Stupid Chickenhawks

Did they really believe that we could go tromping around the globe, bombing and missileing whomever we felt like without other countries getting into the act for their own reasons?
Russia says it has launched rocket strikes on Islamic State targets in Syria from its warships in the Caspian Sea - about 1,500km (930 miles) away.

Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said four warships fired 26 sea-based cruise missiles on 11 targets, destroying them.

Meanwhile, Syrian ground troops have launched an offensive under Russian air cover, Syrian officials say.

But don't take my word for it. Surf around. The Chickenhawks are foaming at the mouth because the Russians are doing, well, what we've been doing for the past two decades.

The Russians are apparently flying SU24M's based inside Syria itself. Thing is, the SU24M is also the Syrian Air Force's main bomber. So I guess the question is, how can we tell the difference between Russian bombers and Syrian bombers? Definitely gonna be some head scratching on that one because even Obama (who has proven to be an absolute idiot when it comes to Syria) isn't stupid enough to start a war with Russia as his legacy to his successor.
