Of course, Louis is being rightly sarcastic here, because 99% of the time, the Russians are not bombing ISIS, just bombing FSA, anti-ISIS Islamists, hospitals, apartment blocks, marketplaces etc. So since the RAF is only bombing ISIS, there is even less reason for them to come into conflict, since they would be rarely even near each other.

Contact between US and Russian warplanes would be more likely, since both the US and Russia bomb ex-Nusra and other Islamists. But that is why they share intelligence, to avoid mistakes.

I'd like to hear from other comrades on the significance of this. Is this a
serious threat? Is it being exaggerated?

If they are bombing ISIS, why should they have a conflict with Russian
jets that are doing the same thing?
