Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Deeply Concerned

This news very troubling news. According to Sputnik, Russia is suspending communications with the coalition forces.  This communications channel is what they use to give advanced warnings to each other in order to avoid unecessary conflicts. Without it, both Russia and the US could run into each other and that spells trouble.

Russian missile defense will intercept any aircraft in the area of operations of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, the ministry said.

A syrian jet was shot down yesterday by an F-18E Superhornet.  The coalition claimed that a Syrian warplane attacked the US backed militants.

The Syrian Observatory for Human rights (SOHR) counters this claim however. The SOHR states that the Syrian jet did not attack the SDF.  The SOHR gets its intel from ‘on the ground’ observers, and also from embedded militants. So while the SOHR’s intel may be biased towards pro jihadist views, the SOHR’s corroboration of Syria’s side to this particular incident is very groundbreaking.

Sputnik news writes:

“In areas where Russian aviation is conducting combat missions in the Syrian skies, any flying ojects, including jets and unmanned aerial vehicles of the international coalition discovered west of the Euphrates River will be followed by Russian air and ground defenses as air targets,” the Russian Defense Ministry announced.

This is deeply concerning. If I were Assad, I would triple my security detail, and I would be mindful of saboteurs.  A major shift in allegiances, and a major escalation such as this always brings in saboteurs.  A lot of people are freaking out. Some are shitting their pants. Some are chanting like occultists, praying for a third world war.

Whatever happens in the next few hours, I truly hope somebody reaches out and tries to solve this diplomatically.  Perhaps a good compromise would be to find out who gave the order for the F-18 to shoot, and to have him explain his actions. Something like that could potentially avert a major disaster.  That would at the very least give Russia a reason to cool down.
