    This is a substantial escalation of the Russia-USA 'face-off' in Syria but it's hardly getting a mention in the media.

    After the loss of a Russian aircraft, with 15 men aboard, last week Russia now says that it has decided to sell Syria the S-300 air defence system and to start jamming Military electronics in Syria and the Eastern Mediterranean.

    There's been very little mention of those 'electronic counter-measures' (ECM) -

    The Israeli, American and coalition Air Forces have all had their wings clipped.

    America has 2,00 troops in Syria and they rely on air-power for their defence.

    If the Russians go ahead with their ECM threat Trump will have to respond vigorously or else withdraw his Expeditionary Force.
    This is the first time I've seen an explicit reference to the US Expeditionary force in Syria.

    It's all the fault of Iran.


    "The regime"... someone should parse the use of this term as a veiled threat to illegally attack another state.

    Last time I looked, Iran was a democracy.
