NATO denounces Russian incursion into Turkish airspace

The United States and NATO denounced Russia on Monday for violating Turkish airspace and Ankara threatened to respond, reporting two incursions in two days and raising the prospect of direct confrontation between the former Cold War adversaries.

NATO held an emergency meeting in Brussels of ambassadors from its 28 member states to respond to what Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg called “unacceptable violations of Turkish airspace” after a Russian jet crossed its frontier with Syria on Saturday.

A Russian warplane again violated Turkish airspace on Sunday, a Turkish foreign ministry official said late on Monday, prompting Ankara to summon Moscow’s ambassador.

    Gee, who controls NATO? Yep, the US. The Turks have been involved in destroying Syria for years, and they actually thought their air space was sacrosanct? Like, it’s OK for Turkey and Israel to violate Syrian Airspace, but if Russia goes after the BAD Terrorists, then NATO will start screaming? NATO is a joke. Look at how NATO allowed and encouraged the slave and sex slave trade in Croatia because NATO military personnel were getting paid off to look the other way. NATO is a joke full of the kind of people you wouldn’t want to live next door. Traffickers, Killers.
