OMG, are our leaders so incredibly stupid that they…

…do not realize that Russia parking long range bombers in Cuba and Venezuela in no way, shape, form, or anything else bears absolutely any resemblance to JFK's Cuban Missile Crisis. That crisis was understandable, having Russian nukes parked 90 miles off our shores did indeed pose an immediate and dire threat, as a missile launched at us from such close range would be impossible to deal with in the ten minutes or so it would take the missile to hit.

Long range Russian bombers are an altogether different, and far less serious threat to us, as I have yet to see a Russian bomber that can or could outrun an American F-16 and the awesome speed and range of the missiles an F-16 can carry.

Let 'em rattle their swords all they want. Russia would be way, way outgunned if they sent long range bombers towards or across our borders.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! The Red Menace has returned!

Bovine excrement.

Not to mention the other part of the 'cuban missile crisis', the USA had previously installed missiles in Turkey.

Part of the negotiation was that we removed them and USSR would remove the Cuban missiles.
