BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The U.S. military flew their new F-35 stealth jet over Syria’s skies this past week, as they display their strength in front of the Russian Armed Forces who are only a few kilometers away from the American troops in the eastern Euphrates region.

In a tweet on Monday, the Special Ops Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) in Syria and Iraq released three photos showing the F-35 above Syria, likely in the Al-Hasakah or Deir Ezzor governorates.

A USAF F-35A Lightning II fighter jet flies near the $ATG in Syria, April 10, 2020. Coalition and partner forces continue to strike at extremist organizations in Syria despite COVID-19, reflecting the world-wide unity to see an enduring defeat delivered against Daesh,” the U.S. military account posted. 

The three photos would show up close and far away shots of the F-35A as it flew over the skies of eastern Syria.

While the U.S. conducted this flight, the Russian military was likely watching from afar, as they have headquartered their forces in eastern Syria at the Qamishli Airport in the northern region of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

Wonder: Came they to deliver aid to ISIS or just say hello to their friends?

The aid they delivered to ISIS sent ISIS straight to its hypothetical so-called “Allah”.
Al-Baghdadi ended being eaten by US K9…

Ahh.. flexing muscles huh..after that successful fly past that F35 Lightning will be sent to the Paint Booth for repainting I suppose. Every time that TIN CAN flies the heat generated depletes its stealth coating. Good old American Tax payer won’t mind it anyway. Is that almost Billion Dollar fighter aircraft put there to fight against fighting 500$ a month paid Islamic Jihadis working for an international organization which attracts flies on the fresh s**t called Daesh?

And if it feels one drop on rain, you’ll have wreckage not a plane.

It would be bad strategy for Russia to shoot down our ultra expensive obsolete manned fighter bomber, it might deter us from blowing the defense budget on obsolete weapons systems and focus on the future of cheap but effective drones, ditto for the Osprey and our impossible to hide even from space aircraft carriers.

Its 2020, mannned expensive fighters are out, cheap hypersonic and slow moving small drones are in, the F35 is a beacon of electronics, a fat target for the first day of the last war.

Flexing muscles with one of the worst birds they ever built by all accounts, studies, and proof ? either this is a bad joke, a PR Uberfail, or they think that the Russians are as stupid as them Yankees and will somehow light their S-400 in tracking mode with military frequencies for US SIGINT teams to try and pick it up… none of that will happen, and the Russians as usual will simply watch and shake their heads, then forget and continue their Syrian business, which happen to entail the gradual breaking of local US interests. I’m fine with all… Read more »
