Shouldn't the Syrian government decide who flys in their own sovereign territory? With the allies we have currently killing civilians in Yemen we have no moral leg to stand on and the usa has propped up worse dictators than assad.
Russia is invited to help a legitimate government fight a mostly foreign sponsored conflict.
Why would the western powers mainly America impose a no fly zone if not to start a major war with Russia?

Did anyone go look up what this dangerous policy of Clinton's would be? I did. There's two parts:
* NO American ground troops.
* Enforce a no-fly zone.
That's it. Period.
Perhaps Dr. Stein can explain more clearly how not allowing American ground troops into Syria and enforcing a no-fly zone with our allies starts a nuclear war.

You have some reading to do then.. start here.. of course this is all opinion and theory..
McCain thinks it can be done without war. However, Gen. Dundord's stance is that implementing the no fly zone today would lead to war with Russia and Syria.
Either way, Johnson/Stein are the only choices here if you want the U.S. to stop meddling in regime change.

That boat already sailed when Russia set up their own no-fly zone.
The difference being they have integrated air defence already on the ground. "Creating" a no-fly zone means preemptively attacking those sites, ideally with Apaches or imo, a novel A-10 mission. RU countermeasures against this or SF insure there will be a hot face-to-face conflict with US forces.

Sadly Stein is not. I'm still voting for her though.
