Canadian Jets Intercepted Russian Bomber Before Obama's Visit

TORONTO — Fighter jets were scrambled to intercept a Russian bomber in the Arctic as it approached Canadian airspace on the eve of President Barack Obama's visit to Ottawa last week, Canada's defense minister said Friday.

Peter MacKay said the bomber never entered Canadian airspace. But he said two Canadian CF-18 jets met the bomber in international airspace and sent a "strong signal that they should back off."

Huzzah to our brave boys in the sky, running off those filthy commies from an attempt at despoiling a foreign dignitary and sending Ivan and his comrades back to their hidey holes in the Kremlin.

Hell with 20mm cannon and all that too-expensive air-to-air missilery, load up Canuck jets with a puck shooter. Tear right through a MiG.

Or shower Russia with leaflets bearing a picture of Don Cherry in his finest. They'll never cross the international dateline again. ;-)

We're saving the big Cherry bomb for when these Rooskies really want to go toe-to-toe, Randal...We had to spank them a little in '72, perhaps a little history refresher for these vile Reds may be in order.
