Friday February 15, 2013 a meteor ripped through the sky in central Russia sending fireballs crashing to earth. Fragments of the meteor smashed into the Chelyabinsk region, in the Ural Mountains injuring over 1,000 people. Later that same night, San Francisco Bay stargazers in America saw the blue flash of a meteor which caused a loud sonic boom as it fell, breaking apart and spreading meteorites in the North Bay. In many ways this disaster resembled a nuclear attack…a possibility for which Russia is better prepared than we are.
Friday February 15, 2013 two Russian nuclear-armed bombers circled the Western Pacific Island of Guam, equipped with nuclear-tipped missiles. The two Russian Tu-95 Bear-H strategic bombers were followed by U.S. jets that had scrambled from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam. The event occurred just hours before President Barack Obama’s state of the union address.
Military analysts said the bomber incident was highly unusual and believe Moscow was sending a strategic message to Washington. The bombers flew over a thousand miles from the Russian Far East and according to Defense officials they were likely equipped with six Kh-55 or Kh-55SM cruise missiles that can hit targets up to 1,800 miles away with either a high-explosive warhead or a 200-kiloton nuclear warhead. In contrast, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima was 13-kiloton.
