Are Russian Airstrikes in Syria a Challenge to the United States?

Hosted by  • 

Russia reportedly gave the US less than an hour's notice of airstrikes today near the city of Homs in Western Syria.  They appear designed to shore up the government of Bashar al-Assad.  Secretary of State John Kerry told the UN Security Council that US will continue its bombing to the Islamic State. Will Russian airstrikes pose a challenge to the US?
