A Russian plane was just shot down by Turkish air force for border intrusion. One of two pilots is reportedly captured by Turkmen. A picture of a dead body has been posted on social media supposedly that of the Russian pilot.
Russia claims the plane was still within Syrian territory.
Also, the fact that a Turkish news camera was ready when the event took place suggests a premeditated plan by the Turks to shoot down any Russian plane operating against Islamic State did exist.
Understand that when these two pilots ejected, there were no signs that any one of them was in distress.
The Turkish border near Raqqah City and Latakia serve as the lifeline for ISIS.
Obviously, the Turkish government is just waiting for the right opportunity to shoot down one of those Russian planes compromising its investments on the Islamic State.
Even the GuardianUK map indicates the plane was still within Syrian territory.
It would be very interesting to see how Putin would respond in the next few days. Remember, 40 countries had been warned beforehand about the upgraded Russian efforts against the Islamic State.
For Turkey to go this far clearly shows its undeniable support for the Islamic State terrorists rather than on the world’s desire to get rid of the latter.
Being a NATO member, any clash with Turkey would draw closer to a BRICS-NATO confrontation. This is what the Washington warmongers are really counting on.
