WASHINGTON — Russian fighter jets repeatedly veered 100 feet in front of a U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber over the Black Sea. Six Russian warplanes flew close enough to Alaska that Air Force F-22s scrambled to intercept them. And seven U.S. soldiers were injured when a Russian armored vehicle deliberately rammed an American patrol in northeast Syria.

Within a few days last week, smoldering tensions between the United States and Russian militaries flared around the world. Already fraught with fresh evidence of election interference, the relationship between Washington and Moscow has grown even more tense after the recent military encounters.

Joe Biden, in a speech in Pennsylvania on Monday, rebuked President Donald Trump for failing to publicly address the altercation in Syria. “Did you hear the president say a single word? Did he lift one finger?” Biden asked.
...
“Never before has an American president played such a subservient role to a Russian leader,” Biden said. “It’s not only dangerous, it’s humiliating and embarrassing for the rest of the world to see. It weakens us.”

Is it any wonder that our military is turning against Trump? They know he doesn't have their back.

Weak leaders don't do squat.

Russian interference doesn't come without a price.

Trump is too concerned with planeloads of uniformed thugs bent on mischief to worry about Russian planes. Russia is one of his supporters, after all.
