credibility shot down

all seeing eyeTurkey is rather obviously a branch of the USofA military world-wide hegemony. As are Israel and Egypt. They are armed, financed, and diplomatically supported directly and indirectly, overtly and covertly by Washington DC, the Feral Reserve, the Bank of International Settlements and, finally at the very top of the pyramid, the Rothschild empire (upon which, the sun never sets).

Well aware of what keeps them in power, the rulers of these countries do not do anything of any significance that isn’t tolerated by, approved by, and/or directed by their sponsors. Dancing to the same puppetmasters, lamestream media puts favorable spin on anything they possible can and squelches reporting of anything they cannot gloss over.

Internet publishers in Podunk know this. Russian tacticians know this. Everybody who counts knows this.

Yet, demonstrating military cooperation with the USofA who claim to be fighting AGAINST ISIS, the Russians were informing the Americans of their planned sorties, tactics, objectives and flight paths of those sorties against ISIS.

Given that the three Mediterranean puppets mentioned in the first paragraph illegally overfly borders thousands of times a year with armed military aircraft, one slight infraction or not should have no significance. But two Turkish F16 fighter jets flew 45 minutes from their base to hang around in Syrian airspace during the fateful mission before one peeled off and shot down the Russian airplane.
Then “rebel forces” in the region pulled out all the stops to prevent rescue efforts from safely evacuating the one flight crew member who survived the parachute drop under fire, and much more to come out alive and tell the story as it happened.

The Turkish version of the story is that the Russian jets violated Turkish airspace for 23 seconds, during which their F16s that happened to be in the area shot down the Russian threat.
Does this story have any buyers?

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday during a news conference the United States knew the flight path of the aircraft shot down by Turkey.

    “The American side, which leads the coalition that Turkey belongs to, knew about the location and time of our planes’ flights, and we were hit exactly there and at that time,” he said.

    He said Russia’s military had passed on flight details to the Americans.

    Putin then indirectly accused the US of colluding with Turkey to shoot down the plane.

    “Why did we pass this information to the Americans? Either they were not controlling what their allies were doing, or they are leaking this information all over the place,” he said.

    “And we proceed from the position that there will be no repeat of this, otherwise we’ll have no need of cooperation with anybody, any coalition, any country.”

Knowing this could happen, why were the Russians giving away a tactical advantage? From my seat in the show, they seem to be taking the higher ground on the geo-political stage. This isn’t being played for USofA lamestream media audiences. But where it is playing, the Russians are winning.

Why did the war planners breach the trust, lose credibility, and risk massive escalation?

I’ve been thinking they are running pell-mell to World War III; The Nuclear Grand Finale. And maybe that is exactly right, but the article below from an insider’s view sees this as possibly a calculated risk in an effort to ameliorate a significant tactical disadvantage.


Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Why did Turkey shoot down a Russian Air Force jet?

Turkey is so militarily inferior to Russia that it is unlikely Turkey would commit an act of war against Russia without encouragement from Washington. We might think that Turkey would feel shielded by NATO, but it is doubtful that many European members of NATO would risk nuclear annihilation by going to war with Russia in order to save Turkey from the consequences of such a reckless and irresponsible act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft and lying about it. Turkey has issued no apology and no believable explanation. Unless Erdogan has lost his mind, Washington is behind the shootdown, and the reason is Washington’s desperation to decode the new Russian technology that gives Russian forces total control over a battlefield, whether on land, sea, or air.

When the Russians deployed their forces to Syria they also deployed some new stealth technology. So far as I know they’ve only used this technology in Syria twice, once during their first sortie and one other time when some Israeli Air Force jets entered what they knew was Russian operational airspace.

As noted, the first use of this stealth technology was during the first Russian sortie. In accordance with protocols agreed to beforehand with Israel and the US, the Russians informed the US of their intent to launch a sortie. They did so an hour prior to the launch. When they did they also employed a new stealth technology. The technology effectively blinded both the US and Israel. None of the radars worked and most, if not all, satellite coverage was lost or compromised as well. But there’s more.

About a week after Putin’s UN General Assembly address the Israelis launched a sortie into Syria which flew into airspace that was under Russian operational control. Russian air controllers warned the Israelis that they had violated Russian controlled airspace. When the Israelis ignored the Russian air controllers, the stealth technology was employed a second time. The Israeli aircraft are equipped with two radars, one for fire acquisition and the other for fire control. Both are advanced and employ frequency-skipping technology to avoid being jammed. Both radars were effectively jammed. These aircraft have multiple telemetry data-links to their base. These were shut down. The only communications channel left was the high-frequency AM band normally used by civilian air traffic controllers. After the stealth technology was turned on and it was clear to the Russians that the Israelis knew they had been shut down, the Russian air traffic controllers used this AM band to tell the Israelis to scram. The Israelis complied.

Whatever this technology is, it’s a game changer and I’m certain that breaking this technology has been given an extremely high priority.

So why did Turkey shoot down the Russian jet?

I suspect somebody wants the Russians to start using this stealth technology more often, often enough for its weaknesses to be exposed. Shooting down that Russian jet might just get the Russians motivated to do that.

If I’m correct I bet every Raven and ELINT specialist in the business has been deployed to that theater of operations to hack this one! One can only imagine how many resources are being amassed.

Here is an alternative view from Alexander Mercouris, who sees the incident as a blunder made by an out-of-control President Erdogan of Turkey. Mercouris writes that the reckless and irresponsible act has turned NATO against Erdogan and that even Obama is disturbed.
