Russia's growing military involvement in the Syria conflict is expected to be high on the agenda as Nato defence ministers meet in Brussels.

It comes after Nato member Turkey complained that Russian jets had repeatedly violated its airspace.

Ministers are also expected to review a range of measures introduced in the wake of the Ukraine crisis.

BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Marcus says the alliance aims to make clear it will respond to any challenge.

Nato ministers are expected to express their solidarity with Turkey and also address increased concern among Baltic members following Russia's involvement in eastern Ukraine.

UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon is expected to announce that Britain is ready to make a long-term troop deployment to the Baltic republics, our correspondent says.

But, he adds, ministers are meeting amid a deepening sense of crisis.

Ok folks, not looking good at all, Nato ministers are set to meet to talk on the Russian military campaign, included in the agenda involves the Turkish airspace maneuver by Russian jets recently.

We just might be seeing a possible confrontation scenario brewing.

Let's hope for a better solution other than talks of a possible confrontation of the Western allies against Russia-China and allies.

ETA: This was from the Turkish President


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the Kremlin that any "attack on Turkey means an attack on Nato".

"If Russia loses a friend like Turkey, with whom it has a lot of co-operation, it is going to lose a lot of things. It needs to know this," Mr Erdogan said.

More hot air and antagonistic behavior from impotent fools.

Turkey is just pissed because it's plan to rid Syria of Assad is going awry with the arrival of the Ruskies. Maybe you shouldn't have bought all that oil off ISIS Mr Erdogan.

Just saying

I agree with the above post,turkey has been after the fall of Assad for some time now and the fact Russian actions in Syria have turned the table and are eliminating all terrorist groups is a problem for turkey who wished for regime change there

Untill Isis turned up Assads forces broke the back of the rebels the west and certain Middle East countries trained and supplied

Then for some reason Isis steamrolled through Syria,even with us bombing them!

NATO should be discussing actions against Saudi and other neighbour countries who since 9/11 days have instigated regime change in other countries

I'm also certain I heard threats from Saudi Arabia to the Russians that their continued support for Iran would result in Muslim terror attacks in their own country

If that were true then Syria would have ended this long ago.

Because Syria's army isn't what you think they are.

Why unless they effect a NATO country it isn't their problem...unless made so by the UN.



I'm also certain I heard threats from Saudi Arabia to the Russians that their continued support for Iran would result in Muslim terror attacks in their own country


And you can provide evidence of this...because I don't believe they did.

This is what that charming Saudi Arabian prince bandar said

"As-Safir said Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said."

www.telegraph.co.uk...

And Saudi actions in the Middle East have directly hurt NATO citizens with terrorist attacks in our countries


The Syrian army was easily beating the FSA we trained and supplied then we changed tactics and Isis suddenly advanced all over Syria evading our smart bombs

Perhaps we should use dumb bombs like the Russians do as some trolls on this site keep parroting

SA are evil greedy bastards and need quick regime change

NATO is really good at bombing females and babies from the air but I betya that they will turn and run from a nation that can melt their eyeballs with 5000 nuclear missiles locked and loaded for dispatch.

Ok, so now they are trying to feed us the suggestion that Russia wants to attack turkey?

Ridiculous, but I bet it won't be long, after being repeated over and over by the media, that a lot of people will be parroting Ut themselves.

Don't Russia, Greece and turkey have a major gas pipeline deal in the works?

As for NATO, again in the mass media, pretending to get all worked up? Theres absolutely nothing they can do about Russia being in Syria. There's also nothing they can do about the alleged Russian action in Ukraine, ,otherwise they would have already done it.

Correction: Western allies against Russia. China does not have a dog in this fight. And Russia doesn't have any allies, just clients.

No, just close the Bosporus to Russian shipping, bomb Russian air bases in Syria and threaten to sink the Black Sea fleet at anchor. (There should be an emoticon for "grim.")

Erdogan is doing his monkey business again?
We may need some help to visualize this great moment:



Yeah, sure. They will attack Turkey shortly and you're off your meds, Erdogan.
Crazy hypocrisy full of hyperbole, awesome stuff.

Pepe Escobars latest is a entertaining read and brings up some good points ....

NATO, predictably, went out all rhetorical guns blazing. Russia is causing “extreme danger” and should immediately stop bombing those cute “moderate rebels” the coalition of the dodgy opportunists refuses to bomb.

But wait; NATO is actually too busy to go to war. The priority, until at least November, is the epic Trident Juncture 2015; 36,000 troops from 30 states, more than 60 warships, around 200 aircraft, all are seriously practicing how to defend from the proverbial “The Russians are Coming!”

Still, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu – he of the former “zero problems with our neighbors” doctrine - actually “warned” Moscow that next time Ankara would respond “militarily”.

Until, of course, he backed down; “What we have received from Russia …is that this was a mistake and that they respect Turkey's borders and this will not happen again.”

The incident could have been easily defused – via military to military communication - without the posturing.

I think it's a none incident ,incident that has caused NATO to go into bash Russia/Putin mode . Seems they think the western MSM is not doing a good enough job on the propaganda file and so a little help is needed .
