      I wonder what the Russian populace was fed?

      I could only imagine the headlines.

        Shoot jets down,then Russians dispatch TU-22 and sink Cook then US launch nukes then Russia launch nukes... then what?

        Big boys play their game in their way. They play same game few decades.
        Let them play it.
        Dont worry, these two wont shoot on each other. Only some,not very bright people thinks that they should take out jets or sink Cook.
        Luckily,big boys already forgot about that and move on.
        Didn't happen that way with the Turks.

          Nothing like you are suggesting began when the Turks shot down a Russian aircraft a few months ago that was doing something it should not have been...
          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            That being said, apparently SecState Kerry was reported as saying the captain of the destroyer was within his rights to shoot the Russian planes down. That would have been interesting and the Russians were asking for it.
            Its all rusty because I never use it, but there are specific zones. I don't think anything allows for anything getting that close to the ship. I wish the Captain had shot them down.

              Turks are unimportant and it was war zone.
              Besides,Turks are dealt with in another way.

                I'm sure he was tracking them. I think they'd have peeled off if he had lit up the CIWS and fried them with AEGIS running full blast in acquisition mode. Russian pilots know what that system Can do, and I doubt they'd play chicken if they were getting a missile lock tone.

                That is unless they were under specific orders to play chicken.

                I'd have lit them up with a missile lock at 2nm, and if they decided to get that close, gone for splash with guns (They're Russian jets, why waste a missile that's just as valuable ). If they didn't peel off after getting the tone, then they're either suicidal, on an attack run, or under orders from Putin to buzz the ship. In either case, that deserves a paddlin'.........

                    THAT would be 100 times more stupid, than what the Russians did.

                        Boys play with toys,no big deal.
                        Good for both to do some tests.

                                One jet and they respond .

                                That's some expensive jet.
