Russia issued a threat to U.S. aircraft Monday morning after the U.S. shot down a Syrian regime fighter jet that attacked the Syrian Democratic Forces.
The SDF is an anti-Islamic State alliance that is allied with the U.S. An American F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 war plane “in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of coalition partnered forces,” according to the SDF. The coalition headquarters said that the Syrian Su-22 war plane had dropped bombs near SDF forces.
Russian officials have since threatened to shoot down U.S. coalition aircraft supporting Syrian rebels.
Glenn Beck explained the larger context of the dangerous situation on Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” Was it right or wrong for the U.S. to shoot down the Syrian plane? Either way, “the game has changed,” he said.
Turkey and Syria are battling to control a large section of the Middle East. The U.S. is arming Syrian Kurds even though they are communist revolutionaries because they are fighting the Syrian regime and ISIS, Glenn explained. He compared the situation to U.S. action in Benghazi. “We were arming ISIS,” he said.
“How do you even fight on the ‘right’ side of this?” Pat asked rhetorically. “You can’t.”
