    I tend to think whoever told you this is a liar or a fool (or both). Please speak with an Arab from the middle east to confirm this, not with an Indonesian on Facebook or WA.

    Eh? As originally an Iraqi Sunni group, ISIS is (unofficially) supported by many in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey to destroy the current Shia government and Iran's influence in the area.

    The bad thing is that I have heard this before; bad 'Muslims' are automatically marked and stigmatized as Shia.

    Thanks for the clarification; the nature of the conflict is much more easily understood when you know the religious underpinnings of the protagonists.

    It's a joke closer to the mark if you substitute "Ben Carson" for "Trump," although they are both pretty much empty suites when it comes to foreign policy knowledge.

    The Donald reportedly says that US should have invaded Mexico, but later he corrected himself stating that his campaign manager has just informed him that Assad is not the President of Mexico.

    I don’t understand why the US & its coalition partners are calling for the ouster of Assad. Even going as far as supporting rebels to fight the government. Good or bad, Assad is the legitimate ruler of Syria, at least until before Arab Spring erupted, he was President of a united Syria recognized by all countries of the world. Should it be Syrians deciding for Syria, not other countries deciding what is for Syria? Other countries interfering and telling another country what to do is bullying. Why don’t they tell Kim Jong-un to step down? No, they can’t because North Korea cannot be bullied.
    The world's failure to oppose one dictator doesn't mean we should tolerate all dictators equally. It's like you're saying if we fail to catch and prosecute one criminal we should not prosecute any and all crimes in the interest of equality.

    Assad is no more legit than any of his rivals. In Syria, power and its ruthless application rules.

    Talking about him, he gets more and more popular in Europe. Many feel the US has no idea what to do about Syria and he (even if he is ganging up with the wrong guy and it's all about their own interests in the region) at least takes action. A recent interview in which he addressed the 'root cause' of the problems with Turkey added even more support.

    Putin popular in europe ! I dont think so , im sure hitler is one of his heroes , before the shooting down episode erdogan was in moscow , warning putin and his minions about incursions into turkish airspace , but of course putin can do what he wants, in his own mind ,hence 1 less mig , bear in mind assad had claims on the area of turkey where the mig was shot down , so of course putin will support his chum .

    Turkey and Russia are traditional enemies, so it should be a surprise to no one that the two are at each other's throats.

    Both Korean Air incidents happened during the Soviet-era, a different time then. Yesterday’s bad guys can be today’s good guys (and vice-versa).

    Always great to have some distraction from the internal issues.

So it looks like the jet was shot down just as it was leaving Turkey or it was already in Syria (it crashed in Syrian territory), it’s totally unnecessary.
