Did President Barack Obama just put a Red Line on the Spratly Islands? Russian fighter bombers are flying nearby Japan air space to greet Obama's arrival to Tokyo this week.
According to the Global Post, "The Japanese Air Self-Defense Force scrambled fighter jets after three pairs of Russian Tupolev Tu-95 bombers were detected flying around the Japanese archipelago Friday, the Defense Ministry's Joint Staff office announced."
Russian fighter jets have flown above the Sea of Japan.
As reported by the Global Post, "While they did not violate Japanese airspace, this was the sixth day in a row in which Russian military planes were spotted flying close to Japan."
President Obama has not yet issued a public statement on this brazen encroachment of Japan's airspace.
