Video has emerged of a NATO F-16 intercepting Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu’s plane as if to say, “Look how easily I could turn you into a fiery, Earth-bound meteor.”

The Defense Minister’s plane was being escorted by an Su-27 Flanker, which positioned itself between the NATO Fighter and his boss. He then flashed the underside of his wings to the F-16 to warn him that he was armed and would take action if the Western aircraft didn’t break contact.

The event took place on June 21, 2017 over the Baltic Sea in international airspace. The confrontation comes just one day after a Russian jet came within five feet of a U.S. RC-135 reconnaissance plane in the same region. It was also a day after the Russian government announced it would shoot down any American jet in western Syria.

There’s palpable tension in the skies after the U.S. has belligerently carried out three air-to-air kills over Syria in the last couple weeks. While Russia may talk tough, an air war with the U.S. and the West is not winnable, and they know it.

A shower of 60 Tomahawk missiles, one MOAB dropped, and three air-to-air kills in two weeks… Come on, guys. What’s it gonna take for you to realize President Obama is long gone, probably sitting to pee in some golf course porta-potty?

THE United States is back. You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.
