Ryan Crocker, who was a career diplomat with long experience in the Middle East, and who served as the U.S. ambassador to Syria from 1998 to 2001, says “there’s every chance we’ll lose aircraft” if U.S. planes enter Syrian airspace.

During an August 23 National Public Radio (NPR) interview Crocker was asked about possible U.S. military action against Syria.

“I was in Lebanon when the Israelis invaded in June of 1982, and the entire Syrian air force was basically just destroyed in a matter of hours because of inadequate air defenses,” said Crocker.

“The Syrians learned from that and have spent decades with their Russian allies developing a highly advanced, well-integrated air defense system,” Crocker continued. “That’s what makes a no-fly zone so much more dangerous in Syria than in, say, Iraq or Libya. There’s every chance we would lose aircraft.”
