Hmm. I wonder if US will check Wikipedia, if they wanted to know if they got Su-27 or not before they went in. Of course they'll still need active support from Russia, and the advanced avionics are missing, it is just basic no frills Su27. So they wouldn't know what to do with them if they have no support from Russia.
And watch as they make chem weapons a pretext to strike their airbases primarily. That still makes no difference to USA, but of paramount importance to Israel and Saudi Arabia. All they got are the F15 Eagles, and they are absolutely no match in a one on one air superiority showdown with a Sukhoi Flanker class.
So that is what US and allies SAUDI and Israel want, to destroy any Su 27 they MAY have, from as far as possible. That's what they mean when they say 'degrading their capability'.

If Obama is so good why does he have to crawl up the arse of the poofter Jew .
Even Sue was reluctant at first , oh ! is that what happened to Obama , the neighbours frightened him with threats of ostracism.

If Obama goes in this could be his undoing.
Getting the Republican leadership on board will do him no good as the rank as file Republicans dont like their so called leadership at all and will not follow them anywhere. They will quickly join the Code Pink crowd in this War And the protest against this War will make those against the Iraq War look tame and small by comparisons.

Only comparatively speaking tho.

US supported Israeli and Saudi plot to infiltrate and subvert the genuine protests by secular pro democracy supporters. The Saudi pushed in Al Qaida and Al Nusra fanatic militants, with arms from israel and CIA.

Now the locals are demonstrating against them, as Assad is now the lesser of the 2 evils. Saudi King is freaking out about all this Arab Spring and true democracy as right now al the oil paymenrs gonto the 7000 Saudi princes only, on whose benevolence the rest of the population depends. And if the King goes, so does all old US oil contracts and 50 50 profit sharing, so US will support Saudi plan to send in militants, so long as the cost this way is not higher than those profits.

Probably not. Hanoi wasn't targeted in VN due to a Russian presence.
Most of these anti aircraft missile positions have Russian technicians. I don't know what they'll do about that. Bad idea all around.

We also used napalm and White phosphorus bombs in Nam. Just saying.

"Agent Orange or Herbicide Orange (HO) is one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its chemical warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. Vietnam estimates 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects as a result of its use. The Red Cross of Vietnam estimates that up to 1 million people are disabled or have health problems due to Agent Orange. The United States government has dismissed these figures as unreliable and unrealistically high."

Our butt kicked by who? Certainly not Russians.

If there was ever a war between Russia and America it would be in some $hit hole third world, some place like Syria. No nukes would be used by either side. The Russian aren't that stupid and neither are we.

America has the biggest, baddest Air Force and Navy. Our ground troops would pummel the Russians. Plus Israel and the UK would be fighting with us. Maybe even China. The Chinese own too much of America to not help us. Not we need their help or anyone else's.

Whether you like it or not America is the king of the world.

He was making reference to Tartus, Syria. A sea port used by the Russians in Syria. We didn't bomb the Hanoi sea ports in VN due to Russian ships there until toward the end. Same scenario for Tartus. A perfect place to move targets from Our Tomahawks.

Chances are Syria will be attacked by our country.

Assad will put innocent people in harms way. Our rockets will kill and hurt those people.

Who will rebuild what we distroyed? Us.

Assad will look great and we'll look like the big bad wolf.

Every country we tried to help over there turned on us
