Red Dawn Alert: Marathon flight path of Russian supersonic bombers visiting Venezuela raises important questions; Kremlin admits Tu-160s left base in SW Russia, encountered Norwegian fighter jets over N. Atlantic, flew over E. Pacific, following SW coast of N. America, before flying over Caribbean and landing in Caracas; conclusion: Russian bomber crews must have initially flown E. over Siberia, later through airspace of some C. American ally (Nicaragua?)

Note: The other possible flight path of the Blackjacks would have the aircraft leave their base in SW Russia on October 28 and fly across the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Central America (via Nicaragua most likely), in order to reach the East Pacific Ocean and SW coast of North America. The Tu-160s would then re-cross Central America and the Caribbean Sea to reach Venezuela, which they would have skirted earlier. This is certainly possible but seems unlikely in view of the warplanes’ later trip to Managua on October 30. We propose the Siberia route, therefore, unless more official information becomes available.

    And the Not-So-Dead-Soviet-Union keeps on creeping in, but Communism is supposed to be “dead”:

    The Red Chinese are indeed pumping money into countries, such as Sri Lanka’s new airport that was built by them:
