Japanese Maritime Defense Force reporting a total of 18 Russian navy vessels near their island...

When a rival smells blood..OR FEAR...they will act boldly.  I can't help but wonder if this isn't in part a response to our Pentagon's actions to mitigate the risk to our force because of the pandemic.

Marines being told to isolate themselves in their barracks (Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen too).  All exercises being cancelled.  An aircraft carrier taken out of commission because of an outbreak.

Don't get me wrong.

I believe all that and possibly more might be prudent.

However our enemies are not pausing..and apparently neither are our allies. JMSDF patrol aircraft spotted those ships.  Are we maintaining the same type of deterrence patrols?  I ask because I don't know.
