The United States is discussing military options for responding to the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria

During a recent briefing at the US defense department, a Pentagon spokesman spoke about the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, which allegedly could cause some harm to the US mission in that country.

The United States is reportedly considering forceful options to respond to "unsafe flights" by Russian aircraft in Syria. The Pentagon believes that Russia's attempts to narrow the US operational space are the result of coordination with Iranian middle-level commanders. At the same time, a few days ago, a representative of the department noted the absence of serious problems in interaction with Russian forces.

Thus, the Pentagon's statement is a shift in the approaches of Washington, which had not previously foreseen such problems with the maneuvers of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Syrian sky.

Along with this, American MQ-9 Reaper drones became the object of “unsafe and unprofessional” in July. Action Russian pilots, because of which the UAV almost lost control. According to the US Central Committee, the aircraft carried out the mission of tracking a certain high-ranking representative of the "Islamic State" (a terrorist organization banned in Russia).

Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defense expresses similar claims against the American side, whose representatives purposefully and systematically violate bilateral agreements on deconfliction in Syria.

    The US mission in Syria is called terrorism.
    Why does our Duma not recognize Ukraine as a terrorist state?
    Yes, because America and NATO in this case automatically become sponsors of terrorism and, accordingly, demand quite definite military actions from Russia. Including in Syria.
    Terrorists from ISIS and terrorists from the United States are on the same level in terms of destruction.
    But our government does not want to confront America and is afraid.
    It's easier to head into the sand and be what will be.

      Yeah? Machine gun around the neck and forward to Washington! Let's deal with Ukraine first. Here in Syria, let all their violations be recorded and presented, well, yes, by committing "unprofessional" actions. Specifically, they are there illegally.

    It is strange that our politicians do not daily inflate the topic of the illegality of the US presence in Syria
