Putin Pays the Navy a Compliment

Remember the Baltic Sea incident between our ship and a Russian fighter? It's all our fault:

Russia accused the United States on Wednesday of intimidation by sailing a U.S. naval destroyer close to Russia's border in the Baltics and warned that the Russian military would respond with "all necessary measures" to any future incidents.

By all means, give the captain of USS Donald Cook the Navy's highest commendation.

After all, who else could have maneuvered a mere wallowing warship into close encounters with a Russian fast-mover?


I mean, that poor ill-trained sap of a Russian pilot was helpless as the destroyer just about did barrel rolls under that flying garbage truck which was unable to evade our aggressive ship handling.

Let's just hope--because by nature I'm a forgiving man--that Putin doesn't have the pilot of the Su-24 shot for his shortcomings as a flyer.
