Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Reportedly Shot

The above photo, released by the Associated Press, is NOT the Ambassador to Turkey from Russia, but is from the same incident. The status of the Ambassador is unknown, but several people were shot by a gunman at a photo gallery in Ankara.

This is a really big deal. There are currently protests going on in Turkey demanding Russia get out of Syria.

Now this.

This comes after the Turks shot down a Russian fighter jet. Tension has been escalating for the past several years between the two countries. This is only going to make things worse and move the two toward war.

As Turkey becomes more Islamic, expect Putin to act. He abhors radical Islam.
