Why is the Pentagon Painting War Planes to Match Russians?

The U.S appears to be painting some of its war planes to match the color schemes of Russian jets in Syria. What is up here?

Standard training or preparing for monkey business? Hard to know but these days just about anything seems possible as the imperial war machine is in collapse mode.......

I've been around long enough not to be surprised by anything.  While in the Air Force during the Vietnam war I read the 'secret' Pentagon Papers cover-to-cover (released to the public by whistleblower Dan Ellsberg and printed in book form).  Inside that history of the US war in Vietnam I learned that the Pentagon lies to Congress, the media and the public all the time to justify war.

So I'd not be surprised at all to suddenly hear that 'Russian' jets are doing some evil deed in Syria - who would know the difference?

There is a propaganda war underway in the west to sell and justify 'regime change' in Syria, Iran, Russia and China.  Hang onto your hats and don't easily fall for the media hype.

Have we already forgotten George W. Bush's 2003 'shock and awe' on Iraq - looking for WMD?  

Citizen beware!
