Russia and America to go war
« on: June 19, 2017, 09:05:23 pm »
Some Syrian bombs landed too close to American troops in Syria, and the US shoots down a Syrian plane.    Russia is now offering to shoot down American planes.

Maybe too conspiracy theory, but my first thought was -  Can/will Trump now claim that he's really not Putin's bitch?

There's a worse (for us) theory of what may happen.  Russia won't dare shoot down a US aircraft.  A coalition one?  Maybe.  After all, Trump hasn't really been there for any of his allies.  That's an especially worrying theory, considering that Canada is still operating two aircraft over Syria on a semi regular basis.
