Bloodyvostock, Russia - (Rioters): Russia's National Air Force Museums have been ordered to re-activate their prized historic exhibits, remove their mothballs and spruce up the propellers as President Vladimir Sputum today ordered the immediate resumption of long-range strategic bomber flights.
Sputum told Russian TV news today that the reversal of a 15 year policy to abandon military spying flights was necessary because "Russian was becoming the laughing stock of the G8 nations" without such a show of natural air superiority.
"We've seen the Tom Cruise film Top Gun," Sputum said today, "and our heroic national aviators are all very keen to get their own back for that slur on their manhood."
Missions will commence this weekend and will target countries bordering Russia who have nuclear-tipped cruise missiles.
"Of course, that does not include our good friends in China but Taiwan had better watch out!
"Last year we received over $500 million in useless Taiwanese imports such as poisoned pet foods, children's toys, defective transistor radios and other examples of industrial incompetence designed to test out patience and belittle our nous as consumers," Putin warned today.
