The Cold War 2.0

There is the Russian hacking of American institutions. Their support of President Assad in Syria. The continued turmoil in the Ukraine. And now this: Russian Planes Buzz Alaska Four Nights in a Row

American and Canadian fighter planes scrambled to intercept two Russian TU-95 “Bear” bombers Thursday night, marking the fourth consecutive night of Russian probes near the Alaskan coast, U.S. defense officials said Friday.

At no point did the Russian aircraft cross into American or Canadian airspace, but the incursions into the Air Identification Zones — which extend beyond the territorial waters of the U.S. and Canada — represent a sharp increase in activity in the area, which has seen no Russian activity at all since 2015.

Interesting turn of events…from our third nearest neighbor. So are we entering Cold War 2.0?
