The topic is Turkey scrambles jets to intercept Russian warplanes ...
And yet it instantly jumps to 'bad israel'
Has ANYONE got anything to say about the actual topic of this thread? Or is it going to just be a bunch of people trying to drag Israel into the discussion ... being snotty as they do it ... ????
so i guess it was different from the earlier incident but still not much of a big deal
3 November 2013 20:45 (Last updated 03 November 2013 20:47) The Russian aircraft was flying near Turkish airspace, said Turkish General Staff ANKARA Turkish F-16 jets followed a Russian military aircraft flying near Turkish airspace in the Black Sea. Turkish General Staff stated on Sunday that a Russian IL-20 aircraft coming over Georgia approached Turkey's coasts in the Black Sea international air space. Russian aircraft flew approximately 15 miles off Turkey's coasts, and two Turkish F-16 jets followed the aircraft.

WTH does Israel have to do with this?
Second, they have cracked and bypassed the IFF safeguards to be able to engage Israeli fighters, despite the system having been hard coded to prevent allies from locking onto each other. Turkey has sworn they won't share that with other regional powers who also use the F-16.
