Breaking: Putin Furious, Promises “Serious Consequences” After Turkey Shoots Down Russian War Plane

Russian President Vladamir Putin promises “serious consequences” after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet today.

No official word on the fate of the pilots, but at least one is believed to be dead, reports say.

“This incident stands out against the usual fight against terrorism,” Putin said. “Our troops are fighting heroically against terrorists, risking their lives. But the loss we suffered today came from a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists.”

According to The Hill:

“Turkey said it shot down a Russian warplane that violated Turkish airspace in an incident Russian President Vladimir Putin is calling a “stab in the back.”

The Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that it is looking into the circumstance surrounding the downed fighter jet in Syria, but stressed that the plane never entered Turkey.

Putin, speaking ahead of a meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, slammed Turkey over the incident, suggesting the NATO member and U.S. ally had back-stabbed Russia.

“This event is beyond the normal framework of fighting against terrorism. Of course our military is doing heroic work against terrorism,” Putin said, according to The Guardian. “But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists.”

Putin said in an address on television in Russia that the incident would result in “significant consequences including for relations between Russia and Turkey,” multiple news outlets reported.”

  1. In comparison to our weak-kneed administration and pansy of a President, I think I’m beginning to like Putin.

    • That’s the whole point! Try to get Americans involved any way they can, to drum up billions of dollars in new business!

      War is a business, like any industry. Those who build aircraft, tanks, ships, missiles, bombs, firearms and ammo, and the other 10,000 articles of military procurement NEED NEW CONTRACTS on a regular basis.

      Not ONE foreign war fought by the U.S. military industry was ever been a constitutional defense of these United States. For heavily-documented corroboration of this simple fact of life, read any of these five books:

      War is a Racket (General S. Butler)
      Overthrow: A Century of Regime Change From Hawaii to Iraq (S. Kinzer)
      The War Lovers: Roosevelt, Lodge, Hearst, and the Rush to Empire (E. Thomas)
      The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War (A. Bacevich)
      A Century of War (J. Denson)

  2. 1. Putin needs to TRAIN his PILOTS BETTER – – how EMBARRASSING.
    2.
    Putin needs to concentrate on NAVIGATION and COMMUNICATION. – – no MORE
    or this “I’m RUSSIAN and I don’t HAVE to respond to ANYONE.” – – and –
    – get your ass shot off.
    3. Turkey needs to train MORE pilots and IMPROVE their skills.

  3. My opinion is that this incident was created to draw in Putin to react to Turkey. If so, then Turkey would seek the support of that useless organization called NATO. If it led to a war, then obama would have others to fight his battles…this is how this ego centric narcissist always behaves…steps back, lets others do the fighting…he’s the girlie man.

  4. Obama’s comments, implying that Putin got what he deserved, is stupidity at the
    highest level. Americans who voted for this agitator have shown disgusting stupidity.

    • Probably because Obama is behind the shooting down of the aircraft in complicity with Erdogan the Muslim that wants a califate. They are both behind ISIS.

  5. Ironic, Russia has an Orthodox Christian nationalist president that got along with George Bush and does not care for Obama, the Muslim US president. The world is upside down.
