Why not wipe out the entire Syrian Air Force?

Reader comment on item: No to Bombing Syria

Submitted by Sandra, Apr 7, 2017 at 16:01

In my view, this attack was a good start. There have been suggestions for a no-fly zone, but there was nobody to enforce it. Meanwhile, who has planes? Besides Americans, we have Syrian regime and Russian planes. The first thing the Russians delivered were anti-aircraft guns, for what, exactly?

The only thing the Russians have done was bomb Syrians they call terrorists, just like the Syrian regime. Nobody is bombing Daesh.

So let's get the coordinates of all the Syrian airports and (with warning) bomb the crap out of them. Is there a better way to help its enemies fight the regime more effectively?
