War crimes?, yes. But NATO and Dutch backed criminals will continue their criminal acts anyway. When are the people in these countries going to demand their gov quit indiscriminate carnage at Israels request? When will the Dutch demand the truth about MH17 from their lying gov? Ever? Always Russia’s fault, eh? Russia will accurately target the perps and that will be that.

These jihadis aren’t being very clever thinking that poking the Bear is a good idea.

Would those rockets been shot down if they were flying directly at the Russian airfield? One would guess: yes.
But they were not taken down for they only flew towards Syrian villages to kill Syrians … two km away … let us join the celebration of the Soviet Heros!

Mucha compasión con los terroristas, ya los Rusos dejen de jugar a la guerrita, la fuerza aérea debe arrasar el territorio sin contemplaciones para que la paz llegue rápido.

Then you make them flee and only displace the problem elsewhere?
Not really interesting. Better get the world rid of as much as possible as long as they are here in numbers
