Why should a single Australian pilot die for Israel?
Following the shooting down of a Syrian military jet by the US, Russia’s Vladimir Putin in effect declared Syria to be a no-fly zone for American and coalition planes.
The Australian government, showing a degree of independence from Washington, has decided to stand down in Syria.
Australia has no business in Syria anyway, undoubtedly having been bullied by the (((neocon))) controlled American military into becoming part of the “coalition” fighting Syria’s Assad government.
Australia said on Tuesday it was suspending air strikes into Syria following the U.S. downing of a Syrian military jet on Sunday and Russia’s subsequent threat against U.S.-led coalition aircraft.
“As a precautionary measure, Australian Defence Force (ADF) strike operations into Syria have temporarily ceased,” Australia’s Department of Defence said in a statement.
Russia said on Monday it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the River Euphrates in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.
Russia made clear it was changing its military posture in response to the U.S. downing of a Syrian military jet on Sunday, something Damascus said was the first such incident since the start of the country’s conflict in 2011.
