Slightly different version of events than what the US released.

Based on historical precedents, I'm at the point where I assume the Russians are lying about everything, until proven otherwise....

I remember Obama making his line in the sand, and then .......nothing....this time, with a new President, they are immediately pushing back. What happens now determines how he is received by the adversarial part of the world.

Maybe.  I think the world today is less like autumn of 79 years ago and more like autumn of 109 years ago.

US shoots down Iranian drone in Syria - By Lucas Tomlinson Published June 20, 2017 Fox News

A U.S. jet shot down an Iranian drone flying in southern Syria near U.S.-backed forces on Tuesday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.

A U.S Air Force F-15 shot down the Iranian-made drone, according to the official.

This is the second time the U.S. has shot down an Iranian drone in less than a month. It also marks the fifth time since late May the U.S. military has bombed pro-Syrian forces in southern Syria.

US special operations forces have been training Syrian rebels at an outpost near al-Tanf Syria, close to Syria’s border with Iraq and Jordan for the past few years.
