NATO on Monday launched its regular nuclear deterrence drills in western Europe.
The 30-nation alliance has stressed that the “routine, recurring training activity” -- which runs until October 30 -- was planned before Moscow invaded Ukraine and is not linked to the current situation.
It will involve US B-52 long-range bombers, and up to 60 aircraft in total will take part in training flights over Belgium, the United Kingdom and the North Sea.
The nuclear drills - which do not involve live bombs - are taking place amid heightened tensions after Russia repeatedly threatened nuclear strikes in Ukraine following major military setbacks on the battlefield there.
“Steadfast Noon” is likely to coincide with Moscow’s own annual nuclear drills, dubbed “Grom,” which are normally conducted in late October and in which Russia tests its nuclear-capable bombers, submarines and missiles.
The drills that will involve 14 countries and up to 60 aircraft, including the most advanced fighter jets on the market and U.S. B-52 long-range bombers that will fly in from Minot Air Base in North Dakota, the statement said.
This drill takes place every year, like Russia does, but always over different countries and locations. This time it involves locations & training flights to be conducted over Belgium, Great Britain and the North Sea.
Have you considered that, perhaps, the 'undamaged' photos were either taken before the damage.....or after repairs?
Here's one with WWII photos :
By your logic....the existence of the 'undamaged' photos "proves" WWII never happened???!!!
"U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress leads a formation of aircraft including two Polish air force F-16 Fighting Falcons, four U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons, two German Eurofighter Typhoons and four Swedish Gripens over the Baltic Sea, June 9, 2016. The formation was captured from a KC-135 from the 434th Air Refueling Wing"
Now they wake up to the sight of a grey cold dawn, and hundreds of millions of disgusted citizens.
The Stoltenbergs of the doomed West might have been alluding to the classic film High Noon, but if so it was a pathetic allusion. Nothing noble about cowardly NATO.
North Sea any departure from that area would seem to
provide Russians with plenty of notice... dunno the
exact distances to major russian targets but there's
gotta be a few hudred miles at least... and these are
planes, not missles...

RIA news agency said the plane was an Su-34 and crashed during a training flight from a military airfield. TASS said the crash was caused by an engine fire. The Defense Ministry said Su-34 bomber came down after one of its engines caught fire during takeoff. It said that both crew members bailed out safely, but the plane crashed into a residential area, causing a fire as tons of fuel exploded on impact.
God bless our troops and pray for our enemies - foreign and domestic - that they may be given a change of heart.
I'm prepped, hope y'all are too.
Just have to hope the new general will do these type of things and that way can win. Failing to do his job like the way the Putin does will result in Russia losing. So this guy better step up the game a few points now and start hitting back. Hope he is not another disapointment like the Putin has been for 20 years now.
Paul your a flaming Flamingo!

Ya maybe if Russia decides to FINALLY do something then we can worry about it then. As for me I do not give a damn. Seeing this shithole FINALLY payed back will make me very very happy. I just pray that it FINALLY happens before I am too old to be here any more.
and offer up the other 2 cheeks for slapping, lol
Sounds kinda fag there Paul?
Paul, Jesus said in Matthew 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
I am reporting this to Hal. Sex PERVERT statements are NOT ALLOWED here and this is your third in 2 days. I will be phoning Hal sometime today about it. You better tone it down ASSHOLE. These statements are going to him today. I don't want to be forced into that but for comments like these it is being reported. Your comments from last night are all the proof needed to show your pervert sex shit and it aint gonna be happening here ASSHOLE. Not if I can do something. Now your mixing bible things into your perversions and posting it here.
Just wait Fucknuts.
Russia has never threatened nuclear strikes in Ukraine. Putin has always spoken that in case of serious threats for his country, Russia will use all means at its disposal, included nuclear bombs which it will launch to thousands km of distance from its territory.
Russia is no so stupid to blast a nuclear bomb in a country so near to its borders, which would carry with the winds radiations in its own home. The nuclear narrative bombed on the media 24/7 belongs entirely to the Western big liars for their planned nuclear false flag in Ukraine with which to blame Russia and provoke WWIII.
So far nobody has done anything to those liars in this country or any other nato shithole either. So the lies continue. On tv on radios and every where else these liars can get the stories out to the sheeple. These pieces of shit operate with impunity. Why not go after some of them? Most would be easy targets at least at first.
This does not hurt anyone ........seems you may have the REAL problem in your mouse control ...... scroll past , kinda like your radio ..... you don't listen to things you don't want to hear ...... one just turns the dial to another station.
being innocuous. Only excessive cruelty.
Or excessive dogmatic religiosity.
Or, the habit of putting people down
Of course Harness comes immediately
But this guy meanize 1962 just seems lost
in a sea of words. He is not mean. He is
not rude. He sure isn't cruel.
He isn't stupid either.
Has some info and videos about what is actually happening versus running around with hair on fire. Knowledge is a powerful thing.
Think mocking condemnation.
Think cynical indictment.
Their prize, Kiev, is getting the shit
kucked out of her, and all they can do is
repond with tinker toys and cowboy and Indian War games.
The real and the unreal.
They should of canceled their games.
They further impress the idea of NATO and
Sirens are sounding across Ukraine

Russia Freezes Ukraine: Ukrenergo Administrator Beaten – Relentlessly Bombing Downtown Kyiv – Waves of Shahed-136 Swarm Attacks
Today's sweeping Russian bombardments against targets in the heart of Kiev are a prelude to ugly developments. Russia literally swept the Ukrainian capital for the first time since the start of the war by making widespread use of Shahed 136 kamikaze drones.
According to information, at least three waves of attacks were carried out with Russia taking off from Belarusian territory at least 30 drones for the Kiev region alone.
It is obvious that Russia's goal is to evacuate the population of Kiev and get them out of the capital before the ground offensive begins.
In addition to the psychological shock to the population that drone bombings deliver within densely populated areas, Russia hit a power station and the main power distribution station.
Accelerating the frost across the Ukrainian space is Russia's second goal in anticipation of the arrival of winter.
Several drones hit the Ukrenergo facility on Symon Petlyura Street in Kyiv.
Ukrenergo is the operator of Ukraine's electricity transmission system and the sole operator of the country's high-voltage transmission lines. It is 100% owned by the Ukrainian government.

Sweeping kamikaze drone attacks in Kyiv
Explosions rocked the central district of Shevchenkivskyi in Kyiv early this morning, announced the mayor of the Ukrainian capital, Vitali Klitschko, via the Telegram platform, calling on citizens to rush to shelters. According to the mayor, apartment buildings have been hit and rescue crews have already rushed to the scene.
The head of the services of the Ukrainian presidency, Andriy Yermak, spoke for his part through the same platform about attacks with unmanned aerial vehicles-kamikaze.
"The Russians think this will help them," Mr. Germak quipped.
Earlier, Ukrainian media released videos of Russian kamikaze drones over Kyiv during the morning attack, while one of the videos shows one of the drones being shot down.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko displayed debris that appears to be from a downed Russian drone. Several residences were damaged.

The mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, spoke of explosions in the city center from drone strikes that damaged several apartment buildings, and a fire in a non-residential building. Ambulances and fire engines have rushed to the scene, Klitschko added, clarifying that information on whether there are any victims is still unclear.
According to the Guardian, citing local officials, one of the blasts took place near Kyiv's central railway station. Photos posted online by journalists showed people waiting in an underpass to take cover, with initial reports suggesting there were no casualties among passengers.
At the same time, authorities called on Israel to provide Ukraine with anti-aircraft systems to counter Russia's Iranian kamikaze drones.
“The Iranian drones attacking Ukraine were probably built to attack Israel. Israel knows better than anyone what it's like to fight terrorists.
We are asking Israel to give us air defense systems and defensive weapons - they are extremely important when we are dealing with terrorists," said Adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry Anton Gerashchenko.
"They wanted to hit a part of the energy infrastructure," commented the adviser of the Ministry of the Interior. According to the data so far, the infrastructure of the network manager was hit.
At least five loud explosions were heard early Monday morning in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
“I appeal to the people of Kyiv: do not go to the city center without an urgent need. Also, don't ignore air raid warning signs. Let's be aware and take care of our own safety! Let's stay united!” emphasized the mayor of the city, Vitali Klitschko. In the center of the capital, traffic is blocked on several streets.
"Two more blasts stay in the shelters!" Klitschko urged residents earlier via Telegram.
Ukraine: Over 30 settlements were affected in the last 24 hours
More than 30 settlements in Ukraine have been hit by Russian strikes in the last day, according to the Ukrainian military, while sirens have sounded twice in the day in Kiev.
The Russian hammering continues with the latest update from the general staff of the Ukrainian armed forces stating that the strikes hit civilian areas, according to the Guardian.
The target of the Russian bombings was an area east of the capital Kiev, as well as others in the eastern regions of Donetsk, Kharkiv and Zaporizhia, as well as in the southern regions of Dnipropetrovsk and Kherson.
"In violation of the rules of international humanitarian law ... [Russia] is hitting critical infrastructure and civilian homes," it said. He added that Russia also continued to shell the position of Ukrainian troops "across the contact line".
Flying their fun and games practice make-believe
Games in the skies.
Russia is doing it for real.

Such a major put down.
Worse than spitting in a person's face.
NATO IS ALL DRESSED UP FOR WAR...

All the while their boy is getting bitch slapped.
