Russians Threaten to Shoot Down US Jets

As reports that the Obama administration are, once again, considering launching airstrikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Russian Defense Ministry on Thursday issued a clear warning that it will shoot down American aircraft if such a campaign was launched.
Breaking: Russian Defense Ministry Threatens to Shoot Down US Jets in Syria (VIDEO)

I hope we don't intend to bomb Assad forces again but Obama and Hillary want him out of the way and a no fly zone so it wouldn't surprise me if they did. The only problem is if we do we will most likely end up in a war with Russia. So many things have happened lately like the breakdown of relations between the Russians and us, the bombing of the convoy and the bombing of the Syrian military. Things seem to be getting out of hand.

Thoughts?

So if they do, Russians can very well shoot at any American aircraft.

If they don't, Syria will continue airstrikes on hospitals & killing innocent victims.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. It won't get any better if the Donald is elected, trust me.

Not... happy... I was so hoping the US and Russia would work together against Daesh.
Distrust is over the top and bombing the Syrian army wasn't helpful. Even the Russian embassy in the US is tweeting memes that claim the US supports terrorists.
Russia Posts Provocative Tweet Warning Us On Syria, Mocking Earnest

If President Putin and the Russian embassy both support it then yeah, it won't be only Volodin that's at Putin's back. Shoigu and Konashenkov want more global power so Matvyenko will probaly be at his back too.
Russia already has the Naval base at Tartus and now a new treaty includes the Hmeimim airbase in Latakia for an indefinite period. If they do take out US planes with the S-300 or S-400 missile systems, it will probaly start a hot war with Russia.
Russia Lawmakers Mull Indefinite Military Presence in Syria
More global power.
Russia considers military bases in Vietnam and Cuba: agencies

This may be part of it too and it's probaly SVR RF agents or moles. Three were caught trying to send US missile guidance systems tech to Russia.
3 Charged With Unlawfully Shipping Military Tech to Russia

The SVR RF probaly wants to show Obama where the lobsters live in the winter. They're probaly seriously active in the US atm and more moles could be waking up. It doesn't really matter who gets elected in November. Either way the cold war is heating up.

I hope this is all sabre rattling and rhetoric. Both sides know a war between the US and Russia could turn nuclear.

Not surprised there are spies among us.

Correction - My bad. I was all over the diplomat issue too when I posted. It's the GRU that plants the military spies but the SVR RF is seriously active too and at the Russian embassy.

There's way too much tension out there and everybody knows that Putin was dancing from the stove in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine. I'm seriously NOT happy with the Russian media atm. Borodino could glow in the dark. :eek:

zOmg! Nobody wants to say "Холодная война" but Putin suspended the Nuclear Pact with the US.

Translation - Now Russia will have more weapons-grade uranium to make more bombs and everybody knows they've been testing the Topol ICBM at Plestetsk.

They're also staging Civil Defense drills all over Russia.

Don't say cold war and totally don't say hot but my ears are NOT clapping and I want to know WHERE they buried the dog. Even Chavez wanted to fly a Tu-160 and Russia has serious plans in Latin America.

That could seriously make the Cuban Missile Crisis look like a tea party...
