As the US and UK ramp-up the hyperbolic rhetoric on “confronting Russia in Syria”, another technical discussion is gaining steam regarding how the US would fair if they followed through on their threatening language and actually attacked Russian or Syrian Army targets in Syria.
NOTE: Bear in mind here that the US are already responsible for sabotaging their own bilaterally negotiated ceasefire agreement when the US led a one hour-long air attack against a Syrian Arab Army base that killed over 80 Syrian soldiers and injured another 100 on Sept 17, 2016. The US claimed this was just an “unfortunate mistake.” In response to further threats of attacks by the US “coalition,” Russia stated that since it has assets in the field with the SAA throughout Syria, that any attack against the SAA would be deemed as a direct threat to Russian national interests – in effect, setting the stage for what some might characterize as a “WWIII” scenario.
