    putting the snark aside, this does step up the game quite a bit.

    It does. Syria is a powder keg between the US and Russia, no easy answers

    Actually the answer is easy. War.

    It's just not one I really want. I'd much rather a more difficult answer with less dying

    there's too much anger in people to *not* have a war before too much longer. we hate ourselves for just being different anymore and run to any side who will hate what we hate but if they hate all of us, we're just dooming ourselves.

    it's about to get hectic.

    I repeat for the 100th time, all of this, while China pays a surrogate in North Korea to rattle America and expands islands into the South China Sea. On top of, decimating the American workforce and economy.

    Seems China is much smarter than Russia. They don't need to declare war, they act to subvert American influence by stealing jobs, under valuing their own currency and investing in T-Bills to give the impression they are "good people". What a racket. Use the same tax dollars stolen from the U.S via cheap labor and use the money to buy T-Bills. All while loudly building their military and quietly eyeing Singapore for reunification and I imagine, Japan for a more broader economic and territorial expansion. Who will stop them then? The E.U? LOL

    God help us all.

    The US was acting in accord with the rules of engagement. If a Russian aircraft tries to shoot down one of ours, we will note which airfield the Russian jet came from...and render that airfield inoperable.
