Most people are unaware of the fact that most part of Syria's electricity comes from Turkey. Cutting their power will be one of the possible retaliations IMO
Turkey's Energy Minister, Taner Yildiz, meanwhile, signaled that his government is to cut electricity supplies to the conflict-torn country, where escalating violence has claimed thousands of lives and forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.
Turkish companies provide Syria with on average 2 billion kilowatt/hour of electricity per year — around 10 percent of Syria's annual power consumption. Yildiz said a decision on the issue could be announced Tuesday by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who is expected to address his party legislators in parliament and reveal what retaliatory measures Turkey will take against Damascus for downing down the plane.

Just further demonstration of the idiotic Syrian regime at it's utmost idiocy. It's like they want to be invaded.
Nevertheless, nothing major will come out of it.
On a lighter note, this thread reeks of fear mongering. Can you guys even keep up with the amount of time you say stuff like "S has hit the fan!" or "I smell war is coming" - yet nothing happens? Seriously don't you ever learn?edit on 25-6-2012 by IsraeliGuy because: (no reason given)
