Letter to the editor: Russian bombers in Caribbean

| Wednesday, January 9, 2019 1:30 a.m

On Dec. 27, the Drudge Report included the headline “Putin setting up nuke bomber base on Caribbean island.” Where are the mainstream media in regard to this threat? I have not seen anything printed in American newspapers or mentioned on any news shows. I have not heard any congressmen, senators, generals or even the president comment on this development.

In the 1960s, President Kennedy stood up to the USSR when nuclear weapons were installed in Cuba. President Trump must tell Putin to remove these bombers at once or they will be destroyed.

Our government should also help the people of Venezuela who want to oust the tin-horn dictator who apparently is OK with this. What was unacceptable in the 1960s is still unacceptable now.

People elected to office from both parties have taken an oath to protect and preserve the United States from all threats real and perceived. If accurate, this is a real threat. If there is no response from the media, elected officials or our military leaders, then the people must realize that those in government are traitors and must take matters into their own hands. They must all be charged with treason.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
