Turkey threatens Syria with military retaliation over downed jet


www.guardian.co.uk

Turkey's prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has threatened Syria with retaliation for the shooting down of a military jet, and warned that Turkish armed forces would respond to any Syrian encroachment on their joint border.

Erdoğan described the downing of the reconnaissance plane as a deliberate and hostile act that would not go unanswered.

"Any military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria by posing a security risk and danger will be regarded as a threat and treated as a military target."



the Nato secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, made it clear that the alliance was not considering a collective armed response.


While NATO has confirmed that they are not going to amount a military response as a result of the downing of the jet, Turkey has made sure that they will regard any action (close to the border) coming form the Syrian side will be perceived as a military threat and target.

This should get interesting.

Well regardless of the events as of late. Turkey should have kind of considered something like this would happen. This also makes me think that Syria has something to hide...

"Oooh what's that down there?!" BOOM! No more plane...


Erdogan criticized Syria harshly on Tuesday for shooting down the Turkish fighter jet, saying: "Even if the plane was in their airspace for a few seconds, that is no excuse to attack."

Yes it should!
Turks are infamous with their brutality during war time throughout history.
Maybe a few come close to their reputation but, a pissed off Turk with a knife sounds rather ominous to me!

This just came to mind. *eek*

I'm getting nervous now.


Large numbers of Turkish troops — including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir. A video published by the Turkish Cihan News Agency showed Turkish tanks being transported by carrier trucks toward the frontier.

The mobilization followed statements by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the Turkish military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements.

“As awe-inspiring as Turkey’s friendship is, Turkey’s wrath is equally awe-inspiring,” Erdogan told the Turkish parliament on Tuesday.

“The rules of engagement of the Turkish Armed Forces have changed,” Erdogan said. “Any military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria posing a security risk and danger will be regarded as a threat and treated as a military target.”

Erdogan closed his remarks with an especially harsh condemnation of Syrian President Bashar Assad: “Turkey and the Turkish people will continue to provide all support until the people of Syria have been saved from this tyrannical, murderous, bloody dictator and his gang.”
