The Syrian army commandos seemed to understand good ethics and rescued the surviving Russian pilot, who was later returned to the Russian air base (http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/russia-pilots-fate-turkey-1.3335937). Torture is a war crime, no matter how evil your enemy is. Why not just shoot in the head if killing is necessary? Russia is deploying S-400 in Syria, whose air defense zone extends far into Turkey. It seems that Russia is determined to retaliate, provided a good excuse.
Why pick a bomber like Su-24? What a coward! Russia has Su-27 and Su-30 flying in the Syrian sky. Why not them? Is F-16 a fighter too outdated? In any case, I am not into that. It seemed that Russia was planning to use fighters exclusively after this incident, but the deployment of missile ships and defense systems may suggest the possibility of sticking to bombers. After all, Russia wants Turkey to try again. If Turkey does send F-16 again, there will probably be 3 of them as usual. Russia can down 3 instead of 1, with interest paid.
Well, Russia likes a hard ball. No comments. It makes sense, because now NATO looks like the coward, and not Russia. Everyone speaks good American English.
