Obama would be crazy to allow the Turks to drag NATO into an armed conflict involving the Russians and Iranians. It ends there - I don't anticipate any retaliation from Turkey on this.

On a less serious note, Hillary is probably twisting Erdogan's balls to make him accept a fabricated apology from Syria as I type this.

He's right. Iran is backing Syria.

What's the purpose of shooting down one plane?

I wish I had an answer. Though if the plane wasn't in Syrian airspace, the whole thing would have never happened.

Another question is 'what the hell were the Turks thinking, stirring a hornets' nest of this magnitude?'
