Thanksgiving 2015 – Turkey on the Table – ITEL Radio – 11.28.15
Inside the Eye – Live! for Saturday, November 28, 2015, returned to Amman, Jordan, for a shortened Thanksgiving Holiday Special. On the table? Turkey. And more Turkey. Turkey’s shoot down of a Russian SU-24 inside of Syrian territory dominated the show as Inside the Eye – Live! examined the circumstances and fallout of Turkey’s support of their mercenary armies operating inside of Syria.
LiFi and listener calls completed a fun and faced paced two hour Thanksgiving holiday shows.
Turkey Downs Russian SU-24 under Absurd Rationalizations
Turkey’s shoot down of a Russian SU-24 in Syrian airspace highlighted Syria’s role in protecting Israel crafted mercenary forces currently operating and fighting in Syria. The downing of the Russian SU-24 occurred during operations by the Russian aircraft in traditional Turkman areas of Turkey, a people closely linked to and supported by Turkey.
Turkey’s rush to lead with press releases about how the Russian aircraft was warned 10 times and strayed into Turkish airspace for a whole 14 seconds was mocked and scoffed by most intelligent media and intelligence organs.
Many theories as to why the Russian plane was targeted, but one of the more probable theories was that this was a rogue hit using Turkish military assets in an effort to exact revenge and perhaps protect Turkish oil business through the theft of Syrian oil that is re-exported from Turkey to Israel and Asian ports.
Russia, for its part, has been aggressively targeting the economic wing of the mercenary force through hitting oil tankers and storage facilities.
Russia Responds to Turkey’s Provocation
Russia, in return, deployed S-400 anti-aircraft missile batteries that now cover nearly half of the entire airspace of Turkey, as well as half of Israel, most of Jordan, parts of Iraq, and all of Syria.
In addition, Moscow cut all military communications to Turkey and began implementing economic sanctions against Turkey, including an immediate cessation of all visa free travel by Turks into Russia, a ban on hiring of Turks to work within the Russian Federation, as well as increasing scrutiny of agricultural products bound from Turkey to the Russian Federation.
Russia also went on a public relations offensive, directly linking Erdogan and Turkey to being sponsors and supporters of international terror units, stealing oil and reselling it on global markets, as well as “stabbing” Russia “in the back”.
