Hmmm. Somebody knows something is on that flight that isn’t supposed to be there.

Russia needs to send a discrete message to Turkey not to mess with international flights to and from Russia, something that will get the Turks attention.

Back during the Cold War there was a Russian pilot who flew one of their leading edge MiG fighters into an airbase in Japan and defected.

The Russians really put on a saber rattling show to get the Japanese to return the plane. They finally did, but not after they had taken it completely apart and invited the Americans to take photos of everything.

Among other things, we discovered that the Ruskies were still using vacuum tube technology. Their jig was up not long after that incident.

If the Turks are still our allies, they'd do the same thing.

Could be military specialists (maybe in civilian dress) sent in advance of Russia entering the conflict. That would probably begin with an airlift. This would be to counter NATO reinforcing Turkey. If Syria falls it endangers Iran which is not in the interest of Russia. But this is all pure speculation.

Obama is now rapid dialing the Russians, offering to fly their ordanance into Syria, while sending initial US military assistants over to Syria.

Obama likes to play both sides against the other, have you noticed ( Fast and Furious/ Benghazzi Consulate)?

Obama wants instability, and a way to walk away from it without being involved.He got it in Libya, thats for sure.

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Turkey sharply escalated its confrontation with Syria on Wednesday, forcing a Syrian passenger plane to land in Ankara on suspicion of carrying military cargo, ordering Turkish civilian airplanes to stay out of Syrian airspace and warning of increasingly forceful responses if Syrian artillery gunners keep lobbing shells across the border.

Turkey’s NTV television said Turkish warplanes were dispatched to intercept a Syrian A-320 Airbus jetliner with 35 passengers en route from Moscow to Damascus, and force it to land at Esenboga Airport in Ankara, because it may have been carrying a weapons shipment to the Syrian government.

“We forced the plane to land in order to inspect its cargo,” the foreign minister, Ahmed Davutoglu, told NTV.
