GUYS!!!Don't you think that Turkey has the right to fear Russia because of the Russians past actions plus adding to the fact that Russia is ruled by a dictator a.k.a Vladimir Putin who was kind of irrational in this case stating to Turkey that they should never do it again or the Russian military would launch nuclear missiles into Turkey.But at the end of the day,whose fault was it really???RUSSIANS OR THE TURKEYS???To me,I believe that the Turkey did what they believe to be right.
if what turkey says is true about the incident then they were justified. they claim the plane was in their airspace and warned 10 times in 5 minutes. if true then they had the right to defend their airspace. that's not why they did it, but they had a justification. they did it because they want to topple Assad and are supporting the rebels that the Russians are bombing.
I am reserving my judgement until more information is available. It is hard to trust Russia about what happened since they have lies so recently about a downed passenger plane.
