    Hmm. Scratch one Syrian pilot. They ain't gonna like this. Oh, well. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. :rolleyes:

    This is gonna get somewhat interesting... but I doubt the "other side" is going to do anything in regards to retaliation.

    In effect, we just played our "Trump card" and the other players at the table now know just how serious we are. ;)

    No fun being the world's greatest superpower if you can't throw your weight around every once in a while.

    Keep in mind that "US-backed rebels", created by Barky and Hildebeast are unlikely to be "friends" of the US in any sense of the word other than taking our money and weapons for now.

    Remember that during the Korean and later the Vietnam
    wars, it has been proven that many of the planes flown
    by "client" nations of the USSR were actually flown by
    Russians and I wouldn't be surprised to learn that these
    "Syrians" speak Rooski and read Cyrillic not Arabic.
