Reader comment on item: Why Erdo─čan Decided to Shoot down a Russian Plane

Submitted by Waiel (India), Dec 12, 2015 at 12:48

I see good and clear anlaytic way of looking at the shooting down of Russian plave by Erdogan govt.

While I think Ankara was a forced corrisdor for arms and all Jihadists and Mercenaries to pass into Syria ,de facto Calipha Erdogan took full advantage of America_NATO support to achieve his own dream to declare himslef the new Calipha .He will pay for his misadventure over Syria and support to ISIS .He is allowed to earn from buying oil from ISIS , harbouring Jihadists and selling arms to them without knowing that Turkey is the target for ailing Europe .Otherwise why they are rewarding him with 3 Billion AIDS and fast track entry into EU after shooting down the Russian jet ? It may looks like the Gas and energy requirement for Europe and the vital role of Turkey but the rise of radicalism inside Turkey will be a time bomb.I will be disappointed if the Turkish army does not step in to prevent the fall down of secular Turkey .
