BBC: "Let's You and Him Fight!"

Neither Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan nor Russia's Vladimir Putin show any sign of backing down

Turkey warns Russia not to 'play with fire' over downed jet


The BBC (Biggest and Best Calumny) is this morning doing what it does best....stirring the pot and creating dissension amongst other nations.  As the official "Voice of the Neocon Cabal" (VNC) it's like the puny coward in the schoolyard...baiting and urging on the bigger boys to fight...all the while standing in the shadows...like the mendacious coward that it is.

Here is an "analysis" from the BBC:

Strongmen's war of words: Analysis by BBC Turkish's Ebru Dogan
On Thursday, Turkey's President Erdogan seemed to offer an olive branch to Moscow when he told France 24 TV: "If we had known it was a Russian plane, maybe we would have warned it differently." On Friday, he accused Moscow of "playing with fire" and "lying".
Did he change his rhetoric dramatically in less than 24 hours? Hardly. The first message was delivered to a Western audience, the second, to a domestic.
Turkey's Western allies in Nato fully backed Ankara in the crisis - but also questioned in more hushed tones whether 17 seconds of airspace violation was good enough reason to shoot down a plane.
Despite the harsh rhetoric on Friday, Mr Erdogan also repeated his offer to meet Mr Putin next week. But Mr Putin made clear that he wants an apology before he agrees to a meeting. The war of words between the two strong men of the East shows no sign of abating.

In a televised speech, Mr Erdogan warned Russia it was "playing with fire to attack the Syrian opposition, who have international legitimacy, under the pretext of fighting against Daesh".
He said Moscow was also playing with fire to use the downing of the jet "as an excuse to make unacceptable accusations against us", and accused Russians of "mistreating" Turkish citizens who were in the country for a trade fair.
Mr Erdogan said he hoped to meet Mr Putin face-to-face on the sidelines of the climate summit in Paris next week. "I would like to bring the issue to a reasonable point. We are disturbed that the issue has been escalated."
While he has refused to apologise, Mr Erdogan did say on Thursday that had Turkey known the plane was Russian, "may be we would have warned it differently".
Turkey's claim that it did not know the plane was Russian has been firmly rejected by Mr Putin. He said the plane was easily identifiable and its coordinates had been passed on to Turkey's ally, the US.

I love reading the BBC...it gets my adrenaline going.  I keep it as my mainpage on "Explorer" so I can keep abreast of all the lies and provocations...right from the horse's mouth.
