MOSCOW—The United States and Russia on Tuesday played down a weekend flyover by Russian bombers of a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Pacific, with Moscow defending the move as routine and the Americans calling it unprovocative.

Russian air force spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky said in a statement carried by Russian news wires that the Tu-95 bombers didn't violate any rules of engagement when they flew over the Pacific on Saturday.

I don't mean to come across as authoritative or pushy, but:

"Note that the word "News" does not appear in the above list. That the media has deemed something newsworthy in no way suggests that it is a topic of sufficient "seriousness" for this subforum. For example, the latest celebrity fiascos and gossip are far from guaranteed to qualify. Note, also, that an element of "human drama" in no way guarantees a subject will be appropriate for this subforum--there will be no hesitation in eliminating the first person to start publically lamenting about being dumped by his or her significant other, or somesuch. Subjects that are plainly academic/scholarly in nature can generally be safely assumed to have a place here; if the topic does not obviously fit this criteria, a good question to ask oneself is "how significant ( or potentially so) is this topic to the world at large?""

Posted in the stickied topic above. I know it's not my discretion to decide which threads that are created on the topic of a news article should stay or not, but there's already a thread concerning the relations of the United states and Russia. Maybe a mod can make the call here :P

Call made. Relegate further discussion on this subject to the existing thread, or not.
