U.S. Troops 0, Russian Troops 100+ Major Conflict.

Little if ANY news coverage of a major military conflict between our forces and Russia troops.  Putting aside the claim that these were renegade troops, an obvious lie, we have never had a direct engagement between our forces and Russia got spanked.  I believe they were moving on U.S. backed forces in a battalion with tanks that we completely anhilated.  We are going to accept their explanation because we have no desire to escallate this but what if the numbers were reversed?

Quote:
U.S. forces killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria last week in what may be the deadliest clash between citizens of the former foes since the Cold War, according to one U.S. official and three Russians familiar with the matter.

More than 200 contract soldiers, mostly Russians fighting on behalf of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, died in a failed attack on a base held by U.S. and mainly Kurdish forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region, two of the Russians said. The U.S. official put the death toll at about 100, with 200 to 300 injured.

Quite a bit of coverage of it actually.

What this should demonstrate is how dangerous our presence in Syria is right now. We're risking a major conflict with potentially Russia and Iran (not to mention maybe Turkey) for what exactly? Bashar al-Assad?

I am no fan of proxy wars and Syria has alwas been a satellite state of Russia, even during the Cold War.  I have no doubt this was orchestrated by the Russian military and the outcome for them was brutal.

Considering the severity and consequences Demos, this is not even a news story of interest on network news.  Quite honestly it should be major headline news and it is not.

So, we should just keep going and let more of this occur?

You seem more concerned about this than anything else.

Seriously.. Why do right-wing nitwits go on and on about a supposed lack of coverage of subject "X" when proof of their delusion is so easily obtained..

Time will tell.  Just like the breaking news about Christopher Steele's links to a Russian Oligarch friend of Putin (who has been involved in a nine year old lawsuit with PAUL MANAFORT an is linked to organized crime), the Left Wing Media will be late to this party too!

If it's not FAKE NEWS that reinforces their bias, then they really don't know what to do with it.

Even the Kremlin is being quiet.   Again, time will tell.  Some stories are too big to be ignored!

Seawolf, I saw it on CNN's front page when I first got up this morning.  It's getting pretty widespread coverage.

Several Russians killed in US airstrikes in Syria, friends say

Another CNN article on their front page.

What's the CNN take?  I heard something about someone saying it might be "a rouge element" of the Russian military.  That's rather hard to swallow.
