This is such a hateful nightmare. (BTW did you miss putting all the names in the To box or just didn’t do it yet?)
I’m in a sort of constant background (or even foreground) nervousness about this.

Things are getting hot.
Syrian fighter jets would last about 20 seconds in a fight with the Typhoons, assuming the pilots were Russian “Mercenaries”.
Les than 20 seconds if the pilots are Syrian.
Not bloody likely mate. They are fast but not that fast. However, point taken. The Syrians beat feet rather that getting shot up then down.
It makes me sick to think that all it took was an illiterate community organizer to bring us all to the brink of WW3 If he is trying to have his Bay of Pigs moment he had better wipe the white stripe off his back and be prepared to not only protect this country, but Israel as well. Sadly, since he is such a coward, we just might be in for a ton of hell on earth.
I see boots on the ground in our near future thanks to the jackass and his pathetic admin.
Why test British defenses? Didn’t they vote “no” to war with Syria?
We’re those typhonies part of the 2 active squadrons the brits are currently flying?
They did not win anything. The Syrian pilots did exactly what they were suppose to do. They were only testing the RAF response. It was not a actual attempt at bombing Cyprus.
Wasn’t too long ago that Turkey was playing chicken with Greece the same way in the same neighborhood.
Anyone else have the image of a bunch of kids poking a guard dog with a stick, then screaming when it turns and snaps at them?
Scripture is clear there is to be a limited war which ushers in the one world leader.. it is also noticeable that the west, particularly America, are to not be an influence. Perhaps this war will escalate to the point of a limited nuclear exchange, resulting in the demise of the US. Hopefully they will limit their attack to key military targets, dc, ny, la. And leave the rest of us alone because we clearly don’t want this war as far as the fly over country is concerned.
They’d get creamed in air-to-air but even a blockheaded Syrian tribal (much less a Russian) can be taught how to point an anti-ship missile in the right direction and let ‘er rip.
Not good. Not good at all. This says volumes about us, more about England, and has dire suggestions for the future.
Never mind, I was thinking of a different bird
When we bombed Libya the Brits provided air bases in the UK ( you remember when our “oldest ally” wouldn’t let us use their air space) this looks like a warning to the Brits that their air bases, if also used by the USAF, in Cyprus are within striking distance of the Syrian air force. Although the Brits will not actively bomb Syria it doesn’t mean they won’t lend us the use of their bases and/or “intelligence” gathering facilities on Cyprus.
