Stuck Reset Button

Making some news this week, at least on the Saturday of a three-day weekend:
Two Russian bombers, capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles, circled the U.S. island of Guam in the Western Pacific this week, U.S. military officials told NBC News. U.S. Air Force F-15 jets scrambled from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam to intercept the bombers.
According to one military official, the Russian Bear bombers remained in international airspace, the encounter between the U.S. and Russian aircraft “stayed professional” and there was no incident. The official said it’s impossible to determine whether the Russian bombers carried any nuclear weapons.
Provocative and reminiscent of the Soviet era. One could easily tie this action to the fact that Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov is refusing to return John Kerry's phone calls--a story trending all week long.  Surely this is all tied to Syria, which sounds reasonable. But nobody in the press is mentioning the reset button anymore.

MORE 2/16/13

In light of the above is it surprising that some Russians would suspect the US of launching some kind of secret fake asteroid weapon, especially since the impact area was Chelyabinsk?   Oddly enough, another fireball meteorite was seen near the San Fransisco Bay Area last evening.   Sometimes one has to wonder about Russia and their connections to certain things in the past, such as Victor Bout or even obscure individuals like Sergei Davidenko (and his connection with the local area, still a cold case).   Add to that Dick Cheney's persona from 9/11 in point, from his most recent video (heavily edited) appearance:

Go back to the quote from Woodward's book attributed to Cheney.  After all these years, wonder who he was talking about?
