RUSSIAN BOMBERS TEST THE GOOD OL' RAF. OR DO THEY?
Something's Rotten in the State of England...
July 18, 2007 (LPAC)--Russian Air Force Commander Col. Gen. Alexander Zelin said that British press reports of Russian bomber flights headed toward London were untrue, and that any alleged connection between ongoing Russian bomber flights and the current diplomatic tensions are "rubbish," the Russian news service Ria Novosti reported today.
Lyndon LaRouche said today that the comments by Colonel-General Zelin are extremely significant, and should be circulated widely, as against the Times of London propaganda aimed at building a phony Cold War climate against Russia.
"Reports that Russian bombers were flying towards British airspace are untrue," Air Force command aide Col. Alexander Drobyshevsky quoted Colonel-General Zelin. "The long-range aircraft were on a scheduled mission over international waters. Bomber flights in international airspace are planned at least six months ahead, and we inform all countries concerned about them in advance."
Zelin was responding to an astonishing report on The Times of London website today, claiming that Royal Air Force fighter jets had to scramble to intercept two Russian strategic bombers allegedly "heading for British airspace" yesterday. This report was written by The Times Diplomatic Editor, Richard Beeston, who claimed tht "the spirit of the Cold War returned to the North Atlantic once again
Responding to the provocation, Voice of Russia commentator Victor Yennikeyev wrote. "Something is rotten in the United Kingdom."
"It is surprising that the British diplomacy, famous for its subtle and refined methods, is resorting to clumsy cold war-era tricks," Yennikeyev wrote.
I would say the desperation to get that Albert Pike WW3 restarted is causing panic and mistakes in certain circles.
