This is the official Turkish radar track of the Russian aircraft they shot down, in red. It briefly transited a tiny neck of Turkish land – less than two miles across where the Russian jet passed – twice. I calculate that each “incursion” over Turkish territory would have lasted about 10 seconds, assuming the plane was flying slowly at 600mph. That Turkey shot down the plane for this is madness, and absolutely indefensible. It is fairly obvious from the track that the plane was operating against Turkish sponsored Turkmen rebels inside Syria, and that is why the Turks shot it down.

But the inescapable conclusion is that the true madness would be for the UK to get involved in Syria and make a complex and volatile situation still worse, and risk being dragged into wider conflict.

  • I wondered why would America and the UK suddenly side with Russia, “lets play nice, get Turkey to down a Russian jet and then be forced to protect our NATO friend” fools forget Putin is no mad dog.
    Remember WWI,
    Russia = Allied
    Turkey = Axis
    Old news, not to the British slaughtered
    WWII = Turks kept out of this one, but profited from both sides, whilst many Allied/Axis died from their none involvement :grin: , If I recall history correctly.
    Will Turkey now be used to force WWIII, a big win for the NWO.
