Russia warns of ‘serious consequences’ after Nato country downs Russian military jet for first time since 1953
“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: It is obvious that Turkey illegally shot down the Russian jet today in order to get NATO to fight against Russia. This attack was nothing more than a provocation to war. But the Turks have picked a fight with the wrong country, Putin is not an all-talk sissy boy like Barack Obama is. Make no mistake, Putin will issue a response, and it’s going to be a hard one to swallow. The Russian bear is awake, Magog doesn’t take prisoners. Just ask Ezekiel…
A ‘monstrous’ new crisis has begun after Turkey shot down a Russian military plane, sparking fears of a war. Vladimir Putin has accused the Turks of a ‘stab in the back’, branding them ‘accomplices of terrorists’.
Russia warned the incident – the first time a Nato country has downed a Russian military jet since 1953 – would have ‘serious consequences’. And a leading Moscow military analyst said war was ‘most likely’.
Putin has broken off any military contact with Turkey in the fight against ISIS and is deploying a warship, with an air defence system, to the Mediterranean Sea. The cruiser will destroy ‘any targets representing a potential danger’ to Russian forces in Syria.

Its defence ministry also said that Russian bombers carrying out airstrikes in Syria will now be escorted by jet fighters.
Britain has already declared that military back-up is on standby to support Turkey in any revenge attack by Putin’s forces. President Barack Obama also pledged America’s support for Turkey following a phone call with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

Two Russian pilots were shot dead by Syrian rebels as they parachuted from their burning warplane, it was claimed yesterday. A third was killed during a mission to rescue the pair as another rebel group shot a helicopter with an anti-tank missile.
Disturbing footage shows a dead pilot covered in blood on the ground as anti-government fighters gather chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’.
Another video appeared to show forces shooting at the pilots with machine guns after they had ejected from the Sukhoi Su-24, which had been blasted by two Turkish F-16 jets for violating the country’s airspace. Gunfire can be heard as one of the rebels cries: ‘Don’t shoot, let’s capture them as hostages.’
The rebels – ethnic Turks backed by Turkey and fighting dictator Bashar al-Assad, who has been supported by Russia – said the pilots were killed as they parachuted over north-west Syria.
Last night Russia confirmed the death of only one of the pilots and the crew member killed during the rescue mission. Footage also emerged of rebels firing the anti-tank missile at one of the two helicopters sent to rescue the pilots. source
