'Classic Cold War Strategy': Gorka Reacts to Russian Jets' 'Simulated Attack'
The USS Donald Cook was conducting flight operations in the Baltic Sea this week when two Russian Su-24 attack aircraft repeatedly flew by at an unsafe distance at high speed.
Dr. Sebastian Gorka appeared on "Fox and Friends" this morning to react to the incident that U.S. defense officials called a "simulated attack profile" and "the most aggressive act since the Cold War."
"They're probing. This is classic Cold War strategy," Gorka said, asserting that we should have responded, at a minimum, by putting planes in the air, instead of doing nothing.
"They will be running this tape for years on Russian television," Gorka said, adding that this is just another example of Russian President Vladimir Putin seeing weakness in President Obama and pouncing.
He said that the lack of a response to Russian aggression is deeply worrying to our allies, particularly the Baltic states, which were previously taken over by the Soviet Union.
Would this happen under a different administration? Ainsley Earhardt asked.
"If we had someone who was really interested in national security and treated our allies as real friends, this definitely would not happen."
