    Some other Russian weapons are pretty fearsome too. Sandbox and Sizzler missiles. Sunburns, as you mentioned.

    And Russian advisers to help operate anti-aircraft SAMs.

    And we're sending that obnoxiously phrased "boots-on-the-ground" into Jordan already. Turkey as well.  We're already there. All that remains is for Americans to start dying through our own escalations of the war.

    Congress has to head this off.

      This is a clusterfuck waiting to happen.

      Although always seriously damaged, warships are so heavily compartmentalized that they usually survive a strike by a single anti-ship missile.
