sputniknews.com – Turkiet blev nervöst när Ryssland bombade IS-oljekaravaner
Det här är knappast ett vanligt sammanträffande att våra turkiska grannar började bete sig mycket nervöst efter att vi startade bombardemang av Islamiska statens oljekaravaner, anmärkte Sergej Lavrov på en presskonferens med sin syriske kollega Walid Muallem.
Låt oss enbart ta gripningen av två turkiska journalister vilka gjorde ett reportage vapensmuggling till IS. Detta faktum vittnar ju också om hur varsamt Turkiet är med att hålla tillbaka informationen om sina underjordiska transaktioner med islamister, sade Lavrov.
sott.net – Putin says US knew the flight plan of the Russian jet
President Vladimir Putin said that Russia had given prior information to the United States of the flight path of the Su-24 downed by the Turkish Air Force on the Syrian border. The US leads the anti-Daesh coalition, in which Turkey is member.
”The American side, which leads the coalition that Turkey belongs to, knew about the location and time of our planes’ flights, and we were hit exactly there and at that time,” Putin said at a joint press conference with French counterpart Francois Hollande in the Kremlin. ”Why did we give this information to the Americans if they did not pass it along to the rest of the coalition?”
Moreover, Putin dismissed as ”rubbish” Turkey’s claim that it didn’t know the nationality of the plane when the Turkish Air Force hit it. ”They (Russian military jets) have identification signs and these are well visible,” Putin said and added. ”If it was an American aircraft, would they have struck an American?…What we hear instead is they have nothing to apologize for.”
rt.com – Turkish F-16 attacked Russian Su-24 without warning, both were above Syria – commander
To attack the Russian bomber with a close-range air-to-air missile, the Turkish fighter jet had to enter Syrian airspace, where it remained for about 40 seconds. Having launched its missile from a distance of 5-7 kilometers, the F-16 immediately turned towards the Turkish border, simultaneously dropping its altitude sharply, thus disappearing from the range of Russian radars at the Khmeimim airbase.
Daniel McAdams – Why is Turkey Not in Hot Water?
By all estimates, Turkey should be in hot water today. First, after violating Greek airspace thousands of times per year, after routinely violating Syrian airspace and territory in support of jihadists seeking to overthrow the government, Turkish President Racep Erdogan decided to shoot down a Russian SU-24 that may or may not have veered into Turkish airspace for a maximum of 17 seconds. In order to carry out such an operation, it is clear that the Turkish F-16s would have had to be lying in wait to ambush the Russians.
Second, we read today that the Italian authorities have seized 800 shotguns headed to Belgium — which was on lockdown last week over a terror threat — shipped from Turkey!
En analys man hoppas stämmer, negativ för väst-imperiet och hoppfull för mänskligheten.
