.. playing tiddlywinks ?? ..

.. recently , while on a deployment cruise in the Baltic Sea , a US Navy guided missile destroyer [a DDG] was ” buzzed ” by a Russian Sukhoi Su – 24 fighter bomber . No , the Sukhoi was not on a training run . It meant business ..

.. It was configured in a war – like posture . No , it did not have training ” shots ” for missiles on itS RAils . It was set up on a war posture ,with war shots set FOR action on its rails ,ready for action ..

.. so what was the destroyer doing ? Nothing , apparantely . It did not even lock on with its guided missile radar ..

.. its CO should be court – martialed for failing to take any defensive action to protect his command . You let an adverrsary get thatclose to your ship like that , and what happens ?

.. You are dead meat ..
