    For the day of the Lord is at hand? *Isaiah 10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. *Isaiah 13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. *Leviticus 25:23* (Daniel 11:36)

  • Personally who the hell cares if the Syrians shot down a Turkish F14 fighter plane, the more Turkish planes they shoot down the more merrier. Turkey has aligned themselves with the enemies of Israel. You can see pictures(albeit some time ago) of Abdulla Gul President of Turkey holding hands with president (Dinner-jacket)of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Bashar Al-Assad of Syria. Turkey has chosen her friends badly, one day the Army will revolt against this retreat into Ottoman Islamism, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Abdullah Gul and others of the islamist party may even pay the ultimate price for what they have done to Turkey with their lives.

    Still they invaded their air space, if it was Israel or the U.S, they would had done the same thing to a foreign military jet.

    Well of course! That’s it! It was an jewish plane! How could the world have overlooked that? Well… that makes it alright.

    What morons.

    It DOESN’T MATTER where the plan was from, this was an act of WAR from Syria. They knew exactly who they were shooting down.

    Come on, does Syria think the rest of the world is populated by idiots? Seriously?

    The only idiots in this story are Syria.
