It’s yet to be confirmed and I have only found one source for this story, but Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu says he gave the order to shoot down the Russian jet a few days ago. The Russian pilot has finally spoken out about the ordeal saying they were given no warning by the Turkish jet and said they were not in Turkish airspace when it happened.
That would mean it had nothing to do with the current bad-boy de jour, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. After all, it’s the Prime Minister of Turkey who serves as the Commander in Chief of the armed forces. Not the president.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu today revealed that he personally gave the order to down the Russian Su-24 fighter jet that lead to the death of one pilot.
“Despite all the warnings, we had had to destroy the aircraft” Davutoğlu told a meeting of his AK party. “The Turkish Armed Forces carried out orders given by me personally” ThinkPol
“A Russian airman who has survived the downing of his warplane says Turkish jets did not issue any warnings. Capt. Konstantin Murakhtin said Wednesday on Russian television that his plane was flying over Syrian territory and didn’t violate Turkish airspace.” AP
ThinkPol provides no link to reference the statement they claim the Prime Minister made accepting responsibility for the shoot-down order.
It should be noted that this morning, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said in an interview that he thought one possible explanation for the shooting down of the Russian jet might be “reasons of domestic politics”
As it just so happens, today, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced the conclusion of their efforts to form the 64th government of Turkey.
As expected, former Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan was not offered a new seat in the government. Babacan was very popular with the neoliberal investor class and globalist business leaders who took interest in this recent election. In short, the decision to exclude this man by Davutoglu and Erdogan was a slap in the face to the Western masters of the debt servitude universe.
“There was particular speculation about the fate of former Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan, a darling of investors who has long played a leading role in managing the economy. His possible appointment was seen as a key barometer of how much influence Erdoğan wields. Ultimately, Babacan was not offered any seat in the cabinet, although he was tipped for a possible role at the Foreign Ministry.” Hurriyet Daily
Babacan had said he wanted full control over the economy.
Babacan has an interesting past:
Babacan had the duty to steer a painful economic reform program, which was backed by multi-billion-dollar IMF loans…He stayed always away from the rough-and-tumble of the Turkish political arena and focused solely on the economic reform, acting rather as a technocrat without indulging into populism…
So let’s review: just at the moment when the popular party is forming it’s new government after the election without the globalist Bilberberger neoliberal technocrat loved by Washington and the IMF… it just so happens that someone gives the order to shoot down a Russian plane, screwing up Turkey’s good relationship with Russia (and the Turkish Stream pipeline) and putting the new government into a new crisis.
Does that do it justice?
And what did Lavrov say?
“Reasons of domestic politics” may have caused our plane to be shot down.
Makes you think doesn’t it.
