Turkey shot down a Russian jet today. Since Vladimir Putin is a real leader, not the featherweight we have here in America, I’ll bet he made it crystal clear what price Turkey would pay for this. Let’s listen in:
Certainly, we will analyze what’s happening very seriously, and today’s tragic event will have serious consequences for Russian-Turkish relations. We have always treated Turkey as not just a close neighbor, but as a friendly state. I don’t know in whose interests today’s incident is, but it’s not in our interest. And instead of immediately establishing the necessary contacting us, the Turkish authorities immediately their NATO partners, as if we downed a Turkish jet.
How….very Obama-like. But we’ll see what happens. This intervention just keeps getting worse and worse.
