they probably should'nt have followed the US's orders to fly into Syrian airspace. Guess we know some about the Syrian air defense capabilities now though.

Fuck Syria !

Yeah, I thought they were alive as well.

These guys died by being shot out of the sky at hundreds of miles an hour by a shitty fucking Russian made AA system, their last moments were sheer terror and violent.

I thought they had found their helmets next to their ejection seats?

What are the chances they got up and walked the wrong direction and died of thirst?

Sorry for their families

I guess they didn't eject? RF-4  is the reconnaissance variant of the F-4 Phantom. I wouldn't be surprised if that was a old American bird. Condolences to the families and the people of Turkey.

Liars? Who follow Islam? Color me shocked!

Do you expect the Syrians to be strictly honest?





Really?

By "shitty Russian AA system" I meant as in Russian and shit for those that did not detect my vibe. I know they make decent gear for blowing planes out of the sky.

RIP pilots.

Hope they review the flight recorder

I think if the Turks were going to fo, they would have already fent over this.  It tells my either the Turks don't want to fight, unlikely, or their jet was were it wasn't supposed to be.  The Syrians might have had a good shoot here.

There is no flight recorder on old jets like the RF-4.





The RF-4 was flying at wave top level. When it was hit, it probably pitched down into the water before the crew had time to react.



And the AKP isn't our best friend.

This.  The Turks have been promised some land if they conquer Syria for NATO.  NATO wants the Muslim Bros to run that nation too.  

BTW, just because the Zero Administration and Hitlery want Assad out and the parrots of the MSM keep feeding the public info about the "atrocities" committed by Assad, most of Arfcom hates Syria?!  WTF?  That same MSM never mentions when the Muslim Bros blow up something and kill civilians.  Does Arfcom really want to see Syria go the way of Libya and Egypt?  Is it really in our interest to see the Mus Bros have another nation?

Did anyone else see the apology? They apologized saying they thought it was an Israeli jet. Assad says he is saddened by this and that he hopped it had been an Israeli jet because that would have made him and the country happy.  

And to echo an above statement

FUCK SYRIA!

More likely old West German.
Link Posted: 7/4/2012 1:09:03 PM EDT
Not sure if they ejected or not, but the reports I read stated that they haven't found the plane yet.  The bodies were found near each other on the seafloor.

If you're in the water, trying not to drown, sometimes you might take things off to help you try to swim.

Things like boots, or helmets.

Or the Syrians might be lying.

Or something else entirely.

Even without massacring it's own people lets see how Syria does:



1. Russian ally

2. State sponsor of terrorism

3. Syrians have probably teamed with Iran to ensure russian weapons got into Iraq to kill Americans.





I'm sure the list can be longer but based on just that I say, Fuck Syria.
