Saddle up for Syria? Or Op Deny Christmas '13

Recommended Posts

Guest ThatGuy

One Syrian tweeted that "IS downed a warplane." Hope it isn't true.

Godspeed, y'all.

He thought the plane was shot down because it was heading in his direction. So he started tweeting and that's when a JDAM hit him dead in the face from that same aircraft.

I hope they are monitoring these guys FB and Twitter accounts. Please reveal yourselves and don't forget to post selfies..lots of them.

So...are we friends with Assad now?

Either way, he really, really appreciates the help. Crossing the 'red line' now equates to us doing your dirty work. Didn't the President say mulitple times that Assad's days were numbered?

Giving weapons and training to rebels has never bitten us in the ass before. There's no possible way it can go wrong.

Still waiting for BDA by social media. Only two videos has been posted so far; impacts at night and bits of TLAM.

Can we update the title of the thread to "Saddle up for Syria? Or Operation Deny Christmas '14"? F-22s popped their cherry, finally.

So empty buildings and training camps with jungle gyms were torn apart by million dollar weaponry. A class of 3rd graders are pissed off in Syria and Iraq now. What did the jungle gym ever do to hurt America? It will be a recruiting tool.

From report: "The plane penetrated roughly a kilometer (more than half a mile) into Israeli airspace." I guess "missile launch" was their work north call. Landed back in Syria after ejection. Blame the WSO.

I can think of at least two USAF crews that flew way more than 0.5 NM into countries that we are openly hostile towards. Good thing they didn't have Israels IADS. That doesn't count the incursions we've had into Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, etc.

Glad they got in the fight. USAF prediction:

-DFC's in lieu of air medals

-McKay Trophy frontrunner for penetrating highly contested ISIS airspace narrowly defeating AK-47 gunfire.

-Confirmed status as #1 A/G platform in aviation history finally displacing the B-1 of the coveted role.

-Added to the list of USAF CAS (defined as any A/G mission/recon) proven aircraft but outdated and in urgent need of replacement by the F-35.
