The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming. ...Roger G. is still on watch.

Our dear friend Roger Gardner (1936-2009) developed and maintained one of the most respected blog sites of its kind.  RadarSite was named after a real radar site in Labrador...Roger was stationed there sometime during the late 50's and the mission, among other watches, was to keep tabs on Russian aircraft that skirted the North American coastline.  As with many other political decisions Roger's former radar site was decommissioned (closed) for whatever reasons the politicians rendered.  Now that we have weak politicians running the show the Russians are back up to their old tricks and may be testing our resolve, but I have a feeling that Roger is still on watch (he must have signalled the Canadians). ~ Norman E.

Communist Bloc Military Updates: Canadian fighter jets repel Russian bombers near Labrador coast, Ottawa's DM: Moscow gave no advance notice

This past Wednesday Canadian fighter jets repelled two Russian strategic bombers near the coast of Labrador. "The response as always was a rapid, effective deterrent," explained Canada's Defence Minister Peter MacKay, adding: "They were in the buffer zone. They did not give us any advance notice. We certainly weren't aware of what if any weapons were on board." One senior Canadian official described the attempted Russian incursion as "not the usual s--t."
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't wonder what Roger would have thought of this story or another.  To me he was the GOLD STANDARD of bloggers.
