Iggy Doesn't Just Want an Air War Over Syria. He Wants a Shooting War with the Russians.
Thank God and Greyhound he's gone. It's in the Washington Post. The Count, Iggy, former Liberal clown prince, wants NATO to declare part of Syria a "no fly" zone. Ignatieff seems to be spoiling for a showdown with Putin's and Assad's forces in Syria.
It seems the twerp doesn't realize that Syrian airspace is already controlled by Russian S-400 missile batteries. Put simply, we won't be imposing a no fly zone without risking a major conflagration with Russia and if that starts in Syria it won't end there.
Just for background, an analysis of NATO's forces in the Baltics has concluded the Russians could roll us up there in 3-days.
