Nato/Turkey say that shooting down the plane is unacceptable, but what if Syria had a plane flying in American airspace? I imagine that it would be a declaration of war by the United States and it's NATO partners.
In my opinion this is a veilled thread of systematic augmentation in the plan to attack Syria. Some might even think that Turkey sent this plane into Syrian airspace knowing that it would get shot down giving them a reason to rattle some sabers and demonize the already not so popular Syrian regime via the media.
Assad needs to be careful because his house of cards is about to come tumbling down.

Well when you say state of war, then that would be different, the RAF have escorted nosey Russian planes away from the UK many time, however in a time of war it would be different I agree, however, I'd image Assad's forces know the Rebels have no air power, so they should have checked where the aircraft came from. Personally I think they made a big mistake, whether the incursion into their airspace was planned or not Assads forces have handed NATO the perfect excuse to try and interfere even more, although I personally don't think they will, but Israel on the other hand, they are bound to get stuck in, when it looks like Assads Regime is near collapse.edit on 29-6-2012 by Shminkee Pinkee because: (no reason given)
