Well it looks like Turkey is going to get their NO-FLY zone after all. This will keep the illegal sale of Syria’s stolen oil to Turkey flowing. The President of Turkey has had a telephone conversation with President Obama after the downing of the Russian jet where Obama has said, "The leaders agreed on the importance of de-escalating the situation and pursuing arrangements to ensure that such incidents do not happen again". The arrangements they pursue will be a NO-FLY zone to protect their interests.
A bit about Turkey’s President wanting to put 2 children aged 12 and 13 in jail for ripping down a poster of him can be read here. Attacking the PKK who are attacking ISIS here and wanting to put journalists in jail here.
Something’s amiss with Turkey stating in their letter to the UN directly after the incident that the jet was in their air space for 17 seconds over 1.15 miles. That means the jet was flying at stall speed of 243mph/388kmh (1.15/17x60x60). The SU-24’s maximum speed at altitude is 1654kmh. The letter also states they did not know the nationality of the fighter jets. Does this mean they shoot down any jet that comes near their air space? Why not make radio contact and fly alongside the jets to escort them away from the border as is the case every other time?
The Greek people are also not happy with Turkey and double standards as Turkish jets encroached their air space 2,244 times in 2014 alone. Then there is the fact that the Russians are the only ones obeying international law in Syria by being asked by the legitimate government of Syria to attack ISIS.
One pilot was killed by moderate rebels as he parachuted to the ground and the other pilot was rescued by the Syrian army. The rescued pilot also says that they were given no warning before being shot in the tail and downed.
The stories on mainstream media are amazing with the propaganda that goes on. This from Paul Craig Roberts’ article;
‘Do not expect any truth from any Western government or from any Western media. Governments and media know that the Western populations are uneducated, unaware, and can be relied upon to accept any preposterous story’.
‘NPR this morning confirmed that the media is a government propaganda organ. The Diane Rehm show on NPR presented us with a group of talking heads. Only one was informed, a professor at the Middle East Institute of the London School of Economics. The rest of the “experts” were the typical dumbshit Americans. They repeated all of the lies. “Russia is attacking everyone except ISIS.” How can there be anyone but ISIS to attack when the US general overseeing the area recently told Congress that “only 5” of our trained “rebels” remained? Yet the myth of “moderate rebels” is kept alive by these liars’.
My friend in Melbourne sent me a text message yesterday, it read...
‘On talkback down here most callers are bashing Russia along with the shock jock. This guy comes on and says just this. Russia is the good guy in this and I will tell you why. He gets cut off by the shock jock who says yes the Middle East is a complicated situation. The guy didn’t get a chance to say anything. Had another guy saying the pilots got killed as they parachuted. Shock jock said there’s no proof of that’. My friend then e-mailed them some links.
