SDF are 50% Kurds the rest are mixed militants often siding with ISIS or whichever group meets there goals on the ground
Hardly innocent.
American aircraft and artillary have zero right operating and esp engaging Syrian aircraft and troops.

And what right does Asad have to bomb his own civilians? Or are you going to argue that its all an imperialist American propaganda conspiracy. And what right has Russia got to be involved as well?

Here's a tip, NO ONE is innocent in this f**ked up mess of a country, except the civilians caught in the middle. And even then some of them have dubious allegiances.

We own the air. If we choose, we can destroy ANY air force.

Damn hate to be the commander sorting that engagement out.

Another message has been sent. There will be no hand-wringing on a decision to act on site.

The military commanders have the green light and Trump's support to act immediately if the ROEs are met.
