This and similar activity by Russian forces has angered U.S. officials and prompted the lawmakers on Tuesday to take steps aimed at halting Russia’s “dangerous and unprofessional intercepts” of U.S. forces, according to a copy of the new measure.

The resolution—backed by Senate Foreign Relations Committee members David Perdue (R., Ga.), Cory Gardner (R., Colo.), Ron Johnson (R., Wis.), Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), and Jim Risch (R., Idaho)—calls on Russia to stop endangering U.S. forces and makes clear that the United States has a right to operate in all international waters and airspace.

“Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia has become increasingly assertive and aggressive militarily,” Perdue said in a statement provided to the Washington Free Beacon. “We’ve recently seen Russian military personnel taunting U.S. military units with provocative military maneuvers.”

“Not only are these actions irresponsible, they endanger the lives of American and Russian soldiers alike and fly in the face of decades-long agreements between our two nations,” Perdue said. “Further, Russia continues to build up its military and cyber capabilities, and poses direct challenges to stated U.S. interests. Today, we come together to condemn Russia’s provocative and antagonistic behavior.”

Sooo, they gut the military (supposedly from what I am hearing) and then make threats.  I should just cut off one of my legs and try to kick my own ass with that logic.

Our boys and hardware are there to provoke the next war. Let's have a vote. Do we need military bases and fleets all over the damn world? Bring them all home. Quit giving our tax money to support the Zionists, "freedom fighters" --  whatever you call our "allies." Stop the madness now. Just do it, voters. Take back your country.  And mine.
