Russia Turkey, different take

Posted: November 26, 2015 in Uncategorized

I strongly believe that Turkey shot down the Russian plane as a warning as Russia is really crippling IS (while Turkey wants to crippled Assad) and hitting the Turkey /IS lifeline for oil and troop reinforcement.

But it is impossible that Putin did not know it could happen and he could have send some air superiority fighter to protect the SU 24 bomber.

A few ideas.

Putin could not risk that Russian warplane shot down Turkish plane first.

Putin could want this to happen so to expose Turkey / IS connection

Putin is realigning with France so this create a wedge between France Nato and Turkey US

It could be a distraction for Ukraine
