Russian bombers in Cuba

Does this sound familiar? It will to anyone old enough to remember 1962...
Russian daily Izvestia earlier on Monday cited a senior Russian military source as saying that Russian strategic bombers could be stationed again in Cuba, only 90 miles from the U.S. coast, in response to the U.S. missile shield in Europe.

"If these plans are being considered, it would be a good response to the attempts to place NATO bases near the Russian borders," Gen. of the Army Pyotr Deinekin told RIA Novosti.

"I do not see anything wrong with it because nobody listens to our objections when they place airbases and electronic monitoring and surveillance stations near our borders," the general said.
This is obviously Russian posturing and blustering in response to American posturing and blustering in response to Iranian posturing and blustering in response to Israeli posturing and blustering in response to... etc etc etc

This gets so tiresome, and it's not without risk. I wish some adults could be put in charge...
