Russia Sends Warship Off Syrian Coast To “Destroy Any Threats To Russian Planes”
The Russians are escalating their presence in the middle east coming off one of their fighter jets and a rescue helicopter getting shot down.
Despite demands from France’s Hollande, America’s Obama, and NATO’s Stoltenberg that this situation not esclate, it appears Putin is not taking the shooting down of a fighter jet lying down. The seemingly cagey confirmation by NATO and Obama of Turkey’s claims that Russia invaded its airspace has been rebuked by Russia which claims the Hmeimim airbase radar shows the attacking Turkish plane violating Syrian airspace. In response, Russia is moving a Cruiser ‘Moskva’ off the coast to strengthen air-defenses – just as French and US carriers are on their way.
They are event tweeting about it. They are pretty upset about it.

But don’t fret, this is happening as both the French carrier Charles de Gaulle and the US carrier CVN-75 USS Harry S. Truman are on their way to the same area. What could possibly go wrong?
