Russian Jets Buzz USS Cook on the Baltic Sea

Russian Game of Chicken on Baltic Sea

Putin rightfully thinks that Obama is without any spine and his rhetoric Putin does not scare
Putin is not moved by empty redlines and predictable but toothless hot air
In international waters in the Baltic Sea the USS Cook was buzzed by two Russian jets in attack mode
Heading just off the water looking like in preparation to missiles at the ship unload
Putin is playing a very dangerous game of chicken both here and off our Pacific Coast
Testing us to the limit so to his suffering citizens of Russian strength he can boast
Our rules of engagement are such that we probably cannot fire first
Probably not even a warning burst
Putin will continue to this game of chicken play
Tough to be a U.S. Navy ship handcuffed but put in harm’s way
We didn’t shoot at the Iranians and were humiliated
Putin when it comes to pushing the line against us will never be sated
Until like the Turks who when a Russian jet entered its air space
We shoot a chicken playing jet an antiaircraft taste
The games of chicken will end
It’s a message Putin will respect and it’s a message we need to send
