BREAKING: Russia Says US Coalition Planes Will Be Targets, AP Reports

This is a developing story. AP reporter Josh Lederman, who covers national security and State Department, tweeted this little bombshell.

Since a U.S. Navy F/A-18 downed a Syrian SU-22 Russian-made bomber over the weekend, “coordination” between American assets and Russians in the theater appears to have broken down.

And this…just in case you forgot that Qatar is in the middle of a Mideast kerfuffle with other Gulf states.

We may very soon see a nose-to-nose confrontation between the two militaries. That’s bad news for anyone who thinks Russia is still our friend.

Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail here. This would be a really good time for Russian President Vladimir Putin to take President Trump up on his “call my cellphone” offer.
