“War Is Likely” After Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet, Ignores Putin’s Warning

It seems like full-blown war is only two seconds away with the wicked brew boiling in the Middle East. The latest?

Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Turkish-Syrian border yesterday, claiming it did so after the plane violated Turkish airspace and was given ten warnings to leave which were ignored. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said they decided to shoot it down because the plane “did not answer our warning”.

Both pilots bailed out. Russian media later reported that one of the pilots was killed by fire ISIS shot at them from the ground. Turkmen forces in Syria said both pilots were shot dead as they parachuted from the plane.

The US Ambassador to Turkey then Tweeted “Understand this: Turkey is a country whose warnings should be taken seriously and listened to. Don’t test Turkey’s patience. Try to win its friendship.”

However, the other pilot did survive, and he said that no warnings were received from Turkey before the plane was hit.

In response, Putin shot back with some pretty harsh language, saying this was a “stab in the back” by the “terrorists’ accomplices”:

The shooting of the plane, Putin said, “represents a stab in the back by the terrorists’ accomplices. I can’t describe what has happened today in any other way. Our plane was downed over Syrian territory by an air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16 jet.

“The plane fell on Syrian territory 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away from the Turkish border. It was flying 1 kilometer away from the Turkish border when it was attacked. In any case, neither our pilots nor our jet posed any threat to Turkey. That is obvious. They were carrying out an operation fighting against ISIL in Northern Latakia.” (ISIL is another acronym for ISIS.) (source)

Putin also said this would have “serious consequences for Russia’s relationship with Turkey”.

And, to sum it up, you know what Turkey said back?

“Warning ignored.”

NATO then called an emergency meeting, as Obama, Hollande, and others publicly called for de-escalation.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called Turkey shooting down the plane “a planned provocation” and an “obvious ambush”.

Analysts are already saying this could potentially lead to not only war, but nuclear war because Russia is being told they cannot fly near the Syrian-Turkish border where all the terrorists are hanging out.

Via the Daily Mail:

One of Moscow’s most respected military analysts said war was ‘most likely’. Pavel Felgenhauer said Turkey was seeking to protect an area in northern Syria controlled by its allies, the Turkmen. The analyst said Mr. Putin must either accept this zone ‘or start a war with Turkey’ which it could win only by going nuclear.

    NATO tried to trap Putin into a war-based reaction, and thus far it hasn’t worked! What Putin WILL do is basically seal off Syrian airspace with the S-300 and S-400 anti aircraft defense systems which are truly formidable, especially the S-400 system, which can knock out targets at near outer space heights. (37 miles, or 195,000 ft.).

    Russia will cut off military and economic ties with Turkey, and hopefully they will shut off their gas lines into Turkey.

    But I do NOT think that Putin will attempt to take NATO’s bait and go half cocked into WW3. Putin is no crazed lunatic neocon or neoprogressive war hawk, despite what the PTB and the mainstream media is trying to say.
    I may be wrong here, and time WILL tell.

    I cant see a war starting at all over one jet being shot down by the Turks this is just not going to happen.Turkey had better watch its back though as Russia will retaliate economically I suspect tourism and exports. All the cheap oil from ISIS in Syria that is shipped to Turkey that is going to stop.Watch this space as things just got interesting.

      The dumb Turks have given Putin what he needed…an excuse to deploy S400 systems and close of the airspace. Especially in the north of Syria.

      • BaronGreenBack

        What I really don not understand is why the Turks shot down the Russian Jet ? Turkish and Russian relations very good trade and tourism etc I have a feeling lots of Turkish in tourism will be looking for new jobs soon.The Gas pipe line deal as well they have really screwed them selfs.

    Sooner or later, Russia was going to get shot down.
    They were violating air space and flexing muscle around others for years.
    Now it happened.
    Hope this is a warning to Russia.
