The intrigue hanging over the shooting down of a Syrian jet by American forces is heavy.
Let’s see if we can formulate some theories to cut through the fog of fake news that is going to spew forth from the Deep State.
First, a concise statement of what the American command says happened.
A U.S. Navy fighter jet shot down a Syrian government warplane after it attacked Washington-backed fighters near ISIS’ de facto capital of Raqqa, the U.S.-led coalition said Sunday.
In a statement, the coalition headquarters in Iraq said that a F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near positions held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The statement said coalition aircraft had “conducted a show of force” to turn back an attack by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s forces on the SDF in the town of Ja’Din, south of Tabqah.
The coalition said the shootdown took place “in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of Coalition partnered forces.”
The statement said “a number of SDF fighters” were wounded in the regime’s attack, but did not specify further. The coalition also said that Russian officers had been contacted on a special “de-confliction” hotline in an effort to halt the assault.
“The Coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” its statement said. “The Coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend Coalition or partner forces from any threat.”
The statement went on to call for all parties in Syria’s complex and bloody six-year-long civil war to “focus their efforts on the defeat of ISIS, which is our common enemy and the greatest threat to regional and worldwide peace and security.”
A U.S. defense official told Fox News that the Super Hornet that shot down the Syrian jet was based on board the USS George H.W. Bush, which is currently operating in the Mediterranean Sea. The official did not say which weapon was used to shoot down the Syrian plane.
The story told by the American military-industrial complex is implausible.
Syria would be happy to let ISIS and Syrian rebels battle it out and kill each other.
The U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia created ISIS (aka Daesh). There’s only token evidence that these countries are serious about defeating ISIS.
De facto, the U.S. just committed an act of war against Syria. This country wants Assad gone and Syria carved up and defenseless. In short, this country wants what Israel wants.
The Syrians have responded: (via Google translate)
one of the fighter aircraft in the Rusafa area of the southern countryside tenderness during the implementation of a combat mission against the terrorist organization Daesh in the region led to the crash and the loss of the pilot.
This blatant aggression confirms beyond doubt the truth in support of terrorism, the American position, which aims to try to influence the Syrian Arab Army’s ability only force players with allies exercising their legitimate right to fight terrorism throughout the home area especially since this attack comes at a time that achieves the Syrian Arab army and its allies clear progress in the fight against the terrorist organization Daesh who defeated in the Syrian desert on more than one direction.
Also it confirms that exists between the United States and the organization of coordination Daesh terrorist, and exposes the malicious intentions of the United States of America in the management of terrorism and investing in it to achieve its objectives in passing the project US Zionist in the region.
The General Command of the Army and the armed forces as it warns of the serious repercussions of this blatant assault on the fight against terrorism, efforts to confirm that such attacks will not be deterred from its determination and its determination to continue the war against organizational Daesh and Front victory terrorists and groups associated with them and restore security and stability to all the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Basically the Syrians say that the U.S. shot down their plane to benefit Israel. I believe them. What do you think?
