The Crusader War Is Erupting Between Russia And Turkey In Syria As Russian MIG-29 placed two Turkish F-16s Under Radar Lock
The unfolding developments between Russia and Turkey reflected a dangerous new superpower entanglement in the war in Syria showing how the situation could escalate and turn on a dime into a full fledged war between two regional superpowers. On Saturday 10 F-16s scrambled at the Turkish-Syrian border during which a Russian MIG-29 placed two Turkish F-16s under radar lock for five minutes and 40 seconds.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said during an interview with Haber Turk television that NATO-member Turkey would enforce its rules of engagement if and when its airspace is violated again. Those rules call for the treatment of any element approaching the Turkish border from Syria as an enemy. So by this, Turkey is warning Russia that the next time it will be open season and a war could erupt between Russia and Turkey.
“The Turkish armed forces have their orders,” Davutoglu warned. “The necessary will be done even if it’s a bird that violates Turkey’s border … Our rules of engagement are clear.”
This means war.
