New reports indicate the Turkish version of the Phantom shoot-down incident are completely fabricated. The Turkish plane was shot down inside Syrian airspace by artillery with a range of only 1.5 miles. According to this information, the plane had to be flying low to the ground, in Syrian airspace, and very slowly to be hit by this type of defense system. Now, why do you think Turkey would do that?
“U.S. intelligence indicates that a Turkish warplane shot down by Syrian forces was most likely hit by shore-based antiaircraft guns while it was inside Syrian airspace, American officials said, a finding in tune with Syria’s account and at odds with Turkey….”
“The use of antiaircraft fire would suggest the Turkish plane was flying low to the ground, and slowly, U.S. officials said—though Syria said the jet was traveling at 480 miles an hour.
If hit by antiaircraft fire, the jet likely came closer to the Syrian shoreline than Turkey says, U.S. officials said. ” DP News
The new meeting is over and done with and according to all sources, Hillary didn’t get the regime change mandate she was looking for. Apparently Russia and China held firm in the face of Hillary’s hysterical warmongering and there will be no preconceived arraignment that Assad must go in support of a new puppet regime in Syria.
“After the first session of the international work group meeting in Geneva on Saturday, Lavrov told a news conference there were no preconditions to Syria’s transition process and no attempt to exclude any group from a proposed national unity government. The key point was that the agreement did not attempt to impose a process on Syria, he said.” DP News
Perhaps not so coincidentally, the Israeli’s have come out with a new line of propaganda… RUSSIA shot down the Turkish jet. Yes, that is the story….
“We would not be surprised if these Russian experts, if they didn’t push the button, at least were beside the Syrian officers who did it,” an Israeli air force source told the British paper.” Haaretz
“It definitely has Russian fingerprints on it,” a diplomat told the Sunday Times. He summarized the Russian message: “Syria is not Libya and any attempt to impose a ‘no fly zone’ over Syria will face one of the most formidable air defenses on Earth and will cost any attacker dearly.” YNet
So Russia stands between the NATO regime change efforts and Israel jumps in accusing Russia of downing the Turkish fighter. Interesting.
Also of note, the so-called “rebels” (aka “terrorist regime change actors”) are demanding the US send them arms in-spite of the fact that they have “Islamists” fighting with them. As you may recall, even Hillary Clinton had to eventually admit there are members of al Qaeda inside Syria trying to help her destabilize the country.
“Islamists are among the most effective fighters against the Syrian leadership, some opposition figures said, and Washington needs to know that while these rebels are conservative Muslims they are a far cry from Afghan-style jihadi militants.” Reuters
Meanwhile, a massive car-bombing took place immediately after the announcement of the decision made by the international Syrian conflict group. Apparently some of those terrorists didn’t like the outcome of the meeting so they are stepping up their efforts. 85 people are reported dead.
The low intensity warfare operation rolls on while limited hangout specialists continue to demonize Assad.
