A little funny war news to panic Ned Price.

State Department spokesman Ned Price called it a ‘brazen violation of international law’ and said the US has summoned the Russian ambassador.

Two Russian Su-27 warplanes intercepted the US Air Force spy drone before one clipped the UAV’s propeller just after 7am, sending it crashing into international waters, the US European Command said in a statement.

Several times before the collision, the fighter jets dumped fuel on the MQ-9 drone and flew in front of it in ‘a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner’, it added.

It wouldn’t be Clown World hype without the environmental factor. I regret they also didn’t describe the incident as “racist”. To BOC’s approval, I’m sure, Russians “don’t fear the Reaper”.

GAE video makes the GAE look extra GAE:

As does the Russian video:

Larry Johnson’s excellent take on the incident.
