The U.S. had not shot down a Syrian regime aircraft before Sunday's confrontation, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. While the U.S. has said since it began recruiting, training and advising what it calls moderate Syrian opposition forces to fight IS that it would protect them from potential Syrian government retribution, this was the first time it resorted to engaging in air-to-air combat to make good on that promise.
Moderate Syrian opposition forces? It seems we digressed now and we're back to the John McCain Obama presidency. I give up, it's been proven time and time again there are no such thing as moderate Syrian opposition forces, the last time that shit was tried they ran off and joined ISIS.
This could escalate into a U S Russia proxy war, or worse. Deep State wins again.
