Russian Su-27 fighter jet causes U.S. drone to crash in the Black Sea

Another day in President Joe Biden's America, another day closer to World War III. Literally.

According to Fox News, a chilling situation over the Black Sea emerged this week when a Russian Su-27 fighter plane collided with a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone.

An unnamed U.S. Defense official told Fox News, "The jet in question was one of two Su-27s flying in tandem when the collision occurred in international airspace over international waters. The drone's propeller was damaged, forcing the unmanned aerial vehicle to ditch in the Black Sea, west of Crimea."

A statement on the frightening situation was released this week by the U.S. European Command and U.S. Air Forces in Europe – Air Forces Africa (USAFE-AFAFRICA).

At approximately 7:03 AM (CET), one of the Russian Su-27 aircraft struck the propeller of the MQ-9, causing U.S. forces to have to bring the MQ-9 down in international waters. Several times before the collision, the Su-27s dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner. This incident demonstrates a lack of competence in addition to being unsafe and unprofessional."

U.S. officials slammed the Russians for continuing what they described as a "pattern" of Russian aggression, especially Russian pilots.

It added: "This incident follows a pattern of dangerous actions by Russian pilots while interacting with U.S. and Allied aircraft over international airspace, including over the Black Sea. These aggressive actions by Russian aircrew are dangerous and could lead to miscalculation and unintended escalation."

In a shocking revelation, John Kirby, National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, said these kinds of "intercepts" of American aircraft have happened before, even recently.

It is not uncommon for there to be intercepts by Russian aircraft of U.S. aircraft over the Black Sea, so this is not an uncommon occurrence. And there have been even in just in recent weeks, there have been other intercepts," Kirby said.

He added: "But this one obviously is noteworthy because of how unsafe and unprofessional [it] was, indeed reckless that it was, and causing the downing of one of our aircraft. So, it's unique in that regard."

As of Wednesday, the U.S. has not announced a meaningful response to the incident, further proving how weak the strongest nation on Earth is under Biden.

One can safely bet that America's adversaries, once again, are laughing and smoking cigars after the latest embarrassment.

It's a truly scary time for America and the world.
