So, Turkey just shot down a Russian airplane because it allegedly flew briefly over their airspace. Although this is not the first time Russia has violated their airspace, it was probably uncalled for since you're playing at war because a plane flew in your territoy for like 10 seconds at best.

The deputy speaker of Russia’s parliament, and a member of its international affairs committee, accused Turkey of supporting Islamic State [Isis] and shooting down the Russian plane over Syria. So the political consensus, although no official statement has been made, is that this won't be pretty. Seeing as Turkey is a part of NATO, this can escalate rather quickly.

NATO already summoned an emergency meeting for today, even before Russia's declarations. I guess it's alarming but a good sign that they're not underestimating this

Turkey has some dangerous neighbours, I can understand that in a situation like that they might shoot whatever violates their airspace (though I don't necessarily agree with doing so). The Turks will blame the Russians and the Russians will blame the Turks, and that's all that will happen.

Does turkey have nuclear weapons?
Because NATO could just nuke the fuck out of them. That way the Russians don't have to worry about invading their airspace anymore. It's the only possible solution here.
I have nothing important to say

Turkey is a part of NATO... At the most NATO can say Turkey's on its own but turning against them would be an international policy calamity even bigger than downing a Russian plane

Turkey are fucking morons, hope Russia wreck them and NATO refuse to support to them.

What complete and utter idiots.

What I don't get is the conflicting reports. Fair enough Russia don't want people to think they were in Turkish airspace, but why would Turkey claim to have shot down a Russian plane if they didn't?

Vladimir Putin said the loss of the jet “is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists”. In his first comments on the incident he said: “I can’t describe it in any other way.”

The Russian President said the jet was downed 4km inside Syria. He claimed the pilots were not a threat.

Someone's done the maths and it would've been in Turkish airspace for a total of 9 seconds, stupid dick waving by Turkey as it stands.

Funny considering Turkey constantly invade the airspace of countries like Greece. Imagine if they "defended themselves" in the same way.

I mean granted, for Greece right now that would probably mean throwing pieces of broken dinner plates at the planes, but whatever

there is no way that russia and nato are going at war.

If the cold war didn't spark that conflict, there is no way that a lone jet will cause it. No politician is that ******ed. If bloodthirsty Stalin didn't do it and trigger happy reagan didn't do it, I think it's safe to say that we're past the risk

Just incase you can't be bothered visiting them, the title of the article is:

World War Three could just be 30 seconds away!

I wonder who is trying to instill more fear into the British public? The mirror or ISIS? Seriously, the Mirror is the worst source of any sort of news ever, jeeso!

That's 9 seconds too long, especially in light of the capabilities of modern aircraft to NOT do that.

Given the dick-waving that Russia has historically done about their airspace and sovereignty, they don't have much of a complaint here.

It wasn't particularly prudent on the part of Turkey, but it was justifiable.

And it won't amount to much in the grand scheme of things.

Yeah Russia have been quite a bit of this for a while now. Seeing how close they can get to UK airspace before they respond, they've seemingly had a few warnings about this from the Turks previously, they were given warnings prior to the supposed incursion, I think the Turks were well within their rights provided the jet actually did cross into Turkish airspace. Especially considering how volatile the area is at the minute.

Given that this shit is normal by Russia (not saying it is right, btw) then it's even more stupid to kill the plane

Well that dork was a pretty important dork. World War II was started because a couple of dudes decided to steam roll into their neighbors. The only way I see WW3 starting is if Putin decides to roll into Turkey.
