No matter really if they warned on the approach to the border. The time line as Python shows does not jive.
The fact that they crossed was not a provocation in my opinion. They dropped no ordinance in Turkey. Turkey is playing games with this.
Those terrorist "rebels" shooting up the Pilot and WSO while they were floating back to earth. That is a serious problem for these "rebels" because the back lash after that is going to be great in my opinion.
I think crossing into a sovereign nation's airspace is practically the definition of "provocation ". Not dropping bombs makes it not an attack, but certainly it's a provocation.
I understand that. But I thought maybe Turkey should understand that the way the border is ---makes it a easy situation for anyone to fly across that finger of the border.
