    Should have been avoided but the Kremlin doesn't like telling anybody anything, especially the Turks.

    I don't know. Russian has been trying to work with any allies over this. They say they were not in Turkey airspace. Who knows.

    Turkeys normally become overly defensive this time of year.

    Well, the Turks say they gave Russia at least ten verbal warnings, the Russians say they were only in the airspace less than twenty seconds, and now Obama is mocking Putin. Conflicting accounts all around but this can't be good. Sounds like Turkey picked a side, not good to poke the bear.

    Turkey is a terrorist sponsoring state. They are mad Russia is so effective against Daesh. Putin now has a war ship off the coast ready to hit anymore shenanigans from Turkey.
