said the general at the briefing.

He expressed concern about recent cases of interception by Russian fighter planes of the US Air Force, as well as overflights over US warships.

“I saw the Russian air force in action. These are professional troops and they can be much higher than that, ”said Goldfind.

    Not surprised? Strange ... After all, their smoked one has already said that the Russian economy, thanks to their (American) efforts, has been torn to shreds.

      Nothing strange! Identified some flaws, just praise. But I’m sure that they do not doze off at the VKS, they work.

        US generals have always known this, just until recently, thanks to the "reforms" of the Russian army before Putin came, they believed that Russia's former might had sunk into oblivion. And then the demonstration performances in Syria took them by surprise. And now there is a belated statement of fact. Well, better late than never.

        Recognize with reluctance in heart and teeth. And how would the Americans want it to be different: drunken flyers, rusty planes, etc. Like the great ukrov, for example.

    Somehow weakly fits with the recent screeches about the lack of professionalism of our pilots and the dangers of maneuvering ...

      And the people clung to his statement and are looking for "conspiracy", although he quite clearly expressed himself.
      I rearranged a little. He complains about the fact that our VKS are pros and can no longer do as before flying over their ships, do not intercept their planes like that.
      The whole question hassle is that.

      “I saw the Russian air force in action. These are professional troops and they can be much higher than that, ”said Goldfind.
      He expressed concern about recent incidents of hijacking of US Air Force planes by Russian fighters, as well as flights over American warships.

      But what is the occasion? They are intensively squeezing money out of Congress. They have been cutting spending on aircraft for more than a year.
      BABLO BABLO BABLO and nothing more. Do you think they are going to fight with us? laughing
      They just began to miss the dough. That's the whole causal relationship.

      The general just expressed his point of view as a professional. When he is required to give a political assessment of the actions of the Russian air forces, he will sing in a completely different way.

    Isn't this the general who called for shooting down the Russian Aerospace Forces planes to ensure the no-fly zone? After such praise, we are waiting for another intimidation of our people and begging for money for "training pilots against the Russians"

    With a tenfold superiority in the number of aircraft, they will be in our ears without end, if only we rested on our laurels and did not begin to increase the number of our aircraft at extra tempo.

    In my opinion, this four-star general realized that Trump really has a chance to become the next POTUS. So why not stay with the chief of staff of the Air Force and with him? He just recently took up this position.

    And what really is our VKS and in general, the US military and the Navy, the US military is well aware. They know, therefore, do not bother to us openly. Everyone is trying to bribe us indirectly.
