Turks Hit Russian Fighter – Escalation?

Today a pair of Turkish F-16s shot down a Russian SU-24 over what they claimed was Turkish airspace. The plane crashed in Syria, the pilots thought shot as they parachuted to the ground. What will NATO do? How might Russia respond?

Mid East mentality will never figure out democrazy. Islamic values are the only solution.

I smell tactical and intentional diversion with US backing, either to thwart Russian success on weakening ISIS, or to escalate the war machine complex, or the excuse expected to keep interest rates at 0, formally up the debt-ceiling and kick-start QE4, or, the more probable reason … all of the above!

The USA created ISIS and continues to supply ISIS with arms as well as attacking the enemies of ISIS. Russia's are actually trying to oppose ISIS and so we want to stop them. It's terrible to realize that your own nation is the world's bad guy.

This attack makes it just too obvious that Turkey is supporting ISIS. It's suspected they even refine ISIS oil and sell it. With the asshole deepshit Jens Stoltenberg in NATO I'm worried who's side they'll support. The russian pilots were heroes.

Turkey/NATO are proxies for the USA and Russia will be correct in believing it was basically the USA that shot down the Russian plane, probably because the Russian air campaign was too effective in pushing back the "moderate", anti-Assad rebel groups that we have been supporting for so long. US citizens should not permit all this foreign interventionism without a declaration of war or clear cut approval by Congress because of an imminent threat to the homeland (& no such clear cut threat exists…. Iraq was no threat, Libya was no threat, Syria was no threat, etc). US foreign policy… Read more »

As an aside the Turks are mainly Sunni, Sunnis make up the bulk of those killed by the west and Russia on the battlefield. Always wondered what reason other than a few airbases why we support a Sunni majority country. With the Saudis oil prices are the reason, not sure the reason for propping up Turkey or their allowance in NATO?

Turkey can violate Syrian and Iraqi airspace but if Russia does it to them (if they even did) they can shoot them down. Also, if they were in Turkish airspace why did the pilots land in Syria? The truth will come to light and Erdogan and his supporters better hope that they actually did violate their airspace or their inevitable demise will come much sooner.

The latest B.S. platitude is to say the situation is "complicated". This is non-sense. It's very simple. We don't have the right to have cheep gas and military industry jobs at the expense of other people's lives. Pull out, end all aid to all sides.

Comment 24, push and shove, lines in the sand, hidden agendas go hat in hand, figured they could get one more big war so they have less to explain, wipe everyone out and keep a few for slaves and food I suppose or yeah sex too. Then don't forget the Jews how they are taking over through the USA. They want Solomon days, so their servants drink from gold cups. Just saying.

So will Putin fight back? If he does then it could start a war and if he doesn't then it just shows everyone that he's backing down. Ah man. An impossible situation.

The minority that want war have never set foot on the battlefield, just fat old men that for whatever reason feel tough when young men fight and die on their behalf. This is what happens when the majority of the American people do not have to fear ever setting foot in any of these Hells on Earth, if we had a draft no one  would allow our politicians get away with this crap.  The American people would go mad if they knew that they would miss out on the next generation of the IPhone because Obama wants to kill Assad.

When people borrow from a commercial bank they lend you counterfeit money. They explain it thru a bullshit story of negotiable instruments but the truth is that it is a con because they are putting nothing of value on the table. In the promissory contract there is no connection between the customers deposits and the money they lend you. These bankers then take the massive profits and buy anything and everything that sources out information. That includes college and television. Then they buy control of major corporations. Then they buy politicians, the courts, the Pentagon and the miltary. This is… Read more »

So, how is "project Iraq" today (after 12 years). Is USAF waiting something? Waiting what is going to happen in Syria? No Iraq cleaning, all interest are now in Syria. If ISIS looses in Syria, they go back to Iraq and US defend them. Bombing empty buildings and desert and other clowning. Russia is killing all terrorist, and it´s not good for your policy. 100% Fact, that strikes are gearing up, after Turkey incident and revealing oil connection, terrorist support .

On a more serious note, what will Russia do? I bet they will play an eye for an eye and they will add a tooth in there as well

On the bright side, if a Turkish equipped F-16 can down a Russian Fighter, we know that US aircraft should fare well during WWIII.

I hope Russia send a very strong message to Turkey by doing something really bad to these ISIS funding bastards! eventhough part of me still thinks this was a pre planned attempt by US and NATO to provoke Russia into a more serious war.

Hillary's ideas of what to do in the middle east is vaguely outlined in her recent CFR speech. Continue meddling around in the area. Personally I think it is just a matter of time before our next "Pearl Harbor." I am totally with Ron Paul with his non interventionist thinking. Why does the USA government feel the need to solve everyones problems except our own? Getting more loans, or printing more money to solve other countries problems, doesn't sound like a good long term strategy for the USA to me.

It began with Obama meeting Neytanyahu, immediately after the meeting, 4 Hezbollah Shiites bastions in Lebanon suffered suicide bombing follow by Paris attacks and now Turkey shooting down of Russian warplane. I strongly believe all the incidents is the work of the Zionist state of Israel. It wants to create a conflict in Lebanon between Sunni/ISIS and Shiites/Hezbollah in Lebanon in order to tie down Hezbollah and prevent Hezbollah from going over to Syria to help Assad fight against ISIS. I think probably the false flag Paris attack is also part of its plan but it failed to get NATO… Read more »

The Turks still deny the 1915 genocide of the Armenian people AND still shoot Armenians who try to go to Mt. Ararat, our famous mountain that is mentioned in the Old Testament (the Bible), you know, where Noah's Ark apparently ends up. Turks are worse then Nazi Germany, at least Germany learned from their mistakes and has made reparations. North America is compliment in this treatment of the Armenian people because Turkey allows then to have military bases in their country.

TY for speaking the truth Ron, someone needs to. We need a President like you. We deserved a President like Al Gore, and we certainly needed more time with JFK.
