The Russians were bombing the Turkmen/Arab forces(they fight together) there for Assad,there are only Turkmen and FSA(moderate Arab fighters) in that area.So, what would be the reasoning for the Russians in violating the air space of Turkey, if ISIS is not in that particular area? Are they doing this on behalf of Syria, for some reason? It's hard for an outsider to comprehend the politics of the region and the countries involved. I did see a comment elsewhere that Turkey consistently violates the airspace of Greece, so it seems curious that they would do that, yet hold Russia to a much higher standard, to the extent of actually shooting down a plane.
You dont know much about the people and the countries of the ME,do you?I had the impression that Syria is a war zone as evidenced by the exodus of Syrians to other countries. But with this latest news about the warplane of Russia that was shot by Turkish military, it makes me think that Turkey is another war zone. Amid the warning of Turkey on Russia entering their sacred air space, do they think Russia would do something bad to them? We all know that Russia has forces in Syria and those warplanes are just passing by. Now Turkey may have anxiety attack over what they had done.
You are correct on that - I don't know much about the Middle East particularly Syria and Turkey. All I know about Turkey is that it is a melting pot of different races but this I learned from a friend who works there. I don't have a good mind of history, a bit forgetful sometimes. But I believe that Russia will do something to retaliate, just my opinion. But I heard in the news this morning that US had confirmed that Turkey air force had warned the Russian plane more than 10 times, that's a justification of the shotdown.You dont know much about the people and the countries of the ME,do you?
Dont worry,there is no anxiety,we know what we did and why we did it.
This is not Ukraine or Georgia,if Russia wants some,it gets some.
