If it was a civilian airliner that close to Russia they would have shot it down no questions asked.

We should have shot them down - Vlad the Impaler would have understood the message, as he understands the message sent by our failure to do so. They probe with the bayonet - when they find flesh, they probe deeper - when they find steel, they back off.

And yes, they would shoot a civilian airliner down that came that close to their shores - early 80's - KAL flight.

O stranger, tell the Lacedaemonians that we lie here, obedient to their command.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Indeed.

They shot down a Korean Air 747 that strayed over Soviet airspace in the 1980’s.

Jean Kirpatrick called them liars in front of the UN General Assembly.
