Beaver IMO you have confused two statements. Putin says he would like to see a grand coalition led by the UN. At the same time he says that short of that Russia will continue to cooperate with the US led coalition if there are no repetitions of acts like the Turkish attack. pl
b That is not what Reuters says pl
b IMO you need better citation for the F-15 thing than the John Batchelor show. I believe Sputnik is a Russian publication. Putin has told Hollande that Russia is willing to participate in the coalition led by the US. Would he do that if he thought the US was complicit in this act of treachery? pl
Hank P Never heard of them. pl
Ryan I ate in enlisted mess halls most of my life as a dependent, enlisted man and officer and the food was uniformly excellent. IMO you are just a sorehead who didn't like being drafted and who crapped on this lieutenant in revenge. pl
FB Ali I do not agree. IMO Erdogan is a bull headed Turk who thinks (like Natanyahu) that "the Americans are easy to push." pl
Wyoming "We are sounding a bit inbred I think." I'm sure you have a lot of other stuff in you as I do. pl

Babak Why? I thought you were paying attention to the conversation here. The US Government is now run by self-obsessed mental midgets enslaved by their narcissist master who is incapable of accepting the idea that he could have been wrong. pl

In the US today is the day of Thanksgiving. Various regions claim primacy in the establishment of this treasured American holiday. In Canada it is quite another day celebrated earlier in the Autumn, The American holiday celebrates the survival of... Continue reading

trey N If the intercept people were American it WILL leak to the press. BTW if your country sends you on mission with a foreign army that does not make you a mercenary. It's just your job. pl
Trey N How about a strike from a Klingon war bird in orbit projecting a hologram that just looked like an F-16? It could happen! pl
Babak "and may have been strongly complicit in its creation." And you believe that as well? What is the evidence? pl
Richard "they had US F-15s flying cover for them" Prove it. So, you think the US flew top cover for Turks bombing the YPG Kurds whom we support? How does that make sense to you? pl
JJackson Military aircraft do not have "black boxes." pl
"American officials feel Turkey is largely to blame for overreacting to what was a relatively minor violation of national airspace. Turkey says the Russian plane strayed just over a mile into its airspace, and was there for only 17 seconds... Continue reading

Richard Why would they need "cover?" pl
will Oh, bull shit. Russia is a mighty country and Turkey is still the third world. If it were not then they would not have re-elected
Babak I think you mean USS Stark. pl
