Escalating in Syria

See what I mean?

Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.

The country’s defence ministry said the change in position would apply to all aircraft, including those operating as part of the US-backed coalition.

It will also suspend a hotline between Russia and the US set up to prevent mid-air collisions.

    Well, then. If The Donald is really, really serious about taking out the Syrian Gummint, the Russkis will be really, really, serious about stopping The Donald.

    Frankly, that damnfool Obozo should have been impeached, convicted, and tossed out of office before he got a chance to start more stupid wars.  Now The Donald knows how Dick Nixon felt.
