    Wow, we invade a country, shoot down one of its aircraft, and then claim it's 'Self Defense.' Is is it just me, or is something very wrong with this picture?


    A US Navy F-18 shot down a Syrian military aircraft over Syrian territory Sunday, marking the first time the US has engaged in air to air combat since the US attack on Yugoslavia in 1999. US claims that the Syrians were targeting US-backed rebels were undermined by reporting by the generally pro-rebel Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which stated that according to its sources on the ground the Syrian aircraft was not attacking US-backed anti-government forces...

    It's very sad to see Trump following Obama and McCain's lead on Syria. We're backing very bad folks there. We shouldn't be in Syria. Period, end of story.

    The only thing this post is off on is it SHOULD say following Obama and Bushs lead.

    Russia's been a long-time ally of Syria's. We had no business invading Syria. To claim 'Self Defense' after invading a country, is preposterous Bullshit. I mean, imagine a country invading the US, shooting down aircraft, and then claiming 'Self Defense?' Would Americans accept that?

    there are a lot of brainwashed sheep in america and on this forum who are so brainwashed by our school system to not understand that it is a ONE PARTY SYSTEM designed to look like two so the sheep think they have a choice in who gets elected.

    too ignorant to understand that out last REAL president who followed the constitution paid the price for it on nov 22nd 1963 and that someone like ron paul who has the same views as kennedy did or an independent like gary johnson or ralph nader will never get elected because they are not part of the secret round table group the bilderbergers and that because of that , they never have a chance to get elected.:rolleyes:

    they want to keep fooling themselves into thinking this is a free county unable to accept facts it is a banana republic.:rolleyes:

    Russia has been an ally of Syria's for decades. The question that should be asked is what the hell is the US and other countries doing trying to overthrow Assad and fuck up the ME even more.

    Look how well Libya turned out. The terror militias even have open slave markets these days.
