According to Turkey's ambassador to the UN, Syria knew the identity of the Turkish jet BEFORE they shot it down. Syria also shot at Turkey's rescue plane.

hmm very good find, just another spark on the proverbial pyre.

With the Iranian Sanctions going into place sunday, and massive millitary joint operations with the US and Israel, It's set to be an interesting diplomatic week. Dont look for any rash moves by either side.

Since there aren't any syrian F4s and they are trained after a fashion of course they knew.

Did anybody doubt they knew whose jet it was?

Fighter plane flying slow and low into airspace of a country that's gone berserk...what did the Turks expect?

To lose a plane and start a hot fight before the nation who fired got worse,reinforced with Iranians and Russians.

A warning or a escorted flight out of its airspace perhaps?
Is that asking too much? After all, they have invested heavily in Russian hardware.
I'm sure they have invested equally in Flight Communications to be able to communicate
with their own and foreign pilots in their air space and international air space.

You're right. I guess they've characterized their airspace to the Turkish. How long before NATO downgrades the hardware for them? Any bets?
