Can you blame us? Name an animal after our country, then make up a holiday where you slaughter and eat it. That's just wrong... Dodgy

To be fair, the wild turkey is an intelligent, crafty bird. Benjamin Franklin even campaigned to have it named the national bird rather than the bald eagle.

I tell you what.... those two words (allah ackbar) are beginning to really fucking piss me off now.

Spoiler Alert:
"Turkmen" does not mean the Turks.
Syrian rebels seem to have fired at the helicopter.
Russia claims the pilots are still alive.

Who are the Turkmen that are reported to have killed two Russian pilots?

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

They're not turks, but they speak Turkish and, they have ties with turkey left from the ottoman era. Media and some people here were outraged when Russia started bombing them few days ago. So it may just be what caused our pilots to fire that shot. I know our current government has not focused on ISIS as much, this is due to old saying, enemy of my enemy is my friend. ISIS has been pounding the kurds, whom have been terrorizing Turkey for over 30 years, very few of people here feel any sympathy for the Kurds. It isn't over the smuggled petroleum, as the western media likes to point out, we have a lot more interest on Russian energy and, tourism than the petroleum coming from ISIS. For me though, hasn't made any difference, I still pay $2.2 per liter of gas, as far as ISIS oil goes, I'd like to see them drown in it.

As I read the headlines the thought of this regional conflict escalating into a full blown “shitshow” as izel said is more probable now than not.

The only reason to bend over in that event is to kiss your ass good-bye. Weeping

You're told to drop and cover for the same reasons flight attendants show you how to put on a life vest in the event the jetliner you are on plummets from 30,000 feet doing 500 mph, which is to say to provide some hope in the last seconds of your life that you might survive the event.

The Russians have been playing games with Turkish airspace for some time now. It's about time the Turks blew one of their airplanes out of the sky.

Personally I doubt that this whole debacle will end up in a war between Russia and anybody.
I don't know much about Erdogan, but I think Putin can be relied upon to see that it's a war that he can't benefit from and not go down the war-path. I can see international relations being sour for a long-time onward, maybe even attempts at economic retribution, but not a war.
