I said that Turkey can not hope to bring NATO into their issues.
Turkey can not do what it wants in the hope of drawing in the rest of NATO.
The Greeks and thee Turks will continue to their mistrust of each other. Same old, same old.
If it's in Turkish airspace I will as that would be my right, but if Russia downs a Turkish jet over Turkish territory they would be seeing a response they couldn't handle.
They aren't trying to draw NATO into their problems with RUssia...Russia is trying to get a response from NATO that just isn't going to happen.

I, for one, won't let that possibility/fear rule me or my steadfastness.
MOSCOW, February 1. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been told about the intention of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to meet with him, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"Putin was informed of this wish of the president (of Turkey Erdogan)," Peskov said giving no further details on the Russian president’s reaction to the Turkish leader’s proposal.
Erdogan told reporters on Saturday that he wanted to meet with Putin to discuss the alleged violation of Turkey’s airspace by a Russian warplane. "If such violations aimed at Turkey’s sovereignty continue, then (Russia) will have to bear responsibility for the consequences. As the violated airspace is also NATO airspace, the alliance is also following the situation," Erdogan said.
"There is no use from such irresponsible steps for Russia or Russia-NATO relations or peace in the region. It was openly said to the Russian ambassador summoned to our Foreign Ministry yesterday," he said. Erdogan added that he asked Turkey’s Foreign Ministry to request a meeting with Putin.
MOSCOW, February 1. Russian inspectors will perform an observation flight over the territory of Turkey within the framework of the Open Skies Treaty, a senior Russian Defense Ministry official said. "As part of implementation of the international Open Skies Treaty, a Russian group of inspectors plans to conduct a surveillance flight on board a Russian An-30B aircraft over the territory of Turkey," chief of the ministry’s National Nuclear Risk Reduction Center Sergey Ryzhkov said.
So you believe the Turks whose leader has called himself the Messiah? The guy is a complete nut and has already been shown to be steeling Syrian oil through ISIS.
1 Billion Syrian dollars a day is what they steal from Syrian oil fields, well before Russia started bombing them that is.
NATO will not confront Russia over Turkey, sorry it will just not happen. Greece and many other nations will jump on Russia's side real fast.
This is nothing but Turkey trying to start crap because their ISIS and Turkmen Terrorist are taking a beating.
Russia will embarrass Turkey in a head on fight without Nukes.
NATO simply wont come to Turkeys aid when Putin will make sure he is responding to an attack, something NATO does not respond to.
They are only a defensive force alliance.
It's more obvious that Erdogan will take cover under the NATO umbrella if he the Russian keep on 'violating' their airspace. 'Violation' - with a proper observation plane - that will take place anyway soon :

They couldn't afford a war with Turkey, as their tanking economy couldn't handle it.
