Great: US Predator Reaper Drone Collides With Russian Fighter Jet, Forcing the US to Crash the Drone Into the Black Sea

So great, now we've actually got air assets engaging with each other.

RUSSIA FIGHTER JET STRUCK PROPELLER OF U.S. MILITARY "REAPER" DRONE, FORCING U.S. TO BRING IT DOWN OVER BLACK SEA - U.S. MILITARY STATEMENT

EUCOM is shouting that it's Russia who is acting "reckless" and "incompetent" here.

And also, unbelievably: "envrionmentally unsound."

That'll learn 'em.

A Russian jet struck the propeller of a U.S. Reaper drone over the Black Sea, forcing U.S. forces to bring down the drone, the Pentagon said, one of the first direct military confrontations between the two nations' forces since the war in Ukraine began more than a year ago.

Before the collision, which occurred around 7 a.m. local time Tuesday, two Russian Su-27s "dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner," said the U.S. European Command in a statement. "This incident demonstrates a lack of competence in addition to being unsafe and unprofessional," said the EUCOM, which is responsible for U.S. military operations in the region.

Yeah, it's called a WAR, and you've brought the US into it. Did you not know what happens during a WAR WITH RUSSIA, Pentagon?

After the collision, the U.S. brought down its drone. The drone was conducting "routine operations" over international airspace in the Black Sea, EUCOM said.

"Routine" operations. Uh-huh.

National security spokesman John Kirby said he briefed the brain-damaged president, and then also shouted about how "unprofessional" and "unsafe" Russia is behaving in a WAR the US is fighting against it.

President Biden was briefed Tuesday morning on the incident, White House national security spokesperson John Kirby told reporters, also calling it "unprofessional" and "unsafe."

"It is not uncommon for there to be intercepts by Russian aircraft of U.S. aircraft over the Black Sea," Kirby said. "And there have been, even in just recent weeks, there have been other intercepts. But this one obviously is noteworthy because of how unsafe and unprofessional it was ... in causing the downing of one of our aircraft."

Aw shucks our Predator Reaper drone wasn't doin' nuffin', it was just hanging out on the stoop playing with marbles and doing routine operations, when all of a sudden for no reason these Russian Jet Bullies came out of nowhere and started makin' trouble for it.

It's good to keep a sense of humor as the brain-damaged fake president shuffles and stumbles the nation into World War Three.

Did they have to wake President Sleep-and-Shit up, btw?

On Monday's installment of Morning Joe, former White House Press Secretary-turned-pundit Jen Psaki was called upon to share her thoughts on Biden's speech about two bank failures that shook stocks on Wall Street and sent ripples through global markets.

But, instead of emphasizing the substance of Biden's remarks -- the president insisted Americans "should feel confident" after the biggest bank failures since 2008 -- Psaki decided to make her point about the timing of his remarks. That's where things went south.

"It's important to note, President Biden does nothing at 9:00 AM," Psaki emphasized -- apparently not realizing that such a quip wouldn't land the way she intended. "He is a night owl," Psaki continued, "so the fact that he is doing this at 9:00 AM anyway speaks to how vital the White House recognizes it is for him to have his voice out there conveying that to the American public."

Yeah, Biden's a "night owl." That's why he starts sundowning at the exact time the Red Lobster starts its Early Bird Dinner discounts.

Update: Why was the language in the statement so weak and soy?

Reuben Hick nails it:

But this one obviously is noteworthy because of how unsafe and unprofessional it was .

Still using trigger words to cater to the emotional-language smooth brains.

Dang, that is it exactly. This language is carefully selected to rile up its Safetyist Pink-Haired Nosering base, who might one day remember that they usually pose as being "anti-war." So they're using language to appease them, telling them Russia is behaving like a Young Americans for Freedom member on a college campus, and therefore should be eradicated from the face of the earth.

That is the whole point of accusing Russia -- Russia, for Heaven's sake, author of the Chernobyl disaster -- of acting in an "environmentally unsound" manner.


Even I'm up by 9am. (Most days!)

But President Sleep-and-Shit really likes to sleep in, huh?
