Russian Warplane Down: NATO’s Act of War

unnecessary news from earth

The escalation is “long feared” not because the Turkish government actually fears that Russian warplanes crossing their border pose a threat to it or its people, but because Russia has ended NATO’s proxy war, a proxy war spearheaded in part by Turkey itself, amid Russia’s joint military operations with Syria against the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) and supporting terrorist factions.

  1. I honestly think Putin was taking a calculated risk and knew it. Basically he was playing chicken with Turkey and NATO. I find all this talk of posthumous decoration of the dead pilot a bit cynical – it’s too reminiscent of all the Soviet heroes bullshit.

  2. I’m with you all the way!

    I find myself on the side of Putin and Russia right now. But unlike many people I know, I place no more trust in the power structure of the east than I do with the west.

    At the end of the day, there is a power elite in charge of both the east and west, and perhaps, even the same power elite running both sides.

    If government, wealth and power are involved, I trust no one or nation fully.
