— Gilbert Doctorow — US Risks Wider War by Downing Syrian Plane

Now it appears that the Pentagon may be sabotaging another possibility of accommodation between Putin and Trump by escalating the U.S. military intervention in Syria at a time when the Syrian government has been consolidating its control over large swaths of Syria. The latest clash also heightens the possibility that Russian air defenses may shoot down a U.S. warplane and push tensions to even a higher level.
Trigger-happy generals.

Like when Barack Obama nearly an agreement ceasefire going and an agreement to fight ISIS so the the US air force 'accidently' bombed a Syrian position ending the agreement. Our propaganda media never questioned it.
