“Turkey shot down a Russian fighter for violating its airspace. While that’s different in scale”

Yes, it is very, very, very different in scale from invading a sovereign nation with 70,000 troops and obliterating that nation’s air force and anti-aircraft system and forbidding them to try and fly in that region. Not sure why you’d bring it up, given that we’re aware how massively different in scale these things are.

“after they agreed to the terms!”

Why in God’s fucking name would Syria or Russia agree to allow America to come into a sovereign nation and eliminate their air capability???

I write about the end of illusions.
