Confirmed. First air-to-air kill for US since Allied Force in 1999.

Assad-Russian-Iran-Hezbollah-Trump-Erdogan axis was hitting the Kurds via SAF and Pentagon responded.

Let's wait for the Pentagon to hold the line against the above when the reprisals come.

Maybe Trump will send his Full Force MMA bodyguard round the Beltway to request compensation on behalf of his creditors.

Wonder how that will work out.

I'm going to be confident and say nothing will happen! I should also add that I'm not under the infuence of drink or drugs! Only miffed that I was missed off the QBHL again!!!!!!! :D

You're probably right but now USAF've downed two Iranian drones and a SAF SU22 ... No policy guidance from DC so they make it up as they go along.

Russia responded by saying they'd down anything west of the Euphrates (so, Raqqa, where Russia doesn't fight as it's held by ISIS for now ... :barracuda: and others are about to march in along with US and Kurds) but quickly qualified by saying they would just lock on to anything west of the Euphrates. But they've said the same to Israel before after the Hezbollah section of Russian-controlled Damascus airport got bombed again ... but it's understood Russians turn their radars off at night as part of their original deal with Israel.

But then on Monday a RUAF Su-27 got within 5 feet of a US plane over the Baltic ... wonder if they meant 50 feet ... so *accidents* may happen.

:quick:

PS. QBHL ... hang in there, they'll get round to you eventually :.

Russians getting a little upset and a bit excited about this footage of Russian Defence Minister Shoigu's plane getting intercepted by an F16 over the Baltic: then an SU-27 Flanker turns up just in the nick of time ...

Well this is all getting very interesting. For the life of me I can't figure out what the Rooskis and the Yanks are trying to do in Syria.

Agreed, they really have no idea. It'll precipitate a war of some sort
