US shoot down Syrian air force plane over ISIS held Syrian territory - who's side are the US on...?

Post by Tommy Monk on Mon Jun 19, 2017 7:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

An American fighter jet shot down a Syrian warplane over the Isis-held province of Raqqa on Sunday as escalating tensions between rival forces threaten to draw the US into the wider conflict in Syria.

It was thought to be the first time the US-led coalition fighting Isis has shot down a Syrian jet since the war erupted six years ago, and it comes after several recent incidents in which the US has targeted regime forces and their allies in eastern Syria.

The US military said the downed Syrian plane was dropping bombs near a Syrian Kurdish militia that Washington was backing in the fight against Isis in Raqqa, the jihadi group’s de facto capital.

The downing of the Syrian jet came just hours before Iran launched ballistic missiles at suspected Isis targets in eastern Syria. The twin escalations by Washington and Tehran, which has already been active in supporting the Syrian regime, underscores the renewed risk of the civil war becoming a regional conflagration.

Moscow, which has intervened militarily to back the Syrian regime, condemned the US action, saying it flouted international law.

“What is this other than an act of aggression in violation of the norms of international law?” Sergei Ryabkov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister, told reporters.

Syria’s conflict began in 2011 as a rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad’s rule, but has since devolved into a multi-sided conflict that jihadi groups such as Isis exploited to seize territory. Russia and Iran back the regime, while the US, Turkey and Gulf Arab states have supported Syrian rebels.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards launched its surface-to-surface missiles against Isis in Syria’s east in an attack seen as retaliation for attacks this month by the jihadi group on the Islamic republic’s parliament and a shrine in Tehran.

Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, tweeted that “Iran’s missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defence and advances common global fight to eradicate Isis and extremist terror”.

Isn't it tea time?

Wow what a reply

So why are the Russians invoking the same Tommy?

Let me ask you a serious question Tommy.

Where we can do something against the oppression of people and where for example young girls are being raped.

Would you not want that to stop?

I mean countless girls have been enslaved by ISIS and are being raped.
Do you not want to help them?

I mean at present ISIS has lost half its control of land in Syria

Now Assad is murdering as many children as well with his armed forces deliberately.

Who's side are you really on?

Any plane of Assad's taken down is one less that set outs to deliberately murder civilians.

Surely you would applaud that would you not taking down one of his instruments to do this deliberate murder?
