Thanks for your translation.

Can you tell (maybe from the accent) where the guy is from?

Turkish? Syrian? Kurdish?

Could this be another FALSE FLAG event staging Russia as being attacked for "hacking" into US?

Start WW3? No. US involved? No. Terror group involved? Yes. that is what terror groups do. Create fear and confusion.

The question is who is held responsible when Russia retaliates because it will happen.


Surely there must be a video Russia can blame this on.


That kind of propaganda only happens in banana republics.

It is believed he is a 22-year-old Turkish police officer from Ankara and in the special forces



Presumably one who had comrades nicked in the counter-coup. Curiouser and curiouser....

If he is, we can expect a second round of counter-coup purges. Erdogan has already lost the support of the Western leaders (who were probably behind the coup, as a continuation of the "Arab Spring" campaign). He cannot afford to lose Russia's support.

Interesting to point out that 13,000 police officers were suspended due to the coup.

CNN apparently has a partial translation of some what said: "Do not forget Syria" "Do not forget Aleppo"


To that he added: "Anyone who took place in this cruelty will pay the price."

That may be the point. It might also suggest a reason for a Russian false flag. I think that's less likely than the assassin being a Kurd, but... it would give Putin additional leverage over Erdogan.

Yeah, RT said he might have been a police officer.

If Russia attack Turkey - it's going to raise the question of NATO support for Turkey once again.


Why would Russia want to attack Turkey?


Are you kidding me? have you followed any news this year outside US media demonising of Russia???

Remember the US airbase shutdown earlier this year? There was an attack. There was the coup attempt. Turkey is also a strong proponent of the no fly zone in Syria. In 2003 they refused us access to go into Iraq. They have denied US flyover capability...but are a NATO member?

Turkey is playing both sides and the issue is that in 30 days you will not have an administration with a different mindset. Not about war but preventing it.

The ball is in the court of Russia and it will be very interesting to see how this is handled. A jet now a diplomat. How many 'acts of war' are considered before there is reaction?

Russia calling this an act of terror... reports that Turkish govt have told news media not to cover the story.

Peaceful muslims spreading their message of peace once more. Wonder if Putin will run to a safe space like Obama when our ambassador was given the message of muslim peace in Libya.

I also know turkey is the biggest buyer of F-16s from the US.

I only know this from my time in the USAF and that many of our TDYs were to Turkey to teach them / train them.

F-16s are important because they are capable of ground and dog fighting, just not as good as f-15s in air to air due to lacking the extra engine.

Very interesting, wonder if the Zurich shooting has any relation at all.

The gunman was a Turkish special forces guy, seems to have deep sympathy with ISIS. A Russian ambassador is not an Archduke Ferdinand at the turn of a different century but I bet they were going for the same effect.

There is reporting of this in the Turkish English language press:

www.hurriyetdailynews.com...

They say that the ambassador did not have a bodyguard with him at the art exhibit.
