvanetsky - "Careful!" bully

          Those numbers that you cited are not unemployment benefits, they are weekly allowance for the poor who have a job but a small salary and / or a large family. And unemployment benefits are paid in hours. And paid еженедельно, i.e. in 40 hours. Maybe $ 8- $ 10 per hour, i.e. per week $ 320- $ 400 per week. Depending on the conditions may be paid from 6 months. up to 12 months.

    A lot of chatter about a beautiful life in the USA. And a constant comparison with Russia. But not everyone who scratches their tongues knows reality. The unemployment benefit is the highest in Massachusetts - 337 dollars., Then in New York - 268 dollars., 94 dollars. in the state of Puerto Rico, an average of 50 states - 234 dollars. Legislatively in the USA, the amount of benefits and conditions are spelled out in general terms. Municipalities decide everything, it is they who set the level of benefits. So, about 1100 dollars - this is one idle talk, from a lack of information. In reality, the situation is much worse. In the United States today, more than 55 million people live below the poverty line. Every 5 minor American lives on a food stamp system. Life of 50 million US citizens by 67% is idle in lines for food stamps. The queue is formed already at 5-6 in the morning. In 2016, NY police discovered more than 80 miniature neighborhoods in which homeless people lived. American society is sounding the alarm: the crisis of the homeless is equated with an epidemic. 60% of students in state schools can not afford to have breakfast in the dining room. About 20% of poor people in the US have "negative capital." This means that the total amount of their debt exceeds the amount of funds actually available to them. In the period 2008-2016. the number of US citizens owning a home has declined by 10%. 6% of the poor are pensioners. This applies to those people who have a small working experience. Most of the American poor live in trailers or special shelters. The ratio of homeless people living in boxes is approximately 7: 3.

    And the virus, what side did he drag here?
    Yes, it’s clear to everyone that our authorities have messed up with the virus and medicine in general. But how does this relate to nerve-racking for spy planes?
