    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military on Sunday shot down a Syrian Air Force fighter jet that bombed local forces aligned with the Americans in the fight against Islamic State militants, an action that appeared to mark a new escalation of the conflict.
    The U.S. had not shot down a Syrian regime aircraft before Sunday's confrontation, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. While the U.S. has said since it began recruiting, training and advising what it calls moderate Syrian opposition forces to fight IS that it would protect them from potential Syrian government retribution, this was the first time it resorted to engaging in air-to-air combat to make good on that promise.
    The U.S.-led coalition headquarters in Iraq said in a written statement that a U.S. F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian government SU-22 after it dropped bombs near the U.S. partner forces, known as the Syrian Democratic Forces.

    Of course it was shot down for the first time, they don't fly well after they crash and explode into a fireball.
    Pffffffffffffffffffffff! Buh Bye Big Ears

    DU dummies will now have some new fodder to test their writing skillz, it's all Trumps fault you know. Maybe all those people should start one of those old school hippie groups and move near Yellowstone and live in peace.

    'Attacking our allies.' Well, they were our allies this month, anyway.

    There is a new sheriff and old Ivan better be careful with respect to what threats they make, like for instance overnight saying they will start targeting our aircraft, that will be a huge mistake on their part. Why they might not even get a 15 minute prior warning before the next missile attack.
