Once again, it seems Turkey are protecting IS-held territories.

which bit of they violated terggish airspace are you having difficulty understanding. in any case this is terggoman territory if you want to label it. son to be joined with terggy democratically of course.


So the RoC would be well justified to shoot down the many violations of Turkeys in our airspace??? Or is that not allowed??? I mean if Turkey has a right to protect its airspace, surely we do to.

Or perhaps we just done have the cojones to do it!!

Anyway, my thoughts are with the Russian Pilots. At this point, I fear they may be behind enemy lines in DAESH controlled areas maybe, so I hope they can stay safe.

In fact, I hope the pilots are safe in Turkey because I don't want to hear of their beheading or be burnt alive. Absolutely atrocious that would be.

In fact, Pootin should ask the Americans or Australians for assistance and an emergency rescue of their boys. The Americans and Australians have the specialist troops to insert behind enemy lines, track down the Russians and extricate them.

The troops can be there in no time at all with appropriate air cover and Helicopters.

I am sure both America and Australia will assist. The SAS will be perfect for this kind of job.

That remains to be seen. The fact is that Turkey shot down a plane that was a threat ONLY to IS. Turkey is therefore protecting IS.

This proves how much Turkey is in bed with IS.

If Putin would like to extend his fly-overs to the north of Cyprus and destroy that "Turkish Islamic State" illegally setup on our lands, he is 100% welcome!

More Power to Putin - and I pray for those pilots.

Exactly why?

Because I object to IS?

or

Because I object to Turkey setting up an IS in Cyprus?

or

Because I pray for the pilots?

Thank you for the clarification Lordo.

So, the Russian jet was flying over Syrian territory that Turkey wishes to soon annex.

cheers

There's a very sketchy report that one of the pilots is dead and the other has been captured by Turkmen fighters (who have been engaging against Assad regime forces of late). The picture on the following page is purportedly that of the dead airman, but it doesn't look very clear to me.

I think Putin should now put on his poker face and say: "I see you and raise you"... and then nuke Ankara (small nuke, we don't want the fallout to reach us :lol:)

According to Turkish military sources, the line in red shows the path taken by the plane involved as tracked by radar:
