US general warns Russia on nuclear bombers in Cuba

It appears that the cold war is escalating with Russia as of late.  In June 2008, the Washington Times reported that Russian TU-95 bombers have stepped up provocative flight exercises off the Alaskan coast, reminiscent of Cold War incursions designed to rattle U.S. air defenses.  Apparently, TU-95 Bear bombers on 18 occasions the past year have skirted a 12-mile air defense identification zone that protects Alaska.

We are seeing with more frequency Russian warplane overfights on US Navy warships operating in international waters.  Russia signed an agreement to sell advanced weapons systems to Chavez’ Marxist government in Venezuela.  Now according the AP, Russia announced plans to fly bombers into Cuba.   A top US Air Force officer warned that Russia would cross “a red line for the United States of America” if it were to base nuclear capable bombers in Cuba.

There appears to be storm clouds on the horizon.  See article > Link
