You're only a day away from Friday and you're about to get up to speed on international events.
I'm Carl Azuz.
First up, Russia has launched its first strikes in the Middle Eastern nation of Syria.
It's a country where the U.S. has been leading air strikes for months, and Russia says it has the same target, the ISIS terrorist group.
And U.S. officials said yesterday that Russia's air strikes appear to be in places where ISIS isn't operating and American leaders are concerned that Russia won't just be targeting ISIS but fighting any enemies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
There are several different sides to Syria's ongoing civil war.
One is the Syrian government which Russia supports but the U.S. opposes.
There are Syrian rebels who were fighting their government.
And there are terrorists who want the land for themselves.
As Russia joins the conflict through air strikes, it's telling American aircraft to avoid Syria's airspace while it does.
This simply is not an area where ISIS is located, no matter what the Russians say.
This is an area where anti-Assad, anti-regime militias have been fighting the Assad government.
This by all indications is a military strike to prop up the Assad regime.
Right now, what the Russians have done is it create an exquisite military problem for U.S. pilots.
What has to happen now, officials say, there are going to have to be so- called rules of engagement.
If U.S. pilots flying in Syrian airspace and they will continue to fly, if they encounter Russian aircraft, what re the rules of the road?
If they feel threaten, even inadvertently,let's say the Russians are making the mistake, they don't understand it's a U.S. aircraft, what are the rules of the road for U.S. military pilot encountering Russian aircraft?
Do they have a right of self defense?
Can they counterattack against the Russians if they feel a threat?
These are the questions that the Pentagon wanted to sit down and talk to the Russians about.
It was just earlier this week, of course, that President Obama and Russian President Putin said there would be talks between the two militaries to work all of this out.
But now, the Russians have taken the first step.
They've gone ahead and done it, and here at the Pentagon, a lot of unhappiness to put it mildly about what the Russians are doing and what may come next.

Over the past few years, we've reported on global temperatures, how scientists say they've been some of the warmest on record.
That's one reason why this is such a mystery to researchers.
