War planes from four countries clash in the skies

A – 50 Awacs Russian aircraft, the type of craft which Japan and Korea claimed violated their airspace

In a scene out of a Hollywood military suspense thriller planes from Russia, China, Japan and South Korea participated in a tense stand-off where shots were fired, literally, over or near Korean air space.

Each country has issued differing stories on the matter with South Korea stating that 300 warning shots were fired at the Russian plane which they claim violated their airspace. Korean officials are claiming that this was a joint Russian-Chinese military exercise. Russia has stated that it was a “joint patrol” with Chinese long-range aircraft.

Moscow furiously denies the allegations that another countries airspace was violated claiming their planes were intercepted during a planned flight over neutral waters.

    If all you have is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.
    With all the weaponry the “super powers” have accumulated over the years, war is inevitable.

    As Bob Marley said in Natural Mystic:
    “Many more will have to suffer
    Many more will have to die.”

    Let CARICOM and Dominica think is US that lime trouble. See these folks including the US have been in constant tug for world superiority and who can spread thier influence culture and domination among other nations and peoples. It is all about money, greed, power, influence, and feeling of superiority. Poor nations with corrupted leaders who lead by dependence and begging are generally weak and expose citizens to these human ills. More money is spent on building bombs and weapons and instruments of war than on attaining peace. Bombers and weapons will never bring peace. The talk of world peace is nothing but a myth. I say just fight and get it over with. Destroy each other.

      The world peace that they have in mind is wiping all the people off the earth. Then it will be peaceful and they won’t have to hassle with the human race.
