Sauce For the Goose?

By Laurence Vance

Defense officials claim that a Russian military jet performed an unsafe intercept of a US Navy P-3 Orion surveillance plan. The American pilots reported that the Russian jet came within five feet of the US plane. The Russian jet’s action forced the US Navy aircraft to end its mission prematurely.

The problem? Not Russian aggression. The US plane was flying over the Black Sea. It seems as though only libertarians are asking this important question: What the *$%@#*+! are US planes doing anywhere near the Black Sea? What if Russian jets flew over the Gulf of Mexico? Would not we think it was a provocative act?

The USG sure has a double standard.
