Syria Airstrikes! Dozens Killed or Wounded After Bombs Hit 'ISIS' Targets!

The US-led coalition is conducting airstrike assault on positions of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) organization on the territory of Syria. The strikes reportedly involve a mix of fighter, bomber and tomahawk land-attack missiles.

Apparently the Syrian Government was given advanced warning of the attack. If the US only bombs ISIS then this will be a good outcome in terms of stopping extremist forces operating in the country.

The big problem is that making attacks within a sovereign state, without permission, is illegal and in this case could be used as a prelude for some sort of false flag shootdown of US aircraft. The downing of a US aircraft would then be used as an excuse to destroy the Syrian airforce and air defence systems. After all, Syria is being targeted by the US, so expect these airstrikes to switch to something more sinister (apart from the materiel support and funding of the terrorist rebels in that country).
