Russian Bombers Intercepted 55 Miles From Alaska Insane Nuclear Game Of Hide And Seek

The Russian Bear is not yet ready to hibernate in a more peaceful lair
Two bombers, two fighters and two tankers come within 55 miles of Alaskan air
This is a game that has happened 50 times in the last five years
A dangerous game of hide and seek played too close to our frontiers
This time two F-22s scrambled to intercept and the Russians turned back
Another reminder as we cut our military that our vigilance cannot go slack
The bombers and tankers must have lit up NORAD’s radar screens
Without stealth technology the planes would have been easy to be seen
In a game of hide and seek what if the U.S. decided with a B-2 to hide?
Flew to the borders of Russian airspace and loitered for an hour just outside
If no Russian jets appeared because their radar to stealth was blind
We notified them we had been there and perhaps these games should unwind
Hide and seek with nukes is a far too dangerous game
A mistake and the world as we know it goes up in flames
Sadly another example of a world that the U.S. no longer fears or respects
Knowing it faces from an administration words not acts and words it can reject
