Republicans and Hillary are Stupid and Wrong about a No Fly Zone

The latest rage is to call for a no fly zone in Syria (link).  This might have made sense (might) before Russia joined the fight, but only a little.  And none now.
.

.
We are, technically, fighting only against ISIS.  And ISIS has no Air Force.  So the "No Fly Zone" would be useless.  So, let's start with that is a dumb-ass suggestion.
.
Now, Syria when was bombing other rebels, so we could have imposed it over their areas.  After a vote to go to war with Syria, which isn't a terrorist country and so doesn't fall under the current mandate.  A vote that President Obama has asked for and no Republican in Congress has acted on.  So it would be illegal.  And here we have the GREAT irony of the Republicans, who argue that President Obama is a dictator, that he should ignore Congress and go to war with Syria.
.
So it made no real sense even back then.
.
But now!  Kids, Russia is flying against rebels and ISIS.  How do you plan to enforce a no-fly zone?  Are you going to attack Russian planes?  That is asinine.  Governor Christie (as one of the clowns running for President) said he would shoot down Russian plane.  Which is stupid  AND a lie.
.
I mean, why would you start a war with Russia?  Over what?  What is Christie's, or Hillary's or Jeb!'s or Fiornia's goal.  I don't even mean and exit plan, what is there goal to start a war with Russia.  Get rid of ISIS in Syria?  Yeah, I don't thinking starting a war with Russia - already proved they are happy to invade people, is the best method to deal with ISIS?
.
Idiots.
