Gearoid_Murphy writes: bbc has a story about US jet fighters being scrambled to meet Russion Tu-95 turboprops, something that hasn't been done since the cold war. This coincides with recent reports from Georgia about a Russian missile found on their territory, reportedly fired by a Russian jet tracked by radar as well as the recent diplomatic tiff that occured between Russia and Britain over the murder of a former Russian spy in London from radioactive poisoning with iostopes that identified it as coming from a specific Russian reactor. Whats with the Russians all of sudden?, I thought we were getting along just fine.
