1. "PeterTheGreat" is correct, the news are confirmed by multiple sources.
    The group of Alparslan Çelik is now a bunch of very happy kids, drinking wine that does not make dizzy and sleeping with 77 eternal virgins.

    No idea why Erdogan is so frustrated. His buddies achieved the dream of their life - all thanks to the Russian Air Force.

    Sure, but you are off topic, dear... If you can read English, we were talking about "carpet bombing", not "legitimate targets".

  4. mo1976 : “Turkey has been in the hands of Zionists and Imperialists since the Ataturk … how come is it that ISIL- hardcore Islamists never attack Israel … Turkey would never bring down this Russian jet without US and Israel permission.”

    Zionists from Britain started to manipulate the Turks first in 1774 when they persuaded them to stop the war against Russia. It enabled Moscovia to concentrate all the troops against the other Russian state called Great Tartaria with Tobolsk as the capital. In the two year war 1173-75 Moskovia took the upper hand and Pugachev (Peter-III) was executed. It enabled Moscovia to seize Siberia and Alaska and gave birth to the USA that were also part of the Great Tartaria.

    Next time the Ottomans yielded the British pressure again was early 19 century. They started to provoke the Greeks and the Armenians. As a result the Armenians were pressed, Greece appeared , the Yanissary were massacred in 1826 and the role of the Turkic people increased … Then the Ottomans were always on the British or German side losing one war after another. Yet their imperial mentality never died.

    As for ISIL it never attacked the USA and Britain too … not only Israel. And everybody knows that Erdogan had the US guarantees before he dared to bring the bomber down. Yet it was a great mistake and he seems to start to understand it.

  5. This incident has nothing to do with Turkey. Turkey has been in the hands of Zionists and Imperialists since the Ataturk. Research his real background please. Israel wants to destroy Assad and now of course has the US and Nato doing it for Israel. Just like in Iraq. One question for everyone- how come is it that ISIL- hardcore Islamists never attack Israel even though they are almost on Israel's border? Just a thought for all of you that believe that ISIS can travel from Syria, thru Turkey, Greece, Serbia into France to attack but can not attack Israel....Turkey would never bring down this Russian jet without US and Israel permission. They want Russia to send more ground troops into Syria which will then galvanize even more recruits for ISIS and Russia will find itself in another Afghanistan and when that happens down goes Putin and shortly after Assad which was Israel goal from the beginning.

    Russia is no force to count with when compared to US and Nato.


    In fact things develop different from what you say. It’s been 2 days that one way or another Turkey is trying to ease the tense while Russia does not accept the offered explanations. Seems that Erdogan will be made the main target but not Turkey. Russia has already started to implement political and economic sanctions and many of them will be irrational from the western and Turkish point. But they will be in harmony with the Russian mentality because there comes a time when they stop to count their losses including money. So the Russian respond will be unexpectedly strong and long lasting. Military respond is also inevitable as soon as 10 000 of their tourists are back in a week or so. Russia is already harvesting the incident by establishing a no fly zone for the Turkish planes in the border zone and in Syria where Turks are being hunted for 2 days already. Besides Russia used the pretext to deploy (in 24 hours !) their S-400 missiles in the world’s most vital zone. So now the Israeli the US and any other planes will have to inform them about their plans in the vast area. So what I can see is imposing Russia’s will on the west and yesterday’s visit of Hollande demonstrated it once again. He was nodding all evening through when Putin spoke. So Russia has it hands untied and the Turkish apology is the last thing they'd like to hear now.

    This is about who will win control over Syria. US or Russia?! This act from Turkey is humiliate Russia. Russia is flexing more muscles than It has and Turkey has shown that Russia is nothing. If Russia dont act then Russia will look weak in the international scene. If it acts then Nato countrys together with US will unite to support Turkey. With this united stance they will take over Syria and push back Russia. Assad will fall and IS will fall with him.

    You are dreaming in colour. Putin will finally test Nato's resolute. I can't see any country from Nato confronting the Russians. On the contrary, this is the beginning of Nato's end. Turkey is no match for Russia, that is a fact. So you go on in your delusional world and continue with your wishful thinking. Personally, I am elated that something like this occurred. We will see who comes to Turkey's rescue because already France and Germany are backtracking. Within time, Kosovo will be under Serbian control. Just watch!!

  11. So Turkey says they would shoot any plane down which enters it's airspace. Don't think so. It's only Russian planes they are after.
    Russia said they will have their bombers escorted by jet fighters from now on so let's see if Turkey is going to brave enough again. It looks like someone wants WW3.

  12. Russia has already responded to the Turkish cheap shot at an unarmed bomber which was on its way back to base.

    1.) Turkish convoy of 20 trucks crossing the Syria / Turkey border were destroyed by Russian jets within 48hrs of downing Russian Jet. (10-40 Turkish Fatalities)

    2.) Russia carpet bombed the entire area where the pilots landed and were fired upon, killing every Turkmen / Terrorist in the area. (Up to 500)

    3.) The Russian missile cruiser Moskva with Navy version of S300, anti air and anti ship missiles has been authorized to destroy ANY target posing a threat to Russian forces.

    4.) Russia's state of the art S400 air defence system has already landed and been setup at the Russian base in Latakia, Syria

    5.) Every air mission from now on in Syria will be escorted by Russian fighter jets equipped with the best radars, fastest missiles and most advanced radar jammers used by any army.

    Turkey should watch it's back. I sure would not want to be a Turkish pilot after this massive blunder. You might as well call them "dead men flying".

  14. It is worth to note that the "Turkoman" group who killed the pilot operates under Turkish (i.e. persons with Turkish citizenship) leadership and is essentially a Turko-nazi "Grey Wolves" group. Google is your friend, so is Wiki.

    The key phrase is "Alparslan Çelik, a Turkish citizen and Grey Wolves member"

    In the past, that organization was known for terrorist activity in Turkey, against normal people.

    Now Erdogan became their supporter.

  16. Russia is a hypocritical country and always has been. They have a habit of 'forgetting' where other countries' borders are, remember Ukraine? So, they are concerned if NATO gets too close to their space, but Turkey shouldn't have the same right if Russia puts S400 missiles near their border?

    Turkey is within their right to shot down any encroaching Russian planes, even if their cross their airspace for 1 sec, and it seems Turkey, rightly so, is determined to teach them that lesson.

    So far the Russian response has been pretty feeble. They threaten that the Russian tourists won't visit Turkey's resorts? Who goes in a beach resort in the dead of winter? Can you come up with a more credible threat Russia?

    The reason why Syria is where it is 5 years on, it's because of Russia, and their irrational support for a tyrannical dictator. That's what provided the fertile ground for ISIS and the rest of their gory terrorism.

    It’s a great pity of course but those two victims weren’t in vain. Today we have S-400 in the Mediterranean that one could not imagine a week ago. Israel and the USA didn’t even open their mouths. Also Russian planes are de facto hunting the Turkish ones in the Syrian air. To approach their own border the Turks had to raise 18 of the F-16 planes yesterday … ISIL and An Nusra have no more cover from the air. Strategic initiative is on our side and as soon as our 10 000 tourists a back Turks can expect a military respond. Right now we introduce economic sanctions and press them morally in Russia where we have 89 000 Turkish businessmen and workers. 39 businessmen were arrested today at an exhibition in the south. All economic projects are closed today. Including the USD 10 Bln. atomic station, Turkish Stream and everything else. Fruits and vegetables are arrested on the border ect. So we wait for the tourists to come back to raise the stakes. Lavrov already called them home. Seems that Russia is the safest place today.

  24. Very tragic that a Russian soldier ended up loosing his life but this idiotic action from Turkey will shine the spot light directly on the Devils face! I always mention in my comments " Root Problem ", like exterminating ants, we can kill one here or a few there but when we ignite the nest then we bring the problem to it's conclusion! Czar Vlade sitting back studying and watching! The greatest weakness of the enemy to expose it's position prematurely! Just like March 23, 1999, our Serbian blood and tears not in vain, Russia at that point in time not possible to respond with effect but the preperations set in motion for the next time around! So from March 23, 1999 Russia preparing for the unavoidable war that Satan has declared on all Eastern Orthodox Christianity in the world! Yes, we Serbian people suffered and bled and our sacred Holy lands occupied by the Devil but on the positive side Russia became the most powerfull military nation on earth as a result! The Devil with no fear of God and no shame of humaity! What will happen now, does any body out there think that Russia will forget or forgive Satan and the stupid action the Devil demonstrated to the whole world? The USA, England and Germany battle terrorist only with their lips and on the other side they slit the throats of all the innocent humanity to justify their evil cause! USA, England and Germany created their super monster terrorist now that monster is so angry and hungry and comming back home!!!

  26. Erdogan ( the Turkish for Hawk ) justifies his name every day. Yet he is a silly hawk who always make bad stakes. Four years ago he believed that Iran will remain isolated, that Assad will be overthrown, that Kurds will be weakened, that Russia will never intervene, that their Jihadists will occupy Iraq and Syria, that Hezbollah will not join the war, that NATO will have to support Erdogan’s land operation, that Russia will not implement sanctions ect. Today he makes another mistake by refusing to apologize as it unties Putin’s hands. As soon as our 10 000 tourists are back we’ll be ready show the difference between F-16 and SU-34. Also Russia already used the new opportunities and deployed S-400 and de facto introduced no fly zone in Syria. All who would not like to check the S-400 effectiveness must inform the Russians of their planes, routes, time ect. all including the USA, Israel, NATO satellites, Saudites ect.
