NATO are pushing there look with Russia, I think Russia will react to NATO one day soon, that will be a lesson to NATO they wont like.
The Turk leaders are really keen to choose a fight with Russia, and I really feel that we are close to war today more than ever before since cold war ended.

I have been an Emergency planner for yearsnow and anger between Chinc, USA, and Britain and Russia have never been so high, where will it stop?

They forced it to land safely and inspected the contents. They had specific intelligence that weapons were on board enroute to Syria. Normally 180 passengers but there were only 35 on board.

No doubt more news to follow.

If the Turks had specific intelligence sanctions against Syria were being circumvented on an aircraft traversing their airspace, they not only have the right, but an obligation to investigate.

There won't be a war with Russia over this, or anything to do with Syria for that matter. Neither the Russians (or the Chinese for that matter) have the capability (or even the desire) to take on the West

Are you planning to ever add something of note to these discussions, or are you just going to repeat the same bombastic attacks on anyone critical of Assad? What's your personal interest here?

All nations are within their rights to ground any plane in their airspace for any reason. Turkey is well within their rights to divert this plane to the ground and inspect it, just as any nation is within their rights to stop and inspect any ship in their waters.

You think Turkey should just ignore intelligence and allow a potentially criminal transport of weapons over their nation? I don't think so. I can guarantee that if this were Russia or Syria diverting a flight for the same reasons you would be defending it. But because it's Turkey, they're "puppets"?


It'll be interesting to see if they come up with anything on that plane, and what Russia says about it if they do. I guess we'll find out in the coming hours.

Just to add, it wasn't a Russian plane either.

It belonged to the Syrians. The headline is misleading..

Already posted -

secondly your title doesnt use the article title and is misleading because of that. Turkey forced down a Syrian civil aircraft coming from russia. It did NOT force down a Russian aircraft.

Only because they are puppets , do they have the right to scare people and make delay in their flight ?

That plane was civilian airplane carrying people from Russia to Syria.

That doesn't mean they were carrying artillery to Syria.

And I am sure that this could had different outcome only if this plane was leaving your country.

Wait

Turkey is no puppet of the USA, Washington is terrified that this is going to spiral out of control, they would be happier if Turkey would stand down, but Ankara is refusing, this could get very messy, very quickly, Syrian aircraft or not, Moscow will not be pleased at this.

Turkey let the NATO put the missile threat in his country and he is helping the rebels to make Syria unstable to help it's ally in middle east breath easily from it's north.

How is Russia going to make us sorry? War? Really? You honestly think the United States military is afraid of war? No one wants to go to it, but we obviously dont fear it.

There is nothing Russia can do to us that we cant give back 10 fold.

War between the super powers is inevtiable. It's just how long can we delay the launch of nuclear missiles? War will happen. Common sense tells us this.

The only way Russia will defeat NATO, is with Nuclear warheads. They have no other means to beat NATO.

More reports coming out now - eg Yahoo News:


"There are civil aviation rules, planes are required to make clear statements (concerning their cargo)," Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview with Turkey's TGRT television from Athens. The interview was also shown on TRT. "We received information that it was carrying certain equipment in breach of civil aviation rules."

"Should the information (received by authorities) turns out to be true, then whatever is required by international law will be done," he added.

The head of Turkey's civil aviation agency Bilal Eksi said there were 37 passengers and crew on board the plane. According to Moscow's Vnukovo airport, flight RB442 left for Damascus at 3:26 p.m. Moscow time (1126 GMT). It wasn't immediately clear whether this was the plane that was intercepted.

Davutoglu said the passengers were being treated "hospitably" and given meals while the plane's cargo was being inspected.

Turkey doesn't have nuclear weapons.

At one point, there were US missiles based there, which is what led to the Cuban missile crisis and as a result, I think the US agreed to draw down it's missile forces there. They also host, along with Greece, Germany, Belgium and others, tactical nuclear systems but these are under the control of the US forces until they are needed, then the host will deploy them on it's own aircraft

How about Russia cuts off Europe's gas supply, that would sway a lot of NATO members.

Such a thing could be construed as an Act of War and would be very dangerous. It would also send a signal that Russian gas supplies are questionable and make the EU nations seek it elsewhere in the future, only harming Russia in the long run and cutting off a vital source of funding to the country. Russia does not have the clout any more to back up such a brazen act.

Russian gas comes via pipelines, its cheaper than elsewhere and if you remember right they did it to Georgia in 2010, causing alot of hardship.
