The New Jersey governor would have no problem shooting down Russian planes.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked Christie a hypothetical question about downing a Russian plane in a no-fly zone over Syria and risking a war with Russia, notes

“Not only would we be prepared to do it, I would do it, “Christie replied. “A no-fly zone means a no-fly zone, Wolf, that’s what it means.”

The audience applauded his answer, despite the fact that the scenario could lead to war with Russia.

“Maybe because I’m from New Jersey, I have this plain language hang-up,” Christie added. “I would talk to Vladimir Putin a lot, and I would say, Listen, Mr. President, there’s a no-fly zone in Syria. You fly in, it applies to you. And yes, we would shoot down the planes of Russian pilots if in fact they were stupid enough to think that this president was the same feckless weakling that the president we have in the Oval Office is right now.”
