Recommended Posts

Thta's not good.

Deserving of its own thread IMO, though merge if must.

Russian jet 'shot down by Turkish forces after planes violated country's airspace on Syrian bombing run'
  • Unconfirmed reports claim a Russian jet shot down by Turkish forces
  • Eyewitnesses on social media said they saw an explosion in northern Syria
  • Violations of Turkish air space by Russian jets has been alarming Nato

I don't think it is true.

Daily Mail, citing Twitter as a source. No other mainstream media seems to be touching the story.

The Mail got it from The Express.

But I take your point.

They picked that side some time ago.

We are they and they are we. NATO.. Except they only recognise Europeans as refugees and not Africans, which is awkward if your Syrian.

I challenge anyone to id a jet from a distance....look up, every see markings on jet liners? and this was supposed to be in Syria, and turks shot it down....

people locally were complaining about gliders overflying their house on landing at 50 ft...they were half a mile from the threshold..gliders at 50ft half a mile away?...nah.

UPdate.

the tweets are saying a Russian Mig fighter....I gather on SUs are in Syria, while Migs are Syrian.

Where are the rest of the planes...seems the report says the planes were "hovering"...

Well that's something else, but yep. I can't imagine the Kurds bombing a peace rally to stop the killing of Kurds. Also I can't believe Turkey would do it because to do so would be so transparent that there would be no gain.

I can believe ISIS would do something like this as division only makes them stronger.

So we have a problem of ISIS in Turkey?

There was no Russian operated plane shot down, or probably any plane at all.

Some of the reports say a MIG 29, but then Russia isn't operating those (they are old) so not sure who would be flying it.

Well there you have it. HPC's very own Kremlin Hotline has spoken.
