South Korean and Japanese fighter jets intercepted a Russian A-50 after it invaded both of their airspaces

Beriev A-50 "Mainstay"
On Tuesday, a Russian A-50 "Mainstay" AWACS plane invaded the airspaces of both South Korea and Japan, forcing both countries to scramble fighter jets to intercept it. The breach of South Korea's airspace was so abrasive, the South Koreans fired over 300 warning shots in an effort to get the plane to divert course, but the Russian pilots ignored the warning shots and attempts at communication.

Russia is denying the Beriev A-50 ever entered either nation's airspace, essentially calling both countries' defense departments "liars" on an international stage.

Why South Korea and Japan would both lie about a Russian military plane invading their airspaces is anyone's guess.

Iran Claims to have Captured a Foreign Oil Tanker...which doesn't seem to exist

Iran is bragging about capturing a "foreign" ship after Iranian smugglers were caught smuggling Iranian fuel out of Iran.

This "foreign" ship has not been claimed by any actual nation, nor has any nation reported a missing ship in the Strait of Hormuz.

U.S. Women's Soccer Team Accused Of Snubbing Star Player For Christian Views

Jaelene Hinkle

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington Times. Fox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.”

But none of that apparently mattered to the women’s team. The Irish Times, which called Hinkle “the finest left-back in the NWSL,” wrote in June, “Hinkle likely would have been a fish out of water on the uber-woke women’s national team, some of whose biggest stars are openly lesbian, raising questions about whether she would have thrown off the squad’s chemistry.”

That’s because Hinkle has been quite open about her Christian faith. In 2015, Hinkle objected publicly to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that legalized same-sex marriage, writing on Instagram:

Jesus didn't come to save those who already believed in Him. He came so that the lost, rejected, and abandoned men and women would find Him and believe. I believe with every fiber in my body that what was written 2,000 years ago in the Bible is undoubtedly true. It's not a fictional book. It's not a pick and choose what you want to believe. You either believe it, or you don't. This world may change, but Christ and His Word NEVER will.
