Turkey was supposed to be a pal of Russia, this is like the US shooting down a Canadian jet that according to the US floated across US air space for 17 seconds and then we shot it down as they were headed back to Canada,
Turkey was working at decent relations that were only agreed to after the death of Soviet Russia.
The analogy is kinda lame unless you would consider , instead of Canada, it should be CUBA, and the US was bombing Mexico by over-flying Cuba. Cuba gave us several warnings (as did Turkey to Russia) and then scrambled.(Course, we would have sent different apparatus)
So, like Russia once fired on and brought down a Commercial airliner as it flew off course over the Sakhalin Is, . As roger said, is Russia the only one who you grant the right of protecting their borders under threat of an increasingly ambitious Russian leader.
I think you and gunga are bent on fellating Putin , I really dont understand your stances (OH YEH, you both hate Obama )
