Turkey grounds flight from russia to Syria

Submitted by: Goshin @ 01:02 PM | Thursday, October 11, 2012 | (url: http://www.bbc.co...)

Again, you wont find this on the headlines front pages in america

Turkey is accusing russia of sending a big ass plane full of 30 passengers to syria. Also on board, lots of ammo and guns for the syrian military to help exterminate its peoples more effectively

A Syrian-bound plane intercepted by Turkey was carrying Russian-made defence equipment destined for Syria's defence ministry, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.

"Passenger aircraft cannot carry ammunition and defence equipment," Mr Erdogan said, adding, "unfortunately there was such equipment on board".

Turkish jets forced the plane, coming from Moscow, to land in Ankara.

Syria and Russia have denied the plane was carrying illegal cargo.

They have accused Turkey of putting lives in danger.

The Syrian Air Airbus A320, with about 30 passengers on board, was intercepted on Wednesday evening by two Turkish fighters and escorted to the capital's Esenboga airport.

Turkey said previously it had received an intelligence tip-off that it had illegal cargo on board.

Russia demands Turkey explain intercepted jet - Europe - Al Jazeera English

Moscow has accused Ankara of endangering Russian lives after Turkey forced a Syrian passenger plane to land and seized what it suspected was military equipment being ferried from Russia to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Damascus said on Thursday the interception of the Syrian Air plane was an act of piracy, further heightening tensions between the neighbours after Turkey's chief of staff warned his troops would respond with greater force if shells from Syria continued to hit Turkish territory.

Military jets escorted the Damascus-bound Airbus A-320,which was carrying around 30 passengers from Moscow, into Ankara airport late on Wednesday after Turkey received intelligence that it was carrying "non-civilian cargo".


Russia wades into intercepted jet row

Russia, which has stood behind Assad's government during an 18-month-old uprising that has killed some 30,000 people, angrily demanded an explanation.

"The lives and safety of the passengers were placed under threat", the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that 17 of its nationals on board were refused access to Russian diplomatic staff.

it's cute that turkey's getting involved in the syria situation trying to prevent bashar's government from obtaining weapons to quell the uprising, when turkey itself has such a horrendous human rights track record, and has never restrained itself from using military force to quell dissent

still, one has to question how much military cargo can be concealed in practical fashion on an A320... and how many of these flights would have to be carried out in order to contribute to the syrian governments military to any significant degree ? sounds like a crock of shit to me, but even if im wrong and it's LOADED with weapons, i still say fuck turkey and it's hypocrite piece of shit government

I. Where Americans Go for News | Pew Research Center for the People and the Press

50% of americans go to fox news or cnn to get their news

nytimes, if it's anything like Time or Newsweek numbers for people looking online at it, sits around 12%


meaning at least 50% and as much as 88% of americans are not informed of things that may get to a point where we are bombing syria with NATO allies to quell that rebellion as in Libya


2004 numbers
let me see if i can get newer data


6% of internet users get their news form nytimes, 60%+ of people watch foxnews, cnn, msnbc for news

Actually we didn't quell the rebellion in Libya, we supported it. We'd probably do the same in Syria but Syria is pals with Russia.

Did you hear Russia isn't going to renew the Arms agreement of dismantling Chemical and Nuclear arms?
