Erdogan made worse than a crime - he was wrong

Erdogan made worse than a crime - he was wrongRussia will force Turkey to apologize in various ways - to ensure non-repetition of sabotage and to teach a lesson on how to behave with our country. But with all the need and imminence of bringing Erdogan back to life, one should not forget who benefits from the escalation of the Russian-Turkish conflict and its transfer to the stage of long-term confrontation. Certainly not Moscow, and not Ankara.


The Turkish leadership is already trying to mitigate the consequences of the destruction of the Russian military aircraft for bilateral relations. But, for example, the president is doing this in such a way that only worsens the situation - Erdogan’s statement that the Turks did not know whose plane they shot down cannot be called anything but a blatant lie. Prime Minister Davutolgu said that Ankara is not interested in exacerbating relations with Russia, because he considers her "friend and neighbor", but he also did not bring any apologies - the Turks continue to insist that they defended their territory.

Of course, Erdogan understood that the destruction of the aircraft would cause an acute crisis in relations with Russia, but at the same time he still believed that Putin would take his actions the way the Turkish president himself wanted: the Turks should be reckoned with more in the Syrian crisis, their role Syria cannot be understated in determining the future structure, and their position regarding both the Syrian Turkoman and the Syrian Kurds should be accepted by both Russia and the United States. Russia did not seek to annoy Turkey with its military operation, but objectively after the start of our actions aviation Erdogan felt humiliated. The fighting of the Syrian army with the support of Russian aviation in the area of ​​residence of the Syrian Turks, who are fighting both ISIS and Assad, pushed Ankara to make some kind of decision. Because it was silent to watch how troops consisting of even Syrian, but practically Turks, squeezed out of their territory, Ankara could not.

But instead of trying to agree with Russia and Damascus on the future of the Turkic population of Syria, Erdogan decided to go all-in - to demonstrate his coolness to Putin. It is not known what the two leaders spoke about ten days ago in Antalya, but it is clear that Erdogan was not satisfied with that conversation, and only after it and just a few hours after Putin’s trip to Tehran, that is, to historical Turkey’s rivals and Assad’s main allies, he decided to exponentially destroy the Russian aircraft. The solution, which, as it seemed to him, guarantees Turkey, albeit through a crisis in relations with Russia, an increase in the value of its shares both in the "Syrian hub" and in the Middle East as a whole, and even at the global level.

Did Erdogan have any reason to believe that Russia, although it will react violently to the destruction of the aircraft, will not threaten bilateral relations and after a while everything will return to normal? Most likely, he incorrectly assessed the soft reaction of Russia to his spring (after Putin’s trip to Yerevan) and autumn (after the start of the Syrian campaign) harsh statements to Moscow. Then Erdogan rather rudely publicly blackmailed Russia by the fact that it risks losing such an important partner as Turkey - in the first case because of the recognition of the genocide, and in the second because of the military support of Assad.

Putin did not respond in the same tone, and Erdogan most likely decided that bilateral relations and joint plans were the most expensive for the Kremlin. Turkey is very much needed by Russia, and nowhere will Moscow get away from it, especially in conditions of conflict with the West. Erdogan most likely did not consider the decision to bring down the plane as fateful: yes, the risk, yes, the increase in the rates, yes, the big game, but nothing, give it a ride. But it’s strange that during 12’s years of acquaintance with Putin, Erdogan, “Anatolian Putin,” as the West calls it all, as he used to measure all patterns, the West did not understand the character of the Russian president. Turkey is really very important to Russia - not only because of the current conflict with the United States, but also strategically - but Putin, like our country, does not forgive the betrayal, which was a stab in the back from the Turkish side. They do not forgive not the Turks, but Erdogan personally.

That is, the relationship is likely to recover even under Erdogan, when he apologizes for November 24, but the two leaders will not have personal confidence. This is the same thing that happened to Putin with Obama and the European leaders after the coup in Kiev in February 2014, when they first asked him to persuade Yanukovich to sign an agreement with the Maidan, and the next day, after his overthrow, they recognized the new government and " forgotten about the need to comply with the agreements guaranteed by the West. After such a personal relationship can be maintained, but with a person who does not comply with personal agreements, it is impossible to make plans for the future. And in the case of November 24, there was also a public insult to the country, that is, the situation is even worse.

But Putin, that is, Russia, offered a truly strategic partnership in the person of Erdogan of Turkey: while both parties remember the historical, and even today's geopolitical contradictions, it was possible to build mutually beneficial relations. All issues are solvable - and even Syrian - provided that both partners do not try to deceive each other and have at least partially coinciding interests. We have common interests: like Russia, Turkey is a sovereign state (NATO’s limiter is rather conditional, and in general Atlantic and supranational control over Turkey is much weaker than, for example, Germany), interested not just in strengthening its role in world, but also in the work on a new global architecture that will replace the “American-style world”.

Regional, national and even religious ambitions of Turkey do not necessarily have to conflict with the geopolitical and national interests of Russia. Especially if both countries agree that the main task for them is to strengthen their own civilization, and are ready to help each other in this work, and not to fight each other. One of the components of the Russian civilization is the Turkic element (starting with the same Tatars), and soon after the last Russian-Turkish war, which ended a hundred years ago, Moscow helped a lot to even leave a strong Turkish state from the Ottoman Empire.

Now there is a rivalry for influence in the Caucasus, but even a clash of interests in Georgia and Azerbaijan can, with a mutual desire, be translated into cooperation. Ankara’s attempts to become a leader for the Turkic peoples of Central Asia were largely unsuccessful, but the pan-Turkic project was doomed to failure anyway after Russia began returning to the post-Soviet space as an integrator and security guarantor. If Turkey does not pretend to oust Russia from Central Asia and does not play against us there, then everything else, including the delimitation of economic interests, can be agreed.

Pan-Islamic or pan-Arab ambitions of Turkey are not in fundamental contradiction with the interests of Russia (although they require us to take into account the interests of Iran), if, again, it does not consider itself as a “patron” of Russian Muslims. A large number of immigrants from the North Caucasus in Turkey, including former Chechen militants, does not mean at all that Ankara is doomed to be a center of anti-Russian forces. Experience the old, 19 century, Muhajir emigration from the North. The Caucasus (when, for example, many Adygs who fought with Russia during the Caucasian War left) shows that their descendants in their absolute majority no longer carry any special anti-Russian charge.

The rivalry in the Balkans, because of which, as well as because of the Caucasus, we mainly fought in the past, remains now, but even here both countries have at least a common competitor - the Germans and the European Union. Simply put, Turkey and Russia could work together and develop in the expanses of Eurasia - as heirs, even so different, of the Second Rome (Byzantium). As civilizations opposing the Atlantic project of a global melting pot, after all, Erdogan and Putin are patriots and nationalists, independent statesmen, and they are in favor of strengthening the traditional foundations of their civilization countries.

Agreeing on strategic cooperation with Russia, China, India and even Iran’s traditional rival Turkey would be much more profitable than playing games with the West, which each time ended for Istanbul, and then Ankara by simply using and deceiving them. And used in recent centuries, mainly for anti-Russian purposes.

And the most offensive for Turkey is that the current Erdogan adventure, which will not bring any benefits to the Turks, but only losses, can be used in the same way. True, the maximum damage would have been if Russia had led to provocation and, instead of teaching Erdogan, to start playing against Turkey as such, including playing the Kurdish card.

But, fortunately Turkey, Russia will not do this, because it is not in its strategic interests. We need a strong, friendly Turkey, just as it is needed by the nationally thinking and self-sufficient part of the Turkish elite, who understand the importance of serious relations with Russia. Turkey, like Russia, is not the West, and if Russia no longer plays other people's games, then, alas, Turkey can now be drawn into the anti-Russian combination, thanks to Erdogan. Of course, Erdogan did not want this, but he himself created a situation in which the atlantists have new opportunities for “playing Turkish”.

What Erdogan did was more than a crime, it was a mistake, and those who tried to organize a blockade would try to take advantage of it, and now they are doing everything to contain Russia. Now they will try to slay Russia and Turkey - naturally, while not acting openly - to do so in order to block the possibility of joint work between our two countries for decades. And to place Turkey in that anti-Russian redoubt, which the Atlantists gathered to build around Russia - from the Baltic to the Caucasus.

Another thing is that Russia is simultaneously working on building a broad front against the Atlantic project as such, and plans to build an anti-Russian redoubt will not be possible. But “forgetting” about Turkey or starting to spoil it wherever possible would be completely wrong. Hard to teach Erdogan a lesson should and should be, but without insulting Turkey and not pushing its people away from Russia.

      Turkish military aviation suspended flights over Syrian territory as part of an international coalition operation against the “Islamic State” after the incident with the downed Russian Su-24 bomber. This was reported by local media with reference to diplomatic sources.

          While there was no military response from Russia! Instead, Putin begs for some kind of apology and compensation that no one thinks to give. But Erdogan is already threatening! Erdogan: If the S-400 in Syria is shot down by a Turkish plane, we will answer!

          It seems like our aviation and MLRS worked on the site of the crash of Su-24, and reported that they had left the scorched earth, but then why did the Syrian army still not take this place, since they killed all the militants?
          Russia will shoot at the temple of Turkey if it supports and arms the Kurds! Why are you shy? Turks are arming terrorists and nothing!

              I did not write that I want this. I think it is urgent to help the Syrians occupy the Turkish border, it continues very slowly! And arm the Kurds! They themselves ask for it!

              A group of Kurds raising funds for Christian refugees in Kurdistan wrote on their social media page that the Kurds wanted to avenge the dead Russian Su-24 pilots in the sky over Syria.

              “Dear Russia, we Kurds will be happy to avenge your pilots. Just give us MANPADS, we will make a good no-fly zone for Erdogan, ”the report said.

                Kurds overdo it, it is indisputable. And it is dangerous.
                What is better to do to Putin?
                Punish Erdogan himself (how? So far no one knows), and not Turkey.
                This is the meaning of the author of the article, which (meaning) I do not quite like.
                You can’t get involved in a shootout.
                Although, if Turkish aircraft and equipment appear in Syria, they should disappear, otherwise why the hell they brought so many weapons there.

                Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? Have you forgotten that Putin is not engaged in subversive activities, i.e. does he ONLY deal with the legal government? It is "our Western partners" who are betting mainly on the opposition. So what, do the same ?! "End justifies the means"?! V.V. Putin works for the long term in international relations, he is a strategist, not a tactician!

                  Whoever chooses shame between war and shame will end up with both. Nobody wants a third world war. It has been going and has been going for a long time. It's just that shots are being fired in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and one of the theaters is already close to the Russian borders (I'm talking about Ukraine). Turkey should be kicked like a mischievous dog, kicked so that Ankara would howl for a long time and loudly (it is not necessary to bomb, as many have noticed, you can arm the Kurds, help arrange them a couple of three sabotages at Turkish military facilities, infrastructure facilities, etc., i.e., do what Turkey was engaged in the 90s in our Caucasus), what kind of drool and snot about the fact that supporting separatist movements is not our method? Are we in the sandbox or where? "the enemy of my enemy is always a friend, as long as the common enemy lives", what kind of slobbery about working with "legitimate" authorities? "legal" US henchmen were turning everyone and everything, it's like talking to the deaf! Here the principle is one "with wolves to live like a wolf howl" you have to pay the aggressor with his own coin! otherwise the downed Su-24 will be the beginning.

              But doesn’t the USA want to get its bases in Alaska?

              If the Turks continue to officially conduct themselves in this way, then they will definitely get to their bases, even without re-shooting.
              If they do not continue, then perhaps everything will work out only by knocking down their F-16s (from 2 pcs or more).

The author of the article is Pyotr Akopov, in the original is Hakobyan, although he is an Armenian, in history, a fierce enemy of the Turks, but he painted everything very soberly and correctly .... The author and the article plus ... And our liberalism is trying to dissolve Putin through " public "opinions on harsh, as if not military, retaliatory actions ... A year and a half ago, these same comrades tried to force Putin to send an army to Ukraine ... They failed, they will not succeed this time ... I think at the end In the end, Erdogan, gritting his teeth, will apologize (otherwise his businessmen will tear him up) and the incident will be hushed up ...

            If the S-400 in Syria crashes a Turkish plane, we will answer!

            And since there will be no Turkish aircraft in Syria anymore, Erdogan turned out to be formidable and no one will take down the plane and no one will answer. So what did Erdogan achieve by shooting down a plane? He has ensured that we now have all of Syria at gunpoint. He didn’t go there. His country is suffering losses (albeit not fatal). The Turkmen for whom he allegedly harnessed, they simply urinate, and he looks at it. Free oil both burned and burned. And what did he win? Who did he do worse?

            Do you think he wants to start a war with Russia? Nothing of the kind. What for!!!? So that later his country would be torn into pieces by the powers that be, as is now happening with Syria? There are no bad people to become front-line in the global war.

              Our planes will not be near the Turkish border either. According to the same media reports ("sources on condition of anonymity stated that this decision (to suspend flights) was made jointly with Russia, which allegedly also suspended flights near the Turkish border"), this is a mutual termination of flights on the "dangerous" section. So the Turks got what they wanted. Let's see what happens next, in theory it will depend on how much Erdogan goes overboard.

                The Turks will lose VERY much, and have not gained anything (Erdogan may have personally acquired it from an exclusive Negro), ours will also fly to the Turkish border, but only now accompanied by fighters !!!

                You did not think that we also have nuclear weapons. But the Turks knew whose plane they were shooting down and declared that they were right, i.e. they weren’t afraid of him.
                For a downed Turkish plane, we were not subjected to rocket fire.
                Wars begin because of very good reasons, and not because of high-profile occasions.

                  I don’t know what they promised him and how Obama divorced him at the g20 summit, where they discussed this topic, but Turkey is losing a lot and gaining nothing. (The fact that they defended the Turkamans there can only be crazy if you believe it, especially since the elections were held, how PR is unnecessary) Syria will still be divided into 2 parts, Americans with NATO, they will not give their part to us, in any case. Well, we will release the so-called useful Syria, namely the coast. We will sell their plane, which will become easier for you, economic a blow where they lose their position as a gas hub, nuclear power plant and much more, costs hundreds of planes. Do you want a complete break, with Turkey, forever or is it profitable for us to crush them economically so that when the new government comes, they crawl to us with an apology .Now they are trying to isolate us, from all the cracks, it’s wiser to be, if Turkey still gets into it, they’ll break it, there’s no doubt about it, but only in Syria, we can’t attack its territory, since there is the largest base of NATO nuclear weapons.

                    Everything is very simple. As you put it, if Turkey climbs and is defeated, THEN THE CONSEQUENCES WILL BE EXACTLY THE SAME as in the case of "revenge for the sake of honor."
                    Erdogan will consider aggression if the Russian S-400 crashes a Turkish plane over Syria.
                    I think if we do not shoot it down, then they will "help" us again - they will again shoot down our plane of the type "violator of the Turkish Air Force" and declare it an aggression.

                      With Zakhar, I agree completely. We were kicked into the anus, and we just grimaced a little and mooed something about sanctions, an economic response, and other guano for sad patriots. What sanctions will we introduce to the Turks ??? Do not make me laugh God. As always, the population of Russia itself will suffer the most from these sanctions. Unfortunately, the greatness of Russia occurs only in words in the studios of all Solovievs and Tolstoys

                And about the tricky moves and the big politics of Russia. Over the past 8 years, we have been surrounded in the West and South by some enemies who used to be part of our country, speak the same language with us, have the same education and upbringing. Ally only Belarus.

              And you do not confuse courage with frostbite! Erdogan showed himself to be a complete scumbag and his political rating collapsed. He simply confused politics and show business ... Erdogan reminds me of Dzhigurd: a lot of show-offs, a lot of shocking and do not care that serious people look with condemnation (or - with disgust) ... In general - a classic leader of the Stone Age tribe.

                The difference between courage and "frostbittenness" lies only in the negative or positive assessment of this phenomenon. It's like a scout and a spy. If ours is a scout.
                Where did his political rating collapse? He is the hero of all the enemies of Russia which she has a lot of. And a precedent since the Great Patriotic War. When our military aircraft were still openly shot down not invading the territory of the shot down, not in the war, officially declaring that they were not Syrian, Egyptian or Vietnamese, but Russian? Yes, and did not receive an answer.

                  to the question of our downed planes (quickly found one case, but there were more)

                  October 08 1950 in 16.17 local time two US Air Force fighters Lockheed F-80C “Shooting Star” (“Meteor”) violated the state border of the USSR and, going deeper by almost 100 km, attacked the Sukhaja ​​Rechka military airfield in 165 km from Vladivostok, in the Khasansky district. As a result of shelling, seven aircraft of the Soviet squadron were damaged by US Air Force aircraft in the parking lot, one of which was completely burned out.
                  Not so long ago, one of the owners of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. (a former participant in the fighting in Korea) in Washington, DC, asked a Russian journalist: “What do you know about the incident that occurred in 1950 at the Sukhaya Rechka airfield? In your opinion, was it a provocation or a mistake? "Replied:" This incident has become a disgrace for the United States. The very idea that the two pilots did not know where they were, did not know the location of the Soviet border and were not able to understand what they were attacking at the airfield seemed incredible.
                  The United States said the strike was hit due to a navigation error and an incorrect assessment of the situation. The Air Force commander was withdrawn, and the pilots punished. States offered to pay the damage. USSR decided not to inflate scandal ". And another former participant in the fighting in Korea added: “The incident on the Dry River is hushed up until now, and most likely you will not be able to find a person in the USA who has heard of him ...”

                  If then the USSR would plummet in response, we might be there wouldn’t be now ..
                  I.V. Stalin was not a pacifist, he was responsible for the people and knew what war was ..
                  Think with your head fool Are you ready for a war with NATO? Yes, it is unlikely - but there are 1-2% ...

                    "The United States said that the strike was caused by an error in navigation and a misjudgment of the situation. The Air Force commander was removed, and the pilots were punished. The United States offered to pay for the damage. The USSR decided not to stir up the scandal." And another former combatant in Korea added: "The incident on Sukhaya Rechka is hushed up to this day, and most likely you will not be able to find a person in the US who would have heard about it ...". "
                    They then apologize, plus the Soviet aircraft destroyed the American in Korea at that moment. No shame.
                    My grandfather's brother fought in Korea and shot down Americans and there was even a case when both planes fell. Amer shouts "Ivan, I am going there and you disperse here" and did so.

With the plane, he created a situation in which the Turks look bad on either side, any performance by Erdogan and Davutoglu only worsens their position within the country and their attitude to Turkey in the world. Almost everything is turned away from them, starting with NATO allies. Of all the countries bordering Turkey, it has no disputes only with Azerbaijan, and that is only because it has some kind of accession in any form.

          The Russian-Turkish conflict forced the Greeks to recall the prophecies of the elder Paisius Svyatogorets http://mixednews.ru/archives/91931
          Specifically, Paisius’s prediction was as follows: “Some events will occur that will end in the fact that we will again regain Constantinople. There will be a war between Turkey and Russia. In the beginning, the Turks will think that they are winning, but this will lead to their defeat. The Russians will ultimately win and capture Constantinople. After that, he will become ours. They will have to give the city to us. ”

          The text goes on to say: “The Turks will be defeated. They will be scattered, because this nation was created without the blessing of the Lord. The third part of the Turks will return back to where they came from, deep into Turkey. Another third will be saved, because they will accept the Christian faith, and the rest will be killed in this war. " This is based on the prophecy of St. Cosmas of Aetolia.

          Elder Paisius rested on July 12, 1994. Among his notes were found the words: “I only dreamed that the Lord would save my life for several more years. Then I would see my country expanding its possessions. And this will happen ... "

          “Turkey will be fragmented. It will benefit our country. Thus, our villages will finally gain freedom, our enslaved homeland. Constantinople will be liberated, it will again become a Greek city. Hagia Sophia will be open again, ”the text reads.

          “Turkey will be divided into three or four parts. The countdown has already begun. We will regain the lands that belong to us, the Armenians will receive their lands back, and the Kurds - theirs. A lot of people will rejoice. And all this will happen in these years. The time has come ”.http: //mixednews.ru/archives/91931
          The mess is not in closets, but in the minds - the reason for all the troubles, probably the Russians are again being pushed to drag chestnuts for others. , and Muslims will be shown in Russian as enemies.

But no matter how you hide from the problem behind your illusions, reality will not go anywhere.

The vaunted NATO shoved the advertised 5th article into one dark deep place, thereby showing that they are not eager to arrange a real batch with an angry Russia, especially if the reason for the batch is only the Turks. This, by the way, should be taken into account by other especially noisy countries, which are all repeating "NATO will come, we will be protected."

            The Kurds must be unequivocally armed. Yes, we control the territory of Syria, however, the Kurds will be able to provide Erdogan with a sweet life on the territory of Turkey itself. Erdogan wanted to build a buffer zone in northern Syria supposedly to help refugees? Well, let's bring this good purpose to life. That's just the buffer it will be for the PKK. First, clean everything there, we are from the air, on the ground, the Kurds themselves, clean. Then block the border (which means depriving ISIS of money, ammunition, medicine and other pleasures of life) and launch the Kurds there for the settlement. The Turks, of course, will be indignant, but they will not be able to fly anyway, because the slightest flight beyond the territory will be severely suppressed.
            The bottom line:
            1) Isil will remain with a pretty battered wallet, without regular replenishment of weapons and militants,
            2) Erdogan will simply be left without money, but it will gain even greater problems with the Kurds than now,

            In fact, NATO shot at us.

            They shot at NATO, and at us. And shot by a NATO member. In order to wreak havoc already in Europe. Judge for yourself, is it really profitable for Europe to have a war with us, and right now, when they have their own problems up to their throats. And now they will give up everything and start fighting a nuclear power. Yes, while they will collect the army, the Russian Federation in a day or two will cover half of Europe with its S-400. Then what? .. Look at how NATO behaves, it seems that all together supported the Turk, and then each one of himself spoke out that this is a private affair of the Russian Federation and Turkey, let them settle it among themselves. In Russian speaking, they threw Erdogan, take it out yourself. Some who even managed to "get through" to the Kremlin, express their condolences personally. We must look deeper who is the beneficiary here. In my opinion, not Europe at all.
            They chose a strong enough, ambitious, eccentric leader and set up in full. From here and throwing all yesterday: they knew - did not know whose plane; did not get through to the Kremlin (at least someone in the world can believe this?); We will not apologize, but we do not want to spoil the relationship; in the end, generally a pearl, F-16 itself fired, of its own free will, and professional cameras accidentally ended up in the bushes ... He then (Erdogan), thought he was now a hero, swung at this, and the customer sent him ... to himself to disentangle everything.
            I understand that this sounds corny, but all traces lead overseas ... IMHO

          Erdogan: If the Russians bring down our plane over Syria, we will declare war


          Turkish President Recep Erdogan said he would consider an act of aggression against Turkish sovereignty a situation if a Turkish military plane that violated Syrian airspace was shot down using a Russian anti-aircraft complex. He stated this in an interview with CNN.

          “Of course, this will be an act of aggression against our sovereignty. We, like any other state, will defend it with military force, ”the Turkish President said.

          Erdogan also noted that he considers such a development of events quite probable. He specified that in such a situation Turkey would take “urgent measures”, but did not specify which ones.

          Relations between Russia and Turkey sharply escalated after the Russian Su-24 bomber was shot down on the Syrian-Turkish border on November 24. The pilot was killed on the ground after the bailout, and the navigator was later rescued by Russian special forces.

          Erdogan, commenting on the incident, said that Turkey did not know about the belonging of the aircraft to the Russian Air Force and that otherwise the reaction could have been different. Russian President Vladimir Putin later called Erdogan’s statement “nonsense” and “excuse”.

          What did they do with our Su-24 allegedly violating their border ?! Right, shot down, without trial. Well, it will be so with your jackal, which will fly where they are not asked.
          Comrade Erdogan was circumcised in full, and now he is trying to get out, and for one more, and, supposedly, to threaten. Only all this contradicts his own logic, which they were guided by, shooting down our Su-24.

          Erdogan is in an inadequate state of mind.
          To make such a decision (to deliberately shoot down our plane) was something on the map that the damage, both political and economic, and everything else, could not be compared to losses.
          All the same, oil, money from its sale and everything related to the war is simply a business for Erdogan.
          And very cool.
          It remains to find those who bought from him.
          Not all for cash.

    But with all the necessity and inevitability of bringing Erdogan to life, one must not forget who benefits from the escalation of the Russian-Turkish conflict and its transfer to the stage of long-term confrontation.


    I agree.
    When emotions calmed down, you can now calmly analyze in detail all the details of this provocation.
    I am inclined to the version of PROKHANOV ... he quite intelligibly explained that the successes of RUSSIA in the Middle East will try to nullify with the help of provocation.
    Since the F-16, which is in service with TURKEY, manufactured by the United States, the US State Department set the conditions for those who use it to give prior notice and obtain permission to use it in dubious cases ... ERDOGAN received approval from the United States for provocation and this explains his impudence.

    The United States does not want to disclose all the details of this case to Lavrov, although he asked this direct question to Washington officials.

    In general, all indirect evidence leads to the US State Department.

    That is, paint for repainting shells in moderate, light tones is now no longer necessary.

    On the other hand, Germany is sending its ship to the shores of Syria, the "coalition" is working with its aviation (everything is clear with the Turks, but with the rest?) - how can we coordinate efforts with them now and explain to our S-400 who is an ally and who is not?

        the plane flies, the pilot does not answer and does not turn off, how can he understand Turkish or not? On the basis of the Air Force in Turkey, and the Americans are based.
        And if everything is clear with the Turks and they have set themselves up in the eyes of the whole world, then we have to think about the Americans ... Now you can also expect provocations from the Americans, who are doing their best to present us as the aggressor, getting out of the water. Our Su-24, they say, flew an American electronic warfare plane and insured the ground-based Patriot (they write, I don’t know if it’s true, but I won’t be surprised), it turns out that they pushed the Turks to attack our "dryer". Setups, when the Turks can be pushed forward (who will answer in an unfortunate coincidence of circumstances, since they have nothing to lose), and to beat them on the sly, you can realize a certain amount depending on the situation. The air defense calculation may need to request instructions from above. This is politics, the military does not always need to take responsibility.
        If anyone knows how the calculation of air defense works in such cases - explain, it’s interesting.
        I, of course, hope that the S-400 will keep the "coalition" together with the Turks in good shape and sound mind. But no one can guarantee

        Yesterday they tried, but the wind blew. Now the Americans decided to substitute their cutthroats, they detect anti-aircraft installations along the border with Turkey, and in the event of an attack on Russia they will begin to put pressure. S-400 undoubtedly tempered the ardor, but in this situation this is not enough, if necessary, it is necessary, without fear of anyone, to show the whole world in action.

    Erdogan should be taught a good lesson, but without offending Turkey and not pushing her people away from Russia.

    At the political and state level, Turkey was not only not insulted, but also spoke with it in a diplomatic language. VVP told the truth, which is based on facts, calling Turkey an accomplice of terrorists. Unlike Russia, the Turkish "leaders" in an ultimatum and rude form addressed our country. In recent weeks, there have been direct threats against us. And Erdogan pushed Turkey away from the people of Russia, and this is beyond doubt.

    Yes, a funny article. On the one hand, it is bluntly said that Erdogan decided that he would get away with everything completely when Putin did not respond to his boorish statements this year and decided to provoke the SU-24, and immediately the author directly proposes to continue this way, stating that we need a strong Turkey! Which supports separatism in the Caucasus and Crimea and is a direct enemy of our current allies, and is clearly not against the conflict with us, despite all the cries of our observers that they (the Turks), the poor, are being "pushed" to this. So we obviously do not need a strong Turkey, because it is unlikely to be a friend in the foreseeable future. article is a solid minus.

    Who is Turkey and who is Russia?
    For starters, the author needs to understand who is who: who is a world power, and who is regional. Who is the center of power, and who rotates in orbit. Now when he understands this, then the article will be different, and now I have the impression that the Turks paid him for this article.
    Bottom line: article minus.
    Conclusion: it will not work to blame Erdogan and "whitewash" the Turks. Not that situation, and Erdogan calculated it, taking into account his own people. So, so ...
    There are two conclusions: the author, and whose will you be?

    Article minus, the author is still a provocateur. "To understand and forgive", then? - No problem! But why are they expecting concessions only from us? What prevents Turkey from taking the first conciliatory steps towards the injured party, after which it would be possible in principle to resume the political dialogue? All you need is:

    - Guilty plea;
    - A public apology to Russia and a public condolences to the relatives of the victims;
    - Compensation to the country for two lost cars;
    - Payments of lifelong monetary support to the families of the deceased pilot and marine.


    That's it!

    And who is torpedoing all this, are we, or what? No, Perdogan. For which the first two points of the necessary minimum are not feasible because he is too proud, and the second two because, apparently, he is too greedy. Therefore, in all likelihood, and he will get what he deserves. And, it seems to me, his losses will be calculated not only by reputation costs, wormy apples and rotten tangerines.
    And by the way, the Turks themselves in this place also never feel sorry for me - I don’t see the media for their sympathy for us or at least for the indirect disapproval of the actions of their own president and government.

    In general, the emphasis is made correctly in that the problem now is not in Russia and Turkey, but in the shameful act of Erdogan personally! He, in order not to slide into the abyss, needs to try to smooth out as soon as possible, at least somehow miss his personal meeting and do everything that is necessary in these cases. Russia is a generous country, but everything must be done in a timely manner and not crafty.

    Summing up the summary from the article, I singled out 2 main ideas from the author: (citations)

    1. We need a strong, friendly Turkey, just as we need a nationally minded and self-sufficient part of the Turkish elite, which understands the importance of serious relations with Russia.

    2. Erdogan should and should be thoroughly taught a lesson, but without offending Turkey and pushing its people away from Russia.

    The third thought suggests itself: we are ready to cooperate with Turkey without Erdogan. There can be no more faith for him. Let the Turkish elites decide what is dearer to them: lost money (quite sickly) or the leader of the nation, dreaming of the Great Ottoman Empire, but at the same time capable of idiotic actions. I really hope that our leadership and GDP in the first place will not talk with a person who is capable of vile deeds. Whoever he is for us. Starting to revive the Ottoman Empire, it would be worthwhile to look back at the neighbors and at least ask their opinion, not to mention taking into account interests. And now a unique case appears to test the unity of the Turkish nation. Either the Turks, together with Erdogan, go to the address that they can easily find in any Russian beer house and continue confrontation with Russia, or send Erdogan there in splendid isolation, and then, following all reconciliation procedures, return to good-neighborly relations with us. For this, the pressure on the turiks from our side should be maximum in all directions.

    The head of Turkish intelligence calls for the recognition of the IG

    November 26. FINMARKET.RU - The head of the Turkish National Intelligence Organization Hakan Fidan has come out in support of the Islamic State terrorist organization.
    "ISIS is a reality, and we must admit that we cannot destroy such a well-organized and popular state system as the Islamic State," said H. Fidan, quoted in the weekly issue of Rossiyskaya Gazeta on Thursday.
    He called on Western colleagues "to reconsider their views on the Islamic political movement, to set aside their cynical mentality and to thwart Vladimir Putin's plans to crush the Syrian Islamist revolutionaries."
    H. Fidan also believes that in order to resolve the problem it is necessary to open an IG office in Istanbul.
    According to the publication, many wounded IS fighters move to Turkish territory and receive assistance in Turkish military hospitals, in particular in the Hatay province.

    A group of Kurds raising funds for Christian refugees in Kurdistan wrote on their social media page that the Kurds wanted to avenge the dead Russian Su-24 pilots in the sky over Syria.

    “Dear Russia, we Kurds will be happy to avenge your pilots. Just give us MANPADS, we will make a good no-fly zone for Erdogan, ”the report said.

    And then from these MANPADS Syrian planes will fall.

        To Turkey, despite the fact that they fought only in the first of the two world wars, there was greater rejection than to any of the neighbors because of the Stabmbul centuries-old slave trade (unless the descendants of those who participated in it fly there).
        Serbian transplants from Kosovo also went to Israel through them.

    The position of many ordinary people supported by the Russian media (Solovyov’s guests deputies) regarding the dead pilot and the downed plane reminds me of pink shameful safety glasses to preserve the psyche and dignity.
    joke.
    a man bought a car, took his wife and mother-in-law with him, and went for a drive.
    driving on a highway, standing at the curb a man catches a wheelbarrow, a husband drives
    past and the wife begins to cut him, that would be a normal husband
    I’d give a ride like I would do a good deed and earn money
    he gives back and picks up a man. They are coming, he brings them
    takes a gun into the forest belt and puts it to the wife’s head. Thinks
    young beautiful - you have to fuck, did your dirty job, to mother-in-law -
    thinks the old can only fang, tore ... and the man thinks to her husband
    what to do with it - heaped a bunch of shit and made him eat. A husband ate shit,
    and the izvat said goodbye and disappeared ...
    They go further, the wife begins the first excuse ... but he did not fuck me,
    crawled a couple of times and that's it. Mother-in-law, in turn - and I say, by mouth
    took by the cheek just stuck it and that's it. The husband thinks he was eating shit ... as if
    otmazyvatsya and says - but I didn’t eat shit, I only picked potatoes from there ...

    "We need a strong, friendly Turkey, just as the nationally thinking and self-sufficient part of the Turkish elite, who understands the importance of serious relations with Russia, needs it."

    But personally, I don’t need a strong and friendly Turkey for nothing. She is, by definition, neither strong nor friendly. And to hope for something else is fiction and self-deception. We will not fight with them, it makes no sense, and we will punish without war, but playing with the Judas in arms is definitely not worth it. And by the way, about the groans of colleagues on the topic - this is damned Erdogan, but the Turks themselves are good, we still love them very much. It is worth looking at the reaction of these most beloved Turks to the news of our downed plane - they hugged, kissed, praised Erdogan, and in general arranged some kind of fiesta from our grief. And with these people I am offered to maintain good neighborly relations? Should these people be strong and friendly? Yes, let them continue to stand before the black gentleman in the pose of a beloved concubine, which Turkey, in essence, is.

    Most likely, he incorrectly assessed Russia's mild reaction to his spring (after Putin’s trip to Yerevan) and fall (after the start of the Syrian campaign) harsh statements against Moscow ... and Erdogan most likely decided that the Kremlin had bilateral relations and joint plans are the most expensive. Russia really needs Turkey, and Moscow will not get anywhere from it, especially in a conflict with the West.


    And here are our flaws. With someone it is possible to plant ceremonies and smooth the corners, but someone needs to be put in place immediately, in order to avoid provoking relapses of megalomania. We must finally learn how to respond to arrogant attacks immediately and in the face in full. Goodwill and peacefulness are good and worthy things, but you can not use them always and everywhere, because for some, they are simply incomprehensible and indicate exclusively weakness.
