Russia to treat US planes flying over Syria as 'targets'
To me, the cold war never ended, it just took a breather.

Sorry, Mokey. It's opening for me, but I'll try to post some of it for you. It's on Drudge if you want a direct link in that way.
Russia to treat US jets in Syria as 'targets' after America guns down first regime warplane
Communication channel between Washington and Moscow to be suspended immediately
Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are also present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.
The country’s defence ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.
A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.
“All kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets,” the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.
The warning comes after a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian army SU-22 jet on Sunday in the countryside southwest of Raqqa – the first such downing of a Syrian jet by the US since the start of the country’s civil war in 2011.
Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces but Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against Isis militants.
Russia’s defence ministry said the suspension of its communication line with the Americans would begin immediately
I only have my phone right now and it the site maybe is made to accommodate computers only?
I also have turned the TV on here once in two months. It had CNN. That's it for news stations. Click off. Id rather have my news come a little late in slow trickles than trust anything on that news station.
Cut off communications. Man I'm out of the loop so bad. It doesn't even seem that long ago that our relations looked kind of on the road to decency.
Armed Russian jet comes within 5 feet of US recon jet
5 FEET? They coulda kissed at that point.
I read today that our Hornet was in a dogfight with the Syrian fighter. When 'o when was the last time that happened ?
